Why are we on a baseball diamond without a bat?! It’s Kickball!

Who wants to get down and dirty on Monday nights at Havins?! We do….don’t forget to bring the giant red ball!! We have lots of games to cover so let’s get going:

First off, Alco-Ball-Ics took on Fresh Kicks of Ball Air to get things started. This was a low scoring, defensive game all the way around. Fresh Kicks managed just 1 run but it was 1 more run then Alco-Ball-Ics, taking the win at 1-0.

In another low scoring matchup, Balls & Dolls managed 1 run across the plate but Kick In a Box was able to do them 1 better, getting the Dub-Ya at 2-1. Nice close game!

Drinking Team with a Kicking Problem must have stayed at the bar a little too long this night, getting blanked 0-7 by Kick it & Quit it. Drinking team couldn’t seem to close the gaps in the infield and outfield with lots of balls getting through. Good news is, we get to try it again next week!

With a borderline risky team name, Go Suck Your Own Kick got by Kicks Out for Harambe 4-2 for the win. Both teams posted early runs to keep it close but Go Suck added 2 more late to pull ahead. Great game!

Don’t Stop Ballievin took it to Ballcoholics on the diamond scoring 3 quick runs in the early innings. Their awesome defense held Ballcoholics to zero runs taking the win 3-0.

 

In our next match up, Fireball took on Off With Sandpaper in another close one. Sandpaper scored first but couldn’t seem to keep putting the pressure on, allowing Fireball to score 3 runs when it was all said and done.

Pitches on My Kick took it to I wanna ki-ki-ki-kick u from ur head to ur toes keeping them from scoring a single run. Pitches scored consistently from inning to inning managing 7 runs across the plate. Well done!

Speaking of 7 runs across the plate, Your Pitch Makes My Kick Hard managed just that against MSR Athletics in their royal blue jerseys. With a sturdy defense and consistent offense, Your Pitch took the victory at 7-1 when it was all over.

Runs, runs, runs……it was dizzying to see Let’s Get Social round the bases over and over! Impressive indeed! Happy Hour Heroes managed 1 across but with Let’s Get Social scoring 11, it was all over before it began!

We Are Here for the Drink Specials looked like they were only here for the drink specials!! They did manage 2 runs but Ballers of the Bar circled the bases 5 times to take the coveted “bar related team name” trophy! We’ll drink to that!

Although Fried Kicken and Amazeballs fought through a close one, neither team could take it all the way to victory. Each team scored 2 runs but couldn’t manage to break the tie…..and you know how we hate ties! AAAARRRRGGGG!

Speaking of ties…..grrrr……Stumblin’ Bumblin’ and Kick it & Quit it also couldn’t seem to get over the final hump to victory. Kick it scored first but Stumblin’ came right back with a run of their own. Incredible defense on both sides kept the score tied and that’s how it all ended. Dangit…….we hate ties!!

After the game, everyone headed over to Happy Hour at Little Woodrow’s to recall the high and lowlights of the night. Plenty of challenges were thrown down for next week’s match ups so join us again to see how they all play out.
