JACOBS’ LATHER: Look for Amherst legislators, who abhor anything new in their town, to try to craft a law barring Niagara-Wheatfield softball’s Nikki Jacobs, or at least charging her a fee. In a friendly non-leaguer at Amherst High’s open range last week, she launched two home runs that interrupted the distant lacrosse game.Doug Smith offer his observations and wit on baseball and softball every Monday with Base Paths.
