Here’s an old WiffleUp! flyer that we found in high school. It was posted on a corkboard outside the guys locker room….13 years ago. Junior year. We played in the New Haven tournament that year…behind Yale Field. It was a beautiful day…until the wiffle started. I don’t think anyone on our team even got a hit…never mind scored a run or won a game. That day was a real eye-opener as to what competitive wiffle ball was all about. We were the best of the best in neighborhood games…yet the worst of the worst against people who came out for the competitive circuit…playing for $$$ was a whole new ballgame. One team that we got crushed by was “In the Box”, captained by Tom Locascio.
We entered the tourney under the team name “First ta Fight”. This was the farm team that eventually became “Boondock Saints”.
