Trotters take TC MSBL title

Submitted by on October 18, 2010 – 12:27 pm 10 Comments

BLOOMINGTON, Ill. — The Trotters defeated the Stallions 5-4 to take the Twin City Men’s Senior Baseball League championship Saturday at the PONY Complex.

Trotters starter Mike Badorek (pictured) hurled a complete-game victory, surrendering six hits and two walks with nine strikeouts. The Trotters’ Chris Warren had three hits, including two doubles, and scored twice. Jim Broadbear had two hits and two RBI while Mike Orgler also had two hits for the Trotters.

The Trotters rallied from a 4-1 deficit with four runs in the bottom of the fifth. With one out, Jeff Jacob doubled and scored on a single by Adam Nielsen. Warren doubled, Orgler singled in a run, and Badorek followed with a sacrifice fly to tie the score. Broadbear singled home the go-ahead run.

The Stallions threatened in the ninth with a two-out single by Jon Berry, but the Trotters’ Tom Shadid hauled in Chris Kaufman‘s long fly to centerfield for the final out.

Tom Whiting took the loss for the Stallions despite a league record 16 strikeouts in eight innings.

    Would someone please talk my wife into letting me play again…I miss you guys!!!!!

    You don’t have to answer that Joe. Words can’t describe the merits of those enshrined in the Pony League Umpire Hall of Fame. (Although sometimes I overhear players in the dugout trying to do so!)

  • Jay Barth says:


    I apologize making slight of your age and memory, by the way, what was it that you were in the Hall of Fame for?


  • Joe Powell says:

    It justs so happens that I don’t have a life outside of sports officiating and working with computers. I don’t need to constantly remind people of that fact by trying to keep up with Facebook and Twitter.

  • Jay Barth says:

    Hey Joe,

    Is that what happens when you get old? Hey come on, everybody else was thinking it, I just decided to put it in text.

  • Joe Powell says:

    Well Professor Warren, I choose not to use Facebook or Twitter because they are two more things I need passwords for. I have enough passwords to remember without two more. I am having to reset my passwords for some website almost daily.

  • Jack says:

    Well, Dr. Powell, it’s too bad you don’t have Facebook, as you would see that you and your sidekick, LGM, are prominently featured on the CornbeltBaseball page.

  • Joe Powell says:

    I really don’t understand why the two Hall of Fame umpires were not mentioned in the article about the Men’s league championship.

  • Brian Thede says:

    Badorek may have set a record for most opponent’s bats broken in a game, including 2 on consecutive pitches to one batter and another that still had the stickers on it.
