Team Sentinel plays wiffle ball on Wilbur Field.

A heated rivalry took place on Wilber Field Saturday afternoon, as the Sentinel reporters took a break from the final drafts of their individual stories to play the Post reporters in a game of wiffleball. Prior to the unplanned game, players discussed the importance of this game.
“[The game] really meant a lot to the fellowship and the brotherhoods of the two reporting staffs,” says Alec Dougherty, honorary Sentinel member. Dougherty was slotted in as the starting shortstop and batting second in the lineup. With Rory Plewman on the mound for Sentinel versus Alistair Tang for the Post, the competition was very intense. Plewman and Tang both threw an inning each to start, with a massive two-run homer by Dougherty in the bottom of the first. Justin Kasser, second baseman for Sentinel, came in to pitch in the top of the first. He then threw a solid half inning for both teams, hurling a knuckleball and a two-seam fastball.
However, after the game fell apart due to “boredom” according to multiple anonymous members from both teams, the wiffleball game transformed into a soccer game within seconds. Both reporting squads put up a solid fight in both matches, and it was truly a well fought game.
