2014 EWL Wiffler of the Year Bob poses with EWL commissioner Joey after throwing out the ceremonial first pitch of the 2015 season.

The EWL celebrated its fifth anniversary Tuesday, as the Opening Day ceremonies were held at the wiffle diamond in Shadyside. The two-time defending EWL Wiffler of the Year, Bob (’13, ’14), threw out the first pitch for the second consecutive year, as Joey, EWL founder and commissioner caught the ball behind home plate.

The EWL looks the same and different in 2015. Multiple field orientations will be used, and the plate has been moved several feet back to extend the field.

The first pitch of the fifth season of the Ellsworth Wiffleball League.

Questionable Outfit, the defending champs, return three starters as well as welcoming back Mike, a key part of their 2013 team.

Cookies & Cream return all five starters from their 2014 squad, and they also hope to add Les, who played for the Caucasians in 2011 and ’12.

Eastbound & Dahn return five starters and have added one of the greatest players in league history to their lineup in Morrison, who is playing for his fourth team in five years.

And finally, the Ham Slams return two starters while adding four rookies, the biggest influx of new talent in EWL history.

It should be a great season on the wiffle diamond. Stay tuned for game recaps, stats, photos, and more.
