A Beautiful setting for Base Ball, repeat MO Cup Champion Perfectos, and no restroom facilities…This must be Lafayette Park. The St. Louis Unions Vintage Base Ball Club defeated the St. Louis Perfectos, 9-0 and 8-5, in a doubleheader sweep of the 2014 MO Cup Champs, Saturday at Lafayette Park…..in the first game against the JB Nine’s friendly crosstown rivals, Matt ‘Scoops’ Lurk had five hits, while Chad ‘Lefty’ Laramore and Jeremy ‘Zippy’ Hunter had four hits each….Scoops knocked in three runs for the Unions….in the second game, Lefty, Zippy, and Mike ‘Parttime’ Ashley had three hits each, while Parttime had three RBIs….some of the Unions will return to Moose Meadow in Swansea, IL next Saturday at 1pm to take part in the end-of-season Goodwill Game….there is no admission free, so I expect to see a bunch of cranks in attendance for a celebration of the 2014 season….food, base ball, beer, whiskey, and more food….hip hip huzzah!
