Saturday night special!

Titans vs SWAT

If last week was any indication, the future road looks bleed for the once mighty Titans. SWAT is on a roll, and are not looking to take a breather just yet. Titans let an opportunity sleep away last week. If there's anytime to do something, the time is now. Otherwise people will wonder if this will be panic time for Titan softball...

D. Eagles vs Empire

So far in this short season, D. Eagles have played well but have yet risen any eyebrows. Empire coming in confident and looking to go 6-2. D. Eagles offense is capable, the question is will there defense will them to a split? Or maybe even a competitive sweep?

Grays vs Wolfpack

Wolfpack have fallen into a little rut going winless in their last 4 battles. Grays are looking to avoid a negative momentum of losing. Some may see this as a one sided affair in Wolfpacks favor, but don't sleep on Grays, they have a solid core surrounded by respectable role players. We'll see how these two will react vs one another.

Outlaws vs PSR

First time these two will ever face each other. One team can't be any more of a mystery than the other with each other. Outlaws are drueling to get back on winning track after last weekends extra inning debunker vs Force. Verdict is PSR is not the same as last year, coming up solid vs this Outlaw squad will prove the nay sayers wrong...

Pitch Slap vs Force

Force is most certainly going to try to feed off of last weeks successful weekend vs the undefeated Outlaws... Pitch Slap will try to get back on track after last weekends disappointment.

Pros vs Dynasty

Pros are looking to be in mid-season form earlier than some thought. Dynasty surprised a few with their sweep of the Titans. You have two teams coming off successful games last weekend and looking to build. This will be a good benchmark for both teams to see where they stand amongst the rest of the league...

Dream Team vs Softballers

Softballers are clearly back on track after their season opener disappointment. Dream Team facing the defending champs know they have their hands full. The only thing that seems to be going for them is the surprise factor. And who knows maybe they can surprise the whole league by sneaking in a W if Ballers are caught sleeping...


Any given Sunday

SWAT vs D. Eagles

Can the old legs of SWAT hold up during a 4 game weekend? If so can the questionable defense of the Eagles hold up against SWATs offense? SWAT atleast on paper has an edge in majority of categories over D. Eagles. Fatigue may be key in this series...

PSR vs Titans

Again, for the Titans this may be the most important weekend in the teams history. At 2-6 they obviously can not afford an 0-4 weekend. 2-2 may be acceptable but the guys over in Titanland know anything less than 100% will not be tolerated. And at this point, can't afford to be...

Dream Team vs Pros

Pros have an opportunity to be an 8-2 squad after this weekend. Faizan and company will stop at nothing to accomplish that. Will Dream Team defiantly stand in front of this train or will they just step over and let Pros have their way?

Empire vs Softballers

GOTW, nuff said

Pitchslap vs Wolfpack

A possible rivalry in the making with many former team mates facing one another for the first time since last seasons success when all were just Wolfpack. Since the break up will we be able to tell if Wolfpack are better off? Or did the guys who left to form Pitch Slap made the right move? Time will tell

Grays vs Force

On paper Grays are the better team over Force. So were the Outlaws and we know what happened there. Can Force pull off a surprise and become the leagues "Any Given Sunday" spoilers?

Outlaws vs Dynasty

The only original teams remaining in the league are facing one another for the first time since 2009. Outlaws are looking to continue their roll as Dynasty is still trying to figure itself out with all the new comers... Amit, Kyd and company still got it, but can the rest of the team help carry some load vs the Outlaws? If so expect a competitive series, if they don't come through this may be over before it even begins...

SASL Week 5 - Game of the Week : Empire (4-2) vs Softballers (4-2) Ė Cantiague Park, Field A, 1:30 PM

This is a rematch that the Ballers have had circled on their calenders for a while as they are looking to make a statement against the team that they felt they should have beaten for the fall championship. Empire is looking to show that they are an even better team from the fall season and that they belong amongst the leagues elite.

Empire

This team is mostly the same from the fall champion Falldogs squad that was able to beat the Ballers in the fall finals after they went down 0-1 in the series. They displayed great team chemistry and excellent defense during their title run. With this Empire squad they feel they have a better team and that they belong amongst the leagues elite. The first week they faced a Force team which they utterly dominated, they then played 2 great games against the Outlaws. After falling in a hole against the Outlaws 15 runs in the first 4 innings, they gave up 1 run in the final 3 innings of game 1, and held the Outlaws to 6 runs in the first 4 inning before squandering the lead in the last inning. Empire started off slowly against Dream Team but their bats finally woke up as they continued to play some good defense out there. Empire has an interesting matchup on Saturday vs Desert Eagles which may turn into a slugfest. With a great weekend, Empire can show the league that they have a good a shot as anyone to win a title this year.

Softballers

In the fall the Ballers went undefeated in the regular season and only had 1 loss going into the championship game against the Falldogs (mainly Empire). After taking a 1-0 lead they thought they had the title in the bag, but they lost it. Some people believe that they showed a kink in their armor and some vulnerability in their mystique. The Ballers will say it was fall and that isnít the same, and they are correct, but losing in any finals should motivate any team, which it has. The Ballers played an uncharacteristically sloppy game against the Outlaws week 1 (who also swept Empire). After a long lay off, Usman was able to rally the troops. The Ballers were playing 2 teams they havenít played before in PSR and PitchSlap. They were able to mercy PSR in game 1, but had to hang on to beat PSR in game 2 for a 1 run victory. The Ballers were in a tough game against PitchSlap narrowly taking game 1. As the Ballers are known for, they made their adjustments and were able to mercy PitchSlap in game 2. Softballs should have no trouble with Dream Team on Saturday, but the level of competition will be greatly increased on Sunday as they want to show the league that the anyone vying for a title has to go through them.

Empire

Pitching- Atif has settled into his new role of pitching very well. He was on the mound in the finals as he did a great job of keeping the Ballers off balance. Last week when Empire were missing some starters, Razi did great job against Dream Team getting ahead of hitters and fielded his position very well. Who will Empire go with?

Infield-Chris Mui anchors the SS position who flashes great range with a great arm as well, as the Ballers have seen firsthand. Zahid is continuing to show improvements at 2B every single week. Chris and Zahid up the middle can cover a lot of ground in the holes and up the middle which can make a huge difference this week. Pete and Jason are both sure handed 3B, but donít have as much range as a Chris or Atif over there. They will make all the plays that are in their vicinity. Razi is a versatile defender who is capable of playing any of the IF positions, if need be. Their 1B situation has some uncertainty as they have had a bunch of different players play the position.

Outfield- The middle of the diamond again is rock solid with Harpreet in LCF and Shazad in RCF. Both are have great arms with great range. Vinod is solid in the field but doesnít have a greatest of arms. Ifran who missed week 1, has played some good defense in the field showing off his good arm out in RF.

Keys to Victory- Both teams will definitely be riled up for this matchup as the adrenaline will be flowing and the emotions will run high. Itís important that Empire gets out to a quick lead (as they are the away team in game 1), to show the Ballers what they are in for in 14 innings of tough softball. The bottom of Empireís lineup will have to get hits, or at least get on base to turn the lineup over to get back to the meat of the lineup to inflict maximum amounts of damage. Empire will need to continue to play great defense as they have all year and to limit the big innings as that was what cost them against the Outlaws.

Softballers

Pitching- Ali G is arguably the best pitcher in SASL. He is a crafty pitcher who has a plethora of pitches along with his patented quick pitch techniques that makes hitters uncomfortable at the plate. Infield- They are lead at SS by Zeeshan who still has a lot left in his tank. Besides being their emotional leader he can still pick it at SS and has great awareness on the field. His double play mate Nabeel isnít that rangy, but when its hit to him he will make the plays. Ahmad talks a big game, but he can back it up with a great arm and solid glove, his doesnít have too much range over there but definitely a plus defender at the hot corner. Newcomer Joe is anchoring 1B, and just by looks you think he canít play defense but he is a good defensive 1B, showing nimble feet and picks the ball very good as well.

Outfield-
This has been a matchup that the league has looked forward to since the preseason, the fall champion vs the spring champion. There will be a lot of intensity on both sides as they each are looking to make a statement not only to the other team but to the whole league as well. If these games are as close and entertaining as the finals were in the fall, the spectators should be in for a treat!
