Benny Baseball Tournaments: Tuesday June 5th & Saturday, July 28th
This day is for all Benny players to come out mix and mingle with the players from other teams. We create teams by throwing in the gloves of everybody that shows up, depending on how many show up we use both diamonds. To make it more exciting we either play a few rounds or recreate teams by throwing in the gloves again, the choice is up to the players. We usually sell hotdogs, pop and water to keep everyone refreshed and full of energy for the next round. Come on out, its fun for all!
Benny Baseball Playoff Finals: Saturday, September 8th
For the playoff finals we start at 12 pm with the consolation final. The Consolation final is where the 2 ‘best of the worst’ teams show down to determine which team is the better of the bottom. The winners get an award at the banquet.
Then at 2 pm it comes down the the ‘best of our best’ and the top 2 teams, battle it out for first and second place in our playoffs for the 2018 season. So even if your not playing you don’t want to miss the action, so come out, cheer on a team and have some fun.
At 4pm or just after the last playoff game we have our annual Wobbly Bowl, just throw in your gloves to create the teams. Everyone fields and plays on your team at once. Bring your drinks (Pop, Water, Sports Drink etc.) onto the field because they are part of the play. You have to catch and throw the ball without putting your drink down at all! When your up at bat the pitcher tries to knock down your drink with a high arch thrown ball, you better hit the ball or else you may have to finish your drink if it gets knocked over! Don’t forget to bring your drink with you as you take off for 1st base, because if you don’t you’ll have to go back to get it and it will cost you to drink as well. As you round the bases you must take a sip as you arrive at and leave each base, if you don’t the penalty may be to back track and do the ‘sip base sip’ again as you leave the bases. Just as your getting use to the game and things are going your way, be prepared because the rules may change all of a sudden just to throw you off, but of course all in the name of fun!
