Short porch makes for Green Devils to go long

NASHUA — Admittedly, the temporary site for the Nashua-Plainfield softball team had the Osage softball team’s clean-up hitter Aubrey Chapman salivating.

The shortstop for the Green Devils hit two of the three home runs they tallied against the Huskies, including a first inning two-run shot and another during a huge 12-run sixth inning that put this 17-1 Top of Iowa East Conference game away early.

“I was really loving it, actually,” Chapman said of the temporary fencing that looked to be shy of regulation. “(Coach) Nick (Hemann) told me before the game he wanted to see some out, and we did it.

“It didn’t really affect my mindset, really. I’d just say I hit the ball like I usually do. Short fence, long fence, hitting the ball the same way.”
