’93 Phillies WIFFLE Derby

AlumniLunchPRINT_jepmsewf_je4ew5t5.jpg

Not only did the Philadelphia Phillies add a sick WIFFLE ball field to their stadium this past off season, but just a little over a week ago, they brought in a few players from the 1993 National League Championship team for a WIFFLE ball home run derby! I just so happened to catch it on TV last night and wanted to share it with my fellow WIFFLE-ers. Enjoy!

PS, we’re still hoping to get a W2B vs. Phillies charity game going… only time will tell.

Philadelphia Phillies’ New WIFFLE Ball Field

If you drove or walked by Citizens Bank Park this off season you would have noticed there was a lot of construction taking place in the outfield. Well, one of those renovations is a WIFFLE ball field!

Citizens Bank Park will now be one of three stadiums with a WIFFLE ball field. The other two are Citi Field and AT&T Park. We had the chance to check out AT&T’s version this past summer.

Can’t wait to see what Citizens Bank has to offer with their field. Maybe we can talk them into hosting a tournament!

Irish Christmas Eve

Last week Jimmy Fallon, host of The Tonight Show, was interviewing Alicia Vikander. While interviewing Alicia, she decided to teach him a game from Sweden called, Irish Christmas Eve. Notice what type of bat they used? Yes, a WIFFLE ball bat! Reminds us of a game we play called, dizzy bat… minus the drinking. In Irish Christmas Eve you spin around with your head on the bat and then try to destroy plates with a bow and arrow. Sounds and looks like fun! Plus its always hilarious to watch someone trying anything while dizzy, so we’ve posted the video of Irish Christmas Eve below… enjoy!

Country Music & WIFFLE Ball

What is it about country music stars and wiffle ball? We’d love to sit down with one or more of them to find out and/or play them in a game for charity… We’ve been trying to challenge Brett Eldredge this week as he has a show 10 minutes from us on Saturday.

We haven’t heard back yet, but we’re still hoping to pull this off. Brett is one of the stars we’ve seen linked to wiffle ball the most. Others include Luke Bryan, Jason Aldean, and Justin Moore. So, words out! We challenge any and all of these stars to a wiffle for charity game!

Below we’ve attached the videos and social media posts of these country stars and wiffle ball. Enjoy and spread the word. Help make this wiffle for charity challenge happen!

Washington Wizards Play WIFFLE Ball At Practice

The Washington Wizards played WIFFLE ball to warm up for practice last Tuesday while they were out in Los Angeles.

The Wizards aren’t the first professional team in DC to be linked to WIFFLE ball this year either. Back in April, the Nationals told the Capitals they owed them a WIFFLE ball tournament at the Verizon Center and the Capitals agreed!

We’re thinking it’s time to challenge these three teams to a game and see what they got!

Welcome Back Fast Plastic!

Fast Plastic

Fast Plastic made its comeback this past weekend and with style, hosting the Fast Plastic Texas Open. Teams traveled from all over the country in hopes to win this national championship! The pictures and videos absolutely made us jealous we weren’t there! Hopefully this is only the beginning for Fast Plastic’s return. We’d sure love to compete in AT LEAST the Texas Open next year.

A huge congratulations goes out to our friends Sean Steffy (aka WIFFLEBoy28), Ed Packer, Kevin Norris, and Tyler Wegrzyn of Cloud9 WIFFLE for taking home the Fast Plastic National Championship!

Give ‘Em The “Cheddar!”

Lately there have been some viral videos going around about Golden Stick WIFFLE Ball, which just so happens to be the league that we’ve been playing in since 2010. In a video released by Cheddar, just this past Friday, Way Too Beautiful‘s own Adam Milsted and Ian Crosby make a couple short appearances. The clips they’re in are from the 2011 Yard Championship in Las Vegas, Nevada and the 2013 Fast Pitch Open in Savannah, Georgia.

All in all, this is just another step towards getting WIFFLE on the map! Keep up the good work GSWL. The more viral videos, the better for the sport!

We’ve posted the video below… enjoy!
