HAPPY THANKSGIVING AND MERRY CHRISTMAS TO EVERYONE AS THE SUNSETS ON MAJOR SPORTS FOR THE THE 24TH YEAR. THANK YOU EVERYONE AND WE WILL SEE YOU NEXT YEAR.

PRIME TIME TAKE TWO OUT OF THREE FROM THE GREAT SLAMBINOS

SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 22
The final games of the season were played on Sunday. That was two night teams that could not find a night to play finished up on aSunday. The Great Slambinos took the first game from Prime Time and were looking to close it out on the next one. However, Prime Time came back and took the next two. Two very good teams, but there can only be one winner and it was Prime Time in the end.

THE VERY PROUD WINNER OF A TOUGH BRACKET, THE GORILLAZ 

SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 15
The Major Sports Sunday morning Fall Classic league came to an end on Sunday, the 24th year. What was remarkable about that was that two of the teams and one of the hybrid teams have been playing in the league for over 20 of those years. The Gorillaz made the final put out of the Coaches after a flawless Round Robin tournament. Flawless thanks to the teams and the umpires for doing a great job of moving from one field to the next. I did not get one call from a team that morning.
The week before the Gorillaz had beat the Dalers in two games and the Hitmen had taken out Eight Men Out, which set up a nice Round Robin for the 15th. The way the Hitmen were playing during the season, I thought that it would be their day. Jason Burell does a great job and has a passion for getting his team down at the field and ready to play. However, on this Sunday, there would be no joy for the Hitmen.
The Gorillaz beat the Sizzlers and the Coachs beat the Hitmen in the first round. As the teams moved to the next game, the Hitmen beat the Sizzlers and the Gorillaz beat the Coaches. Setting up another game with the Coaches and Hitmen, which the Coaches won, 18-11. Now it was down to two teams and the Gorillaz had no losses. When the final out was registered in the books it was a, 16-6 win for the Gorillaz. 

 
In another bracket we had the Diamondbacks taking on and beating, Jobu in three games, winning, 14-2, then losing, 13-5 and then taking a close, 8-6 win.
In the night division there was a barn burner. The Rage last years champions and Ashley Schaefer, who have been playing in the league for years. I was at the other field umpiring and a friendly match up with The Clits and 12 Angry Men and witness the fireworks coming from the other field. In the end Ashley Schaefer beat The Rage by one run in each game to take the championship. 

I just want to take this time to thank all of the teams for their participation and allowing me to run and manage the league they play in. I have done this for 24 years now and over 4000 teams have played in it since, 1992. I will always try and do the best I came for every team in the league and I hope I have a few more years to run Major Sports for everyone. 

Thank you all, and have a Happy Thanksgiving and a Merry Christmas...

There are still two teams that play at night that will finish this week.

FINAL UPDATES

THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 19
By this Saturday I will do a complete rap up of this past weeks playoffs, there were some finals played and the past weeks start to the playoffs. Sorry about the delay, but I will do an in--depth review of all the playoff games.
 

NIGHT DIVISION PLAYOFFS

TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 4
Well, if the Mets had made it to last night it would have been interesting. I don't think any teams would have played. However, there was no World Series game, so the teams played on... and all teams played well. The Great Slambinos took on the Bulldogs and when the fireworks were over the Slambinos will be moving on. They won the first game, 14-3. The Bulldogs came back for an, 8-6 win in the second, but then the Great's took the third game, 16-1. Prime Time met up with Reliable Gutter and took a pair, 13-6 and 8-7. The winners will finish up next week.

PLAYOFFS START SUNDAY NOVEMBER 8

SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 1
It was not a bad Sunday to finish the regular season. The temperatures were not bad and there was not much win. The Sizzlers took a close first game from the Gorillaz, 6-5 and then Sizzled them, 18-0. The Marauders took two, and the Coaches took two. The Dalers met up with the Hitmen and split. Winning, 12-11 and losing 20-7. The Rage finished their season with two wins as did Ashley Schaefer.
 

LAST WEEK OF GAMES FOR SUNDAY MORNING, PLAYOFFS SUNDAY NIGHT & WEEKNIGHT

FRIDAY, OCTOBER 30
The end of the Autumn Classic League for 2015, is just around the corner. The Sunday mornings will get after the playoffs starting next week and the Sunday nights will start this Sunday. Weeknights, will be Tuesday and I hope I can get all the teams to play on Tuesday.

 
THE GREAT SLAMBINOS TAKE TWO

MONDAY, OCTOBER 26
Watching the Great Slambinos for most of this fall I have come to the conclusion that, those boys can hit and field. They took two more from Reliable Gutter to finish their regular season.
 
SUNDAY GAMES
The Hitmen took two from the Gorillaz, 19-3 and 16-7. The Diamondbacks took their pair from Jobu, 17-5 and 10-2. The A's picked up two wins from the Marauders. The Dalers played Eight Men Out and took two, 13-1 and 24-12. The Coach's and the Sizzlers split, with the Sizzlers winning, 11-10 and the Coach's, 7-3. Ashley Schaefer split with 12 Angry Men and the Rage took two from the Clit's.

JOHN DEROSA, A GOOD MAN AND A DEAR FRIEND... REST IN PEACE


SUNDAY, OCTOBER 25
We all know that you have to try and get two minutes of enjoyment out of every minute of life, because you never know when it will end. A dear man and friend passed away this past Wednesday. Anyone who has been around softball in Suffolk County for the last 40 years, will probably know John DeRosa. 

He umpired my games when I played back in the late 70's. When I got into running Major Sports in 1992, John was one of the first to call me and tell my if I needed anything, to call. 

I spoke to him on last, Tuesday, he sounded great and we talked for about ten minutes. I left a message for him on Wednesday and two hours later I said to myself, "that is strange, John has not gotten back to me yet". Since, he either picked up his phone or called you back within minutes. Little did I know that he was answering someone one else's call... a heavenly one.

I cannot express eloquently enough how I will miss, John. He was kind, considerate, well mannered and just simply... a dear man. Take care, John... I will see you soon.

Peace, Peace!

He is not dead,
He doth not sleep-
He hath awaken from the dream of life...

RELIABLE GUTTER TAKE TWO

TUESDAY, OCTOBER 20
Reliable Gutter and 12 Pack matched up on Tuesday night. The first game was a close, 5-4 win for Reliable. The second game, Reliable just came out hitting and took ti, 12-6. The Great Slambinos met up with Prime Time and took two.

 
A COLD MORNING FOR SOFTBALL

SUNDAY, OCTOBER 18
Well, for October 18... it was freezing. I know the weather is going to change later on this week, but... burr. The Gorillaz won the only game played with Eight Men Out on Sunday. Some players on the Eight had to get to other obligations. The Diamondbacks took two from the Marauders, 13-10 and 10-6. The A's came down ready to play and beat Jobu, 12-1 and 25-3. The Sizzlers met up with the Dalers and took two of the three games played. Winning, 16-1, 14-6 and losing to the Dalers, 6-5. The Hitmen took two from the Coachses, 17-5 and 9-8.

12 Angry Men took their two against the Clits, 12-10 and 8-4.
 

12 GET THEIRS

TUESDAY, OCTOBER 13
On what may be the last summer like night of the season, 12 Pack took on a Premier team and beat them in two games. Fred, the manager, has put together a nice team for fall ball. On the other field that night, Reliable Gutter beat Prime Time in two games.

 
GETTING SOME GAMES IN

SUNDAY, OCTOBER 11
More than half of the teams played three games to catch up with some of the bad weather we have had. The Hitmen, a team that gets better just about every year and every season, took on the Sizzlers. Jason, their manager, a man, who loves playing softball and who does a great job of organizing his team, may be positioning his squad for their first championship. The took all three of their games with a  tough Sizzlers team., 12-10, 9-4 and 14-2. Eight Men Out had a good morning, they also took three from the Diamondbacks. Job met up with the Marauders and dropped two. The Gorillaz and Dalers split their two games at Farmingdale.

In the night games, 12 Angry Men split with Ashley Schaefer. Ashley won the first game, 20-18 and the 12'ers took the second game, 11-10. The Clits played two great games against The Rage, they lost both, but one was a 2 run defeat and The Rage is a very good team. I know no team likes moral victories, but for the Clit's it sure was a good night even though they lost two.
 

TWO GOOD GAMES


TUESDAY, OCTOBER 6
12 Pack is not the old 12 Pack. Yes, they have some of the old players, but they seem like they have added some pop on offense. They met up with a good team in Reliable Gutter. Two good games and the second one went right down to the last out, with the Gutter taking two. However, 12 Pack came to play.
 

THE GREAT SLAMBINOS... LOOK ... GREAT

MONDAY, OCTOBER 5
The Great Slambinos have looked good every game they have played this year. They are, 5-1, put they hit a ton and play defense. This week they took on Prime Time and took two wins, against a formidable, Prime Time team.

 
WASH OUT SUNDAY MORNING

SUNDAY, OCTOBER 4
The morning games were washed out, but we got some in at night. Ashley Schaefer played four games and won three of them. They beat the Clit's in a pair and split with the Rage.

PRIME TIME CAME OUT SMOKING


TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 29
Finally, 12 Pack got to play last night. For two weeks in a row, some thing came up with the opponent and I want to thank them for their patience. They matched up with Prime Time last night and the Prime were ready to go. Prime Time won two games.

 
GREAT SLAMBINOS AND RELIABLE GUTTER SPLIT

MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 28
On a summer like night at Sawyer Avenue both teams pounded the ball all night. Sawyer has deep fences and it was a good thing they did. Reliable won the first game and the Great's took the second game.

 
THE SECOND SUNDAY OF FALL BALL

SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 27
The Sizzlers took on Eight Men Out and got them good the first game, 20-8. However, a let down after that win an all of a sudden it is a win for the Eight in the second game, 11-3. The Dalers and the Hitmen split at East Islip. The Dalers won the first game, 16-9 and the Hitmen took the second game, 11-9.  Jobu and the Diamondbacks met for the first time this year and they split, also. The Gorillaz went to play the Coaches and got back on the winning ledger. They took a pair, 13-8 and 13-1. The Hitmen did double duty on Sunday, after playing the Dalers, they took on Slap a Pitch, because I have an odd division, 11 teams. They won the first won and just got by the Pitch's in the second game by one run. The A's and the Marauders split their games.

In the night division Clitorus, played very well, but still got beat by Ashley Schaefer. The Rage met up with 12 Angry Men. In the first game they won, 16-0 and you know how this goes, they lost the second game, 17-10.
 

PRIME TIME AND RELIABLE GUTTER SPLIT

TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 22
A few less teams in the night league for this Autumn Classic league, but all the teams are evenly matched up. On a beautiful night for softball Reliable Gutter came out and took the first game from Prime Time. Prime had them by 6 going into the top of the 5th inning and then Reliable unloaded with 9 runs to take the game, 19-10. Prime Time came back in the second game for a 16-8 win.

 
FINALLY, THE SEASON STARTS

SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 20
In 24 years of Autumn Classic softball, this is the latest the season has ever started. With a late Labor Day Monday and a rain out last week, well, I am just glad we got in opening day. The Sizzlers opened up with Slap a Pitch and were down by 5 going into the 7th and put up six runs for a win. In the second game they won, 11-2. The Hitmen are off and running with two wins over the Gorillaz, 15-3 and 11-3. The Dalers are back and ready to defend some to the titles they have won over the years. They met up with Eight Men Out and took a pair, 12-7 and 14-6. The A's matched up with their pals, the Diamondbacks. Two good games, a lot of fun had by both teams and each team took a game. The Back's won, 16-3 and the A's won, 13-2.
 
In the Sunday night division, The Rage and Ashley Schaefer split and 12 Angry Men and Clitourus split.
 

THE GREAT SLAMBINOS TAKE TAKE TWO

MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 14
Reliable Gutter, one of the old veteran teams that have played for years in Major Sports are back. They met up with the Great Slambinos at Sawyer Avenue and it was bombs away. The Great's won, 17-5 in the first game. In the second game the Gutter's got they mojo back and pounded the ball all night. However, in the end the Great Slambino's took the game, 13-12.

 
PRIME TIME AND PREMIER SPLIT

TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 8
The first games of the Major Sports Autumn Classic league were played tonight the teams split.
 

THE SUMMER SEASON OF 2015 COMES TO AN END


SEPTEMBER  3
As always, it seems to me that it had just started, but April 24 that first game between, Cougar Bait vs Prime Time was a long time ago. The last games were played this past Wednesday. Talking about Cougar Bait, four months after their first game, they were in the final game with the Wrecking Crew playing for the championship. It was a three game series, but got down to one game when lights went off in game three the week before. On this night the Wrecking Crew, came up with just enough offense and defense to win, 6-4.

Down at East Islip Marina Sportin' Wood beat the Gas House Gorillas in a single game, 8-7. Now they would have to beat the Reruns twice to win the championship and they did, winning, 10-6 and 9-6.


CHAMPIONSHIP 
SUNDAY

AUGUST 30
Kelly & Hayes met up with the Hitmen in a morning final. Two very good teams, both loaded with talent. Both managers, Rob of K & H and Jason of the Hitmen, do great jobs of getting their guys to up for big games. K & H took the first game, 10-8 in a barn burner. Then the Hitmen came back and won the second game, 14-7. Now, with one game to go it was for all the marbles. With the game tied going into the 8th inning, K & H put up 4 runs and took the final, 11-8. Great teams, great games...

The A's took a bracket by beating their arch rivals the Diamonbacks, 9-8 and 6-7. For 14 years the Go Hards have been playing some good softball in Major Sports, Will Richardson and his team are well organized and always ready to play softball. They have made it into the finals several times before, but have lost in all of them Not on this Sunday... They took on and beat All Mixed Up in a pair. A close first game, won, 11-9 and then a second game that they were in control the entire time and winning, 14-2. They were well deserved champions and very proud to have been able to win it all. Good job, Will...

The Has Beens took on and beat 12 Angry Men to win a bracket. A very good team and a winner from last week was Most Wanted. A new team a splinter group from the Dalers, who they beat for the championship last week. I think the best team in the league this year was Nightmare. A team that played all good competition during the season and cut through some tough teams in the playoffs. They beat a very good team, the Misfits in the final.

For those interested, the Autumn Classic League starts on September 13. Thanks to all the teams for a great 24th year.

LIGHTS OUT ON COUGAR BAIT AND WRECKING CREW


WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 26
What would have been a glorious end ot a championship bracket turns into an anti-climatic finsih when Islip Town will not keep the lights on for an additional 20 minutes. After splitting the first to games the lights went out in the 5th inning of the third. I would have been nice to have a winner crowned. In another bracket, The Zoo beat the Irish Posse.

TWO BIG WNS FOR SPORTING WOOD

TUESDAY, AUGUST 25
I thought Dr. Print had the edge on this night and they did take the their first game against 12 Pack, but... Sporting Wood played and beat the Raiders and matched up with Dr. Print in the second game as winners. Both teams went in with one loss. Dr. Print had them the whole game and went into the bottom of the 7th up by three runs and Sportin'  Wood came back with a 7th inning rally of 4 runs to win it.

ONE MORE WEEK OF SUNDAY PLAYOFFS

SUNDAY, AUGUST 23
Now, the long hot summer is down to one final Sunday of playoffs. In the morning semi-finals, Kelly & Hayes, got all over Chumlee early and beat them in two games. The Hitmen matched up with the Sizzlers in the other playoff and after a very good first game with the Hitmen winning, 7-4, the Sizzlers offense shut down in the second game and the Hitmen pounded the ball for 14 runs and a match up final with Kelly & Hayes. In another playoff Cobra Kai got knocked out as did Sloppy Seconds, Prime Time and the Hammer Heads.

In the Sunday night division it was the Go Hards taking on and beating the Metropolitans, 14-2 and 12-9. Two great games by to good teams. All Mixed Up haveing been playing some of their best softball late in the season. They beat a tough Has beens team in two games to match up with the the Go Hards this Sunday for a final.
In a big game we had Most Wanted taking on their dear friends the Dalers. I knew it would be a close won and it was with Most Wanted winning two one run games to take the bracket championship. 12 Angry Men on in another bracket this Sunday.
 

PLAYOFFS MOVING ALONG


THURSDAY, AUGUST 20
The playoffs continue with teams being eliminated each day as they have been for 24 years.
 

WRECKING CREW TAKES SECOND ROUND OF THEIR PLAYOFFS

WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 19
The  Wrecking Crew took on and beat Anthony's  Barber Shop. That sets up  a final with Cougar Bait for next week


COUGAR BAIT BEAT BLUE SHIRTS

TUESDAY, AUGUST 18
I knew it would be a good match up, Cougar Bait and the Blue Shirts and it was. The Blues took the first game and looked confident going into the next game. However,  the Bait  circled their wagons and took the next two games to take the best out of three to move on to the championship.
 

SUNDAY PLAYOFFS CRANK UP
 
SUNDAY, AUGUST 16
There were a lot of teams that started playoffs on Sunday. Usuall, I stagger the  starts of the moring teams and the afternoon teams, because there are just  to many moving parts and fields that are available. However, on this Sunday all teams started and with some nice planning and luck... It all worked out. The Hitmen took on a proud Gorillaz team that could not muster enough offense as the Hitmen pounded the ball for the playoff win. Kelly & Hayes moves on as does the Sizzlers and Chumlee. A good match up was Cobra Kae taking two out of three from the Rebels.
 

WRECKING CREW TAKES TWO

WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 12
Summer is always fleeting. It never last long enough and when we start the playoffs in Major Sports, that always means Labor Day and the end of the summer sun is close at hand. The Wrecking Crew matched up with Prime Time in a clash of two good teams. I was expecting more offense, but both teams locked down on defense and the scores were the Crew, taking a pair, 6-4 and 9-3. 

The Zoo, Gas House Gorillas and Irish Posse played in a three way playoff match up. The Zoo won both games, one against each team.

 
PLAYOFF WASH OUT

TUESDAY, AUGUST 11
The rains washed out all games.

 
WEEKEND WARRIORS WIN

MONDAY, AUGUST 10
The Weekend Warriors pick up a playoff victory against the Muck Dogs
 

SUMMER SUNDAYS FINAL GAMES

SUNDAY, AUGUST 9
As always, it seems like I was just making the rounds for the first week of games back in April. Giving out balls and a couple of weeks of schedule. Now, the regular season is over and playoffs will start this coming Sunday, August 16. I try and give everyone a chance in the playoffs, but sometimes the opponent is a notch better, but that is playoff softball for you in the first week. Good luck to everyone.

PLAYOFFS START IN NIGHT DIVISIONS

WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 5
Playoffs started on Tuesday for the night divisions and twilight teams. I have run this league for 24 years and over 4000 teams have played in it and every team has been eliminated or crowned in a playoff. I try and put every team in a two loss playoff system, if it can all be completed before Labor Day weekend. So far, it looks like good for doing that. The Sunday teams will start their playoffs nextSunday, August 16.

 
WRECKING CREW AND CHUMLEE WIN FIRST GAMES

WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 5
Four teams played on Wednesday in the night division, and we started off with the Wrecking Crew beating Anthony's Barber Shop, 7-3 and the Great Slambinos beat Cougar Bait, 7-3.

 
RADIERS LOOK GOOD IN FIRST PLAYOFF WIN

TUESDAY, AUGUST 4
The Raiders matched up with 12 Pack and won the first playoff game of the 2015 Major Sports summer playoffs. The score was, 11-8.

 
ONE MORE WEEK OF SUNDAY GAMES

SUNDAY, AUGUST 2
I always make up rain outs in Major Sports. When teams cannot play on Mother's Day or other Sundays, I try and make that up for them if I can. It will be tight this summer, but I am going to try. Next Sunday, August 9 will be the final makeups and then we have three Sundays to get in the playoffs.

FINISHING UP

WEDNESDAY, JULY 29
The last games of the twi-light and night divisions are being played this week. Two to four teams may have regular season games next week, but the playoffs will start for some. Weekend Warriosrs split with The Zoo, losing, 6-5 and winning, 7-6. The Misfits beat Nightmare in the first game, 12-6 and then tied them, 10-10. Both teams will get a win for the tie. The Gas House Gorillas had a little to much offense for the Muck Dogs, taking two. The Wrecking Crew beat Prime Time in a pair, 22-11 and 15-14.
 
HOT AND DUSTY NIGHTS

TUESDAY, JULY 28
The Blue Shirts took on the Great Slambinos and lost the first game, 9-8, but won the second game, 15-8. Raiders and Warriors split.
 
12 PACK TAKE TWO

MONDAY, JULY 27
The Pack are back. Taking two from the Irish Posse.
 

SUNDAY, JULY 26
The Sunday teams are winding down their schedule. There are make ups scheduled for next Sunday and their might be one more week of make up if teams need games from the two rain-outs. If teams did not want to play on Mother's Day, those games may not be made up before the playoffs.

DR.PRINT, RAIDERS SWEEP

TUESDAY, JULY 21
Dr. Print played well against a good team, the Blue Shirts. Not a lot of offense, but good defense by both teams. The scores, 7-4 and 12-6, Dr. Print. The Raiders who got beat by Sportin' Wood a couple of weeks ago, came back and took advantage of a Sportin' Wood team that were missing one or two players, but that is softball. The Raiders played well on defense and put up some numbers when they had the sticks in their hands. The Raiders took the doubleheader. Prime Time split with Cougar Bait. The Prime won, 23-12 and the Bait came back with a, 12-6 victory.
 
IRISH POSSE AND MUCK DOGS SPLIT

MONDAY, JULY 20
The Irish Posse, just like the Muck Dogs, love playing softball. Both teams always get after it and on this sultry summer night, the hottest day of the summer of 2015, so far, the teams split. The Muck Dogs took the first game by five and then the Posse came out and started pounding the ball. When the night had ended both teams went home with a win.
 
THE DOG DAYS OF SUMMER CONTINUE

SUNDAY, JULY 19
It is July and it was a beautiful day for balling. The Hitmen and the Gorillaz split a pair of games.  The G-Men, took the first one, 14-10 and the Hitmen, not to be out done, won, 14-5. Kelly & Hayes took a pair from Chumlee, 12-10 and 19-9. The Rebels and the Diamondbacks, split. Sloppy Seconds and The Beers always play each other tough. On this Sunday it was two close wins for The Beers. The Sizzlers took on Slap a Pitch and came away with two wins, 16-3 and 12-3. Cobra Kai won the first game against Prime Time, 19-10 and then dropped the second game, 18-13.  The A's took the first game from Hammerheads, 12-0, which woke up Hammerheads, who came back for a, 12-6 win. Nightmare, disappointed me and Eight Men Out by not having a team on the field at game time. Two wins for the Eight by forfeit.
 
In the night division the Go Hards will take next week off and they played well going into their break. They beat UFNTool, 10-3 and 14-13. The Has Beens took two from All Mixed Up as did Most Wanted, who took a pair from Full Swing Bunters. Ashley Schaefer took the drive to Venetian and played a tough Daler team very tough, but lost both, 16-9 and 15-9. The Metropolitans split with the Chupacabras. 12 Angry Men played well and won a pair from the AC Generals.
 

THE END OF ANOTHER WEEK

THURSDAY, JULY 16
I look forward to Thursdays. It is the end of my week, then I have one day to recharge and then I start getting after it again Saturdaymornings. The Weekend Warriors played a good game against Premier and took it, 9-5. Then Premier came back for a win in the night cap. Chumlee met up with the Reruns and the Reruns came out smoking in the first three of four innings. Showing some good defense on top of that it was a great game until Chumlees got some runs across in the late innings for the win. The the Reruns just stopped hitting and lost the second game by a run rule.
 

WRECKING CREW WINS, PRIME TIME AND ANTHONY'S BARBER SHOP, SPLIT

WEDNESDAY, JULY 15
We are in the stretch run of the summer league. Most Sunday and week night teams have played 85% of their games. Playoffs are right around the corner. Last night the Wrecking Crew were pressed by a game Zoo team in the first game, but the Crew hit well and field well. The Zoo's defense let them down in the first game. The Crew took the second game in five innings. Prime Time and Anthony's split with Anthony's winning, 7-6 and Prime Time coming back for a, 11-7 win. Usually, Wednesday has about five doubleheaders going, there were only these two tonight.
 
WARRIORS AND NIGHTMARE SWEEP

TUESDAY, JULY 14
Nightmare was not suppose to play the Blue Shirts, Dr.Print was and when they cancelled I had to get Nightmare to fill in. Nightmare has one of the best if not the best team in Major Sports this year. The Blue Shirts played hard, but Nightmare had to much offense and took the pair. The Warriors played well as did Sportin' Wood, but the Warriors one run win in the first game with an 11-5 win in the second, gave them the sweep. The Raiders split with 12 Pack.
 

A PERFECT SUNDAY

SUNDAY, JULY 12
Just about every team was back on the field after two rainouts for the last two Sunday's in June (we did have a bunch of teams play on July 5, but not every team could). Prime Time could not muster a team, so the Diamondbacks could not get their games in with them. Kelly & Hayes look like they will be a force in the playoffs. They took two from the Sizzlers, 8-4 and 17-1. Slap A Pitch has been playing some good softball, but on this day the Hitmen played better, winning two, 3-2 and 10-2. The Gorillaz had too much offense for the Rebels winning a pair, 23-1 and 11-2. The Rebels were missing two of their best hitters.

Nightmare took two from their old school mates, Chumlee. They all went to East Islip together. The Night won, 8-4 and 21-7. Hammerheads met up with Sloppy Seconds and both teams took home a victory. Sloopy's won, 9-6 and Hammer's won, 10-6. The A's came to play on this Sunday morning beating The Beers, 13-1 and 16-4
My apologies to both Cobra Kai and Eight Men Out. I sent them to Sawyer Ave. thinking I had the permit for July 12, I get it about five times during the summer. Well, I had the permit for July 19. They got to play one game. Sorry for the mistake.

The Metropolitans went into their game with the Dalers, 7-1. I thought they were stronger than they were, because it was a little of a mismatch. Sorry about that Metropolitans. The Dalers won, 19-2 and 17-0.

All Mixed Up matched up with the AC Generals and took a pair. The Chupacabras met up with UNFTool and both teams had a win when it was all over. The Tool won, 14-13 and the Chupacabras, 14-9. DX met up with a tough Most Wanted squad and when two good teams play each other, they usual split as they did. Most Wanted won, 12-5 and DX won, 17-9. There was a good match up at East Islip Marina with the Has Beens and 12 Angry men. The 12 came back in the first game being down by 7 and putting up 8 with two outs in a big rally to win, 15-14 the Has Beens came back for a, 18-11 win in the second game.

WITH TWO SUNDAY RAINOUTS TEAMS WANTED TO PLAY

SUNDAY, JULY 5
In 24 years of Major Sports, the 4th of July has usually been a weekend when there is no softball on the menu. However, with two rainouts the last two Sundays, some teammates wanted to get back on the field over the 4th. So, they did...

THE RAIN HAD TO COME SOMETIME

SUNDAY, JUNE 21
It has been one of the best starts ever for Major Sports as far as rain outs. So, I knew the rain had to come one of these Sundays and it did. The fields were turned to mush after Saturday nights rain. By time the early afternoon rolled around I got two fields up to speed. Full Swing Bunters and the Go Hards got their games in up until the 5th inning of the second game. Then the rain started coming down in sheets. Two more teams played Sunday night and that was Most Wanted, who took two games from Ashley Schaefer.

WEDNESDAY, JUNE 17
With no games on Thursday, Wednesday's schedule was packed with teams getting after it. It took about five hours working on the fields, but the teams got to play on perfect fields. The Misfits met up with the Great Slambinos. Two good teams, one old school one new school. The Misfits have been playing for years and the Slambinos, for only two years. However, both teams can play softball. The Misfits won the first game, 11-5, but the Great's came back for a 13-1 bombing.

SUMMER ROLLS ON

WEDNESDAY, JUNE 10
Where does the time go? It seemed like we had our first games a week ago. However, as I did the standings this week, some teams have played 10 to 12 games already. The one thing that has helped teams get their games in is the fact of only two days of rainouts since April. That is mind boggling. Anyway, the Warriors and Cougar Bait played two good games and both teams got victories. The Bait came out and rocked the ball the first game, winning, 13-1. Then the Warriors came back for a, 16-8 win. The Muck Dogs dropped two against Premier, but are still at, 5-5 for the season. Two good teams faced off down at East Islip Marina.

FIVE DOUBLEHEADERS ON SOME SLUSHY FIELDS

Thankfully, the sun came out and if it was not for it burning some puddles up, no teams would have played. I got the fields ready after five hours of heavy tractor work, so the teams could play ball.
