Dave Shaffer, Lake High School's director of athletics and director of buildings and grounds, probably doesn't remember what a summer vacation feels like.

Shaffer, along with other Lake staff, students, members of the community and local businesses, have been hard at work trying to get things back in semi-order since the June 5 tornado blew threw Millbury and destroyed the high school.

One of Shaffer's many tasks this spring and summer is to figure out a way for the Flyers' athletic teams - for fall sports in particular — to continue their schedules as planned.

“It's like rebuilding an athletic department and school from scratch,” Shaffer said. “Our focus is on everything. We want to be able to operate fall sports and we also have to line up winter facilities. We don't have a facility. The only outdoor facility not affected by the tornado was the softball field. Everything else has had some level of damage to it.”

The school's football field, Flyer Stadium, suffered heavy damage from the tornado, and Shaffer said he and his staff are still assessing that damage.

Bowling Green State University baseball player Patrick Martin (Clay) was a


last minute addition to the Ohio Monarchs Gold summer collegiate team, but he is coming up big.

“He’s helped us in getting key base hits in RBI situations,” said general manager Steve Timofeev.

Through nine games played, Martin has a .320 average, a .560 slugging percentage, and a .433 OBP. In 30 plate appearances, he has eight hits, six runs, four RBIs, and five walks. Of those eight hits, he has three singles, four doubles, and one triple – good for 14 total bases.

In addition, he has two stolen bases in two attempts. Manager Ed Mouch said Martin has played in right or center field, and not on the mound, per request of his coach at BGSU.

On the mound for BGSU this past season, Martin went 2-1 in 14 appearances (2 starts) with a 3.60 ERA. He struck out 14 in 25 innings pitched. He did not have any hitting stats.

Cyclones, Squires vintage base ball begin seasons

Two local vintage base ball teams, the North Baltimore Cyclones and the Spiegel Grove Squires, are headstrong into their summer seasons.

The Rutherford B. Hayes Presidential Center’s vintage base ball team, the Spiegel Grove Squires, will play their first home match of the season June 27 at 1 p.m. in Spiegel Grove.

The Squires will be joined in this competitive demonstration of 1860s-style base ball by the Forest City Base Ball Club. The match is free and open to all. Players wear vintage-style uniforms, use 19th-century-style equipment, and observe such regulations as no cursing, no base stealing, no untucked shirts, and no calling other players by their first names – the courtesy title “Mister” is used in all references to teammates or rivals.

The Rutherford B. Hayes Presidential Center is located at the corner of Hayes and Buckland avenues, Fremont.

This past Sunday Wood County’s newest vintage base ball team, the Cyclones, managed by Lake High School graduate and charter member of Toledo’s Roger Bresnahan Chapter of the Society for American Baseball Research, Craig Lammers, played the Tippecanoe Canal Jumpers out of Tipp City, Ohio. The Cyclones lost 10-6, but Buckeye Cable Sports Network broadcaster Greg Franke, a player and friend of Lammers’, led the Cyclones with three hits including a triple.
