OTOW Softball
It looks like it might be a battle between Great Clips and the Dr. Dunn team, as misfortune has struck the remaining teams. Injuries have hampered Cebert Wealth and Wide Way, while the younger Tee Pee Tire team has lost their long ball hitter for a couple of more weeks. The only other team that seems to have a chance of gaining ground is Florida Eye, but although they have a good team, they have been inconsistent with their hitting. There still are quite a number of games to go as we play into the beginning of May, so anything can happen! The injured players are starting to recuperate and should be coming back soon with the hope that it will start turning around some teams. There still is the flair of awesomeness among the players, as you see them running after fly balls and making shoe string catches and cutting down players at the plate. It’s a great game and enjoyable to watch.
