Mark II Current Web Update

New News of High Value...

Remaining Practice Schedule     

Sunday, 4/26 at Crown  (Note venue change--anytime after 9:30 AM; practice game with The Slugs if we get enough guys) 

Tuesday, 4/28 at Crown (anytime after 5:30; practice game with The Slugs if we get enough guys)

New News of High Value (from the 4/21 Update):
The 2015 "Captains' Packet" has been distributed and was posted on this site.  It includes the Rules (pages 1-8) and the ASA Non-Approved Bats list (pages 16-19).  Please take some time to (re-)read the Rules to make sure you're familiar with the unique-to-Evanston rules.  Also, make sure you check the non-approved bats list before you buy/bring a bat for use in our Wednesday League games.  To locate the document, click the above link "Handout: 2015 Administrative: Schedule, Rules, Roster & Financials" or open the "Handouts-Sheets" folder in the window pane on the left and under "2015 Administrative: Schedule, Rules, Roster & Financials." look for the "Evanston Rules & Non-Approved Bats" file.  
Old News of High Value (from the 4/21 Update):
Our 2015 Opener is just days away...Wednesday, April 29, at Milford Mudlarks, at 6:45 on Diamond #2 ("2 is on Lee").  With only 3 possible practice dates before then, I think it's imperative that we do everything we can to get everyone ready for the real games.  That particularly applies to those of you--regulars and subs--who haven't found your way out to a practice yet!

Old News of Low Value (from the 4/14 Update):  

Roe released the Wednesday League schedule yesterday (attached).  Our 2015 Opener will be on Wednesday, April 29--two weeks from tomorrow--when we will visit a somewhat familiar foe, Milford Mudlarks, at 6:45 on Diamond #2 ("2 is on Lee").  The Mudlarks have been around quite a few years, but we've only played them 3 times, beating them in the old Crown Tuesday League, 13-8, in 2003 & in the Crown Thursday League, 8-7 in 8 innings, in 2004 (the game in which we turned 4 DPs with Bob B breaking his hand during one of them) before falling to them, 15-2, in last year's reunion.  While not the same team, several of their players, including Loren, their pitcher/captain, are also familiar to/with us as they played in the Skokie League as Master Batters (AKA Shock & Awe). 
At first blush, the league appears to feature 7 returning and 5 new teams, based on the limited information from the schedule (team names and unknown-to-us captains).  The returning teams include Any Given Wednesday, Advocates, Milford Mudlarks, Spiders, The Slugs and Glory Days.  The possibly new teams include Growlers, Team Random, The Chronicles, Dark Knights (could that still be the same thespian-laden team from our 2001 & 2004-2005 Tuesday leagues?), and Smylie Brothers Swingers (could that be Tommy Nevin's/Swingers with a new captain?).  We'll no doubt learn more about these teams as the season unfolds...stay tuned.   

See you out there!
