Roncalli @ Brillion
April 29, 2021
With rain pelting down hard just prior to game time, we weren’t sure if we would be able to begin the contest. However, the rain didn’t dampen the spirits of either Roncalli or Brillion varsity baseball programs. We wanted to express our appreciation to both teams for a well-played game and to game management, for having the field safely ready at game time. Reece Stangel of Roncalli and Karter Trace of Brillion were the clear “example setters” for their teams during this contest. Each of them showed lots of hustle, excellent sportsmanship while interacting with opponents, coaches and umpires, and spent a little extra time helping me after numerous plays by retrieving bats and foul balls. Both the communities of Manitowoc and Brillion should be proud to have student athletes who act in this manner. We as umpires appreciate the positive atmosphere these young men create on the field. Thank you to all involved and best of luck this season!
