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. This community is much more bigger than just a game. When one of our fellow stickball brothers go through such a tragedy, the whole league grieves as well. 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.
