Morphing into Softball Gods

For the 2nd time in 5 years 

2011 Throwback picture

The Spitfires have won the Sunday Morning Bum Rush Championship.

Their squad this year was legendary with Ang, Jrod, Howie, Greg, and Eriz as they became softball god like

On the season they earned the top regular season record as their pitching was paced by Greg and Mickey. Their playoff run was softball god like as they won two hard fought best of three series

  • Semi-finals they outlasted Asylum in best of three series 2 games to 1.
  • Finals they overcame a 0-1 series deficit in dramatic fashion. In game three, they were down 1-0 in the 6th inning until Howie (Bums Rush League rookie) and Mickey delivered two clutch two out singles in the 6th inning to pace a 4 run rally en route to a title clinching 4-2 win.

  2. The first Spitfires 2011 Chip was a classic run. My first year waking up at butt crack in th morning. We Clawed into the playoffs after maybe a .500 season. We were actually underdogs for a change. And together rose to the occasion sweeping through the entire playoffs. Glad the hardware is back where it belongs and congrats to the runners up Dead Rabbits who know how to compete to the fullest in the big games almost every time.
    I don't miss waking up early. But I do miss the accomplishment of a job well done.
