Boys of Summer
This is the fourth year teams have competed for the title in the Boys of Summer Yahoo! League. This year we expanded the league to include a Team from Cleveland – the Cleveland Steamers – who jumped from Triple A ball to The Show. We now have an even 14 teams competing in the league this year. If we were able to split the teams into two divisions like the SEC we would. We will press the Yahoo! league office for this – for now we will continue to complete in a single winner take all format.
Trip Down Memory Lane
The past three seasons were very competitive, and we have seen changes to teams and managers both on and off the field. The League has grown Internationally to include teams competing from the United States, Canada, and now Singapore. The Los Malos Muchachos continue to complete as a representative from the Latin Community.
It’s is nice to see that the Canadians take time out from “Hockey Night in Canada” to complete in the league, and it is especially nice to see the names like Expos4Ever and The Mighty Montrealers each year. The Expos4Ever continue to be a team to beat each year – winning the league in two of the past three years. Nice to see someone remember the days of Gary Carter, Ellis Valentine, Andre Dawson, Tim (Rock) Rains and Al Oliver. Maybe someday we will see the Expos come back to Montreal.
Judging by the fireworks between teams at the start of the 2012 season, we should have another very competitive season.
Good Luck this year boys!
