LEVEL TAKES IT ON THE CHIN
(For Immediate Release)
SANTA ROSA PARK, CA – In a hotly contested battle with Mind Body Elite-ier, the LDDC gave up their bodies in pursuit of a W, but ended up with only bruises to show for it.
The LEVEL bats came out firing, as the LDDC mercy-ruled their opponents by scoring the maximum 6 runs in the inning, and only recording a single out. Mind Body Elite-ier managed to swing the momentum back their way, scoring 5 in the bottom of the second. That’s when things went horribly wrong.
Ted “Blue Dog” attempted to chase down liner to shallow center, but the ball just cleared the tip of his glove on a dead run and caught him squarely in the cheekbone. Like a stud, “Blue Dog” tracked down the ball and got it in to the infield before tending to his injury.
The injury didn’t take the wind out of LEVEL’s sails though, Andrea “McManiac” & Rebecca “Hairbling” teamed up for a ‘web gem’ as Andrea made a lunging stab at a grounder up the middle and flipped to Rebecca covering second to get the runner and end the inning. Mind Body pushed across a few runs in the later innings to put the game out of reach.
Ted “Blue Dog” said of his shiner, “I wear this bruise as a badge of pride in my team. The swelling will go down, but my loyalty to this team never will.”
LEVEL looks to overcome their injuries next week against McGlovin.
