Our Next Games

Wednesday, September 22nd

Time: 7:00PM
8:30PM
Opponent: at Banana Slugs
vs. Banana Slugs
Diamond: Clarington Fields - SE
Water Boy: Dunner
Weather:

Armed with only ASA approved bats and their unimposing ability to hit home runs on kids ball parks, a band of men have roamed the Slo-Pitch world in search of the biggest trophies, the finest booze, and the loosest ladies (and moms).

With their sights set on all the treasure that Clarington has to offer, this band of men formed a team called the Admirals and plotted a new course, sailing East for the bountiful fields of the CSP league.

With the dawn of the 2021 CSP season, the Admirals are eager to get back to the diamonds, even if their play is again governed by social distancing rules and guidelines.

The Admirals are guided by few principles but have a short list of core rules that govern the crew:

  • Ye shall battle hard, but always maintain good sportsmanship
  • Ye shall always run out a fly-ball
  • Ye shall be ridiculed for striking out, swinging or looking
  • Ye shall never make eye contact with another Admiral after hitting into a double play
  • Ye shall walk the plank after stranding a runner at 3rd with less than 2 outs
  • Ye shall pay the heftiest ransom for not showing up without notice
  • Ye shall pay your incurred Team Fines
  • Ye shall splice the mainbrace after all battles

Come out and catch all the action the 2021 season has to offer, particularly the DBacks Wives Club swooning over their favourite CSP player: Mike McDreamy! 😍

assignment Admirals Remain Dead Last

With nowhere to remain but dead last in the CSP Men's A Division Standings, the Admirals dropped game 1 of their final regular season doubleheader versus Dead Last.

The game started off decently for the guys in black in blue winning the inning 2-1 highlighted by a 2-run Beasty Beatty .

After three straight singles to start the 2nd inning, Dunner rang the team fund cash register, failing to score Mark at 3rd. Doubles by Jomo and Bob followed that cashed in three runs set the table for Joey with runners at 2nd and 3rd, who also rang the team fund cash register failing to score Jomo at 3rd.

Dead Last scratched in four runs in the home half of the inning to knot the score at 5s.

In a meaningless 3rd inning that saw the teams swap twos, the game remained tied going into the 4th.

With Bob at 2nd with a leadoff double, Joey, surely summoning his inner Duran, got thrown out at home attempting to turn his easy stand-up triple into an inside the park home run. In his defense, it is hard to hear the 3rd base coaches from the 1st base dug out. Joey's RBI was the sole run the Admirals could muster in the inning.

Dead Last scored a touchdown in the bottom half of the inning but failed to convert the extra point to put them up 13-8.

In a meaningless 5th inning, the teams swapped tasty donuts to keep the scores as-is.

Needing a number in the top of the 6th, the Admirals scratched in 4 runs, highlighted by a 3-run Beasty Beatty , to get themselves to within 1.

Unfortunately, Dead Last followed by batting through their order, scoring five to win the inning and put them up by 6.

With the game still within reach, the Admirals unfortunately wouldn't prevail, scoring only a singleton before the 3rd and final out was recorded.

Boxscore:

Team 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 Final
Admirals 2 3 2 1 0 4 1 13
Dead Last 1 4 2 6 0 5 X 18

assignment Admirals Tie it Up to Get Walked Off

The Admirals rallied late to tie, but got walked off to drop game 2 of this Wednesday night doubleheader versus the Combines.

With the NFL kicking off tonight, and this beat writer having to deal with all things NFL pool related, it doesn't leave much time to write this recap.

It's too bad too because there was lots to write about in this one.

Like the 1st Admirals triple play. Ever! Ask Mitch about it. He'll be happy to tell you all about it! 😄

And Logan taking an errant throw to 1st off the side of the head. 😔

And Mike getting nailed by another rocket up the middle, this time off the top of his foot. 😔

And Mitch getting wrung up on 3rd strike looking with a runner on 3rd on a pitch that "didn't hit the mat". Cha-cha-ching! 🤑

But alas, time eludes me.

Skipping to the top of the final 7th inning in a game that the Admirals were leading until the bottom of the 5th, the Admirals were down by two field goals - excuse all the football analogies lately, but it is football season 😁 - that's 6 for you non-football connoisseurs.

A leadoff Jomo triple got things going followed by the aforementioned cha-cha-ching and a Duran over-the-fence home run to left got the Admirals to within 4.

The Combines leftfielder's robbery of Beatty's laser in foul territory stole the 2nd out.

Singles by Joey, Mark and Mike followed by a 2-run BJ double and a Dunner 2-run single knotted the scores at 22 before the Admirals' 3rd and final out was recorded.

The Admirals then took the field in the bottom half of the inning with the daunting task of keeping the Combines off the scoreboard to salvage the tie.

Eerily similar to how the Admirals walked off the Combines in the Championship Finals of their inaugural season, a Combines leadoff single got things going. A Tim-like runner was put in to pinch run at 1st. Another single followed that saw the Tim-like runner skate to 3rd.

With the Admirals outfield now moved in, another solid single to right followed that saw the Tim-like runner trot home to walk this one off 23-22.

Boxscore:

Team 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 Final
Admirals 4 4 4 2 2 0 6 22
Combines 0 7 0 3 7 5 1 23

assignment Close But No Cigar

The Admirals came up just short versus the Combines, dropping game 1 of this Wednesday night doubleheader.

With the NFL kicking off tonight, and this beat writer having to deal with all things NFL pool related, it doesn't leave much time to write this recap.

Skipping right to the bottom of the agreed upon last 6th and final inning, the Admirals were down a converted touchdown. After sending 3 batters to the plate, the Admirals had 2 outs with a runner on 1st.

An inspired mini-hit parade ensued that netted 5 to make the final 15-13 Combines.

Boxscore:

Team 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 Final
Combines 0 4 2 2 0 7 X 15

assignment Slugged, Again!

The Admirals got slugged again by the Slugs to lose game 2 of this Wednesday night doubleheader.

In a game that saw the Admirals' last run cross the plate in the 2nd inning, this game resulted in their 5th double digit loss of the season.

While the Admirals were able to avoid the Slugs plating a converted touchdown in any inning (small victories), they still allowed way more runs than the six they scored all game.

Sorry folks, this beat writer's finding it more and more difficult to get up for writing recaps for these one-sided games, so apologies for the ho-hum recap. 😫

Boxscore:

assignment Admirals Can't Keep Up with Slugs

The Admirals again couldn't keep up with the hot slugging Banana Slugs, dropping game 1 of this Wednesday night doubleheader.

With the Admirals sign out sheet filled with black, team brass had to make roster moves to avoid the costly defaults. Falcons' Matty G made his Admirals debut, and diamond pickup Logan Kentner also saw Admirals playing time, his first since last season.

As the visiting team, the Admirals had scratched in 3 runs before a sharply hit grounder with runners on the corners resulted in an inning ending double play and $10 in team fines (IEDP+SR3B).

In the glaring sun of the Clarington Fields South East diamond, the Admirals watched the Slugs counter by plating a converted touchdown in the home half of the 1st.

After the Admirals scored two in top of the 2nd, the Slugs plated another converted touchdown to build their lead to 14-5.

A big fat goose egg by the Admirals in the 3rd followed by a Slugs five-spot, and this one was quickly getting away. 19-5 after 3 innings of play.

The Admirals were able to chip into their 2 TD deficit after winning the 4th inning 5-2.

A 3 up 3 down top of the 5th followed by a Slugs four spot and the Admirals were down 25-10 going into the 6th and umpire-called final open inning.

The huge Admirals comeback was just in the cards on this night, but the guys in black and blue did go down swinging, scratching in 7 runs before the final out was recorded.

Boxscore:

Team 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 Final
Admirals 3 2 0 5 0 7 X 17
Banana Slugs 7 7 5 2 4 X X 25
