ISC II – Chippewa Falls, WI – August 14-19

ISC II Score Reporting

Sunday, August 14th, 2005

Just an FYI to all ISC II fans – it’s 7:15 am central time and I’ve tried to check Al’s Archives at and the page isn’t coming up. If this continues to be a problem, we will ensure that all ISC II scores are posted here at The Deuce. We will try to get you winning and losing pitchers if possible, but for sure you will get the ISC II scores here.

It’s going to be a beautiful day here with clear, blue skies and warm temps, but it’s not expected to be oppressively hot.

Less than three hours to the first pitch – can’t wait! 😉



More on Day 2 at the 2005 ISC II ToC

Saturday, August 13th, 2005

Another gorgeous day here in Chippewa Falls. Slight breeze to keep things fresh, but temps in the high 70s/low 80s reported all day.

Out at Casper Park, we got the internet connections all set up and ran some streaming tests when Jim and Maddy Flanagan got into town. Everything is a go – we’ll be on the air at 1 pm central tomorrow.

Watched the County-Bow game tonight … two massive home runs off Muizelaar by Patrick Shannon and Thomas Makea for County… Eduardo Leonardo hit a 2-run bomb for Bow off Kirkpatrick… Piechnick came in in the 5th and allowed one of Muizey’s runners to score … County actually scored the 3rd and 4th runs on passed balls by Box … Muizey hit batters after both home runs … Mata started for County … Kirkpatrick in in the 4th … someone said Mata hasn’t thrown a complete game all year??? … Mata throwing hard but nowhere near the zone… a lot of fans grumbling about Zack and a few ladies in the front row actually chanted “We Want Zack” when coach John Becker made a mound visit at one point …

Tomorrow it all starts for the ToC … make sure you tune in at 1 pm central for St. Paul ABS Villard vs Sioux Falls Sox followed by Niagara Snappers vs Bar of Appleton at 3 pm … Harriston starts their journey for the 3-peat vs last year’s ASA A Champs McKie’s at 7 pm and #1 Tavistock plays the host team Chippewa Falls Saw Dust City at 9 pm …

Day 2- Eau Claire/Chippewa Falls

Saturday, August 13th, 2005

Posting this note from Casper Park at Chippewa Falls, where the ISC II Tournament of Champions gets underway tomorrow, Sunday, August 14, 2005 at 11:00 a.m. Wisconsin (Central) time. The Denmark, WI Circle Tap Lumberjacks, Memphis TN Posse, Galena, IL Keg & Cask Liquor Store and Wausau, WI Rep & Baja’s get the honors of playing the first games.

Blair and I were at the fields today, getting our “Pepsi wagon” broadcast booth ready to go for the ISC Broadcasts. First broadcast will be at 1pm tomorrow, CST. (See for complete details. The folks in Chippewa Falls have really outdone themselves in prepping the ballpark. They mowed the outfield grass again today and have been dragging, and chalking all day long. The concession stand looks ready to go, and I can vouch that the beer is cold – well, at least the cans in the cooler I saw are. The menu prices can’t be beat, though all it does today is make my mouth water, as they are not open for business ’til Sunday. As Blair mentioned yesterday, the beer is 3 for $5. And if that wasn’t enough, now they are offering 6 for $10 😉

The weather today has been gorgeous, sunny and warm with a bit of a breeze — much more comfortable than the heat wave that rolled through here when I was here for the NAFA World Series in 2003. The improvements from those days are everywhere. Concrete pads around the backstops, new bleachers, grass filled in around the diamonds, larger tented picnic areas, and more.

We listened to some of the ISC games today from Eau Claire, while doing our final sound checks. We are looking forward to getting our games on the air starting tomorrow and seeing some great fastball action all week long. Thanks to all of you who have taken the time to do an “online profile” at ballparkradio, to help provide bio info for our broadcasts. They make for interesting reading.

Until 11am tomorrow, when we hear the words, “play ball” !

Day 1 in EC/CF

Friday, August 12th, 2005

Checked out the ToC parks today … there will be some seating at all the diamonds and there is more than one tent, so there will be shade. All the dugouts are covered and water will be provided for all games.

Beer will be 3 for $5.00 – yes, that’s right 3 for $5.00 – and you can carry it anywhere in the park.

The black dirt that was so prevalent at the NAFA tournament a couple years back has been grassed over and temporary fences at 250 have been erected on all four diamonds.

It’s all set to go – just awaiting the teams.

Watched a few games at the WT tonight too – County hit the sh!t out of the ball… Kitchener mercied the Czechs … Jamie Simpson shut out Blackhawk AC … Skillings hit two out … Parks are beautiful and so was the weather.

More tomorrow …
