Mayor Peduto Slated to Throw First Pitch

21 Jul

The 60th Mayor of Pittsburgh will throw the first pitch during tomorrow’s first round playoff matchups.

History will be made at the wiffle diamond in Shadyside tomorrow, as Bill Peduto, the Mayor of Pittsburgh, will be in attendance to throw out the first pitch prior to the start of the regularly scheduled playoff games. The Mayor plans to unleash his “mean, left-handed wiffle curve” as the stars of the Ellsworth Wiffleball League look on. Fans and former EWL players are invited to attend what will go down as one of the most important wiffle events in wiffle history.

Questionable Outfit holds a 2-1 series lead in the best-of-five wiffle series against Eastbound & Dahn. The strong favorites to win the title heading into the playoffs, Questionable looks to advance to the Wiffle Series for the second consecutive year. Eastbound & Dahn stunned Questionable Outfit in the opener of the series, and they hope to win two straight games to pull off the greatest upset the league has seen to date.

Cookies & Cream are ahead of the Ham Slams 2-1 in their best-of-five first round matchup. The series has went back and forth with Cookies & Cream winning games 1 and 3 easily and the Ham Slams controlling the scoring in game 2. Cookies & Cream are the defending champions of the EWL and will attempt to become the first repeat champions, while the Ham Slams hope to advance past the first round for the first time in franchise history.

Wiffle action starts at 6:30PM sharp and will go until approximately 8:30PM.
