Gotham Base Ball Club of New York vs Atlantic Base Ball Club of Brooklyn

October 15, 2011

Smithtown, New York

Rules: 1864

 

 

On this fine day the Gotham BBC of New York ventured forth from the

Island of Manhattan to take on their rivals the Atlantic BBC of

Brooklyn in their home field in Smithtown, NY.  The Atlantic BBC

brought out their best to make a good impression on the urbane dandies

of New York.  Our fair brethren of Brooklyn are really trying.  They

get an A for effort!

 

Game 1

One might comment on the Frankenstein nature of the Gotham BBC,

Mutuals and Resolutes abound, but one shouldn't.  The Gotham BBC

started the match with Monk's 1 base hit and multiple steals of bases.

 He would eventually score the ace on Scratch's 1 base hit.  The

Atlantic BBC scored 3 aces in the bottom of the frame.  In the top of

the 2nd frame, Huckleberry got on base.  Stacks hit to 2nd base

forcing Huckleberry off the field.  With 1 hand and Bugs at the line,

Stacks stole 2nd base.  With great gusto Stacks tried to steal 3rd

base.  Bugs, jealous of Stacks' base stealing acumen, decided he had

enough and intentionally foul tipped the ball to catcher.  After the 2

handed play, Bugs walked back to the mound loudly proclaiming "Icarus

HAS fallen!"  Neither team scored that frame.

 

In the 3rd frame, the Gotham BBC scored 0 aces and the Atlantic BBC

scored 1.  In the 4th frame, again the Gotham BBC scored 0 aces and

the Atlantic BBC scored 1.  In the 5th frame, the Gotham BBC scored 0

aces and the Atlantic BBC scored 4.  In the 6th frame, the Gotham BBC

scored 3 aces.  Doc hit a 1 base hit and scored on Quickstep's 1 base

hit.  Monk got out. Keystone got out.  Scratch hit a 1 base hit.

Quickstep ran to 3rd base.  Fingers hit a 1 base hit.  Quickstep ran

to 4th base.  The ball was thrown to the catcher and the ball flew out

of his hands.  Quickstep tripped right before the base,  he sat there

thinking frame over.  His teammates yelled at him touch the base, he

finally heard them and slapped the base.  He got up and Scratch almost

ran into as Scratch touched 4th base.  Phew, that was a tough 2 aces.

 

Throughout the match Huckleberry was gobbling up Toothpick's grounders

to 2nd base and tossing the ball to first to force the striker out.

In the bottom of the 7th frame, the Atlantic BBC's Toothpick was

finally able to get a on base by pounding the ball past the might

Huckleberry into the tree in right field.  The rest of the match the

Gotham BBC scored 0 aces and the Atlantic BBC scored 4.  The final

score was Gotham BBC 4 Atlantic BBC 14.

Atlantic BBC scored 5 aces.  In the bottom of the 6th frame, Dirt

flied out to Lip.

 

In the 7th frame, the Atlantic BBC scored 5 aces.  In the bottom of

the 7th frame, Stacks got his first hit of the game!  So what does he

do with this riches of offense, the fine reader is want to ask of her

or himself?  He strolls off first base, picking his cuticles, whoops

he rushes back to 1st base just in time.  Then he starts to dream

about adopting a puppy or maybe a unicorn and strolls off 1st base,

whoops he gets tagged out.  Needless to say, the Atlantic BBC are

a******s.

 

In the top of the 8th frame the Atlantic BBC scored 0 aces.  In the

bottom of the 8th frame the score was Gotham BBC 0 Atlantic BBC 18,

with 1 hand down and a man on 2nd, Scratch strode to the line.  This

my friends was what the Gotham BBC was playing for, Game Changer!  He

hit a massive shot to right field.  The Gotham BBC hooted and

hollered!  We are going to win.  Butcher ran back and casually caught

the ball 1 handed.  The Gotham BBC's match was over.  No team scored

in the 9th frame.  The final score was Gotham BBC 0 Atlantic BBC 18.
