    The plate umpire hasn’t been very good today for either team. Jimmy Tooley getting the job done out of the bullpen. Six outs to go.

    Now 8-5 after 5. Question: Do you go to the bullpen? Answering my own question - with Edeburn's pitch count I guess you do.

    The IUP bats are on fire today. Two bombs, several laser shots, and now an 8-3 lead over the defending national champs. This team seems to believe more and more with each game.

    I agree kind of like how a lot of minor league baseball teams have changed to rather silly names.

    I was at an event earlier this summer that had a raffle basket sponsored by some office at IUP. It included a squirrel stuffed animal that at least I understood.
    The Richmond VA minor league team is the Fighting Squirrels. So is Mary Baldwin University, also in Virginia.

    I actually like the rationale behind the Crimson Hawk and the native American significance of the Red Hawk, even if it is a little contrived. Anyway, it's Crimson Hawks and they aren't changing it.

    Can't watch every pitch this morning but IUP is now up 4-2 after 2 and a half.

    It's ok now. IUP up 2-0 after a half inning on Dunn's dead center 2 run HR (400+ feet).

    Yes. I can't get the video.

    Angelo State is the defending national champion. They started this years World Series as the No. 8 seed.

    IUP has to beat them today and tomorrow in order to reach Saturday.

    Tall task, for sure. But, this is a pretty resiliant team.

    They have to get those bats going today.
    If IUP can win this game today, everything is even.

    Yeah, hopefully, the wind is blowing out if you drive one deep.

    They could have made a really cool logo with that name.

    That makes me laugh every time.

    Don't forget, however, when the name initially changed the senior class voted for it to become The Fighting Squirrels (as a homage to the Oak Grove). That was ultimately (thankfully) overridden.
