Point: Bauer, You’re Out!
by Jimmy “Da Hammer” Lopez
On behalf of the 2006 Jimmy’s Seaside Coed Softball team, we would like to thank Jack Bauer for a solid year. We won the Orange County League Championship, however the methods used by certain members of our squad cannot be tolerated. The team voted and Jack Bauer will not be a part of the Jimmy’s Seaside team for the 2007 season.
We really appreciate Jack Bauer coming out and playing third base for us. His .865 batting average, 39 Homeruns, and 123 Runs driven in were tops in the league. We finished the season with 34 wins and zero losses. Teams like The Hamslammers, Bob’s Discount Tires, Beer-runs, and The Smokin’ Gunz had no shot against us this year.
But winning is not everything. The league warned us 453 times about complaints other teams had about Jack Bauer’s play at third. While I did not see it, one team claims Bauer warned a Jenny “Hot Stuff” Martinez on The Goners that if she scored “her children would grow up without a mommy”. She refused to leave third base. Now I sided with Bauer in that case, but I was watching when Jack fielded a ground ball and then threw the ball at the head of a runner heading home, while the runner did not score and we won the game, the runner spent the rest of the season making spit bubbles in his hospital room.
Then there are the problems with Jack Bauer and his bat. There was more than one case of Jack Bauer holding on to his bat after he hit the ball. Now, I wasn’t looking but I hear that one team had to find a new second baseman after Jack broke up a double play using a bat.
We can put up with the constant complaints from the other teams. However, Jack Bauer’s treatment of some of our own teammates was the literal “straw that broke the camel’s back”. Just to set the record straight, Mason “Fat Boy” Jackson was never a mole. Bauer accused him of giving away signs to the other team and even tried to make Jackson swallow a softball unless he confessed.
Jackson, myself, the rest of the team, every team in the league, the league president, and the police all think it would be best if Jack Bauer were not allowed to play for Jimmy’s Seaside or any team in the Orange County Coed Softball League ever again.
