The Friday, June 21, 2013 Mallards vs Lakeshore Chinooks 'Game Promo' Giveaway was Bobblehead 'Farmer Maynard'.
The day was Agriculture Appreciation Night with a Bobblehead 'Farmer' Maynard giveaway sponsored by Pepsi; as well as hosting of a Petting Zoo and Hayrides Courtesy of Play Madison Parks. Also sponsoring this night was the UW Pediatric Emergency Care and Three Gaits Community Connection.
Mike Hollenbeck (Illinois State University) let a potent late inning offensive attack with four hits including a home run and a double as the Lakeshore Chinooks pounded the Madison Mallards in a rain shortened 11-3 win in eight innings Friday evening from Warner Park.
The offense exploded in the eighth inning as Lakeshore sent 11 men to the plate in a seven run outburst. Chris Manning (Valparaiso University), Sawyer Polen (Kent State University) and Brant Valach picked up three RBI hits with only one out on the scoreboard. The inning was punctuated on a grand slam home run from newcomer John Norwood that give the Chinooks an eight run lead.
Hollenbeck’s for hit night earned him the Northwoods League "Player of the Night" honor. He became the second Chinook player in the last week to receive that award. Chris Manning did so in a game against Green Bay on Tuesday.
The game was delayed and eventually called in the top of the ninth inning due to rain.
The Madison Mallards are part of the 16-team Northwoods League. The Northwoods League has more teams, plays more games, and draws more fans than any other Summer Collegiate League in North America.
