There are 7 teams in the league, so every Tuesday and Thursday there will
be one team that doesn't play. To make things come out even there were
games scheduled for Friday June 6, with the Coyotes playing a double
header that night.
Standings: COED UN-UMPIRED A DIVISION  as of July 19
The first win-loss column is the official record from the LSSE web page.
The second win-loss column is unofficial, based on knowledge of games not yet 
posted by LSSE (if there is nothing there it means I don't know anything more
than the LSSE web page). The third column is the Dragons won-lost record 
against each team. The order is based on the unofficial percentage.

                      official    unofficial   Dragons

     Spare Parts     18-1  (.947) 19-1  (.950) 1-2 ( .333) 
     Dragons         12-6  (.666) 14-6  (.700)  -

Who are the other teams in our league?

The Balmers (last year's COB, but Balmers is their old name), are old
friends.  Some of them work at Food for Thought in Amherst. We shared
the league championship with them two years ago when it became too
dark to finish the final playoff game, tied 10-10 after 5 long

The Coyotes are also old friends, many of them are in the UMass
Computer Science Department. On occasion some Dragons have joined with
them to form teams for benefit tournaments.

The Ooze we know from past seasons.  We have had good and bad times
with them. A number of them are from the Biology and related
departments at UMass.

The Nose Talkers are composed of members of the UMass Chem and Harp
teams of last year. A young and friendly team. 

The 10-56s are a team that previously played in the umpired league and
decided to move to our league. At least some of them work for UMass
Transit.  "10-56" is the police radio code for "drunk and disorderly."
The Spare Parts played in the Sunday (B division) unumpired coed league last
year. Their base is the Polymer Science Dept. at UMass. They chose their 
name because in past seasons they were frequently short-handed and drafted 
bystanders or friends to field full teams. As I write this about halfway 
through the season, they don't seem to be having any problem fielding a team 
and they have become **the** team to beat in the A Division.
Manager's email:

Our league is part of the Amherst (MA) Amherst Leisure Services & Supplemental Education (LSSE) sports program.
