The DC Twits were organized after learning of the PWL via Twitter. We found the league and organized an original team with a core group of Greg Hudson, Alex Cochran, and Will Campbell, all who attended Grafton High School together. In their first season, Spring 2011, the Twits went 7-7. It took a year later, Spring 2012 for the Twits to make the playoffs. This was due in a large part to the off season acquisition of ace pitcher Stephen Crawford (formerly of the Biebs Feevs). This signing has led the DC Twits to the playoffs every year but Spring 2013 (we don't talk about that year). Along the way, we also signed free agent Dan Lockbaum and Travis High -- both key signings for the 2014 run.

This past season, Spring 2014, saw the DC Twits finally click and everything come together at the right time. Coming in as a massive underdog, the Twits went on to beat the Gumballers, Janitors, and the Blandsford Barnburners, who had never lost a playoff series in their history. The Twits truly relied on a team victory, with multiple people hitting and pitching to combine for a 2-1 series win. This mentality will carry over to this season with multiple people playing multiple roles throughout the year.

This year, the DC Twits return with their original lineup in tact to try and repeat. Greg Hudson returns with a chip still on his shoulder, coming off a year batting .427 with 8 homeruns, and not being invited to play for the NWLA tournament. He might have thrown out his arm at NWLA, but near Cy Young year Crawford returns to the mound. The man who figured it out last year, Dan Lockbaum, is coming off a career season, looking to carry it over to this year. After having to miss the World Series (due to his wedding), Alex Cochran looks to continue his batting average rise this summer. A pickup in the Spring, Travis High comes into this season looking to build on what he learned, his quick hands should be dangerous at the plate this year. And finally, a new signing for the DC Twits, Chris Keeven of Superman's Wheelchair fame has agreed to guest play for us throughout the year. With his addition, the DC Twits are poised to make another run in the playoffs, and look to defend their World Series crown.
