Just three weeks left in the Spring season and the weather should cooperate once again. High 60’s and single digit wind, we’d take it every week.
Obviously, without the assistance of the wind, some hitters realized their home runs became flyouts and we had five perfect games last week. Five games…in which a team had no runner reach base. Ouch. This is really more of an indictment of the hitters than an accomplishment by the pitchers, right?
The standings are starting to come together and the Barnburners could be the first team to clinch a playoff spot with either a win, or at least one loss by the other two teams in the Great Smoky Mountains Division. If the playoffs were held today, we’d have one new team in the mix, but lots of wiffleball left to be played.
WEBGEMS, WEBGEMS, WEBGEMS – Look, we know you watch the game videos. The youtube stats are pretty clear, and a bit disturbing. What we don’t understand is why you’re not submitting good defensive plays you see as Webgems? Even in a light week, there are a couple of good plays. Send them our way. Just email the video link and the time stamp to firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll take it from there.
