The Prairie Dogs are a rag tag band of Midwestern Republicans who love cheap beer and hassling try-hard teams. Their starting pitcher is always looking to openly make fun of guys wearing batting gloves during slow pitch softball. A moderately ranked team founded in 2017, the Prairie dogs will always offer a drink and encourage their competitors to never turn a beer down.

EmpireStrikes Back got its start back in 2011 as the "New" New York team when told "no thanks" after asking to join the established New York Team, Vito Power (RIP).  At the beginning, ESB slogged through its "Dark Ages," never even sniffing the end-of-year tournament.  That all changed when the team leaped from #83 in 2014 to #38 in 2015, the biggest one-year turnaround (one assumes) in league history, marking the start of the live-ball era and ESB's first tourney appearance.  Some called it a fluke.  Others said, an enormous fluke. ESB willstart again on the journey to the tournament against the Prairie Dogs on a warm Thursday in the swamps of Anacostia.  ESB has caged the dogs in their previous two matchups in well fought games. 

Whatever happens, coolers will be stocked and dizzy bat shall be played.  If we don't see you on the field this year, come join us for an obnoxious rendition of Bob Seger's "Night Moves" on 6 times in a row on the Cap Lounge jukebox (you're welcome).
