The Diamond Backs. Not the Major League Franchise who stole a World Series Ring from the New York Yankees in 2001 with a blooper from Luis Gonzalez; but the Bronx D-Backs Stickball team who has come a long way since their entrance into the New York Emperors Stickball League (NYESL) as “Nothing Personal, Starling A.C.”. The D-Backs are now entering their 8th season sitting at a combined record of 105 wins, 119 losses and 44 ties (105-119-44) with an average win percentage of .243. Numbers don’t mean anything for this team as they have recently been playing some really good ball over the years. They are coming off their best year yet with a record of 7-13-4 (.375 win percentage) and have their best run differential with a -30 posting for 2014. This is all good news for a team that has been playing together for a number of years.
