And “The Spaceman” and El Tiante played a little golf…..
Bill Lee and Luis Tiant
While this collection of very special young men played for the state of Florida 7A baseball state championship!
After falling behind 3-0 in the top of the first inning yesterday, the Venice Indians rallied behind the bats of Grant Banko and Kevin Guthrie, to take a 4-3 lead after two. They held on for a 4-3 win behind the pitching of junior Cooper Hammond (10-1) and some outstanding clutch defense led by sophomore catcher Mike Rivera and sophomore shortstop Dalton Guthrie.
Their quest…..To be the greatest team on the greatest day…..Today is the greatest day!
And it begins at 4 PM.
And so it is on this day in Fenway Park history, the greatest day.
