The Hebrew Nationals softball team, wearing their new uniforms compliments of the hot dog company of the same name, looked good running the bases and scrambling in the outfield Monday night at Tingley Park, but in the end, that wasn’t enough.
The team they were supposed to play, the Chicharrones from the Christian Student Center, never showed; so the New Covenant Church Holy Hitters agreed to a pickup game and beat the Hebrew Nationals so bad that the woman who was charged with keeping score threw down her pen after the fourth inning. “There was just no point,” she said.
Nevertheless, Dan Skinner, Hebrew National brand communications manager, who had come from Chicago to watch the team, wasn’t disappointed. “It was a blast,” he said. “It’s so much fun to be here and to meet the guys on the team. Win or lose, they’ll be well fed.”
