Winter in Wakefield, MA

Ah, we love our new house, and the neighborhood we live in. Our neighbors are super friendly (today, one of them used his snowblower to help me clear the very long sidewalk in front and to the side of my house).  This is awesome!

And winter in Wakefiled is beautiful, just look at the pictures I took today after winter storm Niko blew through New England.

Beautiful Sunrise

Took Lizzie for a walk last week, and couldn’t help but marvel at the sunrise.  Had to take a pic, and it was even more beautiful in person!


Final Stats – Pilots

Below are the final stats for the Pilots.  The Pilots won 3 games by forfeit, and played a total of 20 games, ending the regular season with a record of 18 and 2.  The team batted .445 for the season, scoring 221 runs, while walking 141 times and striking out 121 times.  Good job Pilots, and let’s have some fun in the play-offs.


Play-off Baseball

Pilots finished the season in first place with a 18 and 2 record.  I will post final stats shortly.

Today, the play-offs begin, with the Pilots facing the 4-seed Seals (weather permitting, as thunder storms could pop up this evening).  The game is at 5:45 PM, and should be a good match-up of two very strong teams.  Depending on the outcome, the Pilots will either face the Flames or the Knights on Tuesday.  Good luck Christopher and Pilots.

Pilots Update

Pilots went 3 and 0 their last three games, and now sit atop the division with a record of 15 and 2.  They started off beating the Chiefs 18:3, followed by back-to-back games against the Colonels, winning the first game convincingly 23:5 and winning the second game 12:7.

Next game is today against the 3rd place Seals (with a record of 13-4-1), and then 2 more games later next week.  Here are the up-to-date stats, Christopher is batting .533, with 24 hits in 45 at-bats, driving in 16 runs, and getting walked a team-leading 17 times.  Great job Christopher, and let’s go Pilots!


Pilots Baseball – Update end of June

The Pilots had a couple of tough losses since the last update, losing 9:5 against the Seals (behind strong pitching from Matt), as well as losing in extra innings 8:7 against the Flames.  But the very next game the Pilots recorded a forfeit win, since the Orioles only had 8 players to start the game.  This brought the Pilots record to 10 and 2 on the season.

Wednesday the Pilots faced another tough pitcher, battling the Knights to a 5:4 victory.  The Pilots went up 4:0 early on, and strong pitching by Ronnie kept the Knights at bay, with Ronnie recording a complete game win, striking out 15 and only giving up 3 hits.  Great job Pilots, still on top of the league at 11 and 2.

Updated player stats are below, as well as the standings.  Next game is a make-up game on Saturday against the Knights – should be a fun game.





Pilots Baseball–Update

Pilots had 5 games scheduled in 8 days, but mother nature cancelled 2 games.  So this week, Pilots played only 2 of the 4 games scheduled (the fifth game was last Saturday), and they won both games.  Game 1 of the week was against the Orioles, and the Pilots came out on top 9:0.  And today, the Pilots beat the Chiefs 23:3, meaning they are now 9-0-0 on the season, and on top of the standings.

Next game is Thursday against the Colonels, which should make for an interesting game as we beat them last time out 10:9 (and under Colonels protest of the game).  Tempers should be running hot, making for a great game (hopefully).

I’ll post some stats and standings later in the week. Go Pilots! OK, so here are the standings and team stats:



Pilots Baseball Update

Tonight’s game had 2 undefeated teams face each other, with the Pilots coming in at 6-0, and the Flames coming in with a 5-0-1 record. The Flames started strong, going up 2:0 after the first inning, but in the second inning the Pilots cut the lead to 2:1.  The Pilots then went up 3:2 in the third, but the Flames came right back scoring 3 runs to go up 5:3.  But the Pilots showed some real heart, scoring 4 runs in the fourth inning, and never looked back, going on to win this top match-up 10:5. Here are the standings:

Malden Babe Ruth League    Malden  MA    powered by

Pilots are now 7-0 and on top of the standings.  Next game up is Monday against the Knights.

Pilots Baseball Update–Break is Over

The Pilots returned to the diamond after a 9-day layoff, and were ready to face the Nationals.  The Nationals were 0-5, with having to forfeit the last 3 games due to missing players (they didn’t have enough to start the game).  And tonight was no different, Nationals only had 8 players, and had to forfeit this game as well.

So now the Pilots are 6-0 on the season, getting ready for another top game against the Flames this Saturday.  Should be a good game, as the Flames are 3-0-1 as of tonight.
