assignment Admirals Hold Off Recon in Season Debut
Tuesday 7:45PM May 9th, 2017Didn't quite know what to expect in the Admirals' opener of their inaugural season in the Newcastle Slo-Pitch League.
Would they be in over the their heads?
Would they get to the diamonds to find out guys didn't know how to use the Sign Out sheet?
Would Poutine be hitting on teammates' Mom's (if any showed up)?
Would an Admirals secret admirer be in the stands to witness the team's debut in NSP?
The answer to all these questions was a resounding NO, oh, except for one person re: the Sign Out sheet question.
The Admirals eventually took the field and considering it was the first time playing together in a game, the defense was surprisingly strong, holding a solid Recon team to just 2 runs over the first 4 innings.
The Admirals' sticks fared quite well over that span plating 11 runs giving the NSP newbies an 11-2 lead after 4.
The stubborn Recon bats eventually got going putting up 6 runs over the next 2 innings, but with the time limit looming, the Admirals were able to hold on to a 12-8 win.
There was no time to celebrate as a Dead Last team was up next in the 2nd game of a double header.
Tim: $20 (no show; no sign-out)

Ryan: $5 (FK...paid)
Paul: $5 (FK)
