Lumber Company opened its 2005 season in the Joliet, IL USSSA "D" NIT on April 16th and 17th. Lumber Company started the year off facing Super Sports/Limbach Chiropractic from Kenosha, WI. The first game of the year saw the LoCo offense starting a little slow, which resulted in a loss to the Wisconsin ball club by a final score of 6-5. In game number 2 the Lumber Co. matched up with Still Young from St. Charles, IL. This game was all Lumber Co. as they cruised to an easy 9-1 victory. Game 3 had the Lumber Co. facing Stallions/Furious Lunchmeat from Bloomingdale, IL. The bats heated up in this one and much like in game 2 the LoCo rolled to an easy 12-4 victory. Our fourth and final game on Saturday was against Saturday Night Beavers from Downers Grove, IL. Lumber Company controlled the lead the entire game and came away with a 8-3 victory. Game number 5 was a bright and early 8:00am Sunday morning contest against the Yellow Jackets from Peru, IL. In this game the LoCo could not find any real offensive grove and the result was a 10-5 defeat. 3-2 was not the finish we were looking for, but 5 early season games allowed us to get in a lot of swings and knock some of the rust off as we look forward to the upcoming 2005 campaign. The entire team contributed to outstanding defense all weekend. Leading the Lumber Co. offensive over the weekend were E.Boe, .588; J.Pool, .583; M.Wallace, .562; J.Lesnik, .500; A.Blazekovich, .500 and R.Motta, .500. Lumber Company's next game will be their Joliet Park District league opener on Thursday, May 12th at 9:30pm against Heroes & Legends/All In on field #4. Our next tournament action will be that same weekend, Saturday, May 14th and Sunday, May 15th when we travel to Kankakee, IL for the NSA "D" Early Bird Tournament. *click on this article's headline to view the entire tournaments resultsimage
