Not all dugout lineup cards are created equally. There are some beautiful ones, and then there are some on the other end of the spectrum. I’m careful not to call them ugly, because every lineup card has some amount of beauty to it. Some are just less aesthetically pleasing than others.
Take, for example, the dugout lineup card Sean and I got at the Wagner @ Central Connecticut State baseball game on Saturday. The card itself is about as plain Jane as you can get.
The card is generic and appears to have been photo-copied. It even includes a copyright date of 1995 in the lower left-hand corner.
The game itself was fantastic, particularly if you were there rooting for CCSU. On Senior Day, Blue Devil senior Matt Martinez launched a 12th inning, two-run walk-off home run to lead CCSU to a 6-4 win over the Seahawks. Additionally, CCSU senior Casey Brown pitched all 12 innings, throwing 142 pitches.
So as plain as the lineup card is, it was great of the CCSU coaches to give it to us. It is our first lineup card from a Northeast Conference (NEC) game.
Sean asked Wagner for their dugout lineup card, which looked nice from afar, but a coach told him that they keep their lineup cards.
