The first ever Common Cup co-ed softball team ended it's Xenia recreational league season tonight with a loss to finish with a record of one win and several defeats. This might seem depressing but consider how expansion teams have fared for their inaugural years:
1962 New York Mets - 40-120
1972 Philadelphia 76ers - 9-73
1976 Tampa Bay Buccaneers - 0-14
Despite the lack of victories in the win column, it was great to see team-like Christian fellowship and the Common Cup shared ministry spirit prevalent at each of our games. We averaged 4.5 fans a game which made it even more exciting!
A big thank you to the Common Cup softball players (some of whom aren't in this photo which was taken at tonight's game) and to Jason and Kristy Christian who served as managers/organizers. Plans are to have another co-ed Common Cup softball team next year and we'll begin advertising early in '09.
Check out the brief post game/post season interview between the Owner/General Manager and Manager Jason "Dusty" Christian.
