Re: Coed League All-Star Restricted List

Manager John Kiefer has petitioned for and been granted the release of Nick Maile from the all-star cap list. Having enough at-bats to qualify in a year after making all-star and not being listed among the top coed or men's league players in that year or any year that follows, his release from the ...

Re: Game Line

As of 1:57 pm all coed games are on. There's not much I can do about the Game Line being down. It's on Verizon's end. They will not look at it until Monday at the earliest. Yes, it sucks that it just happens to be raining with no Game Line to call. All in all, this is only the 2nd time the Game Line...

Game Line

I've just been informed by Verizon that the Game LIne is down and may be down until Tuesday. Grrr! All I can say is check here for game cancellations. I will also send game line text messages to those that have already signed up.

Re: Conduct Unbecoming

A formal protest was lodged yesterday against Jamison Pour House (Thursday Men's) for failure to abide by the all-star cap rule. ALL-STAR CAP (MEN'S): Not more than 7 all-stars are permitted in a men’s league batting line-up at any given time. If at any point during the regular season, by any member...

Re: Weather Forecast

Yes, Neal usually records the games under the corresponding league option. For June 4th, the Game Line for Monday should only be for the 2 Monday Games at the Quarry and 3 games at Hatfield. Monday Coed league members need not hear anything about Wednesday Coed games. The Wednesday Game line for Jun...

Weather Forecast

Into each life some rain must fall - Henry Wadsworth Longfellow OK, I get it Henry, but this is getting old. We need sun and lots of it. I've never been to Seattle, but my guess is it feels a lot like what we've been feeling the past few months. Ugh! http://www.cuttingedgesports.net/pixmb/forecast....

Re: Memorial Day 1-Pitch Tournament/ Spring 2018

It was inevitable. The 1-pitch tournaments have been run 33 consecutive times since the fall of 2001 without a a single complete rainout. Today we were completely rained out. I'm not surprised. This year we've seen it all. Snow, rain, hail, black outs, brown outs, and ball field closures. Maybe Moth...

Re: Memorial Day 1-Pitch 2018 Tournament Teams / Consensus

OK, Bill. The team with the most 'pop' is Team 1 with an average career slugging percentage of 832. The next most 'pop' is Team 3 at 815. Team 2 is a couple of percentage points behind Team 3 at 813. Teams 5 and 4 are next at 785 and 778 respectively. Team 6 is your prototypical 'Punch and Judy' tea...

Re: Memorial Day 1-Pitch 2018 Tournament Teams / Consensus

From the FWIW (for what it's worth) department, here is my take on the tourney... The strongest team statistically is Team 2 with an average career team batting average of 548. The second strongest team is Team 3 (521). Team 1 is only a point behind Team 3 at 520. Team 4 sits at 502 with Team 6 and ...

Re: Memorial Day 1-Pitch 2018 Tournament Teams / Consensus

Another reminder... It is imperative the ball field is left in good condition. If it turns into a landfill as a result of the tournament, we can all kiss the tournaments goodbye. That is not a threat. It is more of a guarantee. The ball field owners (Eureka Quarry) will not hesitate to pull the plug...

In accordance with scheduling guidelines, the postponed games from May 21st have been rescheduled for Saturday, June 9th at the Quarry ball field. As hard as I might try, avoiding Saturday games is something we just can't avoid any longer. A revised schedule has been posted online.
