The fifth edition of the EWL late-summer classic begins this evening

The fifth edition of the Ellsworth Wiffleball League Wiffle Series will begin today, as #1 seed Questionable Outfit will look to defend their 2014 championship against #3 seed and 2013 champions Cookies & Cream.

This year’s series has been dubbed the “Rubber Match” as these two teams are meeting to decide the championship for the third consecutive year. Cookies & Cream stunned Questionable Outfit in 2013, sweeping them to win the title. Last year, Questionable Outfit got revenge, as they topped Cookies & Cream in five games. This season, Questionable Outfit comes into the series as the heavy favorites as they attempt to become the first team in EWL history to repeat as champions.

Both rosters are loaded with wiffle veterans, and both teams are familiar with the wiffle diamond’s biggest stage. Joey, Dinger, Vassallo, and Guthrie will be playing in their fifth Wiffle Series, Blose in his fourth, and Bob, Mike, Reilly, and Mike in their third. Guthrie is a two-time Wiffle Series MVP, and Blose and Bob have each been named MVP of the championship series as well.

Games 1, 2, 3, and 4 will be played tonight, and if a team can sweep, a champion could be crowned tonight. The action starts at 6:30PM on the wiffle diamond in Shadyside on Ellsworth Ave.
