Then after the other teams have seen you a few times they'll move their outfielders in, at which time you power up and smash it over their heads. Good times.
Anyone else ever played in tournaments where you have to chug a beer at each base before you can advance?
I play beer league at my college. It's slightly different than slow pitch softball in that we use a baseball and a small crappy aluminum bat, but we do play on the softball field. You also pitch to your own team and get four chances to put the ball in play. Given the quality of the bat (extra poor) it's not a guaranteed homer for most people. There's a limit of 5 runs per inning, and your also supposed to drink a beer per inning and chug one if you go deep. There's a lot of homers in the beginning, but they start to peter off fairly quickly.
The scores range from high single digits to low 20's and you have to carry a beer around with you while you run the bases. Only two outs per inning also.
So yeah, pretty much mixing beer and slow pitch softball (or baseball) is always a good thing.
