1999 Post Season re-visited (Blue vs Gold : Red vs Teal)

1999 Playoff History RePlay:  ROUND TWO

Sunday October 17th (1999) was a beautiful day.  The games were able to start on time at 9:00 AM with the Cupboard Blue and the Teamsters Gold doing battle to see who advanced to the finals of the losers bracket against the loser of the game between the Peterbilt Reds and the Razor’s Edge Teal.

The Teamsters Gold team took an early lead and appeared to have the game in hand but the “Battling Blue Boys” kept pecking away at the Gold until they finally blew the game open in the bottom of the 8th inning.  The Gold team was bitterly disappointed when they lost a game they could have won.  But errors and hustle by the Blue Team sent the Golden boys to the stands to be spectators for the remainder of the tournament.

In the second game, the Peterbilt Reds played a strong game against the Razor’s Edge Teal team due to effective pitching from starter and winner, David Kelly.  But David needed relief support from Jerry Weaver to seal the victory.  Jerry worked out of a major threat from the Teal team in the bottom of the 8th inning.  With the bases loaded and two outs, Jerry Weaver was able to get Pedro Arrechea to bounce a grounder to Chris Hughes at third base who threw Pedro out to shut down the rally. The final score was 4-3 and both teams left the field elated that they probably participated in one of the greatest games in HDL history (at that point).  Both teams made clutch play after clutch play to stop the other team from having a big inning.  This was a game we all dream of playing in.

Larry this was one of the two games I told you about.  David threw 4 and 1/3

  innings in a 9 inning game. I threw the last 4 and 2/3.  I told Winn to give the win to David then he did not play anymore.  This game would have made me 9-5 the team was 10-13.
