THE TEAM - Fall 2011

Wasn't that fun!!! The championship proved slippery but THE TEAM took second place in the first round and second place in the second round with an overall record of 7 and 3.

That last game was a good one. The only time Smash has beat THE TEAM it involved an umpire who was too busy explaining rules rather doing arithmatic. Not this time. Amy went 2 for 4 with a triple and 2 RBIs. Lou went 5 for 5 with a Home Run and 4 RBIs. Chris went 4 for 4 with 4RBIs. Peter went 4 for 5 with 4 RBIs. Smash never stood a chance. Overall THE TEAM batted .610 with 1 Home Run, 6 Doubles, 1 Triple, 2 Walks and ZERO strikouts. Sweet sweet victory, we meet again. We've missed you so.

Here is how you did this season:

2 Katie played in 4 games. She batted .556 with 4RBIs and two triples. She also showed a serious arm in the outfield

3 Lou played in 9 games. He batted .882 to lead THE TEAM. He hit at least one Home Run in every game for a total of 12 which also led THE TEAM. He had 24 RBIs, 7 Doubles, 2 Triples and a walk. He pitched. He made jokes. Crazy!!!

4 Jenny batted for two in 6 games and finished the season at .313 with 4 RBIs, 3 walks and on OBP of .421. Jenny started THE TEAM back in the Winter of 2008. Now she is leaving. Her versatility is a huge loss for THE TEAM. So is her sweater

8 Jad improved every week in her 8 games at first base. She batted .360 with 3 RBIs, 3 walks and an OBP of .429. She also brought contagious energy to THE TEAM and you can't have enough of that.

10 Melody lead off for the women by batting .462 with a .563 OBP in 8 games. She had 6 RBIs, 2 Doubles and 6 walks. She did a great job and second base and was a great base runner. She also kept her language clean

15 Dora batted .467 with 7 RBIs and a double in 9 games. Dora never struck out which is awesome.

16 Beth played in 5 games. She batted .333 with an RBI and a walk. She also had the sweetest footwear on THE TEAM.

17 Amy was unbridled athleticsm for 9 games where she batted .444 with an OBP of .531. She had 6 RBIs, 2 Doubles, 1 Triple and 5 walks. She also had boundless energy and seemed to be having more fun than anybody else on THE TEAM.

18 Rick batted .636 with 8 RBIs in 7 games and tried to pay attention the whole time

19 Doug flew around the outfield for 9 games and batted .519 with 10 RBIs 2 Doubles and a walk. He led THE TEAM in rolling around in the grass.

24 Peter torched it up in 9 games. He had 23 consecutive hits and finished the season batting .879. He had 8 Home Runs, 6 Doubles, 1 Triple and 2 walks. He led THE TEAM with 31 RBIs and was an outstanding infielder.

25 Andrew played in 5 games. They were a powerful five games with a .786 average, 13 RBIs, 2 Home Runs, 2 Triples and 2 walks.

38 Michelle is actually on THE TEAM. Did you know that? She played in zero games and batted zero with zero RBIs. She had zero strikeouts so she can build on that when she comes back next season.

99 Chris played in 8 games. He batted .708 with 8 RBIs, 3 Doubles and 3 walks. All 17 of his hits were pure line drives. He did a great job pitching and was out of this world fielding from the pitchers spot.

There has to be a tip of the hat to 27 Randy for coaching third base for THE TEAM and playing when he was needed.

There has to be a tip of the hat to Gavin for taking all those fantastic pictures. It's nice to have our season documented by someone that talented.

Everone did a great job. Everyone playing hard and had fun. Best of all everybody supported each other and stayed positive which is why you would join a team at all.

Great Season

What a great season! Next season.... I predict CHAMPIONSHIP! You can ask Lou... my predictions are pretty good :), Happy Holidays!

Lou said...

I especially liked the win because, it was a come from behind win, all the men on their team play on four different teams (who has time to play on four softball teams?), and we beat a team that is going to the playoffs...if only there was a wild card in Burbank Co Ed Naked Softball...

Rick said...

Those clowns are not going to the playoffs. They finished the second round with a record of 3 and 2. They placed behind THE TEAM because we swept them this season. Also let's not forget the way that last guy didn't even move after he grounded out to Melody for the last out.

Lou said...

Then that first base woman LIED to me! She said that was going to be their first trip to the playoffs. I'm glad Doug E. Fresh plowed into her! And so is Doug (insert porno music....)
