What is the [other] best named team in our Kickball League?
Q: Did Kick Tan Laundry win their third game in a row?
A: Yes, KTL defeated Kick in a Box 6-2.
I made the following comment to two teammates in the car ride home:
Tonight was the best we've ever played as a team.
That is a strong statement given the fact that, on paper, we had a perfect result the week prior.
Last week we won 10-0 in a five inning shortened slaughter rule contest.
The team we played last week was vastly inferior, failing to capitalize on our mistakes.
This week, we had zero defensive errors.
The other team did get a few hits, but for the most part we held them to singles.
If they hit it deep, our outfielders were able to track it down and catch them all cleanly.
One guy on the other team boomed a shot over our heads, that 2 run homer was earned.
We scored 3 runs in the top of the first.
They tried to answer in their half of the first, but only scored two.
The extra insurance runs weren't needed after all.
We have held the other team scoreless in 11 of the last 12 defensive innings.
The other Thursday Night Kickball League at Brands Park teams should be afraid.
Unpopular 13 year old boys have a better shot at getting to 2nd base than our opponents.
