You know it is mid to late October when a motley collection of middle age wifflers battle upon the wiffle fields of central Vermont with the singular goal of drinking from Lord Wiffle’s Chalice. Those that guzzle from the dented and cherished Chalice are decided by a combination of strategy, desire, talent, perseverance and luck. Occasionally along the way the dedicated wiffle fan will lay witness to a page of history printed in real time. Wifftober 8 had it all, the fully loaded plastic pizza, a modern classic. Here’s how it went down.Read more

While the first and the last pitches of Wifftober VII may have come from the hands of rookies, the game in between was covered with the greasy fingerprints of LowBall legends. It was a game ripe with controversy and intrigue, tense battles and epic performances. It was game with details hidden between the lines of the box score (if one existed). It was a game truly worthy of the sacred Wifftober badge. It was Wifftober VII.Read more

On a fine Saturday morning upon the lush lawns of the Friendly Confines, El Guapo showed off his renewed focus, dominating all sides of the field. Despite a collection of wiffle vets and young upstarts, El Guapo easily separated himself. He crushed an early dinger off of the Western One and then added another off the Black Cloud in the late innings to buffer the lead. Finally, in his relished positioned as closer, El Guapo shut down the opposition and sealed the win and his first spin in the Green Jacket (if it can be located).

With the victory, it looks as if the turbulent times of the Guap are in the past and he is primed for a chance to guzzle from the sacred Chalice of LowBall.

"We are few, but we play for many
We play for our brothers sitting in minivans in traffic on the way to the in-laws
We play for our brothers wandering the halls of Bed Bath and Beyond in search of curtains
Yes, we play for all the downtrodden middle age men who know not of ridiculous fun but only of bills and responsibility
Today, we make this Declaration of Wiffdependence and resolve to fight year after year, game after game. Yes, we shall fight, we shall fight for our right to wiffle
As you take this field of battle you shall not fear any Dark Clouds, nor an Ox and Show, you shall not fear any Ghosts of El GuapoRead more

The air was thick with smoke, illuminated by the lights of the Friendly Confines, El Guapo paced behind the mound as the Black Cloud paraded through his pre batting ritual. The count was full, the bases loaded, and Guapo was one out away from capping a scoreless three innings of work, his finest pitching in recent memory. It does not get much more LowBall, the Season I player of the year staring down the reigning LowBaller of the Year. The anxious home crowd held their collective breath as Guapo hurled a near perfect rising curve. Somehow the Clouded One managed to get a touch of plastic on the pitch sending what seemed like the thousandth foul into the tall grass. The battle would finally end in a walk and the only run scored on El Guapo on the evening.Read more

Following the 2-2 defensive stand-off at Wiffmorial, Burnham Field once again lived up to its Pitcher +2 rating. The defensive precision that has defined the past two contests was exemplified by an early highlight reel snag by Bento Box. The reigning Rookie of the Year showed off the same thievery that landed him the award in robbing a double that could have broke the game wide open. The visiting Lagers would jump out to a sizeable four run lead bolstered by a solo straight away center shot from the Darkest of Clouds, estimated by Gordon Wiffnoski to be a 99 ft blast. The Mad Scientist continued to be lights out from the mound, totally four scoreless innings in his inaugural season.Read more

On a day ripe with controversy and intrigue, the world famous LowBall league saw a first, a tie game. While there were mixed emotions concerning the outcome, the epicocity was not debated. It would be easy to surmise a simple pitcher's battle if one were to only look at the theoretical stats. However, buried under the numbers was a masterpiece layered with defensive super plays.

In an interesting start to play, the two rookies, The Show and The Scientist, chose teams in a secret draft that landed The Surgeon, Black Cloud, and Lonichiro on the same team for the first time since prohibition.

The stars of LowBall turned out to celebrate the start of the sixth season of tall socks and warm beer. After some brief, but meaningful words from the Supreme Commissioner, play commenced. It didn't take long for the riveting action that has made LowBall famous to take hold. J-Mac had worked on his batting routine all winter, integrating an odd wrist roll and bat poke. The fruits of his offseason work paid quickly as he sent the little plastic ball into the tall grass as the lead-off batter of the game. After that things are unclear as stats are still outlawed in the land of LowBall, however it is known that Ox continued knock out pitching, Black Cloud sent two over the fence and The Show showed off his big swing with a drifted dinger.Read more
