So the games went like this.

 

Adam brought the softest softballs possible for the games.

 

game 1.  Chuck vs Cory.  Cory had a 4 run lead going into the later innings.  But Chucks team kept nibbling away, until they passed them up in the end.  Although Chuck did stack the deck a bit by having Victor Rojas, and stealing Kent French.  Hope Kent feels better, after pulling his hamstring.

 

Game 2.  Adam vs Mark.  The typical grudge match.  Was even trading back and forth blows.  But in the end, GotBeers team pulled out a few runs in the last inning and finally put away Adams team.

 

Championship game.  Chuck vs Mark.   Was a seasaw game, until we ditched the nerf balls, and then the balls went flying.  Chuck's team put a 10 spot on GB's team late, and while we put a 5 spot up, it wasn't enough to overcome the huge lead.  

 

So congratulations Chuck.  You finally swept the leg, and hoisted the trophy.

One other note.  For the tailgate, we raised in the area of $300 for Miracle League, on top of what was raised at the softball game.

Those balls were not flying they were bombs. I know, I heard them going by me at crazy speeds.

@  Ace_Richards : (30 April 2016 - 08:20 AM) @Angel#1Fan I know what you did there. LOL
@  Angels#1Fan : (29 April 2016 - 02:33 PM) @swinghard Do you root for the Tigers, live in Alaska and make a 6 figure income?
@  swinghard : (28 April 2016 - 07:44 PM) @Chuckster70 Futhermore I don't think Trout's first 10 seasons will be as good as Pujols first 10. Pujols was a killer in his prime. Trout is a daisy.
@  swinghard : (28 April 2016 - 07:42 PM) @Chuckster70 No, he phoned it in. He was swinging no matter what. That's called phoning it in. He didn't care about the pitch. If you reply the video he's started swinging as the ball is released that's what makes it obvious. Face it Trout doesn't have the Killer Instinct to really be a feared player. Respected yes. Feared? Not so much.
@  Chuckster70 : (28 April 2016 - 09:34 AM) He struck out on a good slider with two strikes. He didn't give away his last at bat. One more idiotic post like your rant below and you're outta here. #Troll
@  swinghard : (27 April 2016 - 10:15 PM) Today the team was winning in the bottom of the 8th, so Trout decides he'll give away his last at bat, denying Pujols a chance to drive in some extra runs. Just because the team is winning is not an excuse to give away an at-bat, I don't care if the team is winning by 10 runs, you still play the game right. He swung at a 2-1 pitch 1 foot outside like I a guy that was ready to go home. If he takes that obvious ball it's 3-1 then he either gets a fastball to hit or walks, and either way, wouldn't it be nice to see Pujols get a chance to hit a bomb, give the fans another great memory? Instead the last memory of Trout in the game is him striking out looking like a fool. He got lucky with a home run earlier, but that's no excuse to phone it in just because you want to go home. If he was as good as Bryce Harper, he wouldn't be satisfied with a 1-4 game, he would actually try to get a 2nd home run or give Pujols a chance to pile it on. Trout just doesn't have the killer instinct it takes to be a world champion. He carried the same attitude into the postseason in his so called "MVP" season when he refused to take his bat off his shoulders when the team needed him most. He'll never be as good as Barry Bonds, and I don't think he has the same drive to be the best that Bryce Harper does.
@  Chuckster70 : (25 April 2016 - 09:35 AM) Glen's recap of last week. He's expecting PAIN this week, so pucker up Angels fans. http://www.angelswin...early”-edition/
@  JeanneusP : (25 April 2016 - 06:39 AM) Royals Up Next! This is goin' to be UUuuuugly!
@  Billy_Ball : (25 April 2016 - 01:24 AM) I like jellybeans, but I hate Gummybears.
@  cezero : (21 April 2016 - 06:00 PM) Harper has proven he can play really well for a season. It's idiotic to claim you'd build a team around him over Trout at this point in time. Another consistently amazing year from Harper would make this a different conversation.
@  VariousCrap : (21 April 2016 - 02:41 PM) Harper is as awesome as Trout.  You haters are idiots.
@  hangin n wangin : (21 April 2016 - 08:37 AM) I would take Trout too. But I wouldn't call someone who wants to take Harper an idiot.
@  Chuckster70 : (20 April 2016 - 10:04 AM) While Harper is better than Trout out of the gate, and a little better last season, I'd still pick Trout over Harper today if I had to build a team around one player.
@  cezero : (14 April 2016 - 06:58 PM) some idiot on MLB Network just said he'd build a team around Harper over Trout.

@  Ace_Richards : (11 April 2016 - 03:02 PM) And Yeah I'm well beyond 50. The ones with tattoos today that they're so proud of, may regret them when they reach my age, and their tats are a foot lower than they were meant to be.
@  Ace_Richards : (11 April 2016 - 02:52 PM) Beards are OK I suppose, It's just not my thing. As far as tattoos go they're just disfiguring. I really like the look of skin on a woman.
@  m0nkey : (11 April 2016 - 02:24 PM) How many times will the average person poop in a year?
@  Wallerrrr : (10 April 2016 - 01:58 PM) On average, a man’s beard will grow 5.5 inches per year.
@  daygloman : (08 April 2016 - 03:21 PM) I am! I've got, and HAVE BOTH! Well, a beard occasionally! But it's white when I grow it out!
@  Kody Mac : (08 April 2016 - 10:51 AM) What's wrong with beards and tattoos? Are you 50 or older?
@  Ace_Richards : (06 April 2016 - 11:37 AM) I'll be happy when the fad in baseball of the huge beards, and full body tattoos fade into history.

@  Homebrewer : (29 March 2016 - 11:49 AM) But the smell of poop makes me need to read. Go figure.
@  Wallerrrr : (26 March 2016 - 10:39 AM) The smell of books makes some people need to poop. The Mariko Aoki phenomenon consists of the urge to defecate while visiting a bookstore. Originating in Japan, it is named after the woman who first publicized such an urge.

@  Chuckster70 : (24 March 2016 - 10:02 AM) If you consistently fart for 6 years & 9 months, enough gas is produced to create the energy of an atomic bomb!
@  Wallerrrr : (23 March 2016 - 06:26 PM) There is a town in Newfoundland, Canada called Dildo.
@  Wallerrrr : (23 March 2016 - 06:26 PM) Thats a good one

@  Ace_Richards : (20 March 2016 - 02:12 PM) Chuck Connors (The Rifleman) as a player for the Dodgers in 1952 hit a Home Run and ...
He played the 1952 season with the Los Angles Angels, where he is best remembered for his showboating than his playing ability. For example, after hitting one home run, he slid into second base, cart wheeled to third base, then crawled to home plate
@  Chuckster70 : (18 March 2016 - 10:50 AM) When Jimmy Pearsall hit his 100th home run in 1963, he ran the bases in the correct order but facing backward to celebrate.
@  Wallerrrr : (15 March 2016 - 12:23 PM) A study once showed It takes approximately 142.18 licks to reach the center of a Tootsie pop.
