The Rossiter Miners are 2017 Federation League World Champions!!!
They defeated the Brookville Grays, 8-4. Great season Grays!
Here's how it went down, The Miners scored 3 runs in the first inning off a Dakotah Byers and it made the Grays feel like sellers. Brookville fought back as Tanner Klein hit a very high home run that knocked over a Rossiterites spitter. Them's fightin' actions!! Brookville continued the insults after Plummer laid more pipe with double and scored off a Jarren Ross single.
In the 6th inning, Rossiter put 5 on the board to win the game. Singles by Dylan Conrad, Pete Meterko and Kyle Neal. Then lots of ugly baseball ensued. Jordan Mesoraco walked, Ty Zimmerman was smacked by a pitch and later scored on a wild one. Max Saxman singled and drove in 2. Miners win, 8-4!!
Immediately following, grown men jumped on each other while Queen played in the background. Local Rossiterites provided celebratory turkey calls and caused some to go into rut. We'll have to check back in 9 months to see if this caused baby boom.
Saxman threw a complete game to earn the win. Kane McCall also threw a complete game for the Grays and got to take home a loss that was immediately thrown in the trash on the way to the parking lot.
Congratulations to both teams on a great season and series!!!
Below, the Miner are apparently angry with Pete Meterko as a teammate hip-tosses the all-star shortstop.
