Bandits beat Hamel 9 3 behind Cliffstophersons solid 7 with Dane Ekdom finishing the last 2 .  Lots of fellas got hits and stuff.  Scott Davis got on 5 times without a hit.  The baby Callen came for the 1st few innings and stole the show of course.  He entered the game as a pinch hitter in the 3rd for his Dad Rye becoming the youngest ever Bandit to play in a game at 18 mos.  Callen battled deep into the count before finally being hit by a pitch in the right buttocks.  The young Walker took a couple of steps toward the mound before being restrained by his father.  The Dad then reentered the game  to run for his irate and much faster son.  Callen was cheered wildly by the throng of Bandit faithful as he was carried off the field by his proud Mommy.  The moment left not a dry eye in Bandit Stadium and left HOF announcer guy Matt Norris weeping like baby in the press box.  "I'll never forget this moment" sighed Norris,  " I've never felt so alive "   Memorable night at Bandit Stadium.  One of those events that in 20 years hundreds   hundreds? of people will claim to have witnessed
