I love this game!

So, I’ve been playing my Phoenix Metro Baseball League again recently. Last year I was doing a dynasty report on it and ended up burning ou a bit. I think I was writing a little too much detail about 1 season to keep it up. Anyway, I have a favorite player in the league. His name is Cameron Pettit. He wears number 51 for the Scottsdale Swarm. He’s the best pitcher the league has ever seen. He has won 8 Pitcher of the Year awards (an award that will almost certainly be named after him at some point) and 2 League MVP awards, inn 2029 and 2033. In 2029, he led his team to the league championship as the Metro Cup MVP. He has had a number of small injuries over the years, but he tore his rotator cuff after the first inning he pitched in 2034, forcing him to miss the rest of the season. In 2035, he had a solid year statistically, but missed a few games with other injuries. His team was awful that year. The 2036 season saw Cameron pitch 22 games (pitchers usually start about 27) and finish 6-6 with a respectable ERA. He’s not quite the pitcher he used to be, but I love to see him succeed. (He is now Scottsdale’s number 3 starter. Their current ace won the 2036 Pitcher of the Year award.)

That brings us to the 2036 Metro Cup. (The chapionship is a best of 7 series.) Scottsdale lost the first two games of the series and desperately needed a win in game 3. Pettit pitched 7 strong innings and led his team to a 4-2 win, giving Scottsdale a chance in the series. They went on to win the next two games and take a 3-2 lead into game 6. Their opponent (Surprise) decided to change up their satrter for game 6 and it paid off. Surprise evened the series at 3 games apiece after a shutout win. That meant Cameron Pettit would get one more chance to impact the series. Number 51 was set to start the deciding game. Pettit and his opponent, Fleenor matched each other for the first several innings, as the teams headed into the 7th inning stretch in a scoreless tie. Fleenor allowed Scottsdale to load the bases with 2 out in the bottom of the 7th before a pinch hitter knocked a 2-run single back up the middle. The Scottsdale closer came out to pitch the last 2 frames and seal the championship for Scottsdale. Pettit finished the game with 7 innings, allowing 3 hits, and striking out 10. Pettit earned his second win of the series, and was named Metro Cup MVP. What an incredible moment for the aging veteran! I watched the entire game 7 and was on the edge of my seat the whole time!
