From The Gutter / Week 10

The Lost boys continue their winning ways taking 5 from a no-show Slackers. TLB has a ½ game lead in the American Conference. Kingpin takes 5 of 7 from Bowls Deep to remain in striking distance of National Conference lead. Zach Katz hurled a nifty 81-over 279 Game 1. That’s How We Roll tops Two and ...

Re: Leagues Forming 2024

At this point in time, a number of teams have yet to send in their confirmations to return for the spring 2024 season. Whether it's laziness, forgetfulness, or simply a matter of my confirmation request getting caught in the manager's spam folder, a confirmation is needed before your team spot in th...

Leagues Forming 2024

Leagues for Spring 2024 are being formed. I am in the process of reaching out to last year’s managers to get an idea of the number of available team spots in each league. If you are interested in entering a team in one of our 8 leagues (5 men’s and 3 coed), it couldn't hurt to fill out a full or par...

From The Gutter / Week 9

GFP edges past Bowls Deep 4-3. Nothing much to speak of on either side of the ball return other than Connie G’s 41-over Game 3. The Lost Boys empty the can of WHOOP-A$$ on That’s How We Roll with a 7-zip win. As a team they tossed 7 of 9 over average. Mike Corrigan with a pair of deuces. Pin Splitte...

Re: Men's and Coed League All-Star Restricted Lists / 2024

Norristown has a slew of highly talented ball players that have never played in SBA. Without some sort of governor in place, there would be nothing to stop a team from inserting one or two of these studs into their already all-star studded line-up without penalty. Undoubtedly, that team would become...

Re: Men's and Coed League All-Star Restricted Lists / 2024

Not necessarily. The player has to have a reputation that precedes him. Such was the case with Ryan Parfitt. He came into the league from Norristown and was either given all-star status upon entry or after 1 season. I can't remember which.

Men's and Coed League All-Star Restricted Lists / 2024

The all-star restricted lists for 2024 have been posted. Under normal circumstances, players would be happy to be on this list, but not so much in this instance. While the names on the lists are indicative of very good ball players, being on the list places restrictions on those players with respect...

From The Gutter / Week 7

Every match was a 5-2 score. Nothing close. No shutouts. PPB 5-2 over Pin Splitters. Ho hum bowling on both sides of the ball return. PPB is mid-pack in the American. Pin Splitters can see all in the National. GFP 5-2 over Two and a Half Men. As a team, GFP hurled 8 of 9 over average. A collective e...

That’s How We Roll takes down the Ball-barians 7-0 and ho-hum bowling only because Ball-barians were even more ho-hum. Empire makes a bold statement in the American Conference b...
