DAGUS MINES â€“Â The Fox Township Post 511 American Legion baseball team gave the undefeated Wilcox squad a run for their money early on in Monday evening's match-up in Fox Township, but Wilcox's bats finally came alive late in the game and the team used good defense to hand Fox a 10-2 loss to end their regular season.
Wilcox manager Jeff Peterson indicated that Fox's slower pitching initially threw off his batters, remarking that they need "to adjust a lot faster" than they did.
