"We started off pretty slow at the beginning", said Brian 'Coach Whipcheck' Freeman, "but I knew we would pull it off at the end!".
Playing 2 games every Sunday for the last 5 weeks in a one pitch format, the Blasters never gave up and triumphed as a major underdog in the playoffs.
"Winning our very first game was huge, especially after coming off a 5-5 spring season and barely missing the spring playoffs," stated Coach Whipcheck, "then losing our next 7 in a row was tough. And tougher than that is when you are in every game until the end. But such is softball, one bad bounce and it’s over."
