tWo had a fantastic day, winning their brutal pool and crushing the ball all day long. Justin's troops showed why they are the
prohibitive favorite at London every year. Congrats to a fantastic day for tWo. Nice guys that they are, I am still holding it
against them that Jace turned down a wrestling camp shirt for a basketball one.

The tournament went off without a hitch. For the first time in over a month, the sun shined on the
weekend, making it a GREAT weekend to be wiffle balling. The Legends crew was surprised at both
how competitive the pools were, and how close all of the games were. Of the 50 games played, only 2
were decided by the mercy rule. 14 were decided in the last at bat, and 25 were decided by 3 runs or
less. There were 5 game ending walk-off home runs.
Most of all, THANK YOU to the teams that joined us ! Thanks to my crew for helping get every
thing ready. As I shared with many of you, on Wednesday our fields were mostly under water. Levi
and I worked feverishly on Thurs. and Friday to get everything in order. Thanks to Tim Beavers for
umpiring 7 games, and to John, Brent, Dave Page and Dave Fisher for umpiring multiple games thru
out the day. The umpiring was very good, I heard lots of excellent reports and we know from
experience how frustrating it can be to have an umpire who doesn't have a clue.
The Clamdiggers beat PVB in the opening round of the Winner's Bracket. The Bulldogs came from
behind late in the game to beat the Legends in the other WB game, and both the Clamdiggers and Bulldogs
showed why they have been standard bearers at London and continue to be threats to win London.
The Bulldogs won the Winner's Bracket by narrowly defeating the Clamdiggers in a great finals game.
