San Diego Swinging Friars - Season 14 World Champions


The San Diego Swinging Friars defeated the Oakland Stompers 4 games to 2 in a terrific World Series. The Friars took an early 6-0 lead in game 1 with the long ball. Ryan Klesko hit a 3 run Homer in the 3rd, and Bobby Doerr followed with a 2 run shot in the 4th. The Stompers fought back with 3 runs in the 6th on Ralph Kiner’s 2 run Home Run, but could not catch the Friars who took the game 6-4.
Vida Blue and Dan Haren took the mound in game 2 and both pitched superbly. Blue gave up 2 runs in 7 1/3, but Haren pitched 6 shut out innings, striking out 6. Rocky Colavito hit the game winning, pinch hit Home Run in the 8th and the Swinging Friars had the win 2-1, and now had a 2-0 World Series lead.
The Series shifted to Oakland for game 3, and the Stompers were looking for some better luck at home. The game was a slugfest. The Friars took a 7-1 lead into the 6th, scoring every inning but the 2nd using timely hitting throughout the lineup. The Stompers came charging back with 2 runs in the 6th on Chuck Klein’s 2 run triple, and 4 runs in the 7th. The game was now tied 7-7. The Friars responded with 2 runs in the 8th on Scott Rolen’s RBI Double and Doerr’s Sac Fly. The Friars won the game 9-7, and now had a commanding 3-0 Series lead.
The Sompers needed help, and Addie Joss came to the rescue in game 4, striking out 8, allowing only 4 baserunners on 2 hits, and Frankie Frisch hit a solo home run in the 2nd and a RBI double in the 7th giving the Stompers life with a 4-0 victory. With their backs still against the wall, Jeff Tesreau followed with another 2 hitter in game 5 keeping the Stompers alive, and the Stompers offense seemed to also have new life in an 8-1 victory. The Stompers scored early and often led by Klein and Chipper Jones RBI doubles.
Back home at PETCO Park, the Friars sent game 2 winner Haren back to the mound to face Blue. The Stompers struck first in the top of the 3rd but the Friars stormed right back with 4 runs on a bases clearing triple by Ernie Banks. The Stompers did not give up, tying the game in the 7th on a 2 run single by Kiner and the game went to extra innings knotted up at 5. In the bottom of the 10th, Goldschmidt led off with a single, and after getting on base with a FC, Banks scored when pinch hitter and series MVP Ryan Klesko hit a 2 out, game winning double. In the Series Klesko drove in 7 runs on 2 doubles and 1 Home Run, finishing with a 1.267 OPS. Klein led the Stompers on offense batting .435, 1.478 OPS, with 3 doubles, 1 triple and 1 Home Run.

Rule Changes This Season

We have made some changes to the rules that were in place prior to this season.

1. dWar values have been added to all players.
dWar was manually entered based on a review of the career average of each player

2. Draft
After the 3 round Slow Draft we will transition to a Daily Draft until each team reaches a roster size of 28 players. The Daily Draft allows you to rank players, and a round is run every 12 hours, giving you more control over the team you end up with. The daily draft only takes about 12 days to finish since it drafts two rounds per day. No one will be skipped in this league's draft. If you are not in the draft room during the rapid selection period, you haven't provided the commissioner with draft instructions, and you haven't pre-ranked players via the Supplemental Draft mechanism, you'll still get a player auto-picked for you.

3. Contracts
In place of contacting the commissioner to tag and retain 2 players, each team will be able to sign 2 players to a 1 year contract.

You said that you would update some of the catcher arms (like Campanella's) during the offseason. Are you still planning on doing that?
