5 Things You Need to Know Today — Oct. 12, 2012

Here's what's going on today in Plymouth and Canton.

Trivia: In keeping with the baseball theme this week — Before Detroit Tigers pitcher Justin Verlander accomplished the feat last night, when was the last time a pitcher threw a complete-game shutout in the MLB postseason?

Yesterday's trivia answer: Art Howe managed the Oakland Athletics during the era of the team depicted in the film "Moneyball."

5. 'From the Shadows: The Villains Take the Stage'

Join the Spotlight Players 8 p.m. at the Village Theater at Cherry Hill for an evening of wicked fun as the villains of musical theater, film, and jazz step into the spotlight. The show includes the villains of Sweeney Todd and Chicago to Gilbert and Sullivan, and is rated PG-13. Tickets are $13. 

4. Heather Nicole Hill Scholarship Fundraiser

The family and friends of Heather Nicole Hill, a 20-year-old Canton resident who died August in Belleville Lake, want to establish a scholarship in her memory.  The fundraiser for the scholarship is 8 p.m. at Plaza Lanes, 42001 Ann Arbor Road, and tickets are $22. The organizers are looking for donations of any kind such as gift certificates, candles, lotions, or any other new items to add to gift baskets for raffles.

3. Great Lakes Regional Chili Cookoff is Sunday

The Great Lakes Regional Chili Cookoff is 11 a.m.-5 p.m. Sunday in Kellogg Park in downtown Plymouth. Stop by to sample some chili and catch a glimpse of plenty of motorcycles. Awards are announced at 5 p.m. — we'll see if Plymouth-Canton Patch reader Tom Pardikes takes home top prize for his acclaimed chili! 

2. Scarecrows in Kellogg Park

Twenty-nine scarecrows are up in Kellogg Park.  Groups, businesses and families build and decorate a scarecrow in Kellogg Park to be on display through Halloween. Take a walk down Main Street to see them and look for our very own Patch scarecrow!

1. Show your P-CEP school spirit

Plymouth beat Canton on Friday night, but don't let that be the lone factor in deciding bragging rights! We're running a photo competition to show school spirit between Plymouth, Canton and Salem that will run through Canton-Salem's Oct. 19 game. Upload photos showing school spirit for bragging rights!

This was tough for a non-baseball guy like me but, I think the answer is: The last pitcher to pitch a shutout in a postseason game, since Verlander, was Chris Carpenter of the St. Louis Cardinals, in the 2011 season?
