A return game with St, Martin-in-the Fields resulted in a 13-7 win for the SMM baseball team - a vindication of their loss loss by one run in 2017.  It was overheard at the bottom of the last inning that the other team only needed 12 runs to tie - but they rallied at the end - only defeated by an amazing catch by the SMM team's youngest member, Lennon.

Then teams lined up and the game began. Tyler, who claimed not to have played for 10 years got an immediate hit and the first inning ended with a score of five to nothing.  The Roth brothers provided strong support at bat and on the field.  The rector showed his swinging prowess.  Oliver waited patiently for the junior inning for his time at bat. Spectators cheered and enjoyed the game on a perfect early summer afternoon.  Elizabeth triumphed for the second year at bat.  Thanks to Pastoral Associate Michael Perry for coordinating all the arrangments - including the distribution of Freezies.
