Last week, my slo-pitch team stormed back for a come-from-behind quarter-final playoff victory against Game Over. That set up a semi-final best-of-three series against the Cardinals, a team that had beat us badly in all three regular season meetings.
Again, I know only a handful of you care about my RSPA slo-pitch team, but this team matters to me. I've played with them for as long as I can remember and this is only our second season in the RSPA's most competitive division. The come-back last week was entirely unexpected and what transpired Tuesday night was even more surprising.
We were stellar defensively and excellent offensively, and we swept the Cardinals by scores of 16-8 and 12-6. It wasn't even close. Personally, I had my best series in years. Remarkably, we've advanced to the finals in the toughest division in this 108 team slo-pitch league. Essentially, we're playing for the league title.
We're not done yet. There's one more series to win before we celebrate. Two years ago, we won the Int-1 division title and were promoted to comp. Now, we're playing for the championship of the world.
