Frogs End 2010 Season With Loss

   Royal Oak, MI- The Wahoo BBC hosted the Frogs on September 25th, 2010, at Starr-Jaycee Park in Royal Oak, Michigan.  The Wahoos were better prepared than the undermanned Frogs' club,  and that was reflected in the final score as the Wahoos talleyed 22 aces to the Frogs' nine.
   With the season ending loss, the Frogs finished the 2010 campaign with 11 wins and 10 losses.

Wyandotte Stars Run Over Frogs

   Wyandotte, MI - The Frogs crossed the Michigan border and a vintage timeline on Saturday, May 15, 2010, when they traveled to Wyandotte, Michigan, to play the Wyandotte Stars club.  The Stars play by the rules of 1867, and the heavily depleted Frogs club had trouble making the adjustment.
   Despite tallying six aces in the second inning and five in the fourth, the Frogs were unable to match the relentless assault of the Wyandotte strikers.  The final score was 29 to 17 in favor of the Stars.
   The Frogs' strikers were led by Jeremy "Professor" Potter, who talleyed four aces on the day.

Frogs Open 20th Season by Taking Pair From Inmates

    Toledo, OH - The Sylvania Great Black Swamp Frogs team opened its 20th season of vintage competition on Sunday, May the Second, by defeating a much-improved nine from Wood County, the Infirmary Inmates.  In the first contest, the Frogs tallied eightaces to the Inmates' one.  In the second contest, the Frogs kept the Wood County nine off the scoreboard while talling five aces of their own.

Darius "Hoot" Sarosh was the big striker of the day, tallying four bases on one hit into the woods, and three sacks on another strike.

The Frogs welcomed back Dan "Money" Close and Rob "Hammer" Rudski, each who missed the majority of last season.  Both players played fine defense at the corners of the infield, helping preserve the Frogs' victories.

Defensively, the Frogs were also aided by Jeff "Wrong Way" Rice and Craig "Duke" Sneider behind the plate.  Both made fine plays on foul tics.  Cyrus "Cyclone" Sarosh also aided the Forgs with his blazing speed, running down several fly balls in the outfield.

   Inning            1  2  3  4  5  6  7       Total Aces
