With clear skies and a crisp spring air passing through the stadium, the JERKS of Hammond finally kicked off their home opener against the BULLS Friday Night! As the familiar smells of a groomed field and fresh pine tar filled the air, the atmosphere created an epic platform for battle between Boys and Men! 

 

The first Friday night of the season brought all sorts of characters out in celebration of our JERKS season kick off!! A few new and many returning faces were to be seen at Hammond Stadium under the lights, to support our hometown boys in their clash against the Bulls. This year's home opener also had the pleasure of hosting "Drunkest Fan"In good fun our "2017 Drunkest Fan" award was won by Tyler Heidrich.  Tyler came out slugging one-liners all night, being a great team supporter and biggest LUSH at the field on Friday! - Way to go Tyler!

 

"Lets Play Ball!"

The Bulls came out strong scoring 2 runs in the top of the first as a result of a couple first inning blunders by the Jerks and a timely stroke by Bulls #11. NO FEAR with the top of the Jerks lineup coming to the plate!!! The first three batters reached base and a timely single by Ed and RBI by Leoppky scored 3 runs in the bottom of the first inning! This put the Jerks back on top 3-2!

The Bulls cashed in one more run the following inning to tie up the score 3-3 and then the defensive battle was on! Pitchers from both sides dueled as the offensive parties couldn't score for a 6 inning span.  As the 8th inning came into sight the final push by the Bulls gained them a 2 run lead which held against the JERKS. Although runners were available on base in the bottom of the 8th and 9th innings, the home team couldn't capitalize on the opportunity falling short in a 5-3 final.

 

 

The Jerks are on the road next week traveling to City Park in Langley to take on the Canadians - a 7PM start. (5096 - 207th Street, Langley)

 

JERKS next home game will take place at 7pm, under the lights on April 28th at Hammond! - see you all there!

 

That is the way this game is -- you win, you loose you celebrate and you suffer.

You can't sit on a lead and run a few plays into the line and just kill the clock. You've got to throw the ball over the damn plate and five the other man his chance. That's why baseball is the greatest game of them all.
