I-Medical downs Fezell in battle of Punxsy squads

June 6, 2012

PUNXSUTAWNEY —Two big innings told the story when the more-experienced I-Medical team defeated the younger Fezell Enterprises team 11-1 in five innings in Indiana County Youth League action Wednesday in Punxsutawney.

A six-run first started it, and after three zeroes on the board, I-Medical added five more in the fifth to end it.

The I-Medical offense jumped out to a fast start, scoring six runs on just two hits and five walks in the home half of the first after Ryan Jones set Fezell down in order in the top half.

The Zak Zone

June 6, 2012

Early Wednesday morning — and by early Wednesday morning, I mean shortly after I woke up at 10:30 a.m. — I was sitting on my front porch enjoying some sunshine, a cool breeze, a cup of coffee and a good book, when some background noise caught my ear.

It was a repetitive series of sounds — wheels whirring across pavement, feet lifting from a surface, temporary silence and, finally, a crashing sound.

Turned out, it was my next door neighbor's oldest son trying to perfect the art of an ollie on his skateboard.
