DAY 2…HERE WE GO!
6:30 a.m. – The days start early here at Rockies Fantasy Camp and many Campers are rolling out of bed at this time, no doubt stiff and sore from the first day of action, and the first bus to Salt River Fields is about to depart from the Camp hotel. Yesterday, the busiest day of Camp with the player draft, practice sessions, first game and an overall “feeling out” process, is in the books and now the week will begin to hit its stride.
After the first pair of games, there were some strong performances and both “Dante’s Dudes” and “The Hills” notched wins in their first contest, downing “Vinny’s Cousins” and “Laser’s Legends” 12-7 and 8-5 respectively. Headlining the top first-day performances, Bret Milner of Dante’s Dudes went 3-for-3 with a single, double, a hit-by-pitch and a monster home run over the left-field wall. Other day one standouts included PJ Marcely, also of Dante’s Dudes, John Hefner of The Hills and Steve Bahmer of Vinny’s Cousins.
Campers and staff are going to grab a bite to eat at the Salt River Fields cafeteria and get ready for the first “Kangaroo Court” session of the week, overseen by the vengeful and unforgiving Judge George Frazier. Kangaroo Court banter is always hilarious and it will be interesting to see what indiscretions Judge Frazier will bring to the courtroom this morning. After Court, there will be doubleheader action today with games beginning at 10:00 a.m. and 12:45 p.m., so stay tuned for final scores and updates.
