EDON – On April 15, the Edon Bombers became the latest team to discover that the Fayette Eagles are nobody’s pushover. Going into the bottom of the fourth inning, the Eagles were holding a 6-3 lead on the hometown boys before the old nemesis of Fayette came to the fore and changed the game…errors. A team with experience and skill, the Boys on Bomber Blue took advantage of every Fayette mistake, rattling off 13 unanswered runs in what became a 16-6, six-inning BBC win.
