Horseshoe season wraps up
The Lake Superior Horseshoe League wrapped up it's third season on Sept. 25. With Dwindling numbers of players it was a season of struggles for scheduling and players tiring of playing the same people every week. As much rain as there has been seen this year the league played 16 weeks without a weather cancellation.
In the standings it was a very exciting finish with three players having a chance for first place. The championship came down to the last inning of the last game on the last night before it was decided. Ricky Clark beat Grover Melander by three points to win top honors. In second place was Joe Raycraft with Melander in third. The race for most improved player also went to Clark. In his second season of pitching, he more than tripled his ringer percentage of last year. It shows what practice can do if a player wants to improve.
The players have decided to change the game night from Monday to Thursday next season in the hope of attracting some new players. New players are badly needed in order to sustain the league into the future. Players pay $20 a piece in dues for the season with 100 percent paid out in prices. The season begins in early June and runs into late September.
