Waiting list at zero again
March 23, 2015
The waiting list is now back down to ZERO. So, once again, we have to ask/beg our players to recruit for us. Additionally, this is NOT a call for players currently on the DL to come back to play earlier than medically advisable.
All DL'd players should fully heal before making themselves available to play again.

Week #7 recap: A new #1. Plus lots of zeroes
March 19, 2015
White Blitz 12 Green Envy 11
With their 4th consecutive victory, White Blitz propelled from 3rd place to 1st place with a 12-11 walk-off win over Green Envy. Green Envy failed to score in three innings, including and especially the critical top of the 7th. With the game tied at 11, the Blitz opened the bottom of the 7th with three straight singles and Tim Deering coming to the plate with nobody out. Deering's long smash of a "grand slam single" scored the winner. Green Envy dropped from a 1st place tie to a 3-way tie for 2nd place as it snapped a two-game win streak.
Blues Brothers 26 Blue Balls 6
In a very one-sided game, the Blues Brothers demolished the Blue Balls 26-6. The Blue Balls had three scoreless innings, including the flip-flopped 7th when they added zilch. At one point it was 18-3. The Brothers win vaulted them from 4th place to a three-way tie for 2nd. The Blue Balls third consecutive defeat dropped them from a 6th place tie to 8th place.
Gray Hounds 12 Death 11
Two runs in the bottom of the 7th were the come-from-behind winner for the Gray Hounds. After four complete innings, Gray led by a very low score of 3-2. Then both teams started scoring some, with the last at-bat being the deciding factor. Death went three straight innings scoreless. The Gray Hounds, winners of two of their last three, remained in 5th place, while Death dropped from a tie 1st to part of that three-way-tie for 2nd.
Infernos 13 Old Yeller 11
Infernos escaped the cellar and returned Old Yeller to the basement. Old Yeller went scoreless in 4 innings.
Not a evening for offense this week!
This night, in our four games combined, there were 54 half-innings in which a team batted. Of those 54 half-innings, 17 of them were without a run scoring. That's more than 31%.
Brown Slime had the week's bye.

Basepath safety issues
October 19, 2012
Our league would like to reiterate our rules regarding player safety on the basepaths. If everyone always followed these three simple rules we would have fewer basepath safety issues:
Top Fourteen Things To Know About the Warriors Softball League
1. Our primary reason for existence is to have fun in a safe way and build male friendships.
2. To accomplish that we only allow the use of league-furnished, ASA approved bats, in 26oz, 27oz, 28oz and 29oz weights. Any other bat, other than those provided by the league, is prohibited, except for players 69 years of age, or players turning 69 that year. These players may use any bat of their choosing.. Currently we use the Mizuno "Craze" and the Mizuno "Frenzy" composite bats.
3. We use a 375/.44 polyurethane-core softball.
4. We re-draft teams each season, so players are not with the same teammates each and every season. Eventually, everyone plays with (and against) everybody else.
5. We have "AAA"-type tournament-quality players, and we have "A"-type recreational-quality players, and everything in between.
6. We have 45-year-old players and we have 70-year-players and every age in between.
7. We have a true draft, but even though we do not make promises or issue guarantees, we bend over backwards to make every effort to try to make special accommodations to players who need to be on the same team for whatever reason (siblings, carpool together from afar, etc.)
8. We allow the use of courtesy runners once a batter reaches first base.
9. Outfielders must station themselves behind an arc of orange cones until a ball is struck by a batter. If a batted ball touches the outfield grass, the batter can do no worse than a single and does not need to run/walk/crawl/get to first base. Batters may not be put out at first base on a throw from any outfielder.
10. We hire our own real paid umpires.
11. Every team participates in the first round of the post-season playoffs.
12. Every player receives a new shirt each season and it's theirs to keep forever. We do not issue faded, shrunken, ill-fitting hand-me-down shirts to our players.
13. The league hosts all players, from all teams, to a pizza party immediately after conclusion of each season's championship game, at no charge to the players. At the party, usually attended by 60-70 players, the Brad Betz Memorial Award is presented to the league's "best teammate". For information on this award, click on the Brad Betz tab on the left side of this homepage near the top.
14. All games have not only a fully-stocked first aid kit on site, but also a cardiac defibrillator at each backstop. Most league players have been trained on how to use it.
