NEW CARLISLE - The New Carlisle Newts recognized the ORWBL career of Matt Serge on Sunday afternoon.
The South Bend icon, and former Newt, announced his retirement effective at the end of the season. Garrett Curless of the Newts presented Serge with a number three tile from the famous hand-operated Migley Field scoreboard.
Serge won two of his four ORWBL Champions with the Newts. His arm carried New Carlisle during both postseason runs. In 2014, he won his second Cy Young Award.
While Serge has declared the end of his ORWBL career, it appears his playing days are not completely over. He remains a lineup staple of Speedy's Chickenheads, a flagship team of The Wiffleball Championship. Serge and Speedy's are expected to make their record 10th tournament appearance this month.
