It was just going to be “one of those days” for the Dansville Mustangs varsity baseball team. On Friday, May 25, they paid a visit to Attica and came up on the short side of a 10-8 score, putting an end to their 2012 season. For the Mustangs it was a day when all the “flares,” “seeing eye singles,” and pure breaks went the Blue Devils’ way. Much like the rest of the season, Dansville battled and battled, and Colin Vogt clubbed a two-run homer in the sixth to keep the game close, and Attica would somehow sneak by the pesky horses to win and move on to meet Wayland-Cohocton on Tuesday, May 29, at Dwyer Stadium in Batavia in the semi-final round of Class B.


The Mustangs had a number of chances, but couldn't get that clutch hit to turn the tables. The red and black left about a dozen men on base in the game.


Dansville (6-10) coach Tom Hober noted, “I give a lot of credit to these kids. They came out here and battled all season long. There were a lot of games that we were down and we came right back. We made it close and threw a scare into a lot of teams this year. Mitch Lamerson pitched well for us today, but we couldn't get that key hit to get us over the hump. I want to thank the players, parents, umpires, coaches, and volunteers for all their time this year for putting their emphasis on these youngsters. That's really what its all about.”
