Spaceballs Drain 40oz Tiger Bloods
The night was warm as the black and pinks faced off on the dirt field at Cambridge Common. Many of the Spaceballs sported a gold-ringed sock on their right legs to commemorate the Boston Bruin’s historic Stanley Cup victory (though the “Bruin Fan Award” goes to Munt & Flip Vet JP who brought his replica Stanley Cup to the field and bar).
With bases loaded, Brennan then laced a sac fly into left field scoring fleet-footed Chris from third.
“Well at the time I got up there,” said Brennan. “I had just realized that the bases were loaded which didn't leave me a ton of room to bunt. So true to form I said, ‘Well, let’s just shoe the SOB and see where she lands.’ No fly is better than a fly with a sac behind it.”
While it wasn’t a blow out, it never felt particularly close as the Spaceballs’ defense was sparkling, their only allowed run coming on an overthrow by Big to first.
Game MVP and “Hero for a Day” Chris had the catch of the day in left field saving at least one run.
“It felt nice to make that catch, awkward as it may have been,” said Chris. “I used my big fat head to clamp the ball against it. I’m a big damn hero.”
Other players on the team stepped up, as well, as the Spaceballs were faced with an unprecedented number of absent fielders, leading to a stretched depth chart. Rookie Matty played his first game at third base and excelled despite the pressure.
Many of Gone to Plaid then made their way to the bar where they, once again, dominated rivals Blue Steel at the flip cup table, led by the plucky Angel, who was unmatched in first flip landings.
The Spaceballs look forward to their next game against the Fresh Kicks of BallAir.
