USFBL - Prince Fielder has a big game!

Designated hitter Prince Fielder launched 4 homeruns and had 7 RBI at Fenway
Park as the Woodbridge Rattlers beat the Toronto Toros 14 to 7.

Fielder had a great evening at the plate. He bombed a two-run dinger in the
3rd inning, cracked a solo homerun in the 5th inning, lost the ball over the
fence for three runs in the 6th inning, smashed a solo-shot out of the park
(his 7th of the season) in the 8th inning and lined a base-hit in the 9th
inning. Fielder also missed out on a 5th HR in his first AB as Andruw Jones
robbed him at the fence!

Woodbridge provided plenty of action in the 6th inning with 6 runs
on 7 hits. Offensively, Woodbridge was a juggernaut. They scored in 6
separate innings.

The victory went to Paul Maholm(2-1) who went 6 innings, allowing 3 runs.
Jeremy Bonderman(0-1) was charged with the loss. He got hit pretty hard,
allowing 12 hits and 3 walks in 5 and 2/3 innings.


USPTFL - Super Bowl III - (2006)

TOKYO DRIFT LEADS THEM TO THE TITLE, 41-21 over the St. Louis Bandits

Opponent: Todd Hopkins - STL

This one played out pretty much to form with Peyton Manning continuing his playoff MVP form and the Yokozunas hanging up another big number thanks to facing an average/average defense. Manning threw for 348 yards on 26/40 passing and Tokyo racked up 34 first downs. For the Bandits, Fran Gor was a one man show racking up close to 200 yards on the ground and hitting a few of his big numbers including a 72-yard run, but much of that came after Tokyo had opened up a sizeable lead. The lead was only nine at the half, but three straight second half TD's put the game away for the repeat champions. Good game, but too much Tokyo firepower.

Congratulations to Dennis Crowley and the Tokyo Yokozunas for becoming back to back USPTFL Champions!

USFRBL - 1971 - 5th No-Hitter! in Game 7 of the World Series!


In Game 7 of the 1971 USFRBL World Series, the Los Angeles fans certainly got their money's worth at Riverfront Stadium but unfortunately were on the wrong side of the score. Vida Blue(3-0) pitched a rare no-hitter as the Oakland Senators toppled the Los Angeles Reds 2 to 0. Blue had his best stuff and was 'painting the black' with every pitch. A beautiful game to watch. He walked 4 Los Angeles batters. The tension was mounting with every inning after the 6th. Blue appeared oblivious himself to the mounting history until two were out in the 9th. Only then, did he allow himself one deep sigh and a slow trip around the mound. Los Angeles was retired without difficulty in the bottom of the 9th. Don Gullett(1-1) absorbed the loss in relief. He pitched 1 and 1/3 innings and surrendered 1 hit and no walks. 'Blue made us look bad' Larry Reeves said. 'I've seen a lot of good performances in my time and this one will be tucked away in my memory bank for a long time to come.
