LIKE LIKE THE FATHER OF PLAY-BY PLAY RADIO DID BACK IN THE 1920S, IRA LIEBMAN OF THE SUGAR LAND SKEETERS BROADCAST THE BABIES-COMBINE GAME FROM FIELD LEVEL.

The Katy Combine played beautifully at Constellation Field yesterday, June 12, 2015, earning every sweet sip of bubble wine they took from the victory cup of having again bested, busted and otherwise pushed aside the Houston Babies, 7-2. The Babies fought the good fight, but they couldn’t resist hitting too many high floating one-bounce outs – and they suffered an excess number of foul tip one-bounce grabs by the Combine catcher for easy retirements at the plate to have much hope for a win of their own.

The game was played in splendid good sportsmanship between the two stalwart and strongly committed 1860s vintage base ball clubs of the Greater Houston area – and the hope lives on that we shall continue to recruit others to a level of participatory appreciation for the soaring impact our hobby-game has upon the sandlot spirit that never died within any of us from earlly childhood to now – and from ere to eternity.

We remain dedicated to the plan of developing two more teams. With four teams, we will bring spring and autumn round robin schedule league play to Greater Houston Vintage Base Ball and be able to play our way into a championship game, perhaps at Constellation Field, between the two clubs that finish the year’s schedule with the best records.

That being said, here’s an often up-close-and-loaded-with character pictorial of the Houston Babies personnel who were able to participate in yesterday’s game. And these shots include pictures of our on-the-DL shortstop, Jimmy Disch, and the loyal daughter and courtesy runner for her father, Meghan McCroskey – without whom, her dear and often brash, but good natured father, Michael “Piano Legs” McCroskey, would never so much as get to first base – let alone get the double that later converted to only the Babies second run of the day when his surrogate runner daughter came in to score on his behalf.

The Pecan Park Eagle hopes you enjoy your individual, collective, and residually ambient visit with the 2015 Houston Babies in imagery!
