Wish I knew how or why, but this season turned out to be a good season despite playing two games with 8 players and all but one game with only 9. We saw an increase in wins and jumped us past the past few 500 seasons at 9-3 which also got us the number one seed for playoffs!
Playoffs round one was a blowout and we beat the lower seed via mercy rule 20-5. The championship playoff game was…
After another season in the the upper D division of Santa Monica Softball, we finished with a 5-7 record bringing us under our .500 record of the last season. Another season with tough opponents and all new players made it a rough one.
As for the upcoming summer season, we’ll be ready. We are merging with our friends “Hug it Out” from upper F o hopefully create a more consistent team. See you on the diamond starting in August.
After another season in the the upper D division we went 7-5 and lost in the first round of playoffs. We did do better than last season and got our winning record back. See you all next season October 12th.
I just picked up the brand new 2013 Monsta Bats (ASA) FIB bat by Monsta Athletics. There is a lot of chatter on the web about these new FIB bats. I’ve had it for a little over a week and have only hit with it about 10 times.
Monsta ASA 2-piece slow pitch softball bat with FIB Technology.
It has been a little over a year with last years new entry into the slow pitch softball bat field. I can say that I’ve been using it almost ever weekend since May of 2013.
When making contact with the bat I noticed a sound which at first sounds really bad, but once you swing it a few time you realize that the sweet spot creates that sound. When swinging the Monsta, their patented floating inner barrel technology gives you such a large sweet spot to boot! I noticed that my pull power had increased and those hard grounders picked up speed.
All in all I’ve been very happy with the bat, and am hoping for it to keep up it’s great hitting over the next few seasons.
At the end of last summer in June, I picked up a new DeMarini White Steel 2012. Well a few weeks back the bat got a huge flat spot/dent in it. Was a little bummed it only lasted around 7 months, but was relieved to know it was still under new bat warranty. So after contacting DeMarini Bats I sent in the flat bat and they sent me a new 2013 DeMarini Steel.
Waiting for the weather to warm up just a tad bit more here in LA, then this bat will be ready for some action.
After winning the championship last season we got moved up a division to D- (which is the second highest in our co-ed league). After a 9-3 record we finished second behind Big Easy losing to them in the final championship game yesterday.
After a great season we are once again moved up to the next division. This time we’re in D2. Here is to a great season which starts in one week.
Yesterday was the end to our third season playing as the Wombats in Santa Monica. We ended on a great note! Our final standing of 11 and 1 got us to the playoffs were we won the semi-final game last week and won yesterdays championship game. So after three season’s the Wombats will be receiving a trophy!
