Austin Sports and Social Club’s kickball kicked off in week one over at South Austin Rec Center with some rather windy and chilly conditions. With only four games that evening on two fields, there was a lot of time to kick back and throw back some shots to try to stay warm.
Field 1’s games were on the defensive side with strong winds making it difficult to produce runs. Fireball! kicked off their season opener against Balls & Dolls in a low scoring win, 1-0. The second game on field 1 was another shut out with All The Pitches Love Me getting no love from Brew Ballers who out kicked them 5-0.
Field 2 saw a little more action that night with Win or Lose We Still Booze scoring 15 runs in their win against What the Kick?! It wasn’t a shut out, though, What the Kick?! was able to score 6 runs against Win or Lose We Still Booze. The 7:55 game on field 2 earned the game of the night title. Kick It Real Good squared off against Bad News Brews in an exciting close game. Kick It Real Good came up with a dramatic 6-5 win, scoring a run in the final frame.
After the games, the teams headed over to Gourdough’s on South Lamar for some more fun and socializing. The donuts are hot, the beers are cheap, and the fun is free!
