25th WBWS Re-Cap

So the old tournament turned 25 this year.  It truly is remarkable that the #WBWS has been going strong for 25 years and there doesn't appear to be anything slowing it down.

And what better way to end the 25th Annual than to feature two tournament mainstays in the final.  

The Diablos and their record 8 tournament the finals again for at least the 17th time (we'd have to confirm the on the big board at Sherwood) took on 2 time previous tournament winner Stag in their 3rd overall title game appearance.

As was the case last year, it was a low scoring affair with Stag prevailing 5-0 as the Diablos ran out of steam against a quality Stag club who secured back to back titles in 2020 and 2021.

What's most important is that the 25th Annual WBWS raised over $4,500.00 for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital thanks to all the participants, sponsors, and fans that came out for a great weekend of wiffle ball and a great cause.

See you next year for the 26th Annual WBWS September 24, 2022 @ historic Sherwood Yards.

24th Annual #WBWS Champions - STAG

Well it was another wonderful weekend of wiffle ball at Sherwood Yards and Dixie Land.  10 teams entered all competing for one thing...the #WBWS championship trophy.  You don't get anything else from winning except your team's name on the trophy...but that's enough to keep everyone coming back for 24 years of fun.

Big congrats to team Stag who ran the table and won their 2nd tournament title, first since 2013, with a 2-0 victory over the TNT Bombers who fell for the 2nd straight year in the title game.  Both teams were on their game but Stag had just enough offense to bring home the title.

Don't have final numbers just yet, but we're pretty sure it's around $2,000.00 raised for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.  Not bad for a little backyard event.  Thank you to all that participated and did your part to help keep this tournament going.  We'll see you next year September 25, 2020 for our 25th edition of the Wiffle Ball World Series @ historic Sherwood Yards!!!
