Eagles split two with Braves
Gusting winds produced two very different baseball games as New York Mills split a doubleheader with conference foe Menahga falling 3-1 in the opener and taking the nightcap 11-5.
Tanner Wegscheid took a one-strike pitch over the left field fence for a grand slam not even 35 mph gusts could knock down. The ball dropped just behind the fence 320 feet from home plate.
"Tanner does a great job as a lead-off hitter," Coach Chris Bushinger said.
