'Bucky' remembered with memorial at ballpark To the editor: On Sunday, June 30, a memorial service was held at the Sharpsburg ballpark for our beloved “Bucky,” the Sharpsburg-area deer who died so tragically, with 83 people attending. A monument was put in place honoring “Bucky” and 30 trees were planted along a dangerous fence row. The ballpark was one of the places that “Bucky” visited quite often to see the kids and enjoy the treats that were offered.

For Pat Taylor, Wednesday was a good night to get wet. The Conococheague Little League manager was doused with a bucket of ice water after his club secured the league's third Maryland District 1 11-12 baseball championship in five years - and fifth overall - with a 10-5 win over Sharpsburg. Maddux Grove delivered the key blow with a grand slam in the second for a 6-2 lead, and Conococheague never looked back. “That grand slam was enormous and it came from a kid we don't expect to hit grand slams,” Taylor said.

If the Sharpsburg Little League All-Stars are looking for a nickname for Tuesday night's starting pitcher, Ben Burgan, “Houdini” would be appropriate. Conococheague had at least one runner on base in each inning, but Burgan - with the assistance of some sterling defensive plays - managed to minimize the damage and spark Sharpsburg to a 6-5 victory in the championship round of the Maryland District 1 11-12 Little League Baseball tournament. The same teams face off again tonight at 6 in Sharpsburg with the winner claiming the District 1 title.

Rodney Burgan knew if his club could start hitting the ball with authority, they'd be just fine. And the Sharpsburg Little League All-Stars proved their manager right, pounding out seven hits in a 10-run third inning on their way to a 14-6 win over Federal in the Maryland District 1 11-12 losers' bracket final Monday night. The win propels Sharpsburg to Tuesday's championship-round game at 6 p.m. at Conococheague. “Our hits came tonight,” said Burgan. “I've been telling them this entire tournament that if we hit the ball, we'll win some games.” T.J. Kalagher and Ben Burgan got the big inning started with back-to-back solo home runs - two of three homers in the inning - erasing a 4-2 Federal lead.

Hello, Hancock. The Conococheague 11-12 All-Stars are giving you a shoutout this morning. That's because they realize they may not be where they are at if it weren't for the time they spent playing up on the Pennsylvania border. Alonzo Coleman hit a two-run home run in the bottom of the fifth inning on Friday to start a three-run rally that helped Conococheague come from behind for an 8-6 victory over Sharpsburg in the Maryland District 1 winners' bracket final. Conococheague blew a 5-0 lead and fell behind 6-5 in the top of the fifth.
