Free Willy Would be Proud of Radio Free

Who can forget Free Willy's strong determination?


Using the same type of determination

 RADIO FREE NY SWEEPS TO VICTORY

















Rarely does a Championship Final live up to its billing, but this was one for the ages.
In the opener, RADIO FREE NY had to wait nearly six innings to score the first runs of the game, but when a sure double play ball took a tough hop on the RAOUL’S/RJK shortstop and bounded into right field, RFNY took full advantage and scored five unanswered runs in the bottom of the 6th to win Game 1, 5-0.

In Game 2, RFNY jumped out to a 2-0 lead in their first at bat and everyone was thinking it could be a blowout. Hardly, because those would be the only two runs RFNY would score. But thanks to playoff MVP Matty Scaglia’s pitching and airtight defense, those measly two runs were all they needed but it wasn’t without drama. Defending PASL Champs, RAOUL’S had the tying run in scoring position in the bottom of the 7th and two outs. Unfortunately for them they couldn’t get the big knock.
Radio Free NY won the game, 2-1, to sweep the PASL Championship Series, two games to none.
Raise the Cup high, Uncle Curt



























You and your squad deserve it.

Inwood Awakens Trailer

The Insider has been mum on the future of Inwood.

  • Some say the Insider doesn't care and the League is over.
  • Others say The Insider is too much of a softball whore and won't let the league die.

No one really knows.

However, this short trailer of a job interview between the Insider and a prospective new groundskeeper to replace the legendary expensive and intoxicated Chelo











may be a clue indeed Inwood Awakens.

Maybe
