Fairbury Seniors Hang On For Opening Round Win

Fairbury did what they had to do in each inning to ensure a hard-fought, 5-4 win over Aurora in first-round action Friday in the Class B Area 4 American Legion Senior Baseball Tournament played at Levitt Stadium in York.

The two teams combined for just eight hits in the game, with Fairbury out hitting Aurora, 4-3.

Aurora got on the scoreboard in the bottom of the first as Jake Kittle singled and came around to score off a sacrifice fly by Eli Bricker.

Fairbury answered back in the top of the second tying the game at 1 off an RBI double from Bryce Barnts scoring Nate Klaumann.

After a scoreless third inning by both squads, Fairbury took a 2-1 lead, as Adam Wasserman led off with a walk, stole second base, and advanced to third on a sacrifice bunt by Klaumann.

Wasserman scored on a misplayed ground ball off the bat of Barnts by Auroras infield.

Bring school supplies to Diode Communications and register for an iPad Mini.

This year Diode Communications and Diller Telephone Company are collecting school supplies to be given to Blue Valley Community Action (BVCA). The supplies and the money donated will be distributed to the clients that they have on their caseload.

Ryan (Bailey, Family and Community Services Manager) at BVCA told me they could really use the erasers, markers, folders, loose paper, backpacks and Kleenex, Danni Starck, Director or Marketing at Diode Communications, said. But we will of course take anything....including monetary donations.

There will be two drawings for the iPad Minis that are worth $300 each. The prizes were donated by Diode and the Sandman family. One drawing will be for the customers who bring in items and the second is for the employees. Each employee has pledged to donate at least $10 each. There is no required amount for anyone to donate.
