New Rule Vote #3: Big Red Bat

The idea behind this rule change is to make the league a little more interesting for the ladies while at the same time creating some higher scoring games. We have always talked about using the big red bat and this sounded like the perfect situation. With that in mind, I approached Anne and Lauren and asked them if they could pick out a red bat to help the league be more offensive. I think something was lost in translation because this is what they picked out: BIG RED BAT.

Anyway, please vote if you think this is a good idea to let the girls use the actual red bats.

Scandalous!

Suggested Reading

Our humble little wiffleball blog has received much praise lately from some very respectable peers and I think it's about time to complete this blog-endorsement-circle-jerk. I can't turn any new people onto their blogs because I don't think this blog has any readers that don't already read them.

So...

1) if you already read them, read them again (Natural Habitat & One Man Invasion). They refresh their pages faster than Witham trying to get first crack at Phil Collins tickets on ticketmaster.com. They are also extremely intelligent and fucking hilarious to look at...kinda like Stephen Hawking.



2) if you don't want to read them, then fine. Don't.


There is really nothing I can do to make you. I hope you are happy, dildo.

Rule Change?


We didn't exactly score a lot last year....

But let's not worry about that now. Let's talk about wiffle. Last season the scoring was somewhat scarce. Teams averaged less than 3 runs per game. While some of us enjoy pitching duels, I think more of us would enjoy actually hitting the ball a couple times a game.


What is the cause of our anemic offenses?
The most obvious possibilities are: 1) we suck at batting or 2) the pitchers are really good. Anyone that has faced Frank's fastball or Jack's whatever-the-fuck-you-call-it would probably side with the latter. Each team had at least one overly dominate pitcher who kept the bats silent and made scoring too difficult.

Any ideas on how to fix it?
I suggest we lower the number of innings a pitcher can throw. It is currently set at 8 innings per weekend, allowing a pitcher to throw a complete game and then come in for two innings in the second game. For a lot of opposing teams, that translates into 8 scoreless innings. By dropping the maximum to 3 or 4 innings, teams would not be able to rely on their ace (or aces) nearly as much. Consequentially, teams would be required to use 3 or 4 pitchers for the weekend instead of the usual 2. Hopefully this will loosen up some hits and get some higher scoring games. At the very least, it would let more people try pitching and get everybody more involved in the game.

Anything else?
Yes. Mike Evans has a good idea. He suggested that we start the league earlier this year to ensure we can get enough beach debauchery without sacrificing any wiffleball debauchery. And we need to have a championship this year. We MUST have a championship this year.

What now?
Vote so we can figure out what to do. Just type a comment below. You don't need to sign in to leave a comment.

Wiffleball for Alcohol: Season Five

According to this page, the traditional symbol for a fifth anniversary is...wood. Yeah I don't get it either. Why wood? (Wait, I do get wood. I just don't understand why people would choose wood as an appropriate anniversary symbol).
Anyway, our league isn't traditional and we don't use wood. We use yellow plastic (and maybe red plastic if Patass's home run drought continues). And we drink beers, and we have a good time. Since none of us have really grown up yet, and we haven't..I have pictures to prove it, I don't see a reason to stop.

Let's hope season five is as awesome as the fifth season of X-Files.

It was, and Lost sucks ballbag.
