The Season 8 Video Recap

The LowPress, in collusion with El Cloud Productions, is proud to release the first LowBall video in two seasons. The Season 8 recap takes the viewer on a journey of wiffle magic unlike any video since the last video. A local man on the street was quoted as saying, "so you guys don't even run the bases?" Countless other reviews have been just as vibrant and positive. El Cloud scoured the recesses of the internet to find the perfect musical complement to this visual smorgasbord. Having come up empty, they settled on a rare Russian polka metal cover of the pop hit "Wake Me Up" by Russkaja. We suggest that you watch the video while chopping onions, that way if you tear up uncontrollably in the middle sappy section, you can blame it on the onions.Read more

The Guapo Decision

El Guapo took to local access cable today, in an attempt to raise money for his charity Guapo's Bobble Belly Soup Kitchen, and announced that he would be taking his talents to South Portland. Despite weeks of speculation, including confirmation from the miniature horse from Wifftober II, a close personal friend of El Guapo's, the LowBall nation collectively stood in shock. Some of the more reactionary fans proceeded to burn their ill tailored white Lager jerseys while others, including I, famed wiffle journalist Hugh S. Wifflerton, just openly sobbed into their High Lifes. It would seem the #StayGuap twitter campaign was of little consequence.Read more

Soul Wiffle Month

The LowPress would like to remind you that July is SOUL Wiffle month. You are encouraged to celebrate the backyard roots of our beloved sport by "wiffling where you find yourself." This mantra is especially important during the extended allstar break when a wiffler may be tempted to let the edge off their world class plastic skills.

Since launching the "Wiffle Where You Find Yourself" campaign at last season's Wiffle Scramble, we have received many questions concerning appropriate times to wiffle. We hope the below guide will be of aid in your decision process.

I am at the dentist, about to go under to have my massive overbite fixed, should I wiffle?
No, this would be a poor choice as your motor skills will be dulled.Read more

Ciudad Trujillo – The best baseball team you’ve never heard of.

The winter leagues were a place where players were not known for the color of their skin or where they were from. For decades, Negro League players and their brothers from Mexico, Puerto Rico, the Dominican Republic and Venezuela were all equal – playing along side such greats as Roberto Clemente for Santurce in Puerto Rico.

There was one team however that had unparalleled star power.

In 1937, the Ciudad de Trujillo squad was one of the best in baseball history. Negro League greats Satchel Paige, Josh Gibson and Cool Papa Bell joined forces with Cuban greats Silvio Garcia and manager Lazaro Salazar to form and unbelievable roster.

Los Dragones called Trujillo, Dominican Republic home.Read more

How 19 Giant Earthmovers Carved Dodger Stadium Out of a Mountain

They literally moved mountains to create Dodger Stadium. Between 1959 and 1962, an army of construction workers shifted eight-million cubic yards of earth and rock in the hills above downtown Los Angeles, refashioning the rugged terrain once known as the Stone Quarry Hills into a modern baseball palace.Read more
