Heavy Hitters Head into Playoffs as Team to Beat in Co-ed Softball

Mar 24, 2017 03:59PM ● Published by Bowe Fertig

The 10-game regular season is in the books for the Winter Co-ed Softball League on Tuesday nights. The playoffs come with a new slate as all eight teams make the playoffs, and the single-elimination structure allows any team’s best day to move on to the next round.

The Winter session has been one of the more competitive seasons in recent history, but the Heavy Hitters still remain the league’s best team going a perfect 10-0. The Heavy Hitters, sponsored by Coronado Brewing Company in Imperial Beach, scored 136 runs, second most in the league, but had the best run differential in the league allowing a league’s best 55 runs. Jerry Moreno, manager of second place Hit Squad, has produced quality teams the past few seasons but this year’s squad gives Moreno his best chance at a title scoring the most runs, 144, this season.

The No.3 seed through No.6 seed was separated by one game. Each one of the four teams have played in previous seasons and have brought in new talent. The No.5 seed Unknowns have finished second the past couple seasons and understand what it takes to get to the Championship Game.

The first week of playoffs start with Sons of Pitches trying to topple Heavy Hitters in what would be the biggest upset in recent seasons. The 7:00 pm game has one of the hottest teams, No.7 Victorious Secret, who won the Championship Game two weeks ago in another Co-ed League, playing No.2 Hit Squad. No.3 seed Bat Attitudes provide great talent combined with youth and experience at the Co-ed Softball level. They will take on a veteran team the Scoreboard Hot Shots at 8:00 pm. The game of the night will take place at 9:00 pm as the No.4 seed Land Graphics battle The Unknowns. They have played each other already twice this season. Week 1 ended in a 15-15 tie and Land Graphics pulled off a 13-11 win in Week 9. The 4-5 match up shapes up to be the best of the night.
