Eliminated in the semis this year, no 3 peat.

Then, learned via facebook that my buddy (52, runs faster than most 25 year olds, cannon arm, hits the shit out of the ball) is hanging it up after 32 years of softball.

Made me sad.

Played a lob ball tourney on the weekend. Fielding was aces, but batting was mediocre, at best. Had a couple of homers for singles, but was mostly grinding out shit, and even took a walk. Oh, and looked a 3rd strike onto the plate. Ouch. Pitches raining down from 20-25' - farkin' unholy. I guess you get used to it. Another tourney this weekend, but slo-pitch. Then Jays/Brewers on Sunday to see how it's really done.

We call  that unlimited arc down here.  Played in a league like that for 15 years - it's a different swing.  You have to wait until the last second, and the swing "down" on the ball.

I hate it.

Downswing causes backspin which makes it launch.  Similar to a baseball swing.

Tourney over. It was a lob ball tourney. Grr. Hit ok, fielding fine. Lost every game. Team won the beer tent, tho. Good times.

Saw the Jays/Tigers game on Sunday. 6 hours, 37 mins for a 6-5 Jays' win. Kinda cool to see a freak game like that, but 12 innings with no beer!? C'mon, now.  Roll Eyes

Well, I'd guessitmate that only 25% were around to see the finish. Very un-cool. Bad Canucks. Bad.

eh, I routinely talk baseball with one of my co-workers in Toronto.  We both know our respective baseball teams ain't doin' much of anything this year.  No matter how close they appear to be to the second WC....

2 out of 3 elimination:

Won the first on a walk off in extra innings.....

Second, up two in the bottom of the 7th.  Single, single, BOMB.  Lost.

Down 17-2 after 2 in the next.

Season done.

No titles this year.   Sad
