99 Problems But a Pitch Ain’t One
Our regular season has ended on Sunday afternoons, but not before a number of teams made their final push for a playoff spot. Some teams got the breaks they needed, and others fell just short. Most importantly, the social atmosphere remained positive, and the drinks kept flowing, regardless of the final score.
Our first game of the day between Smoking Bases and Ain’t Nobody Got Time for That was an impressive show on both sides of the ball. Despite two stingy defenses, both teams were at times able to find openings, but Ain’t Nobody Got Time For That came out with the win with a 6-5 victory. The next great game was a batting fiesta between Pitch You Be Trippin’ and The Swingers. Both teams excelled at smashing the ball they and there were frequent lead . But after four innings, Pitch you Be Trippin’ took the victory with a 10-9 victory. Another great game was between Smack My Pitch UP and 99 Problems as it was another batting clinic as well. This match-up, which resembled a home run derby, saw almost every player reach base twice, but 99 Problems did not have a problem coming up with the W with a 10-9 victory.
It’s playoffs time and many teams are ready to hunt for the championship and its anyone’s game. Thank you to all of great teams, and best of luck in the playoffs!
