Week 6- Recap

Tue, May 14, 2013

Well done, grounds crew!

3 Kings slay an undefeated, Pete’s Candy Store moves into a sweet 1st place tie in the South, duckduck gooses The Gibson and AT keeps the dream alive with a walk off victory. Wow, what a way to celebrate Mother’s Day! But, before we recap another great softball Sunday, we realize they were mentioned on Commissioner’s Facebook post already, but they are totally worthy of a second mention. THE HUGEST OF THANKS to the special members of the WSL that put in hours of work on Sunday morning to get the fields ready to play. Field 2 was a lake and completely unplayable. Special kudos go out to Rbar and Pete’s, Grounds Crew Chief Mike V, Mike McNelis, Matt Silverman, Mickey Smiles, and Ben Webber. You guys and gals saved Week 6. Now let’s see what happened….

 

11AM
Field #1: Brooklyn Bowl vs. Clemerica (Shortz)

You’ve been warned about not providing us with content. Here’s your recap, jerks.

The Battleship were down a few players, so they asked the Cullens to fill in, which added a much needed sparkly flair to the team.

_

Mayor Al Buttah accidentally wore Kathryn’s pants to ump the game…

_

Which made it hard for him to properly call some of those close tag plays.

_

As defense for Brooklyn Bowl started to waiver, Godsy called in relief pitcher, Charlie Sheen…

But Clemerica countered this pitching threat with a rabid Rally Monkey

And just as Clemerica thought they were closing in, the unthinkable happened.

Okay, so maybe both teams were actually devoured by a large cat. If it be that, you are all forgiven.

( Brooklyn Bowl: 14 / Clemerica: 7 )

RBar: the team that cares

Field #2: Pete’s vs. R Bar (Shortz)
The field was pretty McNasty come Sunday morning, but the groundskeeper minions did their magic. RBar was missing mamas’ boys, Bobby, Josh and Pete. But, with Teddy on the mound, Nate manning Shortstop, and Sam Griswold hitting a 2-run homer, they managed to keep the score tied up at 5-5 and were beginning to think they had the game. Then came the top of 8th. Pete’s JJ Stanton hit a 3-run blast after popping up two times earlier, an obviously planned strategy, giving Pete’s the lead. Their stellar defense continued with Max, Ed “The Ageless One”, and Christine all robbing base hits with crowd pleasing line drive snags. At least they would have been crowd pleasing if it wasn’t the early game and on Field 2. Whether or not the RBar personnel depletion was the reason for the loss, the RBar mothers were the real winners this Sunday and fine brunches were probably had. That reminds me- I need a snack.
( Pete’s: 8 / RBar: 6 )

1PM

Cmon, Teachers!

Field #1: Turkey’s Teachers vs. Black Betty (Shortz)
Despite having a full squad of regulars and playing their best game since week one, the Teachers could not make the grade against Black Betty. But, boy did they give the defending champs a good game.
Looking to be head of the class this weekend, Haz Khawaja recruited some of his former Automotive HS varsity football players to bring some youth and energy to the squad. Damian Hicks and Brian Davila definitely provided the spark that had been missing, by going a combined 4-8 while Dre Rodriguez went 5-5 with three RBIs. As Violet Camarra entertained us all in the sidelines, Dad Camarra dashed the Teachers’ offensive dreams by tracking down at least four potential home runs. Rookie Nick Barnicle had a buttload of RBIs, Bud Schmelling played mean 1B and had a few nice RBIs (and has an awesome name), and according to Kevin, Chelsey looked hot at 2B.
I personally witnessed pitcher Alan Golgoski of the Teachers make a diving catch inches from the mound. Combining that with the fact that it was his birthday and just finding out he and his wife are having twins, I’d say he had himself a good-ass day, as long as you overlook the detail of them still losing the game.
( Black Betty: 17 / Teachers: 12 )

Hot off the base path, Hot Hand Luke ties up the game with a homer

Field #2: 2nd Chance vs. AT AllStars (GBlack)
Coming into this one AT was averaging 17.5 runs per game, tied with Spike Hill for the best offense in the league. Ersin The Turkish Tornado started the scoring early with a 3-run jack and it look like AT was well on their way to another scoring onslaught. But the 86’s had other ideas in mind. Behind a solid defensive core of LF’er Jeff Gutowski, SS Hot Hand Luke, 2B Mallory and a outstanding pitching performance by Nat Murray, the 86’ers managed to hold the Allstars to just 9 hits and 5 runs until the 9th. The Saloon’s offense scored when it needed to, with Justin Tesa leading the way with a 2-3 day and 2 clutch RBI’s. Hot Hand Luke tied it up in the 8th with a monster shot over the fence for a HR. Saloon celebrations were abound. Going in to the top of 9th with the score still tied at 8-8 and the go-ahead run on first base, AT’s Jimmy “Two Strike” Kanter flashed his veteran know-how and did not allow any scoring. He also shifted momentum for his team with a huge strike out to end the inning. With their bats ice cold, the Green and Gold used two walks to push the winning run into scoring position. The stage was set for Nate Buchik to make his mama proud, having already gone 2-4 he pokes a hot one up the middle, scoring DNasty for the exciting walk-off victory! The AT Allstars remain undefeated in a dramatic fashion while 2nd Chance drops to 1-4. Post game, Papa Vinny consoled son Miles and both teams had a great time eating and finally getting to the bottom of the Drunk Tank. Helluva game between two friendly teams.

A video of the epic walk off, special thanks to Rob for snagging the footage!

( 2nd Chance: 8 / AT All Stars: 9 )

3PM

Field #1: Turkey’s Nest vs. Spike Hill (Shortz)
From what I saw, this game followed my #1 prediction from my preview. And I was reeeeally looking forward to the Scooby Doo ending.

  • Kelly hit a homer
  • Bobby hit a homer
  • Phil hit three homers
  • O’Malley would’ve hit a homer but was robbed of glory by those bullshit fences.

LeBron had a great game at SS, wearing Jake’s old jersey. Ouch.

Unfortunately, I had turned the half-eaten candies into full-eaten candies throughout the game, so there was no retaliation. TN Pitcher Zac Whinnem had two near fatal plays in the field, with a collision at home and a lightening shot to his manhood, which he turned effortlessly into a double play instead. In the latter play, note that it was O’Malley that was picked off at first, who was then furious…which gave me a case of the giggles. A lot of close calls and heated moments left ump Kevin constantly apologizing to anyone he may have even slightly offended, even the hot dog guy. “Viking” of the Nesters played out of his mind, and got into a kerfuffle with Matt Silverman over a first base play that involved kicking the bag.  As the game wore on, his teammates racked up a few hits to tighten up the score. George hit a bomb, Jake went 4 for 4 and Christie Louis’ base hit started their “almost” come back rally. Turkeys cut the lead to one run in the top of the 8th only for Spike Hill to ruin everything by scoring five runs in the bottom of the 8th and emerging victorious. In my post-game chat with Jake, all that was on his mind was that JL has nice calves”. I love where your heads are at, Boys of Summer.

(Spike Hill- 16 / Turkeys- 10 )

These crowns are going for THE crown

Field #2: Good Co vs. 3 Kings (GBlack)
The Jekyll and Hyde Kings were at it again. With a offensive explosion by both teams this game was 10-10 after just 2 innings. The intensity would just be tuned up every inning. Things got chippy between the two former Northern teams as intensity heightened. Player of the game, Johnny Franzese led the way with two homers and a masterful pitching performance. Joe “Tomato ” Tomeo, Billy Gruarin and Stash McNelis carried much of the offense for 3K. The Kings also displayed impenetrable defense and held The Pink scoreless over the last 5 innings. SS Francesca Romano turned a sick double play to stop a Good Co 8th inning rally in it’s tracks! When it was all said and done 3 Kings showed it belongs in the North by knocking the division leaders of the undefeated mantle. (Good Co: 15 / 3 Kings: 20 )

5PM

possibly both

Field #1: Soft Spot vs. Loggers (GBlack)
There is scientific evidence that shows that drinking the correct dosage of alcohol before a game allows a softball player to loosen up and perform to a level of near perfection. So how do you try to stop a two game losing streak? You pray to have a 5 PM game where you can get in a booze-induced relaxed frame of mind. Looks like the Yetis found the right calibration between beers and shots. Please type it up and send it to all managers, thank you in advance. On a day where they were short because some of the Yetis decided that mothers are more important than softball (a-holes), they used the Anthony Pizza farm system, which is an endless line of cousins and nephews (300 in total) that can just flat out play the game. It also forced manager Zak Haviland to make his dazzling debut at shortstop, which included a barehanded grab. Lady Loggers Jen 10 and roomy Maeve were on fire, accounting for most of their team’s runs. Perhaps the Loggers should switch to all girls team and have a two men minimum on the field. There was also a rumor of Brenner having the greatest game of his long life, scoring from first on a double and making an extremely difficult catch in right field that almost took his glove clean off. Then again, Brenner was the man that started the rumor, so who knows.
At the end of the day, Soft Spot showed that are better than their 2-2 record indicated with an emphatic victory to stay in the thick of things in the South.
( Soft Spot: 24 / Loggers:10 )

Field #2: Gibson vs. duckduck (Shortz)
Okay, for the moment I take back my pessimistic attitude and declare that the Reelers are BACK! Even with the biting winds and no fanfare for our 5pm meet-up, our bench turned into quite the soiree. Much of the heightened energy came from fun-loving, albeit tipsy, utility player, PeteMo. He didn’t let a little thing like active plays stop him from chatting us up in the field. He also managed to get on base every friggin’ time. You might be our new Greg Wilson, Pete. I apologize in advance for getting you trashed before every game. Mike Hogan delivered throughout; going 5 for 6 with a homer, Matt Opalack went an incredible 6 for 6, while I was walked three times from two different pitchers (very flattered, BTW). On the Gibson side, they put up some impressive runs. Specifically in the 6th inning when we shuffled positions and they tacked on eight runs, closing the gap to only 4. Todd Kovner got on base a thousand times and my girl Leigh Avedisian was 2B kryptonite for our lefty bats. And of course, one of my favorite humans on the planet, Grambo was there, rocking it at 1st base.

As for the SOMETHING EPIC that was supposed to happen during our game- those were lies. Like when I told Cesar I’d buy his bar tab if he dressed up in a one-shouldered, red velvet mini-dress and take photos. Never trust a ginger. Ever.

Toodles,

The New Additions
