Round 3 of the 2016 Thunder Road Brewing Co. Victorian Fistball League has been announced for Saturday 7th May at 12.30pm.
F18 will be hosted by the Westside Wombats at Barclay Reserve, Albion. The home of the Sunshine Eagles Baseball Club.
The Bay City Fisters hold a slender lead atop the table after the first two rounds of the season and will be looking to continue their strong early season form. They are being closely followed by last seasons premiers the Fist & The Furious just 2 points in arrears with perennial powerhouse the Fistroy Lions a further point back in thrid position. With a 3rd and 4th place to their names thus far Fist Club FC are still well and truly in the hunt and will be hoping to break the Darren Millane curse and make it past the semis this time around (too soon?).
After finally breaking their fistivus duck (with a little help from the Fistroy Lions) Das Fist have moved up into the unfamiliar position of third last. Fielding largely inexperienced squads the Westside Wombats and newcomers FistStorm are tied for 6th place and locked in a fierce battle to avoid the dreaded Wooden Spoon (or perhaps just tanking for draft picks). Both teams will be looking for a stronger showing in Rd 3 and will be hoping to move up the ladder.
As it is a 12.30pm start there will be no BBQ but there will be drinks available at genuine 1972 prices as is the norm.
If anyone is keen to get there early for a bit of a warm up and some practice the Australian Women’s Fistball Team will be conducting training from 10am so any help would be greatly appreciated.
