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.

Playoffs start tomorrow

The Double AA Grosse Pointe Park Little League Playoffs start tomorrow. Our team, the Giants, play the first game at 9am Saturday. The team finished first in the league in the regular season.
We actually finished tied for first, and as the email to the coaches explained to break the tie
"Giants and Devil Rays: they were 1-1 head to head and the Giants won the runs allowed tie breaker." We allowed 41 runs in 14 games. The Devil Rays allowed 59.

We have 3 play-off games to start, one Saturday, Sunday, and Monday. It is a 'round-robin', with the first two teams of four from the bracket moving on, which means you have to win at least 2 to move on. The semi-final is one game on Wednesday. The winners of the semi-final games play a best of three on Friday/Saturday and Sunday if necessary the following weekend.

Good Luck Giants!
