Hogs Win B-League Championship

Shots, beers, wings, pizzas...and oh yeah ...the Championship trophy!  

All were part of the celebration at the GridIron (Home of the Hogs) after beating Collins Painting (our decades-old rival) at Veterans Field  20-5 in the much-anticipated B-league championship game. The Hogs Softball team won it's first division title and are now crowned the 2023 Champs!

The play-offs had been marred by inclement weather the previous week and was re-scheduled for Tuesday evening. Wreaking havoc with various vacation schedules. Friendly skies greeted the Hogs tonight even though it was a little muggy.

Initially the Hogs seemed lethargic.  We were missing some key players from the line-up. This did not bode well. Our defensive cornerstone, if you will, of Brandon, Rhino, and Willy were all out. Joe was on the IR and Kauff missed the national anthem. But not to worry, with the players picking their own  defensive positions, Booch moved to the outfield, joined by Billy, Cricket and Ed. They played flawless  'D'.  Ironically, defense was costly to the Painters not the Hogs. They dropped, muffed and misplayed numerous attempts to field balls only to allow extra outs, extra bases and more runs for us. Our infield play shined also, manned by Bear, Crew, Nix and Straw. Noel and '3hit' Erik made up the battery.

The first inning was worrisome. The Painters scored three runs. The Hogs were unable to answer in our half of the inning, with three fly outs and no runs. Our opponents then plated another run in the top of the second leading to a 4-0 deficit. The fans were raising their eye brows and looking at each other considering perhaps the possibility of sitting thru a doubleheader in this double elimination tournament. They included Andy, Pung, Spuds and Jules. Areno had our backs as usual. But the bottom of the second told a different story. Collins lead would not last a PVille minute! Five straight hits including a Booch double lead to a 6 run inning. Ed picking up the go ahead RBI that would eventually be the GWRBI !  The Painters scored another run in the top of the third inning giving them 5 runs and keeping within striking distance of the never-quit Hogs. We batted around in the third inning scoring seven more runs.  Highlighting the hit brigade was Cricket with a 3 run HR blast.  Straw also went yard for a solo shot. Crew and Booch racked up doubles in that frame. Score after three innings...13-5!

The fourth and final frame arrived and we held Collins Painters to no runs in their half of the inning. Then the Hogs batted around again in the fourth ! Seven hits, seven runs including  doubles by Ed and Bear and an always exciting triple by Crew. Nixon, returning from his vacation, crossed the plate with our 20th and final run. Noel recording the walk-off single. Final score
20-5. An interesting bone-headed base running blunder by Billy threatened to cut short the Hogs rally.  He was caught trying to steal third base when the ball was slowly returned to the pitcher. Fortunately, Radar the Ump claimed that he had called 'Time' much to the dismay of the Painters.  Billy was allowed to return to second base and eventually scored and kept the inning alive for more runs. BTW the bottom of the line-up went 12 for 12! eliciting a 'Hogs like Bottoms' cheer.  The margin of 15 runs concluded the game with the speed up rules taking effect. What followed can only be described as bedlam as the 1st place trophy was awarded to our team leaders. The ensuing celebration and picture taking overwhelmed the Hog players and onlookers as our first championship victory began to sink in. Rings are rumored to be issued at the start of the 2024 campaign. And a replica banner of the back of this years jerseys will be unveiled at the GridIron.

Individual shout-outs go to Crew for MVH honors and managerial excellence. The MVH bridesmaid list is extensive. Straw, Willy, Bear and Cricket all ending the season above .500. Cricket is now eligible for HHOF consideration. Rookie of the Year was bestowed upon Ed.  Who can forget his first at bat for the Hogs? The deafening jeers, shouting and heckling with boos to the ump for calling balls as he extended the count to 3-2. Somehow he completed his AB.  He would later create his own award ( who would do such a thing ?) as the season came to a close. He accepted on his own behalf the  triple crown award honoring himself. He took home the prestigious Iron Hog title (games and bars) LVH and ROY. His base-running was a joy to watch. His fielding was always a constant adventure to say the least. 

Congratulations to all the Hogs.  Every #14 contributed to this memorable game and season. 
Thanks to the GridIron for their sponsorship, refreshments and laughs.
