Imagine this baseball game:

The first batter of the game walks on four pitches. The pitcher who issued the walk is outraged by the umpire’s calls. They exchange words and the pitcher charges the plate and punches the umpire in the face, whereupon he is summarily ejected from the game.

MIDDLEBURY — The Addison County American Legion baseball season came to a disappointing end over the past few days with four losses to contending teams. Those results left AC with a 5-16 mark that is identical to that of a year ago, and in last place in the Northern Division.

Coach Mike Estey believes this summer’s team probably had more talent overall than the 2017 edition, but that the league-wide quality of competition also improved over this past summer.

MIDDLEBURY — Despite the loss of a few starters from the summer of 2017 there are good reasons to think the 2018 Addison County American Legion baseball team could take a step forward from this past season’s six wins, possibly even doubling that total and moving into contention for one of four Northern Division playoff berths.

Karl Lindholm: Many pitchers could, and can, also wield bats

Posted on May 3, 2018 |

By the way, who decreed that pitchers can’t hit?

From little League through high school, the most athletic player is often the pitcher — and the best hitter, batting cleanup.

Yet at the professional level, and even in college baseball, pitchers are relegated to specialist duty, never carrying a bat to the plate and taking their licks. Pitchers sit while a designated player hits in their turn.

In the Major Leagues, the National League is the outlier, still allowing pitchers to hit for themselves (most often ineptly).

ADDISON COUNTY — Given this spring’s wet weather maybe we should all have expected it to be the season of the Otter, and the baseball season turned out that way: The Otter Valley Union High School nine bounced back from a combined total of four wins in the past two springs to claim the Division II title.
