Hogs continue undefeated season
"C Squared" leads the way
with monster moon shot

The B.O.S Hogs were scheduled to play Salmon Nation on a balmy
November evening, but the Fish failed to show, choosing to swim
upstream rather than playing the fist place Board of Supes team,
giving the Hogs their 4th win of the season.
"The word must be out," said Hogs utility star John
Gavin. "The league knows our record and I think they may
The Hogs did get to play though, and dominated an overmatched
Barclays Global team 17 to 4.
The Hogs did not miss MVP candidate Sean Elsbernd (on his honeymoon),
John Avalos (tending to a sick child) or Amanda "Doozer"
Kahn (resting her graduate school brain) and coasted to a big
Cassandra "C-Squared" Costello mashed a moon shot into
the warm November air and cruised around the bases for the first
female homer of the year. Squared also played stellar defense
earning her the game ball and MVP honors for the night.
A modest Costello explained that she "could have hit the
ball better. I am just pumped to get my first dong of the year
and help the team continue our streak."
The Hogs pitched four players in the win. Boe Hayward earned
got the win for his 4th of the year. Boris Delepine, John Gavin
and Sarah Ballard, earning her first save of the season, relieved
Hayward showing the teams depth on the mound.
Angella "V-Neck" Calvillo showed her toughness and
dedication with a collision at first base. Calvillo slammed into
the base runner during the 4th inning. "I want the out no
matter what the situation is," exclaimed Calvillo. Calvillo
and the baserunner did not suffer injuries, but the Global batter
did seem to be despondent after the close play at first.
After coming up empty in the first two innings, the Hogs offense,
as they have become accustomed to do, exploded for 17 runs in
the next three innings. Costello's home run was all the team wanted
to talk about after the game.
"Are we surprised? Hell no. After seeing that hit, I think
that men are the ones that need Title IX programs," said
power hitting Hog Frances Hsieh.
Rob Black played a solid game and was, as always, a contributor
at the plate. Black drove in 3 runs on the night.
Judson True played a solid left field and may have found his
natural position on the field. After catching a deep fly to left,
True said that he knew that the ball was coming his way. "I
knew he was going to hit it to me and I am just glad that I was
positioned well. I have to thank Coach Elaine Forbes for telling
me where to be."
Boris Delepine showed his power stroke with a triple, double
and a single, driving in 4 runs. "I can't wait to tell Tolya
what his daddy did tonight." Leaving the field, Delepine
told reporters in his native tongue "bonne nuit et au revoir"
as he headed home for quality time with his family.
All in all, the Hogs have to be pleased after their 3-week layoff.
The Hogs haven't missed a beat and are ready for their final two
games of the season. The Hogs have mathematically clinched a tie
for first in the league, but the team is not looking ahead to
"We are taking this one game at a time and we want to finish
the season strong. I hope the 1972 Miami Dolphins are paying attention,"
said Catcher Lisa Williams-Black referencing the last professional
sports team that finished a season with an undefeated record.
The Hogs also featured star sub Jamie McGoldrick. Jamie played
great defense and also smashed a triple to deep left. "I
just wish I hit it as far as my lady," referencing his power
hitting girlfriend who later drove him in with a sacrifice fly
The Hogs plan on having Elsbernd, Avalos and Doozer Kahn for
their next game.
