Sanibel Softball League: Sanctuary Island Electric stuns Great White Grill

By Staff | Apr 29, 2009

Last Thursday night at the Sanibel ball fields, Sanctuary Island Electric jolted the top-ranked Great White Grill in a spectacular upset that sent shockwaves throughout the Sanibel Softball League.

Great White Grill entered the game holding the hottest win streak in the league with seven wins. The only team to beat them so far has been – and remains – the Sanctuary Island Electric.

Great White Grill’s captain, Joe Ramsey, claimed, “Our dorsal fins were a little off tonight. Sanctuary just got lucky.” But Brian Hayes of Sanctuary Electric replied, “This game was like ‘Jaws 2’ when the shark gets electrocuted to death.”

The game was close, having four lead changes throughout its course. But in the end, Sanctuary Island Electric won, 12-10.

In the other games of the week, the Sundial played their arch-rival the Dunes. The Sundial, still trying to get their first win, proved to be about as successful as Sanibel is of getting rid of the Brazilian Pepper. The Dunes won 25-5.

Also, Doc Ford’s Wrecking Crew put the ol’ ball and chain to the Dirtbaggers, winning 26-7 and Biddle’s Bucket carved up All Island Glass, 18-9.

There are only three weeks left of the regular season. Only the top four teams will make the post-season so the race is on.

Next week’s matchups will feature The Dirtbaggers vs. Great White Grill, the Dunes vs. All Island Glass, Biddle’s Bucket vs. Bailey’s and The Sundial vs. Sanctuary Island Electric.

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