The Woes Of An Ailing Softball Team
The season has been one of turmoil thus far, for the James
Street Juggernauts. What looked like a killer roster has
shaped up to be a bit of a struggling dynamic. After barely
beating another team out for last place in the spring
(which gave us our first real victory aside from a default
win earlier in the season), we have started off the summer
season at a repugnant 0-2. Although we only lost the
first game 5 to 4 (against a much older team), we
managed to get blown away last night by a score of 22

record of 2-8, we will continue to strive for the elusive
