  • Odds and ends

    Max Ferguson yesterday became Mason County’s Christian Laettner.  Max didn’t step on anyone’s chest individually but instead crushed the whole group of fans and players with his two-out home run that propelled the Breds to a 10-8 come-from-behind win over the Royals.  
    Max wasn’t alone in heroics in the last inning but his blast will place him in the Mason County Hall of Infamous.
