  • DCL BASEBALL: Can the Ports Top the Braves?

    We are at the halfway point in the 2022 Door County League baseball season, and it’s time to see what we’ve learned. Sister Bay and Kolberg are still the two teams, but they have some company.

  • DCL BASEBALL: Hall of Fame Help Wanted

    A Hall of Famer is defined as a person who’s recognized as one of the top performers in an activity, especially a sport. The Door County League started a Hall of Fame during the early 1990s to recognize those players who had stellar careers not only in the county league, but also during their time […]

  • DCL BASEBALL: Numbers Crunch

    The first texts came Saturday night, telling me I would need to suit up for the Institute Cubs for Sunday’s game against Kolberg.

  • DC League Baseball: Week-Four Surprise

    I hope everyone had a safe and relaxing Memorial Day weekend – a great opportunity to spend time with family and friends and enjoy each other’s company with cookouts and get-togethers.  What was more important was the recognition of those who sacrificed their lives so that we could have the freedoms to do these very things.

  • Door County League: It’s Just a Game

  • DC League Baseball: And They’re Off

    As we all know, nobody’s perfect. Not even a perfect stranger. In a quick haste to get the first article out, I butchered a couple of names last week. For Kolberg, I forgot Nick LeCaptain in the preview, partly because at the time I was watching a spring-football press conference with his brother and had […]

  • Sawyer’s Dramatics Give Bays DCL Playoff Title

    Tom Sawyer was this year’s Door County League (DCL) batting champion. He was also the league’s MVP. And in the final game of the DCL baseball season, he was the hero.  Sawyer went to the plate in the bottom of the ninth inning with a man on first, his Sister Bay Bays home crowd tense […]
