Week 3- Recap

Wed, Apr 24, 2013


Wow, what a weekend of really great softball and not so shitty weather! Every time slot had great battles and a saucy audience. We had comebacks, a walk-off, nail biters…five games decided by three runs or less and of course the always-exciting, O’Malley-pleasing Spike Hill rout. Before we get to the recaps, we just want to thank our WSL grounds-keeping crew, starring the very manly Mike V, the Saturday League Commish James “The Captain” Toolan and his crew (Denis Bramley and Mike “The Stash” Mcnelis), for their tireless work on the fields this weekend. These two crews made the fields flatter than most of Cesar jokes. The infielders will have to finally stop blaming all those errors on “McCarren hops”. Great job and thank you.  Now to the games…

11 AM

Cashmere Pride

Field#1: TNT vs. Soft Spot (Shortz)

Looks like the Teacher’s are in need of some teamwork tutoring after their epic loss against the Yetis. (Come on, Teachers- I wrote you a Haiku with my bare hands!) They must’ve been distracted grading thesis papers, because they were less focused than Sister Mary Clarence’s music class in Sister Act 2, Back in the Habit. After the game, Haz sent his teachers off to detention where they had to write on the chalkboard: “i will not lose games by double digits. i will not lose games by double digits. i will not lose games by double digits. i will not lose games by double digits. i will not lose games by double digits.

The one saving grace of the Teachers’ performance was in TNT rookie Carrie Doria, who went 4-4 and even played through an injury when she got severely pummeled on the ass diving back to first base. But it was too little, too late since the Yetis had already unleashed their secret weapon Winston, and his signature move of pretending to be asleep while snagging line drives at second and masterminding a double play. April’s calf workouts and rotation work (gratuitous Camarra Fitness plug) have also been paying off as she went 2-2.  In other IMPORTANT game news- Jason Dietz was spotted sporting a really soft sweater with a USA design for the game.  ( Soft Spot: 18 / TNT: 8 )

Field #2: Pete’s vs. Black Betty (GBlack)

Victory tastes like chocolate!

This game did not disappoint. With the Betty looking for their first W, they faced a very tough and determined Pete’s squad. Sam must have injected his players with Adderall-flavored swizzle sticks before this one, because they were awake and swinging some sweet bats vs. JB$, one of the league’s premier pitchers. As they battled each other for a full nine innings, the focal points in this game were stellar defense and timely hitting. The Champs were missing some key players, but it did not seem to faze them much as they matched The Candy Store run for run. The dramatic 9th inning was set. Orange Candy Eaters and BB were still tied when Pete’s opened it up, scoring three in the top half and Betty came roaring back with two runs before the men and ladies in orange were able to put out the fire! Pete’s is 1-1 while The Champs start the season winless.  Perhaps Orange is the new Black!
( Pete’s: 11 / Black Betty: 10 )

Field #1: Turkey’s Nest vs. AT Allstars (GBlack)


On Field #1, the Turkey’s Nest visited The Allstars in one the day’s best match-ups. The Nesters got out to a fast start. Leading the way was Schafer, who crushed a massive three-run bomb in the 2nd inning. TN plated 12 runs by the 2nd inning with AT scraping out just two. AT pitcher, Jimmy “Two Strikes” Kanter, making his season debut, got his veteran legs under him and settled into a nice groove, holding the The Nest scoreless over the next 4 innings. With the Rally Tequila coaching 3rd base again, AT clawed their way back into the game. With the feeling of adrenalin (and liquor) in their veins and the On-Base Percentage monster named Mickey “Smiles” Rosegrady, the Allstars eventually took the lead in the 7th by one run. Crushing his own three-run jack in the 8th, Justin “The Stick” Moench sealed the hard fought comeback victory.
AT has the league’s best offense early on and is now 2-0 in the division. The Turkey’s nest drop to a surprising 0-2.

Quote of the Game:
Ump Kevin: “That pitch was flat.”
Vinny (via bullhorn): “Your head is flat, ya bastard…..

Side note: Jordan, fearing the loss of his red face fuzz, skipped the game and tried to distract Gerald by texting pictures of naked women all game long.

(Turkey’s Nest: 13 / AT Allstars: 16 )

Field #2: Good Co vs. Loggers (Shortz)

The LOVER’S BATTLE commenced at 1pm with the highest of stakes, such as “who wears the pants in the relationship” (Jen) and “which last names to take” (Hughes). Ten’s team may have lost the war on Sunday, but she most certainly won the battle of lovers.

Game highlights for Mr. Mike Hughes include:

  • – Applauding Jen’s home run out in left center instead of backing up Wally, whose failed-diving-non-catch was described as “looking like a drunk version of an old GI Joe action figure with new untested legs and missing arms that had been ripped off by the angry chubby kid from down the street.”
  • – Getting thrown out at 1st base by the hand of his Shortstop-playing GF as her family bore witness.
  • – Being photographed by the incomparable Erik Pendzich grabbing Jen 10’s butt during the friendly end-of-game hand slapping

Caught pink handed

Rob made a fantastic diving catch at 1st base. However, no one saw it since all were distracted by the motorcycle gang that was driving by, their leader standing on top his bike posing like Jesus. Never a dull moment in the Burg. As for the remainder of the recap, we had a couple of “Billy Shakespeares” from both teams, so I will let these dueling authors bring the recap home.

Mike Saris (Loggers): “Good Co. came out strong offensively taking a large lead right from the start. We came back and rallied with home runs by Tony, Jen10, and Al with two.”

Rich “Pancake” Sullivan (Good Co.): “The Loggers hit about 43 “Home Runs” to the short porch in right field. We call it a short porch because Cesar plays there and can often be found drinking a 40 and yelling obscenities at neighborhood kids. That, and it’s about 7.5 feet beyond first base. Thanks a lot Sandy/NYC Parks/Bin Laden.”

Mike Saris (Loggers): “Forgetting we play 9 inning games, the Good Co. shortstop walked off the field when Al’s home run put us ahead in the bottom of the 7th.”

Rich “Pancake” Sullivan (Good Co.): “Then we came back and won anyway in typical Fashion fashion. 2-0 so far. #joelsuckmybaaaaaalllls

(Good Co: 10 / Loggers: 9 )


Field #1: Brooklyn Bowl vs. Reel to Reel (Shortz)

Unlike most teams that think they can dig themselves out of late-game despair, the Reel 2 Reel bench was certain we’d be 0-2 come sundown. But the pessimism worked in our favor, or more factually, Mike Hogan bailed our team out by hitting a 3-run blast to win the game in a walk-off.

The Bowlers have indicated that they’d prefer to block out the bad, so unfortunately I have no specific highlights from their dugout, but I will say they were all pleasant and well-mannered throughout the game. Would’ve been a lot cooler though, if they came with Blue Ribbon grub courtesy of their sponsor (it does NOT hurt to ask, guys).

Aside from Hogan’s heroics, PeteMo also had a critical 9th inning hit to keep the Reelers alive. Babkow was fielding like a boss until his untimely finger injury took him out of the game (get better, Babs), and Andrew’s diving catches at 1st were awe inspiring (not just saying that because he’s my husband…he also bought me a beer)

( Reel to Reel: 10 / Brooklyn Bowl: 9 )

Field #2: Gibson vs. 2nd Chance (GBlack)

Mr. Kathyrn Irby

A hitting parade rained down on Field #2, as the Saloon came out of the box hot. They scored seven runs in the 1st inning only to see the Gibson come back the following inning with three. The back and forth continued throughout the game.  Self-proclaimed Star of the Game, Andre “Gay Dre'” de Parma, went 2-4 with a walk , and a monster home run that was blasted through the legs of the 2B and the scorching shot kept on sizzling pass the legs of the RCF’er. The game ended on a wild call in the top of the 9th. With one out, the Saloon’s SS Mike Mara fielded a grounder and went to turn the double play, but was mauled by the Gibson runner to break up his the throw to 1st. As a result of the runner not giving himself up, a double play was called by Ump Merhaut, thus ending the game.  The 86’ers outlasted the Gibby to get into the win column.

Some note worthy news on the Saloon side: According to Manager “Future Mr. Kathryn Irby“, John “Soda” Reis had a highly adventurous day defensively and on the base paths. We are sure his performance had nothing to do with Saturday’s date being 4/20…

(Gibson: 16 / 2nd Chance: 20 )


Field #1: Spike Hill vs. Clemerica (Shortz)

A conglomerate gang comprised of members from R2R, AT and the Yetis, dubbed the “Elite Eight Assholes” (EEA for short), convened on Field 1 to hang on the fence and watch the 5pm match up. Showcasing varying degrees of slightly buzzed to heavily intoxicated, they added some much needed “pep” to the late game, by doing the wave, passing around the bullhorn, and projecting an array of cat-calls, booing and guffaws.

What a swell Sunday!

In Clemerica performance news, Markow was outstanding as usual (he could probably play every position in the infield without skipping a beat). Craig crushed the ball in the bottom of the 9th as did Jesse, though the fence markings only declared it a double, much to the chagrin and belligerence of the EEA.

Even with Matt Silverman’s rundown with an “injured groin”, the mighty Spike Hillians predictably emerged victorious. But the real winner was 3rd baseman’s Bobby’s “Chipper Jones” Maxwell’s Carol Brady hairdo. Blond and flowing effortlessly in the breeze, it really was a sight to behold.

( Spike Hill: 21 / Clemerica: 7 )

Field #2: 3 Kings vs. Rbar (GBlack)

The fast starts kept on coming for the home teams on Field #2, as Rbar also came flying out of the chute. In the 1st, The Bums’ Josh opened up the festivities with a towering 2-run homer over the right field fence. Jason Merhaut would also add a solo shot (his first of the season) in the 3rd, helping Rbar to a 10-2 lead. 3K’s inability to bring runners home (11 runners left on base!!!) was catching up with them, but behind a flawless play by their SS, Francesca Romano and their “never say die” attitude, they climbed back into this one. In the 9th, Rbar recorded the first out of the inning only to see the Crowned Ones rally with six runs. With Mike McNelis’s mustache curling with excitement in anticipation of their 1st win, victory was literally snatched away from them when Bum Pete Fanuele ran down a long fly ball in right center to seal the game. 3 Kings is getting a rough welcome from the South while Rbar starts the season with a strong 2-0 record. ( Rbar: 11 / 3 Kings: 9 )

Player of the Week:  Tommy  “The Big L” Santoro had 2 home runs and 5 rbi’s!

AND the winner of the Home Run Guessing Contest for this game is…
