Washington Post 218 kicked off the season with an 8-3 win over Warrenton Post 122 at Ronsick Field last night. Seth Bollmann, Ross Seitter, Noah Borgerding and John Himmelberg had two hits apiece and Mitch Hammack pitched six innings for the win. He gave up two runs on four hits with eight strike outs, two walks and one hit batter. Both teams struggled in the field at times with Warrenton committing seven errors and Washington four.

Washington is back in action Friday night with a home game against Daniel Boone at 7:00. It's "Bikes and Tykes Night" at the ballpark. Post 218 will be having a bike show in conjunction with Tykes night. All motorcycles should be in by 6:15. Judging will be done by both teams playing that night with awards going to the top four spots. Bike Show participants will be invited onto the field for the national anthem. Winning presentations will be done between the 2nd and 3rd inning after 7:30. Bikes will be staged in the parking lot behind the City Pool on the corners of High Street and Circle Drive. There is no cost to participate. Kids 12-and-under will receive free ice cream and will also be allowed to run the bases.

I have been behind the microphone for 10 years now. In the course of time, I have covered many elections and have seen first-hand how bruising and hurtful campaigns can be to people. None have been as difficult to watch, however, as the annexation battle in Washington--which pitted good people who care about their community against good people who care about their community.
