In a game heard on our sister station 951 The Bull, the Charles City Comet baseball team was in New Hampton taking on the Chickasaws.  The game got out of hand quickly as New Hampton pounded out hits from the get-go and didn’t let up until after the game was called after four innings and New Hampton had won 23-0.  The Comets did not register a hit in the contest and their defense aided the Chickasaws with five errors.  Charles City baseball will quickly put this game behind them as they look forward to their next game which will be tomorrow night at Oelwein.  The Comet baseball team is 6-5 overall and 4-3 in Northeast Iowa Conference play.
