The team’s full name may not be fit to print, but their play on the field of dreams speaks volumes.
The DBs (that’s what we’re going to call them) went a perfect 7-0 on the weekend to win the Ladies Rules Slo-Pitch Tournament at the Central Park ballfields.
In the championship game on Sunday afternoon, the DBs downed the host squad, Daddy’s Girls and Momma’s Boys, 18-5 to easily claim the title in the six-team tournament.
In their defence, the runners-up went into the gold-medal game completely exhausted, having had to play six games in a row, starting at 8 a.m. on Sunday, to earn their way into the title tilt via the back door.
On this weekend, however, the DBs were simply not going to be denied. In their seven round-robin and playoff games, the team bested their opponents by a combined score of 105 runs to 20.
The DBs got the job done at the plate and on defence. Chelsea Vaughan pitched all seven games, while Brandon Colwell led the charge from the hitters’ box.
The Ladies Rules tournament hosted mixed teams consisting of no more than three men in the lineup at a time. The males were the only ones allowed to bunt, but weren’t allowed to hit a home run.
The slo-pitch season is far from over, with seven more tournaments still on the schedule which runs until October 18.
Next up is the Hopes & Dreams Tourney on the August 22-23 weekend.
