CMU Fall World Series Game 5

Team Maroon vs. Team Gold

fall1Theunissen Stadium-Mount Pleasant, MI: We’ve had so much rain here in Michigan this past month, we were very lucky that we caught a break last weekend, and actually enjoyed some fall baseball. The Central Michigan University Chippewas play a split-squad Fall World Series, and we were able to see game five. It was a beautiful day, and with the sun shining down, it seemed a lot warmer than the 65 degree temperature. We usually go to football games this time of year, but the Chips were out of town, and I prefer baseball, anyway.

Good choice for us, as Gold put three runs across in the first inning. Maroon pitcher Adam Aldred gave up four runs and struck out five in four plus innings. On the other side, Gordon Grasjean was great on the hill, and no-hit the Maroon squad through five innings. He ended up giving up one run on four hits, and struck out two batters in his seven innings of work. Offensively, Adam Collins led the way for the Gold, with two hits and two RBI’s, and Tyler Huntley also added an RBI. For Team Maroon, Logan Regnier’s triple in the seventh accounted for his teams lone run.

I’m not looking forward to winter at all, and April can’t come soon enough! Final: Team Gold 6, Team Maroon 1.

Theunissen Stadium-Central Michigan Baseball

Even in the off-season, the kids and I will always try to find an excuse to go a ballpark, even if it’s closed! We took advantage of this awesome Michigan fall day to catch one last college football game of the year, as Central Michigan hosted Miami. After the game, though, we went over to Theunissen Stadium just to check things out and see if there were any stray baseballs hanging around left over from the Maroon/Gold World Series. We were shut-out in that respect, but we had a great time and CMU got the victory 30-16. Brian was actually a little upset that we were going to a football game instead of a baseball game, but enjoyed running around the ballpark, and really like the football game’s half-time show. Lily really liked the band, too, and Trevor being a football player enjoyed the game itself. Lucky their Papa has season tickets, so no problem when we want to see a game. A fun day over-all, and got some good pics to show off, and some of the baseball stadium I haven’t taken before.

2012 Baseball Trip-Game 9: Fire up Chips!!!

Central Michigan Chippewas vs. Western Michigan Broncos

Theunissen Stadium-Mt. Pleasant, MI: Ahh…back in our home state!!! It was a long drive back, and we were dog tired, but not tired enough to miss a baseball game. On our way back home, we stopped in at my dads’ alma mater, Central Michigan, to see them take on their arch-rivals, the Western Michigan Broncos. We’ve only been to a hand-full of college ballparks, but Central’s Theunissen Stadium is the best one we’ve been at, and probably one of the nicer college stadiums in Michigan. This was CMU‘s final regular season game, so plenty of students and family in attendance to cheer on the home team. Before the game, some of the former baseball alumni and coaches were honored, including Coach Theunissen, who the stadium was named after.  He threw out the first pitch to his grandson Nate Theunissen, who is now the Chippewas all-time hits leader. The game itself was a good one, with the Chips edging the Broncos 3-2. It was a hot day that drained us a bit, but the game went by pretty quick. I was excited, though, because I was about to be reunited with three most important people in my life… Final: CMU 3, WMU 2.

This is a very simple game...

You throw the ball. You catch the ball. You hit the ball...Of course, baseball fans know that this line from Bull Durham is far from true, part of the humor of the movie and a huge part of the fun of the game. This blog is a space to talk about baseball, being a baseball fan, all of those things that make the game fun and the Angels, because they make baseball fun for me.
