Rounding the Bases
Posted at 4:10 p.m. on May 25, 2012
As Memorial Day weekend approaches, we wanted to give readers a quick roundup of what we learned this week in our ventures out on the diamond.
* Courting Disaster may be the only the team that plays with a dry sideline. Indeed, not a single red cup containing that special liquid could be found. Instead, the team relied upon that good old-fashioned beverage known as H2O.
* The Colorado Cutthroats like to take to Twitter, but only when it comes to thrashing the opposition. Wonder if the team will be as bold after a loss?
* Congressional Softball Commissioner Gary Caruso has had number of jobs in Washington, D.C. But the one thing that has remained constant during his stay in the nation’s Capitol: tending to his softball duties.
* For some teams, the rain is no obstacle when it comes to getting their softball on. When Courting Disaster squared off against the Destroyers earlier this week, the game was interrupted by some heavy rain during the 4th and 5th innings. But rather than throwing in the towel, both teams decided to muddy their cleats and pull through, and the rain eventually subsided.
