Amateur Baseball Report, 1996 July 8

The Saugerties Dutchmen continued their recent woes this past week, managing to play only one of their four scheduled games. Mother Nature continued to harry this year's Kingston-Saugerties series, as the annual fourth of July meeting between the Dutchmen and the Kingston Mariners was rained out. The troubles continued on the weekend as reported by our Hudson Valley correspondent, Babs O'Reilly:
On Saturday, July 6, the Saugerties Dutchmen were bernt by Mama's Pizza with former major league pitcher, Jim Bouton pitching a complete 9 innings. The final score was an embarassing Mama's 16 Dutchmen 6. Bouton was not untouchable, though. Brian Lindhorst hit a two run homer off Bouton and Kiko Romaguera had a pair of hits, including a two-run double in the bottom of the first. The Dutchmen hurt themselves with five errors and allowing seven unearned runs. Erik Tresvik was given the loss, sespite allowing only one earned run in four innings.

On Sunday, July 7th a doubleheader was slated and Grand Slam USA called at 10:30am and pulled out. They will not be invited back to Cantine Field since this is the 3rd time in two years that they did this.

From the beautiful Hudson Valley, this is Babs O'Reilly with the baseball report.

Weather permitting, the Dutchmen will have an active week ahead of them, with the Schenectady Blue Jays coming to Cantine field for a 6:00 game Tuesday, followed by the Ellenville Americans. The Dutchmen host the Monticello Rockies on Saturday, that contest being preceded by the annual Dutchmen alumni game. The Dutchies have next Sunday off, but then they're back in action with a Monday twilight game against the Hyde Park Cardinals.
