Sanibel Softball League: Battle of the Baggers rematch

By Staff | Apr 22, 2009

The epic rematch of the Dirtbaggers and Bailey’s Baggers, appropriately dubbed “Battle of the Bags,” took place last Thursday night. It was everything – and more – we have come to expect from these two lovable teams. Full of big hits, great catches (and spectacularly comical drops), miffs and fumbles the game was an umpire’s worst nightmare.

Bailey’s, trailing all game long, in the last inning finally caught up by getting seven runs. In the end, seven innings weren’t enough. The game ended in a high scoring finale, 24-24.

In the other games of the week, Doc Ford’s Wrecking Crew emptied out Biddle’s Bucket, 22-4; Great White Grill mauled The Sundial, 39-18; and Sanctuary Island Electric zapped All Island Glass, 21-6.

The Sanibel Adult Softball League plays every Wednesday and Thursday night at the Sanibel Ball Fields. For more information, contact the Sanibel Recreation Center at 472-0345.
