We play against the owner of Tucci lumber...look them up when you get a chance.
they are one the few licensed bat suppliers to MLB.

...really good guy who played triple A for the Blue Jays


Played these guys again and lost by 9
even their outs are shots

1-2 with two walks!

One league down, one more championship.

Bastards actually beat us first game 7-5, we didn't score until the 4th of the second, but won 5-3.  Forced game three was 10-3 easy win.   Played for 4.5 hours.

Then booze, lots of booze.

Game note - first time I ever tagged up to home on a line drive to second base.  Throw beat me by a split second, but I slid under it.  Safe.

We swept a team a month ago who was one of the better teams in RI.  Caught them off guard and they didn't catch up.   They hit so many bullets, just right at people and we took advantage.

Rematch last night.

Down 17-8 after 4.5, won 22-21.   Got mercied the next.....

I measured two shots they hit - probably around 390 ft......maybe more.....ridiculous.

Nice.

Saw a Demarini The One in a bag the other day.  When I saw it, i actually thought "oh, that's the bat Chimps has".   Stupid fucking internet.
Still in my bag. Will break it out for the September tourneys. Maybe get a real hit out of it? Been on a bit of hiatus as of late. The old Mum has been very ill. Hey, I can always play ball...right?      

/good to see grape still playing hard. sorry to report that this will again be another season without a championship. just got our tourney seeding. sorry, grape. hopefully, i can get a bye for next year's softball ball thread posting eligibility.

/cal? love the tourneys. get to see those monster homers. would clear a mlb fence. just ridiculous. 'course, when they miss, that's fun, too.

Gym before softball?

This explains things.

But, truthfully, your coach is a moron.

Eliminated in the semis.   Winning a playoff round in this league exceeded expectations.

Guy threw me a pitch from second base.  Called strike.

Next pitch I tried to drill him, but got on top of it too much and it lined 5 feet in front and skipped up.  Got thrown out.

This was probably the best slow pitch pitcher I've faced.  Knuckleball moved a ton, and with the new 3 ft min, it was tougher than any other pitcher I've faced.  The umpires were very liberal with the speed too.  It was borderline modified pitch.

Season has yet to start and the year-ending tourney has been canceled by the hosting municipality. Public lewdness and drunkenness given as reasons.  Angry

Meh. I hit like shit in those, too. Hit like crap in the home run derbies, as well.

Hey, here's The Babe to tell all* of us how to hit, criminalism and syphilis, aside.

*sorry, Grape. this is all about heavy (48 oz) swing, not bat speed. correction: he may have also swung a 54 oz bat.  Grin
//all kidding aside, just listen to the sound off the bat: total music.

Our season starts this Sat. with a day tourney. Maybe too cold to bring out a bat, or two. What did you you play with, and how'd you bat?
