On a nice, warm, and sunny Saturday morning, marking the end of the Lyons High School spring break, the Lyons baseball team was short-handed when they took on Lutheran from Parker last weekend. Having five players missing from the lineup due to family vacation plans, the Lions were at a distinct
disadvantage. With only eight players available, rather than forfeit the game, when the ninth batter’s place came up the umpires called an automatic out.
