There’s no crying in baseball.
Unless you live in
Austin. Then there’s at least sixteen reasons to
cry. That’s the number of seasons since
the City Limits last playoff appearance.
The promise of the post-season hung over
like a large, happy hanging thing throughout the entirety of the season. The squad looked good, playing the best ball
of its history, even leading its division for stretches. But when the games were all played and the
dust cleared, the City Limits had crashed down to earth with a resounding thud
and finished just short.
92 wins. That blew
previous season-high win total of 84 wins out of the water. But it also happened in a year when it took
93 wins to earn a wild card berth.
Tantalizingly close, but just out of reach.
Sorry, wylie, there’s always next year!
