Week Eight Recap

Ricky Torres and Rich Torres have lost a close relative this past Saturday. As a league, everyone agreed to let the Emperors postpone their game against the Royals and the Gold.

The whole stickball community will like to send our prayers to the Torres family and Emperors family, as they push through this rough time. We take this game for granted sometimes and tragedies make us realize that we are all one family.
