2011 WSL Playoffs Round One – Recap!

Tue, Aug 23, 2011

Getting Cuddly during the Rain Delay!

Down to the Final Four! Last year it was Reel2Reel, Phantom (Good Co.), RBar and Black Betty, but the only team to make it back into the final four in 2011 is the defending Champs Black Betty! Everyone had a great 2011 season and there were a lot of surprises. Here’s how Round One of the 2011 WSL Playoffs went down! If you missed it you’re a chump!

Rainbow Sprinkles!!

NORTH – 3Kings vs. Good Co
3 Kings and Good Co played a hell of a game and kept it really close until the 9th when the Kings showed off their offense and gained quite a lead on the pink ladies. 3 Kings pulled off the upset and won their first ever playoff game and advanced to meet Spike Hill in the 4:30 slot!! Congrats are in order! Now someone try and top Good Co’s season BBQ.

SOUTH – A/T vs. Soft Spot
AT gave it their all in their first trip back to the playoffs, but the Yeti’s would hear nothing of it. They wanted their yearly shot at the Betties and wouldn’t budge. They sealed it by 7 runs and moved on to game 2. All-Star Daniel broke his shoulder on a slide into 3B, but still stuck in there to play first for his team! He’s the one of the MVP Rookies of the North this year, fo sho!

A/T O.G.'s

Here’s a recap from A/T Manager Gerald: Both teams went blow for blow and the game was tied up 9-9 until A/T stop hitting and Soft Spot kept hitting. But in what has been A/T’s season long custom of never say die, we loaded the bases in the 9th, but it was not meant to be. We were beaten by a team that has been together for many years and many wars and this was our first entrance into the playoffs as the New A/T. Even though we are the original team of WSL, starting way back when it was just a handful of guys/girls playing catch behind the red brick shit house, we were a new unit this year with a new attitude and determination. Vinny and Justin along with myself lead a team filled with fun awesome people who’s real intention was to have a fun time on a Sunday afternoon and enjoy the best softball league in NYC. With that attitude we won more game this season than in the three past seasons combined. We will just build on what we experienced this year and look forward to playing better in 2012.

Da Bums!!

2PM SOUTH – Rbar vs. Mendoza Line

Joe Godsy’s lucky playoff beard came through for the Mendoza Clan and they finally, finally, FINALLY beat the Bums! Right from the get go you could see that this was going to be a low scorer. Mendoza lead 1 – zip in the fourth when Josh Rodriguez hit a two run blast, then Mendoza would tie it up in the bottom half of the inning. Both clubs stayed quiet until the 6th, when Mendoza took a four run lead, but Rbar answered right back with 5 runs in the seventh on seven hits! The Bums, nervous with a one run lead, fell apart in the bottom of the 8th and gave up a crucial hit to ‘Doza, giving the fancy hats a two run lead which they held through the last inning to win it 9-7! The Men of Doza were even allowed to grunt at each other for a couple beers before their women called them home in time for dinner.

2PM NORTH – Reel 2 Reel vs. Turkey’s Nest
Over in the North, Reel 2 Reel takes an unfortunate early exit this year. Without key teammates, Jordisco and Mr. Right Next Door, the Nest cleans house anyways and Turkey’s hurler Zac earns the recap of the week spot:

The HR Champ, and the swing that produced all those bombs!

The Turkeys jumped out to an 8-5 lead in the 4th. R2R tied the game in the 5th at 8-8 with a sun-aided 3 run homer, but then the Nest answered right back with 5 in the bottom of the inning on 4 straight 2-out singles (Andy, Mike, JL, Chris) all followed by a huge clutch 3 run homer by George Taramona, who was 4-4 with 6 rbis (George said it was his best game as a Turkey, I’ll bet you agree) Reel to Reel did not score in the last 4 innings due to terrific defense highlighted by several Kornhauser to Kornhauser plays, great range in the OF and the incredible stretching abilities of giants Andy Breving and Chris Newmayer. The Turkeys added 4 more in the 8th because you can never have too many insurance runs in the playoffs. Everyone in the Turkeys lineup had a hit or an RBI! The Turkeys look forward to playing Spike Hill this weekend, may the best team win!!

I would like to personally give a shout-out here to Mama Kornhauser for baking Victory Cupcakes for everyone that was close enough to gobble them up!! The Nest wins Most Delicious Game of the Week!! And speaking of the Kornhauser Clan, we didn’t have a pic to show you our Home Run Champ last week, but fortunately we’ve gotten one now.

4:30pm SOUTH – Black Betty vs. Soft Spot
With the threat of rain lurking to all of us who remained sober until an unimaginable 4:30, the 1st place teams swaggered in with nerves of steel to play the winners of the 11:30am games. O’Malley set up his bat display rack for what he prayed wouldn’t be the last time, and Black Betty started pumping old hits on their iPod stereo for motivation.

April getting cold from the rain, but staying warm with a beer!

Spike Hill took an early 10 run lead against 3 Kings, and Soft Spot and Betty kept it close as usual when the storm hit! Tension broke under the big tree as we all snuggled up close under any shelter we could find and took a few minutes to share the league love. That was nice… it’s been a while.

Then the storm passed and the competitors all headed back out to the rainy and sloppy fields to find Camarra still planted firmly on 1B. He’s not falling for any of your rainy tricks Yeti’s!! Soft Spot opted for the rally no-shirts over the rally caps and what a game this became!! Black Betty took a nice little lead midway, but Baby-Boy closed in on it by clearing the bases on a late inning triple! Camarra threw out Yeti Zak trying to tag up from third and slid into JB$ at the plate to end the threat. The game was tight the entire way until the last inning. The score was 10-9 Betties. The Betty had a run that the Yeti’s missed somewhere, somehow, and the defending champs walk away with the W once again! OUCH! To advance to the semi-finals. Jody Camarra took a bunch of pictures of this sloppy rain game that you can view here. Enjoy!!

4:30pm NORTH – Spike Hill vs. 3Kings
3 Kings rolled in against Spike Hill after a big win against Good Co earlier in the day. After their huge victory, 3 Kings was feeling pretty confident going up against the North Regular Season Champs and top offensive club in the league. But, Spike Hill dominated the Kings with a big win to send a shudder through the league. They scored 10 runs in the first three innings, Matt Silverman had 2 – 3 run HR’s and the defense held it down for a crazy solid victory. Matty No Times and crew deserve props for winning their first play-off match up ever in the earlier game, though, and making a name for themselves this year in the WSL!

3Kings get ready for their game!

So, it’s Spike Hill vs Turkey’s Nest for the North Division Title, and Black Betty vs Mendoza for the South.

This Sunday will determine our division titles as well as crown the champs! Let’s all pray for sun!!
