Summer 2015

THE TEAM wrapped up the summer season by beating Pitches Be Crazy in a tie breaker.  They had two Home Runs for a total of 8 bases.  THE TEAM came up and did some stuff and then everybody on Pitches Be Crazy went...  Crazy.  It was all so tense and weird that it was probably 3am before it all made sense.  Peter gets a hit so that was one base.  Kelly draw a walk so she gets one base and moves the runner over for a total of three bases.  Lou comes up and drives in Victor (who was running for Peter), Kelly slides into to third and Lou stops at second.  Kelly was called safe at third and then it was like some mad dash with everybody running around and looking for a call.  From there we went to the video review from New York and then some people were using phrases like "bullshit" and Blue says "Ball Game!" and some more people throw the ball and say "bullshit" some more.

What's the problem?

The first batter( Peter/Victor) came all the way around for 4 bases.  Kelly was safe at third so she had three bases giving THE TEAM 7.  Lou goes to second for two more giving THE TEAM 9 total and the win.

Damn right Ball Game!

Actually it was kind of a mess but a win is a win so THE TEAM finished 6-4.

Here is what you did:

3 Lou does it again.  He played in all 10 games and led THE TEAM hitting.839.  He also led THE TEAM with 7 Home Runs and 9 Doubles.  He had 20 RBIs, 1 Triple and 6 Walks.  Where would we be without him.

5 Kelly played in 9 games.  She led the ladies hitting .640.  She had 8 RBIs, never struck out and was the most versatile infielder on THE TEAM.

7 Natasha played in 7 games.  She hit .391 with an OBP of .440.  She had 10 RBIs and your darn tootin' she hit a HOME RUN!  She was also a lights out pitcher.

8 Aerial played in 7 games.  She hit .636 and led the ladies with 12 RBIs and 3 Doubles.  She has also developed into a dangerous outfielder.

10 Natalia played in 4 games.  She hit .500 with a Double and 4 RBIs.  She led THE TEAM in having an awesome leg kick when she was hitting.

18 Rick 10 games .586 10 RBIs 1 Double 1 Triple

22 Dave played in 9 games.  He hit .556 with 10 RBIs.  He had 3 Doubles, 2 Triples and one jolly Home Run.  He was the other lights out pitcher for THE TEAM

23 Melody played in 8 games.  She hit .412 but led THE TEAM with 9 walks giving her an OBP of .615.  She also had 7 RBIs and a Triple.  She can play in the infield and she can play the outfield.  Adrian Gonzalez can't do that.  Maybe he is wearing her number.

24 Peter did the spectacular thing that Peter has been doing for 20 seasons. He played in 10 games hitting .806 and led THE TEAM with 22 RBIs.  He had 3 Doubles, 2 Triples and 2 Home Runs.  There was also lots of great catches that even had the other teams cheering for him.

25 Dora played in 10 games.  She smacked the ball down the third base line 12 times for a .480 average.  She also had a Double and 11 RBIs.  The new rules at home plate are great for keeping runners safe from Dora destroying them for trying to score.

27 Victor was a roller coaster for 9 games.  He finished with a .423 average but he had 5 Doubles, 2 Home Runs (both Grand Slams) and 20 RBIs.  Twenty RBIs on 11 hits is crazy...  just like Victor.  

Roxy played in 8 games.  She hit .478 with 8 RBIs.  She also had a Double and a Home Run.  She is leaving THE TEAM and that sucks.  You can't just go get another player like Roxy.

19 Doug played in 8 games.  He hit .737 with 12 RBIs and 5 Doubles and locked it down in left field. Doug is also leaving THE TEAM after 108 games.  That's a lot of softball.  As a matter of fact that's 197 for 312 for a .631 average.  Throw in those pitches that bored him into 47 walks and you have and OBP of .680.  Let's not forget the 151 RBIs, 50 Doubles, 8 Triples and 6 Home Runs.  Yes that is a lot of softball.  Doug will be missed.  Punch a shark in the face for THE TEAM

  • Mike Hessman set the record for most AAA Home Runs.  Sure that's great and all but he did it wearing an awesome hat!

      Game 9 - Your Mileage May Vary

      THE TEAM took that Swiss Cheese Defense and added some Limburger Cheese Offense.  Phew!

      THE TEAM hit a season low .433.  Thirteen players played and only seven had hits.

      Limburger Cheese indeed.

      There is one game left so even if the playoffs are only possible if 144 things fall into place, a wining season is still within reach.

      GO THE TEAM!!!
