PurpleSaurus Rex!

After a long stretch of byes and getting the living crap beaten out of us by significantly better teams, PurpleSaurus got back to its roots, had a costume making party, and showed the league what it means to own a theme night. Behold, the X-Men!

(Clockwise from Left) Callisto, Daken, Psylocke, Archangel, Domino, Beast, Phoenix, Jubilee. Rogue and Gambit showed up later.

Our go-to Xavier was out sick, but that didn't stop us from banding together to protect the rights of mutants everywhere. And protect them we did! Our super-powered offense seemed untouchable with balls that continued to fall in all the right places as our kick-away-every-at-bat strategy had one of it's rare successes and generated a staggering 18 runs, more than we had scored the rest of the season combined. We close our season 5-3, and expect to see some good competition in the early rounds of the playoffs. I'm not sure PurpleSaurus has ever won a playoff game, but if I had to pick a squad to do it this would be the one. Don't be fooled by the fact that we boo people for bunting and sometimes throw it to left field instead of 3rd base, this team has the potential to do some serious damage.
