WEEK 1 , sunday 23 SEPTEMBER
The sun was shining as our brand new league launched this Sunday. With a ton of newbies showing up it was so good to see new faces to Urban Rec as well as a bunch of veterans. The veteran players helped beyond measure showing other players where to pitch, how to hit, which is music to the ears of newbie players. The teams were split into birthday months, and set on their merry way. The first 2 innings there was definitely nerves on the field and it closed a 2 a piece. The next 5 innings is when the fun really begin. The teams both stacked with females, they were soon dominating through the diamond. Seven innings were played with a tight contest, but there could only be one winner….
EDDIE wins player of the week. You have won FREE Urban Rec Merch. He was super helpful, fun and had plenty of banter between teams. You are this weeks league legend.
WEEK 2, SUNDAY 14 OCTOBER:
It has been three weeks since the last softball outing. Everyone turned up early itching to play, including some new faces. This week we divided the teams based on favourite holiday destination = Eurostars vs Kiwis. It was a tightly fought game where the game was tied at 11-11 with one inning left to play. The pressure and the banter increased as the Kiwis took the match 13-11.
Player of the match goes to DANIEL for being such a socialite amongst both teams.
WEEK 3, SUNDAY 21 OCTOBER:
It as a great day to be out in the park. We divided the teams up by favourite food. A cool breeze was flowing through as players ran between the bases. The balls were flying today as we finished multiple innings with 7 runs. Everyone has improved exponentially after a couple of weeks!
Player of the match was KATE for being a consistently great player on and off the field. She is also one of the few who has read the rules!
