Game of the Week

The Emperors will host Sugar Hill on field 3 at 9:00 am. This game will be umpired by the Ravens.

Sunday is right around the corner which means stickball is back. Last Sunday, no games were played and every team had off due to Easter. Two weeks of stickball in the books and we have a four way tie for 1st place. Game of the week will consist of two of those four first place teams. The Emperors will host the hottest team in the NYESL, Sugar Hill. The Emperors ended week two with a big win over the Ravens and they are hoping to keep the momentum going. Sugar Hill is riding a 3 game winning streak and hope to make it 4 games with a win over the Emperors. Sugar Hill ranks in the top of the league in offense while the Emperors rank in the top of the league in defense.

What To Look Out For:

Sugar Hill`s offense is the key to their success. They have scored 20 runs in the last four games combined. This team is scary when on base so they will have to take advantage of their speed on the bases. If they can keep their offense rolling, they will have a lot of success in this game and will possibly walk away with a win.

The Emperor`s defense is what they are known for. They have allowed 12 runs in the last four games. In three out of four games, the Emperors have held their opponents to 2 or less runs. The Emperors are not known for scoring many runs in a game but they usually score enough runs and secure the win with their defense. If the Emperors can keep this young, talented, Sugar Hill offense quiet, they will walk away with a big win.
