Thanks...for some reason I thought it was the Flag Pole...all I remember was the very loud crack of the bat, the rifle shot out, and the above mentioned resounding hit off the pole.
I remember a former player once saying that if it hadn't hit the pole he swore it would have landed on I-70. (He was using hyperbole but you get the drift)
