JUNE 6, 2007
BILL STEWART DIAMOND - FALLON FIELD IN ROSLINDALE
Much will be written and said about the 2007 Military Invasion of Boston. A new type invasion - not guns and tanks and infantry. Baseball players came with beautiful camouflaged uni's to encounter the men from the Thomas A. Yawkey league at Fallon Field. Hundreds were in attendance as the two "new rivals" met as the Military kicked of the '07 Red White and Blue brainstorming tour.
The game was a sea-saw battle. Yawkey Stars went out to a 4-1 lead, but could not hold on when middle relievers Sean Sullivan (McKay Club) and Aiden Powers (Al Thomas Club) lost "control and the lead". It was 4-4 and 6-6 until the Military Stars sounded attack and once again came battling back. Lead off man outfielder Ronnie Stahl drove in Elton Shaw in what proved to be the winning run for the U.S. Military All-Stars (6-1) in their 8-6 victory over the Yawkey League All-Stars in Boston. Stahl was the game MVP!
I have a huge amount of game pics that will be displayed soon, but wanted to post some fun post game pics of the Military guys, YBL Stars and yours truly.
