New scoreboard only highlight for Millers in Fun Fest loss

The New Richmond Millers were hoping to put on quite a show to go with the unveiling of the new scoreboard at Citizens Field on Friday in their annual Fun Fest clash with the Osceola Braves.

The unveiling proved to be the only excitement for the Millers and their fans. The Millers started slowly and never got rolling in an 11-0 loss to the Braves

The loss drops the Millers to 4-8 in the St. Croix Valley League. Osceola improves to 5-7 with the win.

Friday’s game was anticipated as a pitching duel, but the plot changed once before the game, and then again in the early innings. The first plot twist came during pre-game warmups, when Osceola ace Jared Dettmann felt tightness in his elbow. It was decided that he’d be replaced in the lineup by lefty Tyler Maxon, who was the ace of the Osceola High School team this spring and was one of the finest pitchers in the Middle Border Conference.

New Richmond countered with Joe Miller, who struck out 19 batters when he faced the Braves three weeks ago. It was clear that the Braves had done their homework on Miller. They tagged Miller for three runs and four hits, including a pair of well-struck doubles, in the opening inning.

Meanwhile, it was Maxon who looked like the veteran ace pitcher. The Millers stood and watched an incredible number of pitches that were called strikes, leading to 16 strikeouts in the game dead trigger 2 hack.

“The guys could not pick up his curveball,” said a clearly frustrated New Richmond manager Ryan Stephens.

There were a number of reasons for the frustration. Both teams badly needed the win to keep state playoff hopes alive and the rivalry simmers in a steady undercurrent in these games. The Millers were hoping to put on a better show in front of their largest home crowd of the season.

“It was a great atmosphere, the crowd was good,” Stephens said. “The scoreboard added to the beauty of the field.”

The Millers were limited to three hits in the game. Josh Calleja and Caleb Belter singled. Joey Gaspord lined a double off the outfield fence for the Millers’ best chance of scoring.

The next game for the Millers will be this Friday when they play at Menomonie at 7:30 p.m. The next home date for the Millers is Sunday, when they host Plum City at 1 p.m. The Millers will also be at home next Wednesday, facing Elmwood

The summer is going by rapidly and so is the American Legion baseball season

The regular season is wrapping up for the Junior Legion teams this week, with league playoffs beginning Thursday.
Here is a recap of the action for each of the local Legion teams.

NR Seniors

The New Richmond Senior Legion team ran its win streak to five games before seeing it end last Thursday.

New Richmond swept a double-header against Prescott last Wednesday, with 7-1 and 7-0 wins. This matchup was viewed as important by the New Richmond boys because this was their only chance to face a Middle Border Conference opponent this season.

“Our guys were definitely motivated,” said New Richmond Senior coach Mike Weiss click here.

Dante LaDuke pitched the opener and Jake Weiss hurled the shutout in the second game, the team’s first shutout of the season. Weiss led the offense in the opener with three hits. Eric Hedlund, Caleb Manecke and Andrew Hilby all had two hits. New Richmond broke the game open with four runs in the third inning, sparked by Hilby’s two-run single.

Weiss threw a four-hitter in the second game. Hilby and Manecke again produced two hits to lead the offense.

The team’s win streak reached five when New Richmond topped Menomonie 9-2 in the opener of a double-header on Thursday. Jordan Fischer continued his stellar summer, throwing a two-hitter. He carried a no-hitter into the seventh inning.

Hilby again supplied the big hit of the game. His three-run double in the third inning gave New Richmond a comfortable lead.

Menomonie came back to win the second game, 15-6. Coach Weiss said the team ran out of experienced pitchers so Blake Kretovics was given the pitching start. While Kretovics had a couple wild stretches, he also showed he has strong possibilities for the future.

“Blake, he throws hard and he has the frame to be a solid pitcher in his junior and senior years,” Coach Weiss said.

The Senior team is on the road this Wednesday before hosting Oakdale, Minn., this Thursday at 7 p.m.

NR Juniors

New Richmond’s Junior Legion won once in its three games last week. New Richmond split a double-header against Somerset last Tuesday, winning the opener 14-0 before losing the second game 5-3.

Daniel Peterson continues to be one of the brightest surprises of the team. He allowed three hits in five innings of work to earn the pitching win in the opener. Clayton Van Dyk and Cole Tappe led the team with two hits. New Richmond took advantage of 14 walks in breaking the game open.

The second game was a close battle with both teams scoring in the opening inning. Somerset scored three runs in the third inning. New Richmond scored twice in the bottom of the third, but couldn’t break through again.

Levi Schoenecker took the pitching loss for New Richmond.

New Richmond took a 9-8 loss against Baldwin last Thursday. New Richmond scored three times in the first, sparked by hits from John Earley and Shaun Henke. Baldwin scored seven runs in the first and built up an 8-3 lead before New Richmond charged back. New Richmond tied the game at 8-8, only to see Baldwin score the deciding run on a pair of errors in the sixth inning.

Somerset Juniors

Somerset’s Junior Legion team reached the playoffs, sparked by two wins and two forfeits in recent games.

Somerset received a forfeit from Luck-Frederic on June 2. That was followed by a 6-1 win over Unity on July 2. Logan Peterson looked like a senior in this game, pitching a complete game win and leading the offense with two hits.

“Logan’s been throwing pretty consistently,” said Legion coach Rich Vetterkind. “He’s a very level-headed kid. He recognized the fact that we need him pitching for next year.”

Croix Stambaugh had a big offensive game, singling three times, including a pair of two-run hits.

Somerset traveled to New Richmond last Tuesday, splitting a pair of games. New Richmond won the opener 14-0 and Somerset took the second game 5-3. Three young pitchers struggled to locate the strike zone in the opening game.

Brett Vetterkind pitched the complete game in the win. Tommy Grygienc led the team with three hits. Hunter Baillargeon came through with two hits, including a two-run single to produce the opening runs of the game.

Coach Vetterkind said the defense played extremely well in this game, particularly Peterson at shortstop, where he handled several hard smashes.

Somerset then received a forfeit from Amery on Thursday.

This Thursday, Somerset will be the top seed in the league playoffs, which will be held at Rice Lake shadow fight 2 tool.

Andrew Nusbaum of the Wisconsin Department of Tourism presented a check for $17,600 to the City of New Richmond, Saturday, July 11 as part of the state’s Joint Effort Marketing program. The City of New Richmond applied for the grant on behalf of VFW Post 10818 covet fashion cheats online. The funds will be used for the marketing expenses associated with STRONGER TOGETHER – OPERATION WELCOME HOME during which the Vietnam Traveling Memorial Wall will be on display in Freedom Park in New Richmond from September 10-14.

“That is an underestimation and quite frankly maybe irrelevant. I’m honored to be standing here with all of these veterans. I am humbled by all of you who were willing to lay down your lives for our freedom,” said Nussbaum at Saturday’s ceremony.

According to New Richmond District 3 Alderperson Scottie Ard, the event continues to gain momentum as more and more veterans and their families are hearing about the opportunity to visit the one-third size traveling replica of the Vietnam Memorial in person this September moviestarplanet hack.

“The wounds are very deep. In meeting with a lot of the families who lost sons, who lost husbands, in meeting with the veterans themselves, they are not healed. You can’t help but be moved by their stories. We will have a service unit out there Saturday and Sunday to engage any veteran who needs help or information,” said Ard line rangers game.

Adding to the impact of the event in September will be the inclusion of the replica of the Canadian Wall at the same event for the first time.

“What makes this even more significant, we have a large number of people from this area who fought alongside the Canadians. The Canadian Wall will be here as well. It’s the first time the two walls have appeared together. This is going to be huge,” said Ard madden mobile cheats tool.

A year of development and growth

With her reign as Fairest of the St. Croix County Fair coming to an end, Rachel Kromrey has learned many things and done her best to represent St. Croix County throughout the year. And if given the chance, Kromrey said she would do it all over again blitz brigade hack.

“I would absolutely do it again. Being Fairest of the Fair was an ideal position for me to represent a summer tradition and county that I’ve always loved, and a way to actively participate in the fair outside of the show ring. It’s truly a bittersweet feeling as it comes to an end,” Kromrey said.

When asked what she felt her year as Fairest was about, Kromrey said it was about development.

“My goals for my reign were to promote the program and fundraise,” Kromrey said. “I increased promotion by creating the ‘St. Croix County Fairest of the Fair’ Facebook page, attending events that were new for the program, and asking for candidates via newspaper articles, announcements at local high schools and putting up fliers throughout the county.”

When it came to fundraising for the fair, Kromrey said she was proud of debuting the “Kiss a Critter” fundraiser at last year’s fair and baking a cake to auction off at the May Fair shadow fight 2 hack.

“Overall, it was a fulfilling year,” Kromrey said. “Any time you’re directly involved with something you have a passion for, you will look back and feel accomplished with the role you had in it and proud that your actions helped benefit the bigger picture.”

When it comes to her favorite parts of being Fairest for a year, Kromrey right away turns to her time being hostess of the 2014 fair and getting to know the new candidates for the 2015 title.

“Hosting the fair was the most fun four days of my life and after getting to know the candidates, I’m excited for the future of the Fairest program,” Kromrey said.

The most memorable moment for Kromrey didn’t come at the St. Croix County Fair, or any of the other 16 parades and events she was part of throughout the year, but instead centered around her experiences at the Wisconsin Association of Fairs Convention boom beach hack.

“It was a valuable learning experience as well as solid motivation for the upcoming fair season,” Kromrey said. “I was pleasantly surprised with the Wisconsin Association of Fairs Convention. I thought that the crowning of Wisconsin Fairest of the Fairs would be more of a pageant, when it was actually very down to earth and every candidate had a genuine interest in the fair industry and Wisconsin agriculture.”

Of all the things she has taken part of as Fairest, Kromrey will miss hosting the fair as well as the time she spent with her Junior Fairests.

“I’ll miss hosting the St. Croix County Fair and all the fun I had with my Junior Fairests, Sophie Anderson and Abigail Lingenfelter,” Kromrey said. “If I had to give advice to the next Fairest of the Fair, I’d tell them to make sure they achieve the goals they set for their reign. Fairest is an independent position and every effort you put in will help the program and the fair.”

Although her reign will end when the new Fairest if crowned during Thursday’s ceremony at Fairest of the Fair coronation at Croix Court, starting at 7 p.m., Kromrey will always remember her time as Fairest.

“It’s provided me with a year’s worth of wonderful memories and has given me the opportunity to meet and work with people involved with the fair industry,” Kromrey said. “It’s been a unique experience in its own right and was worth every minute.” battle camp cheats
