Scorer's comments and observations

Baseball? It's just a game-- as simple as a ball and a bat. Yet as complex as the American spirit it symbolizes. It's a sport, business and sometimes even religion."

Most Cosmic Player (MCP)
Timothy Leary


The Pisces snuffed the Warriors. They did it with good execution all around. Patron Saint of the psychedelic movement Timothy Leary was rocky for the first three innings then settled down, and pitched a robust complete game yielding only two runs. At the plate the Pisces batted the ball all over the place 12 times including an amazing 6 doubles, a triple from centerfielder Digit and a homerun from thirdbaseman Mick Jagger. And the Pisces did it in the field with their gloves too, racking up three nifty double-plays.

The Warriors looked tired and George Custer spent the whole game skirting diaster. Manager Norman Schwarzkopf left Custer in for a complete game, but why did he do that?

One interesting point about this game was the spectacular play of Pisces firstbaseman, Allen Ginsberg. Ginsberg's corporeal demise occured last Saturday, April 5, at 2:39 a.m. and so there was some doubt about whether the Patron Saint of the Beat Generation would even play. But Ginsberg not only played, he had a 3-for-4 day, with two doubles and a run-batted-in. (CBA has published online a special memorial plate in honor of Ginsberg.
