The 2016 Ellsworth Wiffleball League Wiffle Series Championship commences tonight at 6:30PM at the Wiffle Diamond in Shadyside as Questionable Outfit will face off against rivals Cookies & Cream in a best-of-seven series to determine the league champion. Two-time defending champions Questionable Outfit, led by three-time defending Wiffler of the Year Bob, will look to become the first team to three-peat as EWL champs. Cookies & Cream, the 2013 EWL champions, will look to avenge losses to Questionable Outfit in the past two Wiffle Series.

In it’s 6th year of existence, the Ellsworth Wiffleball League is a four team adult wiffleball league in Shadyside. The 20-game regular season begins in May, and a champion is crowned in August. The 2016 season is nearing a conclusion, and the champion will be decided in a best-of-seven series with Questionable Outfit serving as the home team for games 1, 2, 5, and 7.

Cookies & Cream defeated the Ham Slams in game 5 of their best-of-five first round series to advance to the 2016 Wiffle Series. Their opponents, Questionable Outfit, were the 2016 regular season EWL Pennant winners and swept Eastbound & Dahn in their first round series to advance to the title series. Cookies & Cream and Questionable Outfit met seven times in the regular season, with Questionable Outfit winning the season series 4-3. The series was tied 3-3 heading into the final game of the regular season, when Cookies & Cream led late but succumbed to a Questionable Outfit comeback that clinched the #1 seed and pennant.

Questionable Outfit boasts a powerful offense led by Wiffler of the Year candidate Bob, one of the league’s most dangerous hitters in Tom, EWL Pitch King candidate Miller, and one of the game’s finest fielders, Mike.

Cookies & Cream has a consistent offense and a strong pitching attack led by Pitch King candidate Guthrie, the game’s most feared hitter Blose, a hobbled veteran in Joey, rookie Jordan, and one of league’s most clutch hitters Dinger.

The first four games of the series will take place tonight, and barring a sweep, the series will conclude next week.
