2021 – First Balm

The 2021 SFRC season kicked off on schedule. Most LEADERS have been vaccinated. On game day the MN Department of Health and CDC said masks were not needed for outdoor sports.

The SFRC won their league last year and were forced to move up a division. It is worth mentioning that we did not run away with the league. We may have had eight walk-off wins, which are fun, but certainly doesn’t imply domination. This is also the time to mention we had two walk off GRAND SLAMS (Memphis Nate and Hunter Youngin’). We also had a walk off HR by STEVE STEVE STEVE in 2020.

Game 1 vs. CC Boys:

With Pauly on the bump, we gave up the shutout early by allowing one run in the top of the 1st. The SFRC LEADERS don’t let those things get in the way of their own hits and runs as we scored four in the bottom of the 1st, including a HR by Memphis Nate.

The SFRC scored in all but one inning on their way to a 14-5 win. Every LEADER got a hit in the first game of the year and STEVE STEVE STEVE drove in 5 runs. Scoring 14 runs on 19 hits feels like a decent run:hit ratio.

Las Vegas odds suggest CC Boys are working to move down a league.

One word: Mid-season form.

Game 2 vs. MN Wolf Pack:

I believe it is safe to say the MN Wolf Pack took to LL Field D (“D” for “Duh, where am I?”) with an abundance of confidence.  They wore their fancy uniforms proud and could taste victory based on age and uniform coordination. 

The SFRC jumped on them early.  Ol’ #35 hit a clutch HR in the top of the 1st with no one on and two outs (dumb).  STEVE STEVE STEVE, Kurty, Memphis Nate, Robert and Chris P all followed by reaching base and driving in runs.  Quick 4-0 lead heading into the bottom of the 1st.  The MN Wolf Pack came back with three of their own.

To plagiarize a line from Trent Tucker “What the SFRC do is, use their ‘VETERANESS'” and scored every inning.  4-1-1-1-2-4-2 = 15 total runs and held the MN Wolf Pack to 10.  That’s a 15-10 win if you are scoring at home.

CP and Pauly lead the way going 4-4 and 3-3 respectively.  

2021 starts off 2-0.

The only downside of the first week of 2021 is that we were shutout on the quote page. That might be a first. LARS – Do you still have your uniform?
