Well were are just past the halfway point of the NY Penn League season, so it’s time for an update on our beloved Muckdogs. The next 10 days will make our break their season, as they open a stretch of 5 games against the division leading Mahoning Valley Scrappers, 3 games against second place Williamsport Crosscutters, then head into the belly of the beast for a 3 game series against the league leading Brooklyn Cyclones in Coney Island.
Last night, in the first game of the home portion of their series with the Scrappers the ‘Dogs put two on the board in the 7th, and chewed up the MV bats to win 2-0. They have now clawed their way back to within 2 games of 1st place. We here at 20 Prospect applaud this teams’ doggedness, and seek out new canine cliche’s to describe them.
You too can follow their hunt to repeat as NY Penn league champs here: Batavia Muckdogs
Or, if you are really into it, listen online at WBTA, the radio “bark” of the Batavia Muckdogs.
Aren’t these Internets a wonderful thing? You know, I think they just might catch on.
