2016 Season closes with a Bang!!!!

The 2016 edition of the Chiefs wrapped up Saturday night in the NABF Regionals at Roselawn. What a seaseon it was this year. Without a doubt, the toughest season of finding teams to play, fields, umpires and for the first time in a while, players. Not often do we encounter having a problem finding players but it was different this summer. Kids just not wanting to play, colleges shutting kids down for no reason what so ever, selfish coaches saying they need 14 pitchers to play 27 game schedule. Craziness but alas your Chiefs carried on and marched to the beat of the drums off in the distance. They swept thru the CRC Wednesday night league again with the only hiccup being a tie with the upcoming Mudcats. Nice to see the league starting to grow again. On the non league side of it they managed a 1 game over 500 record finishing 9-8. Again just one of those odd summers. They would have pitching but no offense. They would hit but couldn't drive the runners in. Do both of the above and no pitching. Enough to make a coach go crazy and have a stroke. The team starting showing signs off life after the great Prasco Park affair. The bats were woken up with each game following that and the drive to win increased as the players starting coming together. The Chiefs won the City Tournament by beating the Mudcats in the Finals. Winning the League outright secured the Team's 17th straight NABF Regional appearance. Now the task facing the team was could they make a 3rd straight NABF World Series appearance. The 2016 NABF Cincinnati Regionals were set up as an 8 team tournament. Largest Regional in the country this year. 5 teams traveled to Cincinnati and 3 CRC teams filled out the Field. The Chiefs were awarded Host Team # 1 and assigned to Pool A while the Mudcats were awarded Host Team #2 and assigned to Pool B. Lake Erie from CLeveland, Buffalo Orvilles and the Berea Blue Sox filled up Pool A. Oswego Cats from Chicago, Portland Rockets and Yorkville filled out Pool B. The Chiefs opened up against Buffalo and saw a night of what they had seen all year. Runners on base but no timely hitting. Chappy put the Chiefs on the board with a dinger to right field as the lead was cut to 3-1. A single by Tilley and a ground out plated him as the score is now 3-2. But the Orvilles squish a lead off 2b by Mason as they strand him at Second Base. One of 7 runners left on base that night. Orvilles win 3-2. Now the Chiefs have their backs to the wall as they must win out to advance. Next up would be Berea, looking for their first win and last pool play game. Shaw takes the mound and dealing like a boss. Mind you this game started Friday night and was suspensed due to lighting. Spottz leads off the 2nd with a deep drive to left for a 1 run cushion. Colin is firing now. Top of 3rd, Farmer and Newman with back to back doubles. Flamm with an RBI single as Spottz then uses a 3 wood and golfs one deep to left field again for a 2 run bomb as the lead is extended to 5-0. Berea is no match for match as he continues to mow them down. Shaw goes 7 strong innings with 11 K's, 6 of them the famous way of " can I help you, no just looking." So win 1 is done now. next game right away vs Lake Erie. Lake Erie being 2-0 is pretty much in the Semi's but no pool champion has been declared. Change of tops, warm up Matty and here we go. Well the Buckeyes must want to go 3-0 in the pool as their talented right fielder lights up Matty for a long 3 run bomb to right. Ouch. Not to be out done, the monster 1st baseman decides he wants to take a crack and sneaks one over the RF wall. So now the Chiefs are looking down the barrell of being down 4-0. Not so fast my friends. Top of 4 and here they come. After a fly out 6 straight hits plate 5 runs as the Chiefs take a 5-4 lead. Now the fun starts as Lake Erie figures that if the score holds both teams are into the semi's. Of course Buffalo is not happy when they find that out and get a little upset. Chiefs hang on and win 5-4 and set up a 3 way tie in Pool A. Oh the next part is brutal. The famous NABF tie breaker system is now used and step #4 crowns Lake Erie Pool A Champion as they scored the most runs. Now for the runner up. Mind you Chiefs and Orvilles are 2-1, both teams gave up 7 runs but the head to head tie breaker catches the Chiefs as Orville advances as runner ups. Oh man one pitch, one pitch and the homerun in the 3rd innings dooms the Chiefs of advancement. What a tough way to win and not advance but those are the rules and thats how they are written. No crying or yelling or saying they got screwed over, they screwed ourselves by losing game 1. Plain and simple. So the Chiefs finish 2-1 and conclude another fun summer of baseball. It ws alot of fun being with this group of guys as they got closer as the season wore on. Congrats to the players on a fine season and job well done. To the young college guys best of luck to you guys and hopefully you will return for 2017. To the veterans of the squad, thank you for everything and hope to see you around Christmas time. To our loyal fans, what few we have, thank you for coming out and cheering on the Team and laughing and joking with us. Makes for alot of fun. Enjoy the rest of the summer and as always "GO CHIEFS!!!!!!"

2016 Season Begins

Your 2016 Cincinnati Chiefs began their CRC Season and the March towards Michigan by defeating The Pharohs in League action 13 - 0. Hits were a plenty and the defense looked good for the 1st trip the old ball Field. Hilliard threw 3 strong innings followed by a young Kenny Owens giving up only 3 hits in the run rule shortened game. Not a bad way to start out boys.

Next game is Wednesday night at 6:30 pm at Roselawn on Field #1. Metal spikes are allowed on this field but keep your turf cleats in your car at all times.

2015 Cincinnati NABF Regionals

On Saturday, 6 teams took to the Fields at Roselawn with the chance of wining the Regionals and earning a trip to the NABF World Series in Battle Creek Michigan starting next Wednesday. Chiefs would be looking for another Regional Crown and a return trip to Michigan. Game one see the Chiefs play the Cincy Mudcats. Not knowing much about them we trot Hilliard to the mound. Both teams exchange 1 run in the 1st as Browning leadoffs with a solo shot and then 3 runs in the 3rd inning. It would stop there as the Chiefs explode for 9 runs in the 6th inning as Hilliard goes the distance for the win with a final of 13-4.

Game 2 of the day pits us up against the Cincy Sox. Again we play an unknown team. Dan Osterbrock take the mound and proves why he is a dominate pitcher. Chiefs plate 4 runs in the 1st as Flamm hits a 3 run homer and Spottz scores on a wild pitch. The 2nd inning sees 4 more runs cross the plate as the bats are awake. The Sox are only seeing fastballs blowing by them. To the 7th as the Chiefs dent the plate 3 more times and Oste tosses a 7 hit shutout for the 11-0 win. Onto the Winner Bracket finals on Sunday at high noon. Showdown time boys.

Sunday afternoon, High Noon, the drums are beating off in the distance as the Tribe rolls into the park. Our 3rd new face team proves to be the scrapiest of them. The pirate takes the ball as the drums are beating louder. Somehow this Hogs team is not afraid of the Chiefs and they go right at us scoring in the first. Their pitcher is just slow enough to keep the bats off as pop up after pop up are hit. In the 4th, Schunk leadsoff with a single and Spottz blisters on to the fence as Schunk scores on a passed ball to tie the game at 1. Polking does his job in over powering the Hogs. Bottom of the 6th and we hear the pounding of the drums nearby calling for the rally. With 1 out, Spottz singles as Rob Shaw then delivers an absolute bomb to left center hitting the high wire tension tower up the hill for a 2 run bomb and the 3-1 lead. Polking then slams the door shut in the 7th as the Chiefs win and now sit in the finals of the Regionals.

Finals are at 6:30 Monday night. We need one win to advance to or someone has to beat us twice. So the Tribe now needs to do what we do best and play hard nose baseball and hit the ball to move on.

Chiefs Updates

Well since last report was filed, the weather has pretty been the big winner so far. As rainout after rainout was declared and travel personal problems has seen the season shortened. However thru the rain, the sun did allow us to play some games.

The Chiefs hosted Battle Creek Behnke in a weekend series in July at Lakota West. Game 1 saw the Creek boys take a 2-0 lead and hang on for the win. Game 2 saw both teams trade punches and runs but again Battle Creek came away with a 5-2 win and the sweep. A few more bodies and the outcome may have been different.

Chiefs hosted the Miami Valley Wolverines College team twice and walked away with 2 one run wins. Both teams were very evenly matched and played 9 inning in under 2 1/2 hours.

Chiefs lost a tough fought game at Praso against the College Spikes. Colin was dominate on the mound but a late inning homer proved to be the differnce in this one as the Chiefs lost 5-4.

Chiefs continue their dominace over the Yorkville club with a league win and a non league win but each time out Yorkville got better.

The Chiefs swept thru the Wednesday night league unbeaten to earn the NABF Regional Bid for 2015. A perfect 7-0 as no game was ever closer then 5 runs.


Tuesday, July 14

With the soggy month of June past us, things had to be drier for July. However Mother Nature has decided to stay involved in the season so far. With more rainouts then games played so far, this season has been the biggest rally killer the Team has ever seen. After a beautiful Saturday in which the Chiefs welcomed Battle Creek Behnke from Michigan to town, the rain showed up again. The Behnke team sweep the Chiefs in two very good games, scores of 2-0 & 5-3 showed that the teams were matched well. Both teams brought out the hammers on the mound as strikeouts and ground ball were plentiful.

Chiefs are back in action Wednesday night at Roselawn at 8:45 against Yorkville and then on Thursday at Lakota West at 6:30 against the Meridians.  Come on out and enjoy some sunshine and baseball.

Opening Day is Around the Corner

The 2015 Cincinnati Chiefs Season is finally arriving. New faces will join a large returning core of players. The schedule is like always, long and tough. So set back and get ready to enjoy another fun season with the Boys of Summer in Green and Orange.

Monday, August 11

the 2014 NABF Regionals were held ove the weekend at Roselawn Fields. 4 teams battling for the right to go the World Series in Battle Creek Michigan, only one team survives.

Saturday the Chiefs started off against the Meridians, who pinned an end of the regular season loss on the squad. Looking to avenge that loss, Hillard would be the man. Mike works out of an early jamb as the offense finds the plate in the 1st inning. Mike gives us 3 1/3 innings of work before the bullpen takes over. Up 4-0, the defense has a mind freeze and coughs the ball up and allows 3 runs to cross the plate. The guys quickly go out and get 1 run back in the bottom of the inning and then explode for 7 runs in the 6th to go up 12-3. Werner finishes the game with 3 solid innings as Hillard gets the win and the Chiefs advance to 4:30 with a 12-3 victory.

Game 2 of the day sees us battle Yorkville. Young Mike Cook takes his turn and hit up for 2 quick runs as the defense is sluggish again. In the 3rd inning, Yorkville adds another run for a 3-0 lead. There soft pitcher is confusing the Chiefs batters until the 5th as 2 singles and a DK 3b and O'Neal SAC fly tie the game up. In the 6rh, Yorkville finds the lead again 4-3 as Cook gives way to Kroell. Bottom of the 8th sees the drama building as Yorkville is looking for the win but Farmer leads off with a single and Spottz hits a blasts to left for a 2 run homer and the 5-3 lead. Farmer is summoned to the mound and is pumping. A walk and a single set up the dramatics again as a game ending double play is used. Chiefs advance to the Finals with a 5-3 win.

Finals on Sunday is set. Earlier Yorkville had eliminated the Meridians. Now they must beat us twice to move on. Chiefs hand the ball to Chapman and put the weight on his shoulders. Chapman goes 7 1/3 innings of shut out baseball for the Chiefs.  Offense finds the plate in the 3rd inning as O'Neal singles and Flamm hammers one to Left for a 2 run tater. Up 2-0, the Chiefs would strike again in the 7th inning as Addington hits a 2 run single to put the Chiefs up 4-0. Bullpen comes on and locks down the shut out and the win as the Cheifs win 4-0 and claim another NABF  Regional Championship. The trip to Battle Creek will be the 3rd one in the last 5 years for the team. Most by any recent CRC team.

The Chiefs will open up pool play on Thursday morning at 11:00 am against the Brunswick Orioles and then return to action that evening on the main stadium to play the host team Battle Creek Behnke. On Friday they paly at 2:00 pm against the defending World Series Champions of 2013, Pittsburgh St. John's. Hands down the toughest pool but the guys will do all they can to step up to the challenge and play to move onto Saturday morning. Congrats to the all the players for this season and thanks to the fans for your support. The best is yet to come and hope to see you all in Battle Creek Thursday morning. Go Chiefs!!!!!!!!!!

Tuesday, August 5
City Champions Again!!!!

City make a loud bang as they return to the top of the podium as your 2014 CRC City Tournament Champions once again. 

Game 1 of the Finals sees the Chiefs and CoBalts locking horns once again in a Title Game. CoBalts looking to knock the Chiefs off, will have to win both games tonight. They waste no time in making their intentions known as they trot Dizzy Peyton out to the hill. Chiefs couonter with Farmer and folks it's on. A leadoff walk, a SAC bunt and an error lead to runners on 1st & 3rd but a double play end sthe threat. Chiefs try to take advantage of the CoBalts error but leave the man at 2nd base. 2nd inning sees the CoBalts get the free pass. A stolen base and a ghost man pickoff attempt at 2nd puts the runner to 3rd as he is scored on a duck snort to right. Chiefs dig in to battle as the CoBalts pitcher is gassin the ball and gets a few questionable strikes in his favor. Farmer continues the chess match as he never allows another runner past second base the rest of the game. Chiefs best chance at scoring is in the 6th as Browning leadoffs with a single, movers to 2nd on Werner's SAC bunt. Kennett moves him to 3rd on a groundout but an infield pop up kills the rally as the CoBalts get the win 1-0. So that lose for the Chiefs forces game 2 right away.

CoBalts trot Dizzy right back out as the Chiefs counter with Zach Hile. Title on the line and looking for a big win, Hile waste no time in putting the CoBalts down in order. Chiefs use a different approach on Dizzy and the CoBalts and put up 5 runs in the first inning. 10 batters come to the plate and lay wood to the ball. CoBalts remain quite on offense as the Chiefs just keep swinging the lumber. Dizzy finally exits in the 3rd inning with one out and 6 runs on the board as the Chiefs are in the zone. Hile gives up 3 hits in 6 innings of work as Kroell throws the 7th for a shut out. Chiefs add oe more in the 4th to go up 7-0 and go on to win 7-0 and claim the 2014 CRC City Championship again. Great tournament run by the guys. Outstanding pitching by all the starters and timely smart hitting by the offense. Pitchers give up 3 runs in 4 games, 2 were earned with 3 complete games.

Now the focus is turned to the NABF Regionals in Cincinnati starting this week as the Chiefs look for their 3rd NABF Regional Title in 5 years. Winner takes the trophy and earns the right to go to Battle Creek Michigan and play against 11 other teams from across the midwest and east coast. Should be another fun week of baseball for the guys.

Game times to be announced tonight so check back.

LET'S GO!!!!!!!!

Young Gun Dazzles Today

Today in the City Tournament, the Chiefs went 360 degrees the other way in terms of the age of the pitchers. Yesterday it was veteran Sanders day. Today it was young and I mean young righties day as Michael Cook, a senior to be at Milford took the ball and threw one of the best games in recent memory for the Chiefs. Asking a young man to go thru that competition is a big risk and he chose not to disappoint. A complete game effort, 1 run, 3 hits, 1 K and 1BB was his line. He got the backing of stellar defense today as the infield turns two DP's and the stingy fast outfield was catching anything hit towards them.  His blemish came in the 3rd inning as a leadoff double, a SAC bunt and ground out let Yorkville score the 1st and only run of the their day. After the double, he set down the next 14 out of 15 batters that he faced allowing only one hit. Impressive my friends, Impressive!!! TC leads off the bottom of the 4th we a knock to center as the fielder misplays it and TC winds up at 3rd. Werner's groundout scores TC as the Chiefs tie the game. Bottom of the 5th sees Rex leadoff and on a 3-1 count, drills a pitch to LC and smashes the scoreboard to put the Chiefs up 2-1 as we go on to win 2-1. Yorkville pitcher was just as impressive allowing no walks on the day.

Chiefs now move to Championship Monday as we await the winner of Yorkville/CoBalts being played. Game time is 6:30 at Roselawn #1. Black tops and grey pants are the order of colors and all hands on deck as the Chiefs look for another City Championship. Let's Go!!!

Sunday, August 3
Round 1 of the City

Chiefs open the City Tournament against the Bombers. Both teams looking to make a statement as the trot the best pitchers they have to the mound. Chiefs give the veteran Sanders the ball as he looks to redeem his name after his last outing for the Chiefs. A free pass and a pickoff, fly ball, a single, another free pass and a K end the First inning for the Bombers. Chiefs turn as Shaw is being the heat but a patient approach and a super tight strike zone put the first two batters on. A ground out and Spottz singles in two to put the Chiefs 2-0. Sanders continue to work out of umpire forced jambs but never gets frustrated just keeps pitching. Chiefs plate another run in the 4th on Shaw as Silver Fox gets nipped. Then a walk and an error scores the Fox. Farmer leads off the 5th with a moon shot to left to put the Chiefs up 4-0 as Shaw's day is complete. Chiefs will add 2 more runs in the bottom of the 6th to give Sanders plenty of cushion. Top of the 7th sees the guys have a major brain fart as 3 errors on routine balls leads to the Bombers scoring their first run but Sanders never bats an eye and gets a fly out to close the deal as the Chiefs win 6-1 and move on.

Next up will be a revamped Yorkville squad today at 1:00 on Roselawn 1. Wear white pants and green tops and let's go.

Sunday, August 3
Regular Season ends Ugly

After the Chiefs traveled to Lakota West on Wednesday night to take another rainout, the guys return on Thursday night to play the Meridians in the final regular season game. Both teams are sporting giant numbers for the contest, barely enough to play. Yikes but the show must go on. Hillard takes the mound and is having Christmas in July thoughts as he spots the Meridians 5 runs in the 1st on 1 hit. That makes for a tough way to begin a game. They add another in the 3rd to go up 6-0. Chiefs dent the plate in the 4th finally. Meridians promptly get the run back to stay up 7-1.  Bottom of the 6th sees the guys try to mount the comeback as they plate 2 runs and then with 2 outs in the 7th another charge is mounted as the game ends with a final of 7-5. Tough way to end the regular season but with the offense missing some big bats we do what we can.

Now the City Tournament awaits as the Chiefs are awarded the Number Seed in it and are crowned the 2014 Regular Season Champs on Tuesday Night and secure the NABF bid for the Regionals. Game time for Saturday will be 4:30 vs the winner of the Bombers/Meridians game. Wear grey and black and lets go.

CRC Final League Game of 2014

Tuesday night brought the last make up game of the year to Roselawn. Chiefs play the Dayton Dodgers in the nightcap. Looking to close out League play on a high note and secure another League Championship, the guys will need to play their best. Chiefs start out of the gate hot as Addy hits a leadoff single followed by a Cotton walk, TC sac bunt. Spotzz singles in the first run and Flamm hits a SAC fly for the second as the Chiefs are up 2-0. Young gun Thurnauer is on the hill as he yeilds a walk with no damage. Chiefs then decide to squander and piss away scoring chances over the next 4 innings as only 2 runs are scored behind very bad and selfish at bats. Thurnauer leaves after 4 innings of no hit baseball as Nate takes over. Chiefs plate 3 runs in the 6th inning as the Dodgers some how prove that you can drop routine fly ball. WOW. Nate surrenders the 1st hit of the night as the no-no goes away but no damage is done. Three more runs are plated by the Guys in the 7th to go up 10-0 and cruise to a cheap ugly win. Thurnauer records his 1st win as a high school Chief and the Chiefs finish the regular season in 1st ahead of the Bombers by a mere .002% points in the standings. But according to the League officals, the 2 teams are tied. Thats a new one on me but the way this League has gone this year, nothing surprised me at this point. Call it however you want.

Next up the Guys will be the Miami Valley Wolverines at Lakota West on Wednesday night at 6:30. White pants and green tops for this one.

Chiefs Rebound

WEdnesday night sees the Chiefs return to action at Lakota West against the Queen City Legends. Riding a three game losing streak to the Legends, Chiefs are looking to move to the win column. Tonight seems right as the Legends have suffered end of the year depature of players as the "no baseball should be played towards the end of July" mentalitity of the their officals have hurt them. Chiefs sport a semi full dugout but still have key players missing. If the day every comes where the same starting 9 guys play 2 or 3 consectutive games, lord knows what might happen. So a different patchwork of players is sent out. Hillard takes the rubber and just struggles with his command. Legends score 2 runs behind 1 hit, a SAC fly and 4 free gifts. Chiefs answer and regain those 2 runs as Spottz singles, Flamm doubles and Farmer drives one to the gap. However the Legends again are given the gift of the walk and then a 3b to the gap to gain the 2 runs back. DK takes over with 1 out and throws 2 pitches for 2 outs. Chiefs don't find the plate again until the 4th as 2 runs are scored to tie the game behind a Farmer singles, Addy walks and Gibbons and Colburn hit back to back singles to drive them in. 5th inning sees the Chiefs wake up the bats as the first 5 batters of the inning single and a walk to score 3 runs. DK is lights out on the mound going 5 2/3 in relief for the win as the Legends never threaten again. Chiefs go on for a 7-4 win on the night as they pound out 15 hits.

Up next for the squad will be a DH on Sunday at Lakota West against the hard hitting talented Portland Rockets. First pitch is set for 1:00. Wear white pants and green tops.

Wednesday, July 23
CRC Splitsville

Last night the Chiefs hooked it up with the Bombers. Lots of goodies on the line in this one. Brennan on the mound for the Chiefs, Bombers trot out a fireballer. Game starts out like its gonna be a pitchers duel but the umpire quickly decides that all the fans in the stadium have come to watch him call balls and strikes. Bombers are spotted 2 runs in the first thanks to the 3rd strike not being called twice. Chiefs push 1 run across in the 2nd as Gibbons walks and Colburn 2b's down the line. Mr. Umpire enters the game again as batters are giving an extra pitch instead of being rung up and the result is a big blow as 4 runs cross the plate. Thats all the Bombers pitcher needed to cruise thru 6 innings. Both teams pitchers and hitters battled the circus strike zone all night. What was a strike in the 3rd inning was a ball in the 4th and a strike again in the 6th. No excuse for umpiring like that but it is what it is. Chiefs take the loss 6-1 and move on.

The Roughriders are up next as Lefty takes the hill. The struggles for the offense continues as guys are having terrible at bats. The fly out is killing things until the 5th as Flamm walks, Cotton gets plunked and Farmer awakens from a drought and rips a 2 run Double to left center. Chappy keeps the shut out going. 6th inning sees some more offense as Tilley gets hit, Addington to run and steals second, Kennett reaches on an error and Spottz goes deep for a 3 run blast. DK takes over in the 7th and is lights out as the Chiefs win 5-0.

Next up will be the Queen City Legends tomorrow at Lakota West High School at 6:00 weather permitting.

Beautiful Complex, Ugly Showing

On Saturday, the young Chiefs showed up to Prasco Park in Mason to take on the Spikes. Seeing a youthful team and an awesome field, pitchers in tow, things looked right for the Chiefs. Well thats about as far as it went for the boys in green. Game 1 sees the Chiefs look bad at the plate. Umpire squeezes the daylights out of Erik on the mound and next thing we know the Spikes are up 6-0. Chiefs finally find the plate in the 7th to make it 7-1.

Enter Game 2. Chiefs score 2 runs right away. Maybe the bats have woken up. Not so fast my friend. Spikes get the 2 runs right back behind some sloopy defense. 5th inning sees the Spikes blow the game open as they score 6 runs on 2 hits. Holy cow as harry Carey wouold say, Holy cow. So the day ends as the Chiefs take two loses at the hands of the Spikes. An ugly day at the field is an under statement for this group today. So we pack up and look at Tuesday night as the guys return to CRC action. First pitch is 6:30 at Roselawn against the Bombers followed by the 8:45 against the Roughriders. The NABF bid is on the line Tuesday night as is the League Title. Gotta be better guys.

Wednesday, July 16
Chiefs earn a Tie

After a cancellation on Sunday due to lack of players on both teams, guess guys have better things to do then play a ball game, the Chiefs return to CRC action. Tonights opponent is Yorkville. Farmer takes the mound and has his good stuff but looks out to see a depeleted outfield as again guys have better things to do then come to the park. Hell the RF is 39 years old tonight. Oh man. Chiefs score in the 3rd as Addington 1b and moves to 2nd and scores on a DK 1b. Yorkville scores right away in the bottom of the inning. Chiefs score 3 in the 4th as Champman 1b, Gibbons 1b, Colburn hits a 3b, Reeder singles and Yorkville scores 3 runs. Fun fun. In the 5th Chiefs score as DK singles and Farmer drives him in. Yorkville answers and scores. 6th inning sees Yorkville go up 2 runs. Enter the 7th inning. Seaman singles to leadoff, Addington walks, DK walks, Flamm gets plunked. Down 1 run now. Addington steals home on the catcher throwing back to the pitcher. Next pitch DK takes off for third as the throw sails into LF as Flamm hustles from 1st base to score also. So now the Chiefs laead 9-7. Guess what? Yorkville scores 2 runs to tie the game as it ends 9-9. WOW!!!


Up next will be the Midwest Prospects on Wednesday at 6:30 at Lakota West. Wear white pants and black tops. Hopefully some missing faces return for this game.

Thursday, July 10
Interesting Night

Chiefs roll into Lakota West to face the Queen City Legend from the League we aren't allowed to play in. Things start off on the wrong foot as the field is locked, grass unmowed, dirt not drug and grass all over the mound and plate. Non the less we play. Hunke toes the rubber and cruises thru 3 innings but the wheels fell off giving up 2 runs on 5 hits. Nate takes over but fairs no better giving up 2 runs on 2 hits in an inning and a third. Colburn gives up 2 runs in one inning of work on 3 hits and sloppy defense play. Chiefs score 1 in the 1st as Cotton 2b and scores on a PB. 1 in the 3rd as Cotton walks, Werner 1b, and Addington hits a SAC fly. 1 run in the 5th as Cotton walks and scores on an Addington 2b. In the 6th the Chiefs are charging with the bases loaded as the sprinkler system kicks on ends the game. Unreal but fitting for the field tonight. So the Chiefs take a loss and move on.

Next game is Sunday at 4:00 at Lakota West against the Bombers.

Spottz singles home Browning as the Chiefs win 3-1 move to 6-0 in the League.

Next up for the boys is the Queen City Legend as Lakota West tomorrow night at 6:30.

Big Sticks are Used

Chiefs return to the ball field after a beautiful weekend of not playing baseball. Thanks for the invite Mike Bricker and Jeff Fruitwurth. Tonights opponent is the Queen City River Bandits. The sun is out for once and their dugout is not looking good. Finally they have 9 guys arrive and here we go. Chiefs struggle in the first as the pitcher is changing speeds between slow and slower. Lots of pop ups. Farmer is chuckin fastballs that they never saw. Fast Foward to the 5th, Chiefs are up 16-0 as Farmer throws a 1 hitter on the night. Everybody hits, everybody scores and everybody plays. Feels good when that happens.

Next game is tomorrow night as we have the twilght DH. 6:30 against the Roughriders followed by the CoBalts at 8:45. Wear White pants and White Tops.

Thursday night we return to the friendly confines of Lakota West High School at 6:30 against the Queen City Legends and Sunday at 4:00 pm. Weather looks good for once to get some games in.

Chiefs Win with a Walkoff

After another trip to Roselawn to take a rainout and a rain delay tonight, the Chiefs finally got to play a game. Tonight we would take on the Bombers. Looking to gain ground in the CRC and avenge a bad loss early to them, the guys came out swinging. Hillard works out of a self created jam in the 1st as the Chiefs put 2 runs up in the bottom half behind Flamms single and Farmers thrown out at 3rd double. Nothing in the 2nd. Bombers get 2 in the 3rd to tie but the Chiefs answer back with 2 of their own as Addington scores on a throwing error and Werner singles in Browning. Hunke gives up 1 in the 4th behind a throwing error at the plate as the scores moves to 4-3.  Nobody Bombers find the plate in the 5th as the Chiefs add 2 more runs. Kroell enters the 6th and the dramatics begin as the Bombers score 4 unanswered runs. Chiefs down 7-6. Farmer singles to leadoff, Tilley walks, Seaman walks. Addington hits an FC to tie the game. Two pitches later Addington takes off for 2nd and the throw hits CF as Tilley scores and the Chiefs win 8-7.

Afterwards we are approached by the CRC folks asking us to stay and play another game against the team on the other since they won by forfit. Well 15 minutes later, we pay umpires to play and then the other team says they can't play. Geez. So no game and we have the weekend off of the 4th of July since the two baseball kings that run the other local league didn't feel the need to invite us to their 4th of July Tourney cause we have some older guys that play for us and college kids don't gain nothing playing them. Ok wise man, thats a real good excuse for keeping teams out.

Next game is Tuesday night at 8:45 at Roselawn 2 against the team that didn't want to play tonight. Green and white.

Chiefs split the Weekend

On Saturday, the Chiefs traveled up to Springfield to play the College Miami Valley Wolverines. Leaving the meat of the line up in different parts of the United States, the challenge would be fun. Game 1 sends Hunke to the hill. Chiefs start out and get 2 runners in scoring position against the hard throwing Wolverine pitcher but walk away empty. Hunke sits them down in order. Again nothing for the Cheifs in the 2nd, same for the Wolverines. 3rd inning we hit pay dirt as the bases are loaded as Farmer drills a shot to LC for 2 runs. Leadoff man reaches and gets pickled off first, then an error and a HBP and a single gives the Wolverines their 1 st run of the game. Zeros are exchanged in the 4th. Nothing in the 5th as Hunke gives way to 2 arm Nate. A defense hiccup ties the game at 2. Wolverines bullpen is summoned and the free passed are issued as Colburn hits the big blow 2b as we score 3 runs. Nate puts up a zero. Top of 7th gives the Chiefs 2 more runs as Gibby drives in 2 to push the lead to 7-2. A leadoff single followed by a smooth DP and a groundout finishes the game as the Chiefs win.

Game 2 quickly follows as the Wolverines score right away and go up 1-0. Chiefs score 2 in the 2nd as Chapman and Browning record RBI singles. Wolverines score 1 in the bottom of 3rd to tie the game at 2. Chiefs plate 4 runs in the 4th as Colburn SAC fly brings in 1, Kennet big 2b plates 2 followed by Farmers RBI single as Chiefs go up 6-2. Hillard takes over and gives up a run, 6-3 now. Then the walk bug and error bug bites as the Chiefs give up 5 runs in the last 3 frames to lose 8-6. Still a good day on the diamond as lots of AB's were taken and the pitchers logged in more innings. Hopefully the vacation and other things to do by guys is coming to an end so the Team can start playing at full strength every time out.

Up next is a Twilight DH on Tuesday at Roselawn 2, starting at 6:30. Wear white pants and bring the green tops just in case. Lets go get 2 wins fellas!!

Chiefs go Hard and Fast

Tuesday night saw the annual renewal of Chiefs vs Yorkville. As in years past, these games never disappoint. With a nice crowd seated around Don Johnson Field at Roselawn, your Chiefs looked to bounce back after Saturday. Hillard takes the bump and gets out of a bases loaded jamb. Browning starts the game with a screaming 3b to left center followed by a Cotton laser to third, a run down with a throwing error to left and we lead 1-0. Yorkville gets a runner to second but Hillard gets a ground ball to end it. Newbie Hunke deals a 0 in the 3rd as the Chiefs use a Browning leadoff error and a sac fly from Flamm to plate run #2. Another zero in the 4th for Hunke. Enter the top of the 5th. Inning starts with the entire complex going dark. 25 minutes later we have lights again as Boone is on. After 2 walks, newly aquired Colburn comes in. An error, a dink and a seeing eye barely fair 2b to right allows Yorkville to plate 4 runs.  Ok, answer the bell. Seaman, walks, Browning walks, Cotton unloads on one to rc for a 2 rbi triple. Farmer nearly kills the pitcher as Cotton scores and the Chiefs lead 5-4. Colburn holds the lead in the 6th as Farmer comes on and slams the door in the 7th as the Chiefs win 5-4. Nice job tonight gentlemen. Good win.

Up next is a double dip in Springfield at the Annex Field at Carleton Davidson Stadium by Wittenberg Univ. First pitch at 1:00. Wear white pants and green tops and lets roll up a pair.

Chiefs take it on the chin

The Chiefs rolled into Testermann Park on Saturday for a game with the Cincinnati Bombers. The numbers were not super high in terms of players but the squad was talented. However one big thing was not packed for the guys in green, strikes. Chiefs pitching staff gives up 13 free passes along with 11 hits, which makes for a long day at the park. The 4th inning does us in for the day as 17 Bombers see the dish. Ouch!!! BRight spot as we did score 2 runs of the hard throwing righty of the Bombers as Farmer drills a pitch to right for a 2b, Seeman takes a walk and Tilley nails a shot to center for a 2b. One in the 5th as Browning leads of with a 2b and Addington 1b him home. But it is early and we will keep swinging and pitching and fixing what has to be fixed.

Next up is Tuesday night at Roselawn at 8:45 against Yorkville. Wear White and White.

Cincinnati Amauter Baseball Lost a Great One

As we all sit and stare out the windows of our homes or places of work, we see lots of ice and piles of snow all around us. And we wonder if it will ever warm up and allow us to take the field to play the game that so many of us deeply love. As the day comes to an end, many baseball players throughout the Tri-State Area and all over have started to hear the sad news about one of the greatest Ambassadors and all around respected guys of the game. Today we have lost the greatest One Eyed Umpire in the game, Max McCleary. Max has now been assigned to umpire the biggest game of all, the one that has no time limit, no run rule and always welcomes everyone in. It is truely as sad day to the many and many players, coaches, fellow umpires and people that Max touched each and every day, whether it was on the field or just in passing. All he ever talked about was baseball, baseball and more baseball. Max, you were one of the truely great ones and you will be forever remember and deeply missed.

The Cincinnati Cheifs would like to extend their deepest condolences to the McCleary family in this heart breaking moment of loss. We had the great honor of Having Max do many of our summer games through the years and Jeff & Jerry had the honor of Max doing a High School Tournament game. We were humbled that Max always went out of his way to talk with us and very proud that he called us his friend. We will never be able to give to the game what Max gave and for that, we will always be in debted to him.

 Thank you Max for all that you did for everyone and may you keep a watchful eye over everyone now from the your perch high in the heavens. God bless you and may you Rest In Peace my friend.
