Shut-D Black Sox

A new team in 2006, the Black Sox were a group of renegade free agents with a "Say it ain't so, Joe" attitude.

In 2007, these guys gave the Mariners some stiffer competition in the Makai Division.

By 2008, this group could hardly be considered a bunch of neophites. Their off-season recruiting of free agents was aggressive, and the team moved up. They finished the regular season finish tied for third place. Unfortunately, their playoff hopes were quickly dashed when the Thunder and the Crush delivered a 1-2 punch that ended the Black Sox' season.

In 2009, this same group of guys came back, fortified with the addition of several players for the old Crush and Marlins teams. Finally this team appeared to be a legitimate contender for the crown. In fact, they claimed the Mauka Division championship during the regular season. However, in the playoffs, they fell to the reigning league champion Thunder in a 13-inning marathon.

For 2010, the Black Sox have to be considered a premier team. Fortifying their troops with a couple of ex-Crush players who were absent from the league in 2009, the Black Sox seem to have a particularly deep pitching staff. The Black Sox also picked up partial sponsorship from Shut-D and will be sporting both home and road uniforms this season.

The Black Sox thank these businesses for partial team sponsorship and/or other consideration:
