2011 Mustangs Season Highlights: Kris Koerper   1 comment

2011 Mustangs Kris Koerper Season HighlightsHere is the first of a few “Season Highlights” cards I made for the 2011 Mustangs season. This one if for Kris Koerper who was serenaded on his birthday with the crowd singing to him led by Mustangs general manager Rick Muntean. Koerper responded by hitting an absolute bomb to left center field for a 3-run homer. It may not have been a big moment for the team and their playoff chances but it was one of those cool moments that I will certainly remember from 2011 at Phil Welch Stadium. If you are keeping track this makes 3 cards of Koerper in my 2011 set.

The Mustangs have won their first game of the NBC World Series in Wichita. They defeated the Plaza Tire Capahas 7-3 behind Jayson Huett’s strong start. Jordan Guida drove in 2 runs as the Mustangs jumped out to a 7-0 lead early. They play again on Wednesday at 5pm with Adam Maddox making his first start since his no-hitter.

    This is awesome! Thank you so much for the three cards this season and your fantastic write ups! I remember Kris was sincerely touched by the Coach leading his team in singing Happy Birthday on the baseball field during a game this year. He is far from home with his lovely wife and they certainly made him feel welcomed in his new town. St. Joes is the BEST! I am also indebted to the Wonderful Host Family who has been so gracious in taking such good care of my daughter and her husband this season.
