Our Next Games
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 Newcastle has to offer, this band of men formed a team called the Admirals and plotted a new course. They left the T-ball fields of the WMSPL and sailed east for the bountiful fields of the Newcastle Slo-Pitch league.
The Admirals fared admirably (ha!) in their inaugural 2017 season, defeating a formidable Combines squad for the A Division Championship.
But a disappointing early playoff exit in 2018 has the team eager to start the 2019 season!
The Admirals are guided by few principles, but do have a short list of core rules that govern the crew:
- Ye shall be ridiculed for striking out, swinging or looking
- Ye shall always run out a fly-ball
- Ye shall walk the plank after stranding a runner at 3rd with less than 2 outs
- Ye shall never make eye contact with another Admiral after hitting into a double play
- Ye shall battle hard, but always mantain good sportsmanship
- Ye shall splice the mainbrace after all battles
- Ye shall never insult those in ugly uniforms; uniforms are meant to be fun
- Ye shall encourage gambling, as gambling makes slo-pitch 1000% more fun
Come out and catch all the action the 2019 season has to offer!
The Admirals' bats were collectively flat, and The Pack's defense was on full display, as the guys in black and blue were bounced from the NSP playoffs after dropping game 2 of their NSP quarter final series 18-9.
Once again, The Pack Super Series squad fielded for this game proved to be too much for the Admirals as they jumped out to a quick 5-0 lead after the top of the first inning.
A lead, quite frankly, that was never really challenged.
Thanks to a number of nice plays by The Pack defense, the Admirals could only muster 3 extra base hits and hit into 5 FCs and one IEDP. Unfortunately, not the recipe required to pull off the upset and force a game 3.
With the loss, it closes the books on the Admirals NSP 2019 season. 😢
Kudos to The Pack for a well played series, and best of luck as you move on to face the defending Champs in the semis.
