Team Profile

The All Stars, at least tier of those who were available, of the Potomac Wiffleball League are headed back to Columbus, Ohio, in two weeks to battle for the national championship of wiffleball, the National Wiffle League Association Tournament. The team will play at the PWL Nationals.

The second annual event, which is co-hosted by the PWL and largely organized by Commissioner Chris Gallaway, will feature 13 leagues from around the country battling for wiffleball fame in a fast pitch, base running, official yellow bat and ball tournament. A preliminary round of games will seed all 13 teams in a double elimination tournament to determine the champion.

Last season the PWL was 2-4, a tie for fifth place out of the original eight teams. Many of the other leagues participating for a second time are upgrading their rosters as the initial success of the tournament has raised the stakes for this year. The PWL, however, had taken a different approach and has downgraded the team for this year's event.

Five members of the roster, several of whom should have been cut after last year, are returning. The lone player not returning, four time MVP and four time Cy Young Award winner Joe Thaman. His replacement, a Moose Knuckle, Andrew Flowers who is 0-for-3 on Player of the Week wins.

Despite the challenges, Commissioner Gallaway, who is managing the team again, is optimistic about their chances.

"I'm confident we'll improve this year. We learned some things last time that are going to help us. We're dealt a huge disadvantage from the get go in this tournament because of the pitching. As a medium pitch league in a fast pitch tournament, our players have the toughest time adjusting. But, with that year under our belt, we're ready."
