TANNER, CA – Despite a season of zero wins and mostly shutouts, Tanner Little League team Doug’s Team has made the playoffs.
“The guys are really excited, and I didn’t want to tell them how brackets work,” said team manager and coach Doug Fowler. “We were going to be in the tournament no matter what.”
The team was hastily assembled to accommodate an influx of players, and has yet to choose a formal name. Teammates have suggested that they come up with some ideas in case they win the championship.
Fowler nodded his head slowly. “First things first, fellas.”
