The talent pool was depleted due to many players being unavailable for this weekend, but Manager Brendan Dudas feels he was able to pull together a solid team, "We don't have the numbers that we'd like to have, but we do have four players with a lot of wiffle ball experience and great team chemistry. We've got great pitching and hitting according to our league standards, so I hope it carries over. I think we have a chance to put together a good run if things go our way."
The most obvious obstacle the team will face is the difference in rules. ISWB plays under a medium-fast pitch limit, so the unlimited pitch speed at the NWLA tournament could spell trouble for the Southside hitters. Sawyer Mitchell doesn't seem to think the pitch speed will be a problem, "Pitch... damn... [inaudible]... dingers."
The team will depart from Indy at 2 AM and arrive in KZoo around 6 AM for their 8:30 game.
Saturday's Keys to Not Getting Our Asses Kicked:
- Try to make contact
- Restrain from strangling Sawyer out of frustration
- Pitch the ball somewhere in the vicinity of the K zone
