A Couple of Feathers for our Headbands
This first letter I received on Thursday from one of the Umpires during the BB18+ Tournament.

Mr. Reeder,

Thank you for your participation in the first BB18+ Championship Tournament and congratulations on your finishing spot. On a personal note, as an umpire at the Tournament, I would like to say that I enjoyed working with your team. They are a nice group of players and a great Team! Good luck to you next season and we look forward to your participation in next year's event.

Marc Landals
Roy Hobbs Baseball.

This second letter came to me today via e-mail and is for the whole season.

August 25, 2006

To the Chiefs:
I just wanted to thank the team for a successful season. I also want to thank Jeff and Jerry for their hard work. The work Jerry did on the website and the recruiting he did was outstanding and well beyond expectations. He also brings an intensity to the game that I remember having 30 years ago, but lost somewhere along the way. As for Jeff, I've had the pleasure of working with him for several years now, and I have learned more about baseball from him than I have from all my coaches throughout my life put together. I hope you players have taken the time to tap into his knowledge. If you haven’t spent time talking to him about how to improve your game, you have missed out on a wealth of knowledge he is more than willing to share.
I want to share a little advice to the players that may seem trivial and even a little ridiculous now, but when you look back on your baseball life, whenever it comes to an end, you will know what I was talking about. Play the game for as long as you can as long as you still enjoy it. Do whatever it takes. Dump your girlfriend if she doesn’t share the same passion for the game as you do. Change jobs if it interferes with baseball. Keep playing until it is no longer fun. No matter how good you think you are you can always work a little harder to improve. Spend more time in the weight room, even during the season. Don’t let yourself get out-of-shape. Cut out the partying the night before the game. Get more sleep and watch what you eat. Watch your teammates’ backs, and stand up for them. OK, that’s enough advice.
I hope the core of this team can stay together. This team was much improved over the 2005 version, and should get even better the longer you stay together. I’m not sure about what I am going to do next season, but I will continue to follow the team. I also have to see what kind of father Old School becomes. I sure hope the kid looks like its mother.
All the Best,
The Boot
I hope you guys realize what we have done here the last two years. We have returned the Chiefs name to where it once was and where it should be. Yes we had some bumps along the way this year but that happens when you are starting over from scratch. We have something special that we are building and it will only get better.
These are only two accolades that I have posted about the lasting impression we are making on people. 99% of the people we run across have only had good things to say about you guys as players and as young men. The way you play the game and respect it, is a great way to be remembered. Remember this, it is easy for someone to criticize you when they have not walked in your shoes.

Thursday, August 24
End of Season
The Chiefs have brought the 2006 season to a close on a winning note. The team got in 38 games this year, which is not bad considering all the rainouts that we had. With a final record record of 25-12-1, I would say we had a successful season for our 2nd official year back in Cincinnati.

The Chiefs would like to say thank you to all of our sponsors this year, without your donations our season would not have been possible. Thanks to all the fans who traveled with us this summer and sat through some hot afternoons and some long nights. The young men may not realize it yet, but having their parents there to watch them play is a big deal. I remember when my own dad could no longer travel to my games due to his failing health, it is tough. Thanks to the players for playing this summer. There were 36 different guys to pull on the green and white Chiefs uniforms this year. Without you guys none of this happens. You guys played your wheels this summer and showed that we can play with the big boys, not only in Cincinnati but in the State of Ohio as well. Thanks to Coach Jeff for his time that he gave to the program. Many people may not know what all goes on beyond the field but it is more than just showing up and standing down at third base giving signs to players. Thanks to Mr.Scheffel for giving up his time to help us out this summer. Many think that all he did was keep score but he was the quite Coach that helped us along when we needed it. And last but not least, I want to say thanks to my wife, who made it to almost every game this year whether I played or not. She put up with all the work that goes into a program like this and even though she said she is glad it is over, she will miss the trips to Roselawn and seeing everyone. She was one of the biggest fans that we had this summer. As many of you know, we are expecting our first child in December, so next summer I will have a new little Chief in tow with me. That will be fun.

As far as the season goes. We started out slow in the Memorial Day Tourney, but we were just starting to play.  Most of the month of June and first of July we were rained out. Thursday nights this year seemed to be cursed for the League. In July we got to see some of the teams that we were wanting to see and had some success and some failures. In August we qualified for all the post-season Tournaments that we set out to get in. That was a true testament of the Teams attitude. You guys beat some real tough teams in Cincinnati and we lost to some damn good teams also. We beat some of the top teams from up North in the Buckeye Baseball Tournament and lost to the eventual Tournament Champions. You got to see what a Major League pitcher is like with Sam on the team and what it takes to get there. You got to hang out for 9 innings with Bronson Arroyo also. Sam is still pitching for Somerset and throwing well. By no means did we have a team full of studs or anything. What we had was a team of 23 players who went out and played fundamentally sound baseball and stepped up when they needed to. I would take that over a team of pre madonnas that think they don't have to try and get better. We had some guys that never played an inning of College Baseball and stood up and shined bright and some guys that played College ball and vastly improved also. Some of the guys will not return for one reason or another. All we can say is best of luck in your future path of travels. We will take 2006 and build something even better for '07. The players will get better, the schedule will get harder as we find more out of town opponents to play and the season will be made longer. I am sure there will be some more changes in the CRC over the off season and it will only make the League that much better. Look for us to hold our own Tournament over the 4th of July this year and try to get into the Qualifier for the NASPBA World Series for '07. There may also be a Second Team built over the winter months. Time will tell about that.
We are also going to established some end of the year awards to be giving out. They will be announced later this week or next. We will crown an Offensive player of the Year, Defensive Player of the Year, Pitcher of the Year, an Ironman Award and an Overall MVP of the Year. Everybody that played with us this season, you have alot to be proud of. You went out there and played hard nosed Baseball when some people didn't think we would win a game, let alone 25 of them. So to those people I can only say this, told you so. We finished up ranked 23rd in the Nation out of 50, that is good for our first year of Semi-pro Baseball. The state rankings we do not know about because they never finished them. We won the toughest league in the City, even though I know somebody will say we did not play everyone. I do not schedule the league games and we tried to make up all the rainouts but it is what it is. Everyone enjoy yourselves at school this year and we will pick up were we left off sometime in early April. To all of our opponents I want to say best of luck and thanks for playing this summer and hopefully we will see you next year. This is the Old School righthander limping around third, stumbling, falling down and crawling to homeplate saying good-bye and have fun the rest of the year!!!!!!!!!!

Buckeye Baseball Championships

The Awards Presentation for the BB18+ Championship
With all the games now complete at the 1st annual Buckeye Baseball 18+ Championship, the team of Sharon Center Cox Painting walked away with the Big Hardware. They defeated the Westlake Titan team in the Finals this morning at Roselawn to be crowned Champions, Westlake took second and the Chiefs took third. It was a great four days of Baseball in the Queen City as teams from all over the State traveled down to play. Sharon Center went 6-0 through the Field, Westlake was 5-1 and the Chiefs were 4-2 and Bargain Locks were 4-2 also. The highlights were a plenty for the Tournament as the Teams from up North pounded the snot out of the ball and the pitchers for the last 4 teams were awesome. Congratulations to Sharon Center on winning the Championship, to Westlake for runner ups and to Bargain Locks for still playing on the last day. Baseball is truly alive and well in the Buckeye State and will remain that way for many years.

Thanks to Ted Hardy, Tom Giffen and Tom Nerl for putting on a great Tournament and making things run very smoothly all four days. There were no glitches that I was aware of during the Tournament with the one exception of a team bagging everybody at the last minute. That was BS.

Congratulations to the following Chiefs for making the All-Tournament Team

Ronnie Whitt        -      3B/C- 6-15, 2-2B, 2HR, 6RBI, 2BB  .400
Randall Scott       -       RHP  - threw a No-Hitter in the First Game
AJ Hoffmann       -       2B/RHP - 7-18, 5RBI, 0 Errors,   .444
Brian Bonner       -       SS  -  11-17, 6RBI, 2SB,   .647

Congratulations to all the Guys who made the All-Tournament Team this year and to the 3 guys from Sharon Center for the MVP Awards also.

Spears   --    Tournament MVP overall
Konefal  --    Batting MVP
Ventura  --    Pitching MVP

Finally, congratulations to all 9 teams that played in the Championship. It truly was a great Tournament and your team helped to make it that way. Best of luck to the teams that have a few games left this year and good luck next year as we all look to return to the Buckeye Championships and make it even better next season. Congratulations to the 4 teams from Ohio that represented the State at the National Level this weekend also. The Cleveland Mosquitoes, Cincinnati CoBalts, Ohio Woodpeckers & the Canton Stallions. Great job and well done this season on making to the NABF World Series and the AABC Stan Musial World Series. The Cleveland Mosquitoes won the NABF World Series Sunday night in Louisville, 8-3.

The Final Hurrah of the Summer
The Chiefs rolled back into Roselawn this morning at 10:00 for the final game of the Tournament and the season. The only team from Cincinnati still playing, the Chiefs wanted to go out with a bang. The Tribe and the Locks were running very low on pitching and players at this point in time, so it was a battle of attrition. Both teams go quitely in the first as nobody seems to be awake yet. Bargain is set down in order in the top of the 2nd. Aicheles reaches on an error, Reeder grounds in a FC as Aicheles is out at 2nd, 1 out. RJ gets plunked, runners on 1st & 2nd. Scubs hits an infield fly, 2 outs. Shoaf rips a single that scores 'Old School' from 2nd, Bonner hits a single that scores 'Dick' as the Chiefs go up 2-0. Bargain hits a HR to close within one, 2-1. Nothing for the Tribe in the 3rd. Bargain Locks ties it up in the top of the 4th, 2-2. Chiefs plate another run in the 5th as AJ drives in Hamilton to take a 3-2 lead. The Locks threaten in the 6th to no avail as Sowder works out of jamb to hold the lead. The bottom of the inning saw the Scalpers extend their lead to 6-2 as Scubs singles, Shoaf walks, Bonner drives in Scubs, Hamilton drives in Shoaf. AJ takes the hill and sits down Bargain Locks 1-2-3 "as this one belongs to the Chiefs." Tepe throws 4 innings in his first start of the year as we pitched by committee today. Highlights include- Shoaf; 2-3, 2-1B,2SB,R,BB,RBI - Bonner; 3-4,R,2RBI - Eagle; 2-3,R. A tip of the hat to both teams this morning for nutting up and playing this game. Bargain Locks could have very easily said they were going home to play their Tournament game instead and we could have said we were wore out but both teams played a great game on a beautiful Sunday morning. Thanks to the Bulldog players that joined us for the Tournament and helped us out.

Chiefs get into a shootin' match
The second game for the bracket saw the Chiefs take on the #2 seed Sharon Center Cox Painting tonight. The fans that were in attendance for this game were treated to a great game that had a little bit of everything. The Chiefs lead off things and went quitely in the 1st. Sharon scored first on a solo homerun for a 1-0 lead. The Chiefs answered the run with 1 in the 2nd on three straight hits. Sharon came right back with 1 of their own to go up 2-1. Tribe quite in the 3rd. Sharon scores 2 in the bottom of the 3rd for a 4-1 lead. The Chiefs score 2 runs in the 4th to come with in one, 4-3, as Whitt is robbed of a 3r homer as the centerfielder climbs the fence to make the catch. The Painters get the run right back to go up 5-3. The Wahoo Warriors score 2 runs in the 5th to tie things up 5-5. Sharon answered the call and regained the lead with 1 run, 6-5. The Chiefs bust loose for 3 runs in the 6th to take a 8-6 lead as Sharon goes quitely in the 6th. The Guys are set down in the top of the 7th. Sharon is down to their last at bat. The first guy singles, the next strikes out, then a 2b and a 3rb push 2 runs across to tie the game. Next batter strikes out. 2 outs and a runner on third when the number seven batter hits a Texas Leaguer over the SS head to win the game 9-8. Hats off to both teams today they battled each other to the very end and never gave up. Highlights at the dish- Hamilton; 2-4,2-2B,3R - AJ; 3-4,2-1B,2B,R,RBI - RJ; 2-4,2-1B,R,RBI. With the loss, the Chiefs will face Bargain Locks Express tomorrow at 10:00 am to battle for third place in the Tournament.

Chiefs face off against Yorkville in First Game
The first game of the elimination bracket saw the #3 seed Chiefs draw a familiar face in the Yorkville squad. This would be the rubber match up between the two teams this season. Both teams started hot out of the gate as Yorkville pushed two runs across in the first. The Chiefs answered right back in their half of the first with two of their own. Both teams went quitely in the 2nd inning. In the 4th, the Tribe busted out for 4 runs as the hit parade was on. Yorkville got back two runs in the 4th to make it 6-4. They pushed across one more in the 5th to make it 6-5 Chiefs. The Chiefs take on 1 in the 5th and 1 more in the 6th to make it 8-5. Burman closes the door on any rally in the 7th as Yorkville goes down 1-2-3 for a final score of 8-5. Chiefs win and move on to the next round of the bracket and guarantee themselves of playing on Sunday. David throws 4 1/3 for the win and Burman throws 2 2/3 for the save. Highlights at the plate include- Whitt; 2-3,2-2B,3R,BB,R,RBI - Bonner; 4-4,3-1B,2B,2R,SB,RBI - Rodgers; 2-3,2-1B,RBI - Reeds; 1-3,2B,2RBI.

Chiefs lost the Key to the Locks
The night cap of Pool Play saw the Chiefs take on the Bargain Locks Express in Round Three. The Chiefs busted out of the gate with Satterwhite and Whitt going back to back yard shots for a quick 2-0 lead. Bargain answered with 3 of their own in the bottom of the first. The Chiefs could not answer the call of comeback as Bargain tacked on 1 more in the Third for a 4-2 lead. The Tribe loaded the bases in the 7th to no avail as the Locks won 4-2. Pool Play ended with the Chiefs at 2-1 and earning a number 3 seed for the elimination bracket on Saturday. They open play up at 1:30 against the #6 seed at Roselawn. Highlights at the plate- Satterwhite Solo HR, Whitt Solo HR, AJ; 2-3, 2-1B. Hats off to the Express pitcher who settled down after the First and threw a Complete game against us for the win tonight.

Chiefs Herd up the Bisons
The Chiefs played round two of the Pool Play this morning and took on the Columbus Bisons at Roselawn. Things started out slow for the Warriors as they were not use to waking up at that hour and going to the field for a game. The Tribe got things moving in the 3rd inning as the guys pushed three runs across the plate. In the 5th they pushed another run to take a 4-0 lead. That would be enough for the Pitching staff as Mehle and Miller combine for a two hit shut out and a victory for the Chiefs. Mehle throws 5 1/3 of 3 hit ball for the win and Miller gets the save in the final 1 2/3 innings of work. Highlights at the dish include- Shoaf; 2-3, 2-2B,1R,2RBI, Bonner; 2-3,2-1B,1RBI,1SB, RJ; 1-2,1B,2R.

The Chiefs return to action at 6:00 pm tonight against Bargain Locks from up North in round three of pool play.

Chiefs mop up the Crew
The Chiefs opened up the Buckeye Baseball Championship tonight at Roselawn against the Canton Crew from the NEO Roy Hobbs 18+ league. The Chiefs wasted little time as they jumped on the board in the first. The Tribe added 3 more in the 2nd inning. In the 3rd inning the Tribe added 4 more runs thanks to a 3 run Homerun from Whitt. In the 4th inning the wheels fell off for Canton as the Chiefs crossed the plate 6 times on two hits for a 14-0 mercy run rule win. Canton never threatened as they never got a runner passed 2nd base thanks to Scott who fired a no-hit complete shut out tonight! That was the first no-no in three years for the Chiefs. Highlights at the dish included everybody tonight for the Chiefs. The Chiefs are back in action tomorrow morning at 10:30 against the Columbus Bisons at Roselawn #1 and then at 6:00 at Roselawn #1 against Bargain Locks. (Note the time change on the 2nd game.)

Big Smooth Update
On July 22, the Chiefs helped Sam McConnell return to professional Baseball as he signed a contract with the Somerset Patriots of the Atlantic League. The Somerset Patriots are three time Atlantic League Champions. Sam started his first game for the Patriots last night against the first place Long Island Ducks and lost a 6-2 decision. He allowed three earned runs on six hits, striking out five and walking two in 6.1 innings pitched. Sam has appeared in 4 games starting 3 of them, has a 4.15 era in 21.2 innings of work so far. The Chiefs wish Sam the best of the luck the rest of the year and hopes he returns to the Majors this season or next. In other Chief news, Koby has officially signed with Bellarmine University in Louisville Ky for the upcoming season. After spending last season at Shawnee State he was looking for a different location to better himself as pitcher. Nathan Timberlake has also signed for a new college. Nate will be joining the team at West Virginia Tech this fall. He has spent the last two seasons at Shawnee State and looks to return to his freshman year status at West Virginia this fall. The Coaching Staff are also helping two others current members of the team sign on with colleges before the fall season starts.

2005 Season
2005 turned out to be a good season. The team put was put together really quick and it took some time for everyone to get comfortable on the field with each other. By the time the NABF Tourney rolled around the Chiefs were firing on all cylinders and made an impressive run thru the Tourney. With the returning starters and a few key acquistions in the off season, this should prove to be the year that the Chiefs make a lot of noise as they return to the top of Cincinnati Baseball. Good luck to all the teams this year and lets play some ball!!!

NSPBA Pre-Season Top 25 Poll
The Chiefs have gotten the affiliation with the Nat'l Semi-Pro Baseball Assoc. taken care and the OABA Affiliation also. The OABA has been renamed the Buckeye 18 and we are still awaiting their poll to be released. However, the NSPBA have released the latest pre-season poll on April 30. Given, this is only a pre-season poll and it does not mean to much right now. The Chiefs have taken over the 19th position in the poll in only their 2nd full year back in the CRC and their 1st year in the NSPBA. This speaks highly of our strength of schedule, roster and last years accomplishments. The true tell of the team will begin in the Mem. Day Tourney. With a little work and some polish on the rough edges, there will be no reason why the Chiefs cannot climb the poll after the Tournament. Let's work harder in practices and start feeling like a team and the rest will take care of itself. And now the Top 25 Poll: 2006 NSPBA / USA Top 25 as of April 30th Team------------------------------------Wins-------Loss's #1 Hattiesburg, Miss.
