Week 11- Recap

Tue, Jun 18, 2013

Well Gee Willickers WSL, what a kick we all had this Sunday Funday. We had some super duper blowouts and some frowny faced upsets, causing a few teams to flip their lids and i may have even heard a cuss word- Fiddlesticks! All the guys and gals sure were tuckered out, but still managed to have a swell time sipping soda pops and jitterbugging all over the fields. You see, folks, we thought we’d try writing in a super wholesome way to better represent our audience…not.

11AM

Field# 1: Turkey’s Teachers vs. Clemerica

We knew this would be a blood fest, but this ended up being the most runs scored by the Battleship this season. It seems that Haz has gone into hiding, so once more I yield to the protagonist of this match-up, Clems pitcher and WSL guest correspondent, Stryker.

ALL WAS QUIET EARLY SUNDAY AT MCCARREN PARK EXCEPT FOR THAT STUPID CRUDDY BASEBALL GAME OVER ON FIELD 2!! I WENT WITH THE EVERYTHING BAGEL THIS WEEK AT URBAN RUSTIC AND EMBARKED ON “OTHER ERRANDS” AT THEIR ESTABLISHMENT. (GOOD THING THE GAME WAS DELAYED).

AN EERIE CALM SWEPT OVER FIELD 1 AS THESE TWO TEAMS WITH A LOT OF “HISTORY” SET TO FACE OFF. CLEMS HAD A FULL ROSTER AND EVERYONE WAS QUIETLY RARING TO GO.  THE TEACHERS SEEMED FOCUSED AS THEY WARMED UP WITH A ROUND OF LONG DIVISION. CLEMS SEEMED IN TROUBLE EARLY IN THE FIRST WITH THE TEACHERS LACING SOME HITS AND GOING UP 3-0. BUT THE BATTLESHIP LOADED UP THE CANNONS AND FIRED BACK “HARRRRRRD, MATEY”!

AFTER A ROUGH START WITH BOTH HIS PLAYING AND WITH SPILLING A FULL MARGARITA, JOHN PAUL WIGGINS COMPLETELY REDEEMED HIMSELF BY HITTING 3 DINGERS. AND THOUGH HE FELL SHORT OF HIS “100 HOMERUN” PROMISE, MARKOW DID GO 4-4 WITH 1 HOME RUN (WOULD HAVE BEEN TWO IF TIM SPLITTER DIDN’T STOP AT 2ND BASE).

TNT HAD A RALLY LATE IN THE GAME AND SOMEONE HIT A HOMERUN THAT DROVE IN one or more RUNS, I’M NOT SURE SINCE THE END OF THE GAME GOT A TAD BLURRY. SOMEONE HIT A REAL POOPER THAT WENT ABOUT A FOOT FROM THE PLATE SO I DECIDED TO TOTALLY FREAK OUT BY THROWING MY GLOVE TO THE GROUND AND CHARGING THE BALL TO MAKE A HORRIFYING SPIN THROW TO FIRST, ALL WHILE HEARING GODSY YELL FROM THE SIDELINES “YEAH, YOU DON’T NEED THAT GLOVE!”

ALL IN ALL A PRETTY QUIET GAME AS BOTH TEAMS WAITED FOR THE OTHER TO MAKE AN INAPPROPRIATE BALL JOKE OR HAVE AN ERRAND PITCH LAND IN THEIR DUGOUT, BUT NEITHER CAME (MAYBE WE’RE FINALLY GROWING UP?). I’D LIKE TO SEND OUT A PERSONAL THANK YOU TO CLEMS FOR RALLYING AROUND OUR FALLEN SOLDIER AND AVENGING MY BALL. I’D GIVE MY LEFT NUT FOR ALL OF YOU, OH WAIT…

(Clemerica 21 / Turkey’s Teachers 7)

Field  # 2: Gibson  vs.  3 Kings

The grounds crew were surprised to see that Field 2 had been taken over by a very feisty and spirited little league baseball tournament, featuring a pitcher plunking 3 batters in one inning, an angry helmet spike, and some kid running into a tree. Whether it was from the impaled child or the Hulk Hogan’s ring entrance music “Real American” blaring out of speakers on their bench, The 3 Kings came out roaring and took no prisoners from the start. 3K SS Francesca Romano set the tone for this game with an amazing over-the-shoulder catch to retire the Gibson’s lead-off batter in the 1st inning. The Tomeo brothers went combined 7 for 9 with 6 runs scored and 5 RBIs and the Big L Santoro belted his 3rd HR of the season. After the game, Gibson player/coach Grambo was seen recruiting the the little leaguer that hit the 3 batters and the helmet-spiker. They already have enough guys running into trees (we kid).

Field# 1: Brooklyn Bowl vs. Pete’s

Despite the fact that Coach Sam is now unofficially hate-dating Anne Hathaway (I’m just as confused as you are), Pete’s Candy Store just could not make it work for the third week straight as they are just not meshing well with our new inter-league system (See Spike Hill record. Also Good Co.).

Godsy got the party started for the Bowlers by hitting a clutch 2-out, 2-run homer in the 1st inning (on his birthday, no less), while taking all the fun out the game for the Candyfolk by “playing too deep”. At least that’s what she said. Early inning hitting by both squads ensued, tying it up to 5-5 by the end of the 2nd inning. Then Brooklyn Bowl gained some serious scoring ground and left Pete’s in the dust.

Bowler Palma Blank added two more clutch hits, making it four consecutive games she’s batted at least .500, and Nate “Hebrew Thunder” Schiavo has been tearing up at the plate with an average of .538 since his return from last year’s ACL/MCL and double hernia surgery this year. Additionally, the Bowlers’ had a stellar defensive game, comprised of Derek Evers’ perfect fielding at 3rd base and outfielder Pat Snajder holding Scott Kirby to a single on one of his trademark “Tree Shots”. A little hiccup was had at the plate over a sliding rule vs. catcher injury- but I doubt it’ll ever be solved in my lifetime.

(Brooklyn Bowl 13 / Pete’s 8)

Field  #2: 2nd Chance vs. Soft Spot

The call for Dad’s to be awesome was heard loud and clear on the Yeti’s bench. Winston “Old Man River”, “DJ Spark” Muentes legged a double into a home run, Jason Dietz showed he is athletic enough to father two more kids and Anthony and his bionic leg and back pitched a gem. “Hot Hand Sibling” (HHL’S brother) hit home run that went through the trees and broke a car window. Great… there are two of them now! John “Soda” Reis went 1 for 3 on diving catches. He is ordering a new mitt, (we totally believe that was the problem). The 6-2 Soft Spot doubled up the score on the undermanned Saloon, who have now fallen to 2-6. And last we heard from Al Blizzy’s bachelor party in Montreal, he was rumored to be wandering the streets wearing that amazing shirt from his Color Me Bad era, and Sgt. Andre had opened up a brothel in the red light district with discounts for all WSL members.

(Soft Spot 14 / 2nd Chance 7)

3PM

Field# 1: duckduck vs. Good Co        

Holy wow, was this a tight match-up. The game moved fairly quickly as the score stayed tied at 4-4 from the first inning. Then the Pinks opened a can of whoop ass on us in the 4th and 6th innings, in large part to Stacy “Pretty Money” Rowe’s triple and homerun respectively. Methinks it’s time to move “The Pride of Pine Beach” up in the lineup, Sirs.

As for us Ducks, we found ourselves chasing five runs in the top of the 7th. Rather than imploding, I implemented a ye old Saturday Softball tradition, “BEER INNING”, where those who score get (you guessed it) a free beer. Bribery got me everywhere (except my wallet) when came out of the inning with four additional runs. (Side note: I still owe beers to Lauck, Ope, Andy and PeteMo).

Cut to our last licks in the top of the 9th inning. PeteMo scored in Ope to tie the game, when our pitching extraordinaire Denis Bramley hit a tape-measure blast into the street, tacking on two insurance runs…Followed by him walking two back-to-back batters, which prompted me to comment to Wally as he coached first, “I’m so nervous, I might barf…all over you.”

I’d like to send a shout out to the Pinks for a fine gentlemen’s match, and well wishes to Pat who was injured in the line of Softball duty. Feel better, buddy!

(duckduck 12 / Good Co. 10)

Field# 2: Loggers vs. Turkey’s Nest

With listless bats and sieve-like defense, the mighty Loggers fell 15-3 to the of the Turkey’s Nest.

It looks as though the Boys of Summer wanted to proved they’re not channeling the Black Sox by busting out some dope softball moves.  Shafer (first game as a proud Papa) came up a double shy of the cycle, JL continues a torrid streak of 14 hits in a row (including a HR), and Jake made two sick double plays at SS, one from his knees (all joking aside)Christie “The Big Hurt” Louis and Trish had great all around games as well, adding to the strength of the Nest.

The Loggers were sans key players Mike SarisBrian Pisanelli and the dynamic duo of Mr. and Mrs. X, forcing them to shuffle around their line-up and defense. The shuffle proved futile. They went down early, never able to get back up due to 4 1-2-3 innings. Much of their quiet offense had to do with Nester Dave Bassin controlling the game on the mound. On another note, Turkey’s Nest has been 2-0 since Disco’s nuptials. Coincidence?

5PM

Field #1: Black Betty vs. AT All Stars

For the second week in a row Black Betty faced an undefeated team. With a good WSL crowd on hand, these two teams kept it close.  AT started the scoring early on a 2-run shot from Gerald, but the veteran Black defense got stronger and tougher as the game wore on. It started and finished with defense, from Kevin Belz’s bare hand grab to secure a double play, to Camarra’s tracking down a moonshot to right center. JB$ kept the Allstars off balance for most of the day. The AT-ers threatened to make a comeback with the bases loaded in the latter part of the game, but could not cash in. Undefeated no longer, while Betty keeps climbing the South. After the game, OG Vinny commented, “It was a good game, we never gave up and fought til the end I am proud of us. Now come eat sandwich, ya rat bastard”.

(Black Betty 9 / AT All Stars 5)

Field #2: R Bar vs.  Spike Hill

OMG!! Spike Hill loses again! They are mortals after all, they bleed like we bleed!! Spike Hill jumped on the bums like the NYPD clearing park benches, scoring three in the first. Then inexplicably, started swinging for the fences that were removed two weeks ago. New proud papa Bobby, had a three hit day for his little girl. Down 8 -5 in the ninth with two outs and two strikes the Rbar bats were clutch. Teddy pitched another great game holding Spike Hill to four runs after the first inning, the Spike Hill offense dried up like a menopausal woman after that. Rbar climbs to into a tie in the South while O’Malley reels at 6-2.

 Toodles,

The New Additions
