The Rogers Hornsby Chapter met for the 57th consecutive month in August, "breaking" Joltin' Joe's consecutive game hitting streak.
On Monday, August 8, 21 members and guests enjoyed a tight 8-7 game in Round Rock, Texas, won by the visiting Tacoma Rainiers. The back-and-forth game featured impressive home runs by Carlos Pequero and Johan Limonta of the Rainers and Val Majewski of the Round Rock Express. Rainiers starting pitcher Nate Robertson, who once started a game in the 2006 World Series for the Detroit Tigers, got the win.
