The Urban Achievers
URBAN ACHIEVERS take home Denmarks Baseball Cup -- for the 4th year in a row!!!!
Copenhagen Urban Achievers 7-5 Aarhus Athletico
The gray blanket that had been draped over downtrodden ballplayers all across Denmark was miraculously lifted in time for the Championship Final in Odense this past Sunday, encouraging a small but dedicated entourage of supporters to turn up for the annual competition to take home the prestigious Denmark's Baseball Cup.
The home team honors went to Athletico Aarhus for their strong regular season performance. The odds-makers had them favored in this year's final, having taken two of three games against the Urban Achievers, 3-time defending champions and eternal baseball heroes of Copenhagen.
But the Achievers, who embody a never-say-die attitude in the stylized determination of their play, don't give a shit about the odds. And despite giving their opponents a 4-spot in the first inning, the Achievers clawed their way back to tie the game at 5 in the sixth inning, playing to their strengths of tight defense and dominant pitching from southpaw JB, who threw 8 and 1/3 innings of shut-down ball.
It was only a matter of time before fans and players alike would be forced to come to terms with the fact Copenhagen's ballclub revels in late-game surges and dramatic come-from-behind victories. With a more patient approach at the plate and refined baserunning, the Achievers looked good grinding out each at bat and keeping that train a' rolling.
With the bases loaded and one out in the 8th inning -- our magic inning, as always -- Franky Boy crushed a 3-1 fastball over the shortstop and into left-center field for a go-ahead, two-run single. The score stood 7-5 in favor of Copenhagen.
With two outs in the bottom of the ninth, the ball soared into centerfield and Dr. Moss had once again secured the final out of a big game, and the Achievers had once again won the day.
Winning isn't everything, but it sure is something.
Four titles in a row.
Well done, lads.
Thanks to all our supporters and fans and Gibby the bat boy and to Jesper Skou Jensen for filming the entire game and uploading it to youtube. Check it out:
