Season End Events Postponed Until October 7

Due to the weather forecast for Wednesday, September 30 and the need to put in the food order with the caterer in advance, all season ending events (banquet, meeting, championship game(s)) have been postponed until Wednesday, October 7.

In a thrilling game, Physical Therapy defeated Sport Stitch in the winner’s bracket final to punch their ticket to the championship game. Sport Stitch then won the loser’s bracket final to get a rematch; Sport Stitch will need to defeat Physical Therapy twice to win the championship.

The Cinderella team of the 2020 players was Azalea Barber Shop who lost their first game on September 16 before winning five straight (including three on September 23) to reach the loser’s bracket final. They ended up in third place, with Brunetti’s Express finishing fourth.

October 7 will start at 6:00 with the league banquet on field 1. At approximately 6:45 the league meeting will take place, where some teams and contributors will be recognized and league business will be conducted. Then at 7:30 on field 2 the championship game will be played. A fun night is planned and hopefully all members can participate as much as possible.

Regular Season Champs – Physical Therapy Solutions

Congratulations to Physical Therapy Solutions for finishing first in the regular season. Physical Therapy Solutions and Brunetti’s Express kept the top two spots all seasons, and Brunetti’s Express came in second. Sport Stitch started 0 and 4, but won 11 of their last 13 games to finish in third place.

End of Season Picnic and League Meeting

With Covid-19 limiting the size of inside events, the league is planning an end-of-season picnic at Pole Green Park to celebrate the season, combined with the league meeting. Currently playoffs are scheduled to begin on Wednesday, September 16 and run three weeks, ending on September 30. This will be pushed back in case of rain or other events that cancel games.

On the night of the finals, currently September 30, we are planning a fully catered picnic with chopped BBQ chicken pieces, cole slaw, baked beans, green beans, potato salad, apple cobbler, drinks, etc., beginning at 6PM. This is FREE for players and one guest: we do ask that you sign up with your manager so we can order the correct amount of food.

At the conclusion of the meal, we will have our league meeting to recognize our managers, board members, and others who have contributed to the league throughout the year. Among other league business and reports, we will elect four positions for 2021, including President, Treasurer, and two Director positions. If you are interested in running for one of these positions, please let Dianne Long know and you will be added to the ballot.

Following the picnic and meeting, the playoffs will conclude with the championship game(s). There could be either 1 or 2, depending on who wins the first game. Game specific entertainment is being planned for these games, so everyone is encouraged to stick around to see who wins.
