The WOBC Rohirrim (A Softball Team) defeat Suang Mansion 12-10 in Season Opener

WOBC Rohirrim

Arise now, arise, Riders of Théoden!
Fell deeds awake: fire and slaughter!
spear shall be shaken, shield be splintered,
a sword-day, a red day, ere the sun rises!
Ride now, ride now! Ride to Gondor!
Ride now, ride now! Ride to Gondor!

And with those words, the WOBC Rohirrim, a ragtag bunch of softball players who might just have what it takes, began their season.

The opponents, the Fanged Banshees (or, as they insisted on being called, Suang Mansion), were admirable, but were nevertheless easily dispatched. Also, we play with swords and ride horses, which SOME might argue give us an advantage. Those SOME have been SPOKEN WITH (i.e. sworded).

Down 9-6 in the bottom of the Sixth, with two on and two out, Catcher and WOBC Treasurer Will Floyd made an amazing snag on a fouled third strike, spurring the team into action.

In the top of the 7th the Rohirrim unleashed their fury scoring 6 runs on amazing hitting by DJ’s Scott Goodwin (ASTROFRACTALS/ DANKGNARR), Brian Becker (Bumps), Josh Davidson (Shout Bamalama!), and Peter Freeman (World of Wrestling). Station Manager Jesse Montgomery added a hit and some stellar base-running, while Miami slugger and Operations Manager Leo Famulari connected on an extra-base hit.

Clutch at-bat of the night: DJ Melissa Decker (My Heart is Full) worked the count and drove in the game-tying run, bringing her lifetime total of Runs Batted In (RBI) to one.

FINAL SCORE: WOBC ROHIRRIM 12, FANGED BANSHEES 10.

Next game is Friday afternoon, more details forthcoming.
GO ROHIRRIM!
