Pitches B Trippin'
Pitches B Trippin is back for their sophomore season... we decided to keep our name in order to build brand awareness for ourselves. Luckily, we got the black jerseys this year. we look extra mean now, and we're serious about losing.
After a much maligned regular season, Pitches B Trippin really stepped it up at the end of the year, winning our first play off game before losing on saturday to the eventual champs. hey, that's a victory for us.
We can't really complain about the first game of the season. we have some new people so our chemistry wasn't exactly there, but there were plenty of great plays made by everyone. luckily it appears that everyone on our team is cool. we came out swinging... scoring several runs in the first couple innings, only to have another signature meltdown at the end of the game. some dude on the purple team can kick it really, REALLY far. he pretty much won the game single handedly for their team. Going into the bottom of the 5th, we were up 6-5, and we ended up losing 7-6 :( oh well. we had fun, drank a lot, made friends, and partied obnoxiously as usual.
as for next week, we have a bye, meaning we will probably show up, drink in the outfield, yell, scream, stumble, kick our balls around, and interrupt a couple games. maybe we'll even show up to third base and beat y'all at drinking games.
