Forever

Ever since Bravey left the Monday league, RAOUL’S (RJK) has been virtually unstoppable!!!! 

Their dominant runs seem like it's been going on Forever.

This year RAOUL’S (RJK) SWEEPS THE 2015 PASL CHAMPIONSHIP!!


On a balmy late summer afternoon, the two Division Champions entered the PASL Finals, both with fine records and high expectations. Only one team lived up to those lofty expectations as 

RAOUL’S (RJK) was clearly the superior squad, allowing just one run in 14 innings of championship play.



In the opener, RAOUL’S scratched out a run in the bottom of the first but then they finally broke out, putting together a big four-run rally in the middle of the game to salt Game One away, winning handily, 5-0.

In the nightcap, an egregious E4 in the top of the first with two outs and runners in scoring position gave RAOUL’S a 2-0 lead, then the eventual Champs added another run in the 3rd for a 3-0 lead.

Spotted Owl scored their only run of the afternoon off of P Mike Peckins on a sacrifice fly to make it 3-1, but RAOUL’S (RJK) got that run right back in the top of the next inning, making it 4-1.

Owl did have a glimmer of hope when a lead off triple opened the fifth inning, but that was snuffed out when they couldn’t push the run across and leaving him stranded at third.

To their credit, they did bring the tying run to the plate with one out and two on in the bottom of the 7th, but Mickey Peckins got out of it, inducing a weak popup and a fly out and that, as they say, was all she wrote.

RAOUL’S (RJK) won the game 4-1, sweeping the Series and claiming the Heckscher Challenge Cup for the second time in three years.

Congrats go out to Manager Mike Peckins and his band of merry men (18-1) for a job well done.

Insider Analysis:

Mickey has now won the Monday and Wednesday CP day leagues and now has his sights set on the Tuesday league where his team will be prohibitive favorites over McHale's

  5. Jon Libman "Jesus" played his ass off in right field. Game saving diving catches and gunned every runner out who tried to advance. Good day at the plate too. Quietly gets the job done. Another key to RJK's continued success. Could this be his last year?
