guessed the first opponent against whom we would
score ten runs (Whitby T2). The other three
landmarks - Daniel M's 10th walk, Matt R's 3rd

for each achievement. Matt R stole three bases
on June 29th (Daniel's guess of July 10th was the
nearest), Andrew Z struckout his 10th batter on July
10th (Daniel's guess was perfectly accurate) and
Daniel himself walked for the 10th time on July 10th
(Daniel again guessed the exact date).

played in the game. At the time, the statistics from this game were
not included. However, this game has now been re-classified as an
'18u' game rather than an exhibition game and the statistics and result of
the 2-0 win have been added to the NY Midget recordbook. Notable about
that game was a win for Brendon Bernard, a save for Eric Treble, an RBI from
Garrett Davies, and two hits from Steve Hersch.
