Team Profile

I'm filled with mixed emotions as we approach the date of the 2014 NWLA Tournament. While I look forward to the fun and festivities that will be packed into one exciting weekend, I'm a little disappointed that we won't be able to send a more competitive team. It's not due to a lack of effort on our part. In fact our commissioner, Beau Reznak, started talking it up more than a year ago to drum up interest.

When Beau sent out the application to become a part of the upcoming tourney, he and I knew for sure that we would be going, so we were already 2/3 of the way to a complete team. Westside Washout teammate Mitch Yamrus wanted to go along, but only as a fan, spectator and Mario Kart competitor. Additionally, several excellent players from various SRL teams also expressed a desire to go. When our league was selected, I was thrilled for two reasons. For one, I was proud that our league was popular enough to receive the top number of votes, and secondly, I was certain that we would be fielding an excellent team.

But of course, job and family commitments popped up to knock players off the roster one by one. Originally it looked like we could be taking an army of eight, but now it looks like we're down to our original trio, and Mitch will be forced to play.

As a teacher and coach for twenty years, I have many times witnessed eager volunteers who are excited about an upcoming event, only to see them back out as the date draws closer, usually for weak reasons. Such is not the case here. It is clear that our players, adults with careers and families, simply had important commitments and could have attended if the tournament were held on a different date. I believe them when they say they will go in 2015 and will mark the date in their calendar as soon as it's announced. When we come back and tell them how much fun we had, I'm sure they will.

So where does that leave us in 2014? Well, Beau, Mitch, and I do make up a pretty good defensive team, but none of that will matter when the ball is sailing over the fence. Beau throws hard but suffers from bouts of wildness, I have a 45mpf "fastball," and Mitch does not pitch at all. We're used to batting with LoCo Bats and having a 70mph speed limit enforced, so we have to be favored to lead the tournament in strikeouts when you consider the yellow bats we'll be swinging and the fire ballers we'll be facing. All of this adds up to the distinct possibility that the SRL will field the worst team in the entire tournament.

It seems that the second (ok, maybe first) most important event at the tournament is the consumption of alcohol. Well, once again, our team falls short. We are casual drinkers, at best, and we stick to cheap beer while steering clear of the strong stuff. And once again, we are leaving some experts behind who could have competed with the big boys.

Our impending suckiness does not leave me discouraged, however. In fact, I'm announcing our strategy for next year's tournament with the full confidence that nobody out there will take me seriously. This year we'll be showing up with moderate drinkers and marginal players to lull everyone into a false sense of confidence; next year we'll be bringing our heavy hitters and take the tournament by storm. Or at least not come in last place.
