Big boomers ready for Fourth of July
June 30, 1993

   The citizens of Oconomowoc are notified that the Fourth of July fireworks have been rescheduled - they will take place in the afternoon at Roosevelt Field July 4-5 as the red-hot Oconomowoc Five O's take on Land O'Lakes Western Division leaders Lannon and Menomonee Falls.
   After the smoke clears from the field, the O's will know if they have what it takes to be participants in September's Grand Championship playoffs.
   Oconomowoc is currently 6-3 overall.
   But after the first two games of the season, a 20-7 pounding Pewaukee and a 13-7 sacking by Sussex, it seemed improbable the O's would be able to talk title this weekend.
   The turnaround has been helped, however, by solid defense and an offense that is averaging 11 runs a game.
   The O's are receiving steady play from player/manager Jason Brown, who is batting .400, and also from a group of steady veteran players.
   Steve Rhoads, Steve Smith, Jeff Ranta, and Kevin Brown are each currently batting over .300.
   Former LOL player John Anderson has returned to Oconomowoc and is batting .375 while Neil Dussault has solidified the center field defense and is batting .538.
   Dussault, who sat out a red-shirt season at UW-Whitewater this season, is part of Oconomowoc's "Collegiate Cavalry," who have ridden into town with reinforcements.
   Ron Meunier took over the lead-off spot and has seven stolen bases while Mike Michalsky is batting .524 and leading the league in several offensive categories.
   Greg Hackbart, who is scheduled to be the starting pitcher against Lannon, has been the ace of the staff with a 2.80 ERA. Hackbart has also received considerable throwing support from Chad Brown and Kevin Brown.
   With 10 players currently batting over .300, the O's have a balanced attack.
   In addition, Jason Brown has fulfilled his pre-season promise to run aggressively as "Brownie Ball" has produced 24 steals in the last seven games.
   This weekend, the O's will look to run away to first place and position itself to win it's first division crown since 1986.
