The most dominant team of geeks in the second season of IT Sports League softball proved to be Whitepages as they took the title last week from defending champs SimplyMeasured.
The Whitepages Wombats, captained by revenue accounting manager Erin Schindler, beat SimplyMeasured 15-8 at Seattle’s Queen Anne Field and finished the season with a 9-1 record. Whitepages reached the championship game by beating a team from Quantum, 24-12.
SimplyMeasured, which took the title last summer, finished with two losses this year. They beat TINYPulse 21-8 to reach the final game.
Quantum beat TINYPulse 11-8 to finish third this year. TINYPulse was the only team to beat Whitepages during the regular season.
The league attracted nine teams this season, up five from last year’s inaugural effort. Newcomers included Quantum, Bizible, Real Self, DomainTools and Avvo.
Organizer Steve Mayeda said it was a great season and there were plenty of big hits and impressive plays on defense. Some teams showed improvement as the season progressed, and rivalries are definitely taking shape.
“I think next year we will be at 12 or 16 teams,” Mayeda said. “We all have a lot of fun and get to meet others in our industry.”
Next up for the league is dodgeball in September.
