Killington Softball League: The award goes to…

Congrats again to Clearly Moguls for winning the 2014 Killington Softball League Championship. On Monday, the All-Star Game was held which means the season has officially come to a close. This game is fun because teams are randomly selected and teammates get to face each other for the first time. The East Squad was made up of the following players, representing their teams: From Clearly Moguls, DJ Dave, Ronzoni, Brando and Brain; from McGrath’s, Prior and Esra; from Phat’s, Loco and Evan; from Heavy Hitter’s, Wild Bill; and from Chicks with Sticks, Creeper. The West Squad was Clearly Moguls Brett, Bubba, Hunter and Will; The Phat’s Coach Craig; and The Heavy Hitter’s Mild Megan, Vince, Chad, Phil and Matt. The East used the two pitcher rotation with Prior starting the game and Creeper coming in to close it. The West was a one man show with Brett “Zoni Impersonator” Regimbald on the mound. Regimbald put the West on the board first, although a close play at home with DJ Dave as catcher almost put a stop to that. The West jumped out to a 3-0 lead after Bubba smacked an inside-the-park home run and this time he made it around the bases without face planting as he did in game three of the championship. The East responded with six runs behind some big hits from Esra, Loco and Wild Bill. The West fired up the hit machine and regained the lead 7-6. They had a chance for more but Creeper fired up his “Cold Beer K” machine and delivered two to Chad and Phil. The East made it two in a row with an 11-7 win powered by a three run blast by Rookie of the Year Evan Anderson. Game MVP honors went to Creeper who hadn’t played in over six years but was voted in by the fans. He had three “CBK’s” total and some good “D.”
