First Lake Land College baseball game played (April 1, 1969): Although the team lost a close game by the score of 3-2 to the Lynxes of Lincoln, it is important because of the “firsts” it included: the first base hit by a Laker (a single by right fielder Kerry Atwood from Decatur); the first strikeout by a Laker pitcher (Warren Schmidgall from Armington); and the first game coached by eventual hall-of-famer Gene Creek. The team won its second contest of the season 7-6, and finished the season a respectable 15-13.
