BLACKFOOT â€” Sometimes during the long hot American Legion baseball season a team is going to take some lumps and have a performance that was less than stellar.
The Blackfoot Broncos experienced just that in Shelley on Monday when they were swept by their Bingham County rival Russets.
SHELLEY â€” As the Shelley Russets enter the final week and a half of the American Legion season the team finds itself playing its' best baseball of the summer.
Coming into the district doubleheader with the Idaho Falls Bees on Tuesday, the Russets have won their last four games and sit near the top of the district standings at 6-8.
SHELLEY â€” It was a Bingham County battle Monday at Shelley High School as the Shelley and Blackfoot American Legion baseball teams took to the field for their only meeting of the season.
Shelley came into the game having been off for six days, while Blackfoot played in the Jackson Hole Tournament over the Fourth of July weekend before coming home a day early after rain needed the tournament Saturday.
BLACKFOOT â€” It's a good thing that Dr. Dave Stanley doesn't equate a successful hunt with harvesting an animal every time.
Stanley, a local veterinarian who owns Blackfoot Animal Clinic, and his hunting companion spent seven long years trying to bring a wily wapiti home before succeeding in 2012. Stanley recounts their adventures and misadventures in the July/August 2013 edition of "Bugle," the national publication of the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation.
Stanley hunts with a traditional recurve bow. He has tried compound bows, too, but prefers the traditional weapon. His has a 52-pound pull.
