One Final Sunday: World Series/Awards Dinner/HR Derby/All Star Game

Written by - Posted 2013-10-04 08:59 in News

There is little hope of the government shutdown being resolved before Sunday morning. If it is, we’ll return to Gravelly Point for all of these events. However, make plans to travel to the backup location at Utah Park Diamond in Arlington, VA.

Utah Park Diamond
S Utah St and 32nd Rd

If you have NOT RSVP’d for the free food, please do so NOW so that we ensure that we have enough.


The Sunday festivities will start off with the World Series. The Gumballers are in their first, and the Canvassers are in their league leading 8th, but first since Summer 2009.

World Series

  • Game 1 – Gumballers at Canvassers – 11:00 AM
  • Game 2 – Canvassers at Gumballers – 12:00 PM
  • Game 3 – Gumballers at Canvassers 1:00 PM (if necessary)


Three additional events will immediately follow the World Series and are open to all league members, friends, guests, and fans.

The post-season awards presentations as well as the formal presentation of the Commissioner’s Trophy will occur during the Champions Dinner. Certificates will also be presented to the league leader in each of the triple crown categories for batting, pitching, and fielding. Food and drinks for the dinner will be provided by the league.

Awards are currently being voted on by all players in the league. Votes are due at 11:59 PM FRIDAY night. If you have not voted, do so today!

Champions Dinner

  • Dinner Served – 12:30 PM
  • Awards Presentations – 1:00 PM

You MUST RSVP if you are coming for food, so we have enough.


The home run derby returns this season after a successful rebirth in the Spring. The format is a little different this time, each team gets one representative only.

Each contestant will get 5 “outs”. Any swing of the bat that isn’t a home run is an out. After the first round, the top 4 contestants, plus any ties, will advance to a final round. In the final round, everyone gets 5 additional outs, and the player with the most combined home runs wins.

HR Derby

  • Round 1 – 1:30 PM
  • Finals – 1:45 PM


After a long absence, the All Star Game is returning to the PWL.

The team representatives have been divided into two teams, the Senators and the Nationals, and are ready to battle for all star domination.

All Star Game

  • Nationals at Senators – 2:00 PM

All events are open to all fans and league members.

If you are attending the dinner, you must RSVP via our facebook site so that we can have an accurate count for food.
