Washington DC's OSC Wins World Kickball Championship

Other Shot Callers from the DC Liberty league are your 2011 World Kickball Champions, as they defeated VA Southside's Panik Attack in the final game on Saturday night in Las Vegas to win the 60 team tournament.

A summary and some quick facts from WAKA's Orion Walker:

  • OSC loaded the bases in the 1st and cashed in with 2 sac flys. Both defenses lock down and the score holds until the 4th, when OSC run it up to 5-0 with a bases-loaded liner off the pitcher followed by 2 more sac flys. Panik Attack threaten in the 5th and OSC walk in a run before closing it out, 5-1.
  • This was a rematch of the final 2 teams from last year when Panik Attack won. It was the first Finals rematch in the 4 years FC has been played in it's present form/in the Vegas era.
  • The victorious team, Other Shot Callers, won the Cup in 2009 as the Others (video available), and core players such as Captain Bill Castillejo, Ever Rivera, Kathryn Tucker, and Tara Carpenter have been together since they played on perennial early-WAKA champs Kick Asphalt.
  • OSC's road to the Finals required them to beat the top Georgia team Flying V, and top Florida team MEATBALLS, before facing VA Beach's top-seeded defending champion Panik Attack
