MANSFIELD, OH- Colonel Crawford junior pitcher is having a spectacular season from the circle. The All-Ohioan leads the area with 183 strikeouts this year, boasting a 1.27 ERA in 132 innings of work. For some ill-advised reason, WMFD's "Big" Mike Thompson used this week's Sports Buzz Web Exclusive to issue a challenge to Studer, believing he has the skillset to get a hit off of the Eagles star.

Thompson was originally swayed by Crawford's head coach Chuck Huggins to leave this challenge alone, but Thompson just couldn't help himself. Having just celebrated his 50th birthday, "Big" Mike will have his work cut out for him IF Sydney accepts the challenge that goes as follows; Thompson gets approximately 10 strikes to muster a hit off Studer, which includes any ball struck into fair territory. If Thompson is unable to deliver a hit, he will receive a punishment chosen by Brian Skowronski and must make good on a promised meal at IHOP.
