Something’s a Bruin in Virginia

The Broadway Bruins escaped the cellar of the Rockingham County Baseball League standings in recent years erasing the futility with a remarkable crew to create history by claiming their first regular season pennant since 1931 this summer and are now on the cusp of obtaining the championship in a deja vu semifinal battle against the Bridgewater Reds pitting two former East Hardy teammates against each other which started at James Madison University’s Eagle Field on Saturday night with the Bruins pacing around the bases for a 7-1 victory in the best of five series.

Broadway Bruins second baseman Bryce Strawderman (Ohio Valley University) and Bridgewater Reds second baseman Brett Tharp (Bridgewater College) were high school teammates for the Cougars and now face off as league opponents in the playoffs.

“It is something else after having played with each other for years,” Bridgewater Reds 2B Brett Tharp commented.

“We’d rather have them in the championship, but we didn’t get lucky.”
