|Law Review Nerds||
Mr. F batted on to law review after hitting .695 in the 2010 Invitational
A group of men’s men from the classes of 2012 and 2011. The heady days when impressionable liberal arts graduates thought law school was a good investment, Jason Derulo dominated the airwaves, and a wonderful bar called McGrady’s still existed. Everyone on this team has won the tournament at least once, but several have not touched a glove in over five years. At this point, we’re all just living in that gray zone where you think you still have your athletic ability, but eventually through injury realize it has left you. So let’s see how this whole thing goes!

Jimmy asked that we “keep work stuff out of it.”
|Want To Play Against||
Florida Coastal, and their conspicuously absent Regular Division team
|DON’T Want To Play Against||
UVA Gray. If any of our bosses are on that team they’ll know we’re not all at weddings
|Favorite Thing About The Tournament||
Escapism and eternal glory; meeting great people from other schools; Bodo’s Bagels; Friday night games at the Park; the Biltmore; warning track power at Darden Towe; the fact that alumni teams can play; the very existence of Florida Coastal; and the fact that when UVA Gold lost the finals in 2013, their captain immediately drove to Copeley Field and buried the team’s $300 bat somewhere in center field
|The Tournament Would Be More Awesome If||
Many years ago, Alex himself nixed the idea of a radar gun station for everyone to blow their arms out trying to throw harder than 70 mph. It was a mistake then and it’s a mistake now. How is this still not a thing?
We have aged past our primes and it is starting to hit us hard. A doctor recently told one of our players that the tendons in his arm resemble old guitar strings that have been “plucked a million times.” Half of our team is day-to-day on the injury report, and even a few hours in the “up” position of our standing desks has become a daily struggle. However, we will persevere, because the Invitational is an experience to behold, and we would honestly be happy just drinking beers at Bilt.
