Play of the Week – Round 6

This weeks Play of the Week goes to Nick Bertelli and Jason McDonald in the Firsts. Nick Bertelli caught a fly ball in Centre Field and made a great throw back to first where Jason made the tag to turn it into a double play!
I would have liked to see that!

Congratulations to Nick and Jason. This must have been a stand out play in what I’ve heard was a below average day for the Firsts, losing 18-2.

The final results of the vote was:

  1. Nick and Jasons 8-2 double play in the 1’s (4 votes)
  2. Mick Fullers infield single in the 2’s that lead to 2 runners scoring (Zach Breen and Matt Donoghue) (2 votes)
  3. A double play in the 4’s where Bailsey held on to the ball long enough to make the second out very close (1 vote)
  4. A runner steals home on a PB in the 3’s and Ned does a flip while making the tag (and got cleated!) (0 votes)
Congratulations to all the nominees, keep up the good work!

Play of the Week – Round 5

This weeks winning Play of the Week was by Rory, who won lollies by betting on Zach to get a hit.

So congratulations to Rory, and I hope he cut Zach into his winnings! Seeing as Zach is batting 7 from 12 (at least by his own counting), it was a pretty safe bet.

The final nominations and results, were:

  • Rory’s Bet (5 votes)
  • 2’s – Millsy fielding a slug-bunt at short range and turning a double (2 votes)
  • Women’s – Vibs making a diving catch and finishing with a commando roll (2 votes)
  • 4’s – Picking a guy off at 1 after he only just made it there on his hit (1 vote)
  • 3’s – Phillipe taking a catch in CF and then throwing to Tom at 3B to make a double play (0 votes)

Play of the Week – Round 4

This week marks the first round of the Play of the Week award. This award is for an individual or group (or even the whole team) for making a particularly good play while fielding, or doing something extraordinary while batting. It can be a great catch to some lucky baserunning that forced some errors. It can also be a tragic play, such as Zach’s ‘almost’ home run last week where he fell over between the bases! Anything that changed the pace of the game, or morale, even momentarily.

This week, the nominations were:

  1. Vibeke Pederson for her Grand Slam in the Womens (6 votes)
  2. Karl Whatham for his instinctive “hold the runner” play in the 3’s (1 vote)
  3. The whole Womens team for winning by Mercy Rule (1 vote)
  4. The 4’s for making a double play (0 votes)

So the winner is Vibs for her Grand Slam! Congratulations on winning the first Play of the Week.
