2010 First-Half Finale
Happy Father’s Day from the LumberBlog!
Believe it or not, the first half comes to an end today for your Clinton LumberKings. There’s no playoff spot on the line, only a shot at sole posession of third place and some momentum going into the second half. If the Kings beat Beloit and Peoria loses to Quad Cities, Clinton’s 38-31 record would put them alone in third. That’s what we play for this afternoon.
A tradition continues today as we reflect on the year so far with the 2010 First-Half Highlight Reel. From Kalian Sams’ dramatic home runs to Nick Franklin’s amazing first full season to unbelievable plays in right field by James Jones to the strikeout artistry of Jon Hesketh and more, hear it all (and then some).
