Jamaica Bay Softball League

    Last Week of Regular Season!

 By The Commissioner

            Teams came ready to hit this past Sunday as we had almost every game go into double digits. Some scored a lot more than others as we had a few games end by the mercy rule. Our first mercy of the day was the Chuggernauts taking out the Orioles 19-7 and then won game 2 7-5. Also winning by the mercy rule was Morning Wood as they won by scores of 17-5 and 22-4 over the Kings. The Kings fell to 3rd in the West as the Mudsharks won both of their games by the mercy rule winning 15-1 and 15-0 over the Member Berries. Moneyballs beat up on the falling Misfits and won both games. The No-Shows didn't show and gave Old Head 2 wins. Knights of Columbus clinched a playoff spot with a walk off homer against The Army. The Army bounced back in game 2 and won 13-1. In a makeup from Week 1, Old Head swept the Misfits 7-1 and 12-7. Congrats to the Moneyballs and Morning Wood as they clinched 1st place in their divisions. We made a mistake in last week’s article and counted Old Head out, but they somehow are still in it and need some help this week. Don't forget this Saturday at 3pm is our All-Star Game at the BCAC Field. We are drawing the winner from our raffle and it is also a Mardi Gras event for the BCAC. They will be serving food and drinks. Also it’s rumored we will have a dunk tank there so come on down with the family and watch our All Stars play!

 9:30 Field 1, Morning Wood vs Mudsharks

  • Championship Preview? Both of these teams are heating up at the right time. The Sharks are winners of 8 straight and MW are winners of 6. Morning Wood has nothing to play for as the Mudsharks are trying to lock up home field advantage in the first round. PREDICTION: Split

9:30 Field 2, Orioles vs No-Shows

  • Orioles get to play in their 2nd straight matchup of the 2 worst teams. No-Shows had an off year and need to show up or they will take the title for the league’s worst team. PREDICTION: Split

 9:30 Field 3, The Army vs Misfits ***Game of the Week***

  • Misfits lost their last 8 and are out of the playoff picture after sitting in 1st a few weeks ago. The Army just needs to win 1 game and they’re in the playoffs. PREDICTION: The Army Sweep

11:30 Field 1, KOC vs Moneyballs

  • Moneyballs have the first round bye locked up. KOC clinched a playoff spot but are looking to lock up the 2 seed. PREDICTION: Moneyballs Sweep

 11:30 Field 2, Member Berries vs Chuggernauts

  • A west division matchup but nothing on the line. Both teams looking to end the season on a high note. PREDICTION: Split

 11:30 Field 3, Old Head vs Kings

- Old Head need to sweep to keep them alive. Most of the Kings all played on Old Head and looking to show them why they left. Kings are fighting for home field advantage in the playoffs. PREDICTION: Kings Sweep
