Base Paths: Went to a baseball game and this broke out...


Niagara Gazette — It’s not even how you play the game, it’s how much, at the time, you care.

GAME OVER: Sincere thanks to all who commented, pro or con, on the Niagara U softball situation, especially the player who fired off three e-mails in five minutes. She has a great future in journalism. But in this space, the issue is settled. All who wrote may check their in-box next week; Base Paths always confirms signals.

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.
