(November 8, 2018 – Dallas, TX) The NTABL fall baseball seasons for both Brazos and Trinity Divisions completed it’s collective face-plant this past week as yet another rain out made it nearly 3 straight weeks without playing baseball for the Spirits (35+) and one game played for the Spirits (18+) squad.
Rains in the past two weeks have demonized the ability to play baseball in the metroplex and with a lack of turf fields available for the adult league to play on, the combination proved fatal for a fall season of baseball that really had no momentum or appeal to begin with.
“What can you do?” commented Club Manager and President, Shawn Lee. “The league is sent scrambling to find us fields after it rains and then of course, you have every select, high school and kiddie team in the country needing a field to play on. Guess who they care about playing on their fields last, if at all? Yep. Us. So it’s all good. There’s not a finger to point, however this adds an exclamation point to me personally on the need for fall baseball altogether. We’re in such a rush to close down the summer season and we see games are cut, playoffs are rushed. The experience is getting a little frustrating and we need to make a change. I plan on bringing it up at this year’s meetings.”
The Spirits (18+) squad (5-3) finished as the number five seed and will host the North Dallas Blue Sox (2-7) at First Baptist Academy on the south side of Dallas, near the border of Mexico starting at 1:00PM. You can click here for schedule details.
For the Spirits (35+) squad (6-0-1), they finish as the number one seed and they’ll play host to the Royals Baseball Club who failed to show up with a team the last time the two squads were scheduled. That game is also scheduled at First Baptist Academy starting at 5:30PM and you can click here for those schedule details. No passport is required to travel to this game.
