This guy’s name is Renaud Lefort, and he’s a member of Montreal’s Les 4 Chevaliers, which is apparently the Harlem Globetrotters of the softball world. That feels weird as hell to type, but, anyway, look at this backwards homer.
I would like you to meet the Stinkmitts, a beer-league softball team from Toronto that really understands how to get the most out of social media. Throughout the 2015 season, which the Stinkmitts appear to be dominating, the team has been running its Instagram account as if it was in the big leagues. It’s wonderful.
A second former softball player has sued St. Joseph’s University and its softball team coach, Terri Adams, saying she was forced to endure hazing and was threatened when members of the team believed she was the source of a media report about it.

Last night, Gawker's softball team—Gawker Softball: Presented by Max Read—played Thrillist at Randall's Island, which has dozens upon dozens of perfectly manicured baseball fields that smell faintly of raw sewage. Or maybe that stench was just our team. We lost 33-5.
If you've ever wanted to see Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers in short shorts, high socks, and a wig, well, drink it all in.
This is one of the weirdest plays you're going to see for awhile.
We admire the effort here—the ballplayer-tied-to-a-roasting-spit videobomb is one that comes with a high degree of difficulty, and these ladies' execution is solid—but a good videobomb is one that enters the frame unexpectedly and unannounced.
