High Times Staff Attempts to Prove Usefulness With Softball Prowess

NYMSL_logo09.11.08.jpgAh, glories of the dying days of fall. Fashion Week. The beautiful leaves. The return of the NFL and Gossip Girl. And of course, High Times in the New York Media League softball playoffs.

The normally dominant squad had a rough season, finishing 5-4 and will take on The Wall Street Journal in the semifinals this Sunday in Central Park’s Heckscher Playground. The winner of that game will play the victor of 8-0 BusinessWeek vs. 5-4 Trader Monthly for the coveted championship.

Steve Bloom, the league’s commissioner, dramatically set the stage in an email to FishbowlNY.com earlier today: “BusinessWeek dominated the NYMSL’s second season as they did the first. However, High Times defeated BusinessWeek in last year’s title game with a come-from-behind 8-6 victory.”

The games will begin at 10:15 a.m.
