LINCOLN – After watching Bay View’s Shannon McArthur bloop a shot that hugged the left-field foul line, Lincoln High head coach Dick Ryan got up from his dugout perch and asked the home plate umpire to grant him time.

If the hitter that was next in line to face Mayer was fortunate enough to blast one out of Sullivan Field, the Lions would remain ahead by one run.
