It’s Week 2 and Jack Shannon is three dingers from tying the all time home run record. A little more Barry Bonds than Hank Aaron, Shannon has a possibly insurmountable lead of five over his brother Jim. Wind should be out on Red for their game against the Twits, but they draw Crawford on the mound. Blue field for second game and wind should be in or across.
60% chance of rain Sunday AM. With any luck it will pass before our games. Our permit doesn’t allow us to play in the rain, but sometimes it’s a heavy mist and not actually rain. Make sure you’re following us on twitter (@potomacwiffle) for live status updates or call the Game Information Line at 855-8-WIFFLE about an hour before your game.
DO YOUR JOB! – Don’t forget to do two things this week, and every week. Vote for Player of the Week and nominate a nice defensive play for a Webgem. And yes, on Webgems, don’t be embarrassed about nominating yourself.
TRYOUT FOR NATIONALS – This is the first week of tryouts for the NWLA tournament. We need you, tryout! Details here
SCORING CORRECTIONS – Now that box scores and game videos are going up you will no doubt feel like you were robbed of a base hit, or unjustly assigned an error as you review the tapes. If there are any corrections needed for the scoring, or if you aren’t sure, and would like the issue reviewed, please contact the Commissioner. Corrections must be made by the Saturday following the games at 11:59 PM. You MUST submit the youtube link to the game, as well as the time (minutes and seconds) where the play occurs you’re challenging or it will not be reviewed. Please note, we definitely want to get corrections (wrong players, incorrect coding, etc), but if you complain about things that are judgment calls, like a hit or an error, it will still be reviewed, but you will be mocked online.
