The Bandits and the Legends met between the lines for the last time of the season on Sunday (11/25/18) in the 40+ Division Houston Hardball League Championship game. The Bandits would come out hot with a run in the top of the 1st inning. However it would be the Legends day as they answered with 4 runs in the bottom of the inning. Joe “the professor” Ainsworth held a good Bandits lineup in check over the next few innings with outstanding pitching while the Legends continued to score at least 1 run in each inning. In the middle innings, the Bandits scored 2 in the 4th and 2 in the 5th to continue the fight, but the Legends would answer in each of those as well and would eventually shut down a big Bandits potential rally with two putouts at home. This was a great all-around 10-5 team win for this Fall Legends team. ~Measha Williams (Legends Mgr)
Congratulations to the Legends. They are the Fall 2018 40+ Division Champions!

We have several divisions to choose from playing two seasons per year (Spring and Fall).

Sunday afternoon "mixed-aged" divisions are ideal for college students, father-son combos, or whose work schedule may not allow otherwise. For our mastered veterans, we have a 55+ Division where friendly trash talk is just as important to the game as playing the game itself!
