Piety Hill Musings

The ramblings of the 52 year old Rector of St. John's Episcopal Church of Detroit. Piety Hill refers to the old name for our neighborhood. The neighborhood has changed a great deal in the over 150 years we have been on this corner (but not our traditional biblical theology) and it is now known for the neighboring theatres, the professional baseball and football stadiums and new hockey/basketball arena.

Sam and Andrew's team had their final game Saturday, before the playoffs begin next weekend.

They only needed a win to secure at least a tie for first place. All other 7 teams have at least one more game this week, but due to the way the schedule was done, we are done.

We played the Rangers, one of four teams to beat us this year (the other three each beat us once and we beat them once). In the second inning, Andrew hit an in-the-park GRAND SLAM, putting us ahead 4-0. By the 5th inning it was 10 nothing Giants, and the final was 10-2. It was really exciting and I am so proud of Andrew! Of course, this earned him the game ball.

Now we are at least tied for first place. With the way the tie-breaker works, if the other team with only 4 losses wins the next game, we still are seeded first in the play offs since the first tie-breaker is one an one game (each team we lost to we also beat once too), and then the next tie-breaker is least number of total runs allowed in the season - and with our pitches we have the lowest total in the league, period.

It has been a very exciting season, but the 'season' that count starts next weekend with the play-offs!
