Last night’s Yuma Scorpions / Lake County Fielders (independent; North American League) game was an odd one: position players were sent to the pitchers mound and pitchers played in the field.
Not quite sure how this plays into the integrity of the league, as Yuma won 8-3, with it being apparent NAL pitchers hit better than NAL position players pitch, except for Jose Canseco. He got the win for the Scorpions, as he went six innings, giving up five hits and one run while striking out three.
