THE TEAM - Winter 2011

So that was the Winter 2011 season. We finished 8-2. That is our best season ever. We timed our losses just right so that we were left out of the championship game but that's still a season we can all be proud of.

THE TEAM finished the season by sweeping another double-header. It's hard to keep track of double-headers when it comes time to acknowledge everybody in this blog. There were a bunch of double plays including at least one unassisted by Melody. There was a great catch in right by Katina. There was some great fielding to go along with great pitching by Chris. Jenny showed up after the game started, laced on her cleats and hit a single. Peter slid right through his shoes.

Like I said, these things are hard to keep track of.

In the first game THE TEAM batted .529 with 2 Doubles 2 Walks and 2 Strikeouts. That was an 8-5 victory over Softball Ain't a Game.

In the second game THE TEAM batted .524 with 2 Home Runs 6 Doubles 5 Walks and 3 Strikouts. That was a 17-6 win over Fugittaboudit.

For the season THE TEAM batted .529 with 11 Home Runs 27 Doubles 7 Triples 48 Walks and 35 Strikeouts.

Here is what you did:

00 CJ batted .324 with 9 RBIs a double and 7 walks. She has as much hustle as anybody in all of Burbank

3 Lou batted .630 with 15 RBIs 2 Home Runs a double and led THE TEAM with 4 triples. He also did a great job pitching.

4 Jenny lead the ladies with a .571 batting average. She had 3 RBIs a Double and 6 walks

7 Katina batted .500 with 3 RBIs in two games.

10 Melody did not really wear #10. We need to get her a jersey for next season. She did really bat .467 with 4 RBIs and led THE TEAM with 14 walks. That's an OBP of .636
15 Robbin batted .400 with 9 RBIs and 2 Doubles.

18 Rick batted .581 with 11 RBIs 1 Home Run 4 Doubles 2 Triples and 2 walks.

24 Peter batted .714 with 22 RBIs 1 Home Run 4 Doubles 1 Triple and 2 walks

25 Andrew batted .656 with 13 RBIs 6 Doubles and 2 walks

27 Roma batted .080 with 2 RBIs and 9 walks

42 Justin led THE TEAM with a .813 batting average, led THE TEAM with 27 RBIS, led THE TEAM with 7 Home runs. He also hit 6 Doubles and walked 3 times but he never hit a Triple. How lazy.

99 Chris batted .600 with 12 RBIs 2 doubles and three walks on top of delivering another great season pitching.

Great season

The Championship dream for THE TEAM took a giant shot in the teeth after a 12-7 loss to the Eye Catchers. The sun was in our eyes and we batted a season low .345 with a season high 7 strikeouts. Brutal. The dream is not dead however. All we need to do is sweep our doubleheader on Sunday (THE TEAM has already swept a doubleheader this season). Then we need H1 We1 to beat The Eye Catchers 21 to 20 and we will win the tiebreaker. I could explain the tie-breaker but f**k that. You can e-mail if you are curious. Either way...

THE TEAM - Sweet sweet victory

THE TEAM was a little rusty but at least we showed up at the correct field ( well, almost all of us). Here is why we THE TEAM is awesome: We were up early and then in the 4th Rapid Inebriation had a big inning and we were down 11-6. In the bottom of the 4th THE TEAM took it right back to go up 15-11. We were scoring runs so fast the umpire couldn't keep track. (It's true, he asked me how many came across that inning. He had us a 16 runs but I had to tell him we had only 15.) THE TEAM batted .526 with 2 doubles, a triple, 7 walks and ZERO strikeouts. YES! That spells a 15-13 victory and THE TEAM officially has a winning season. Let's award some tacos to Doug and Katina and Lori for helping out when we were short. Together they batted .833 with 5 RBIs and two walks. We couldn't have done it without them. GO THE TEAM!!!
