The Ellsworth Wiffleball League returned on May 1, 2012, as the Fish Sticks, the Caucasians, Downtown Bobby Brown (formerly Pumice on Slow!) and the Ham Slams united at the Wiffle Diamond on Ellsworth Avenue to begin the 2012 season.  Three of the four games were decided by a single run; the fourth game was decided by two.  It was a fantastic start to a long season that will run past Independence Day and will end with a Wiffle Champion.

Week 1 results and recaps can be found below; stats and box scores can be found to the right.

Voting for the Pabst Blue Ribbon Wiffler of the Week is available by clicking on the poll to the right.

God Bless America, and God Bless Wiffleball

“It is played everywhere. In wiffle parks and playgrounds and prison yards. In back alleys and farmers’ fields. By small children, college students, dentists, and lawyers and unemployed adults. Raw amateurs and wiffle pros. It is a leisurely game that demands blinding speed. The only game in which the defense has the ball. It follows the seasons, beginning each year with the fond expectancy, smog, and rain of Pittsburgh springtime, and ending with the hard facts of an uncomfortable, humid summer. It is a haunted game, in which every player is measured against the ghosts of all who have gone before. Most of all, it is about time and timelessness. Speed and grace. Failure and loss. Imperishable hope. And coming home. Wiffle on.”       – William Pitt
