Barristers Plead for Reversal
It was a tournament for the ages. The weather was perfect, dry and not too hot, which was a good thing for the Barristers who forgot their cooler. The annual Barristers Club v. Douglas County Attorneys Softball Tourney at Dill Field on August 7 proved to be more than a little confusing. The Barristers couldn’t quite field a team and their pitcher was nowhere to be seen. The D.C. Attorneys graciously offered to share some players, and pitcher Don Kleine agreed to pitch for both sides. The first game was no pitchers’ duel, with the final score 15-13 in favor of the Barristers. Looking for a quick wrap-up to the best two-out-of-three series, the Barristers quickly enlisted late-arrival Judge Mike Coffey to pitch for them. Despite being overdressed, he agreed, but after a valient effort the D.C. Attorneys proved to be too much, winning the second game 18-5, (called after 5 innings due to the mercy rule). The rubber match saw the D.C. Attorneys invoking the mercy rule again as they wrapped up the series (no one could remember the final score). So, the D.C. Attorneys were victorious, AGAIN if you believe them, as they claim they won last year despite the Barristers being (erroneously?) declared the winner. Winners (pictured above) and losers alike adjourned to Tiger Tom’s, whose owner is the father of D.C. Attorney Kristen Lynch, to celebrate their victory /drown their sorrows.
