Jayson and Alumni

The ninth annual Jayson Jewell Memorial baseball game was changed up a little bit this year from being a game on the American Legion summer schedule to an Alumni game between the current PI Midwest team and a team comprised of alumni (former) players.

Prior to the game, the Jayson Jewell Award was presented by Jeff and Terri to this year's winner, Mike Emodi.  Jeff and Terri were joined by five of the previous eight winners.

As for the alumni game that followed, we will just comment that the game included everything from good play in the field,  rubber armed pitchers, decent play in the field, shenanigans on the base paths, poor play in the field, and lots of runs scored that all likely resulted in tired and achy bodies of the alumni players today.
