Ducks Lose, 13-3

2011 Ducks Baseball

South Oakland led 3-0 going into the bottom of the 5th, when Elliot scored 11 runs off a depleted bullpen.

We just ran out of pitching, and kicked it around a bit.

Elliot finished us off with two more runs in the bottom of the 6th.

Words can’t express how thrilled I am to be done managing.

It was an honor to be able to contribute to a team with so much talent, and hope to be able to continue to produce and play for the Ducks.

Team awards:

MVP: Jim Teyssier

Offensive player of the year: Mike Cinefra

Defensive player of the year: Anthony Defilippo

Thanks everyone for a great season, and thanks for reading.

We’ll get ’em next summer.

Pittsburgh NABA Finals

Woodland Hills High School

Game 1 3pm

Game 2 5:30pm

lets get two in a row

We have a chance to prove ourselves against the only team we couldn’t beat during the regular season.

Last year it was finally over coming the black sox, now we can win an unprecedented second straight and third overall title.

All I’ve asked for as a manager is that we maintain the identity of a gritty, blue-collar team, regardless of how much talent we bring on.

As far as I can tell we’ve done that.

Bad News for Elliot

Games 1 & 2 set to start Saturday 3pm, Woodland Hills.

I’m sure right now fago is getting the rest of our stats up.

The Ducks have been part of the league since ’03, and now, the two shitty years in ’06 and ’07 are the odd ones out, as we’ve posted a winning record for four straight seasons.

Our empire is so strong we absorbed the Owlz, the only team to finish a regular season with a better record than Elliot’s 22-2 or whatever they went this year, in their first season in the league.

We’ll have a chance to be the first ┬áteam to repeat. I’m not sure anyone has appeared in two consecutive finals. Whatever, maybe the Warriors back in the day, or the Black Sox, maybe?

I’m pulling the for the Warriors in the Baseball Sub-division Championship series.

The South Oakland Ducks of the North Side take on Elliott in a series that once again has the top two teams from the Monongahela division represented. We were 0-3 this season against these guys and could have won all 3. Our bats need to heat up again to keep this going and we have practice tomorrow 7pm at Springview to do it.
