Sportin' Wood got back on the field. One of the most veteran of all
teams in Major Sports. They have played in, 22 of the 24 years Major
Sports has been running softball leagues. They looked good from the
start as the Reruns, another very veteran team, probable 18 years
out of 24, just could not get the bats working until the second
game. The Wood took two.

the busiest day of the week for softball and there was a full
slate of games. The Weekend Warriors rallied in the first game
and put up 5 runs in the bottom of the 7th, to win, 18-17. The
second game will go as a win for both teams, because only four
innings were played. The Misfits lost the first game to
Nightmare, 18-6 and then rallied for a win in the second game,
as a house burned right in the Brookwood Hall area. Cougar Bait
and the Wrecking Crew had a barn burner of a doubleheader with
both teams getting a win. The Bait won, 27-20 and the Crew won,

competitive division. Slap A Pitch met up with the Gorillaz and
played them tough, even though they dropped both games, 11-5 and
16-10. Eight Men Out seem to be rolling along early in the season,
they beat the Diamondbacks, 13-0 and 12-1. That is not like
the Diamondbacks and I am sure the Backs will get their share of
wins. The Hitmen had a little to much for the A's. The Hitmen won,
17-2 and 13-4. The Hammerheads and the Rebels split their games,

OPENING DAY FOR MAJOR SPORTS, SUNDAY,
SATURDAY, APRIL 25
Well, it is that time of year
again. The Sunday teams will take the field tomorrow and the 24th year
of Major Sports will be under way. A few night teams will play this week
and by next week, all teams will be taking the field for the 2015
season. I wish everyone a great year and I am looking forward to seeing
Umpire fees for this year will be $50 per
team, $100 per doubleheader for umpires.
It is hard to believe that it snowed Friday, but when it is late March it
does not matter, because softball is right around the corner. I hope
everyone maintained they sanity during the winter of 2015 and with spring in
the air, if anyone did not, relief is on the way. If anyone has any
questions about the 2015 season call me or email me. Sixty-five percent of
last year's teams have signed up already and I look forward to a great 24th
season of Major Sports.
The Sunday division will start the last Sunday in April and the night and
twi-light division will start the following Monday.
