Men’s Softball

St. Philip fields a team in the North Raleigh Men’s Softball League, which is run by Bay Leaf Baptist Church. The softball team serves as a wonderful means of fellowship and fun during the summer.

We play once or twice a week during the season, which typically begins in mid-April and ends in late July (including a single-elimination tournament). All men of at least 16 years of age are welcome to play.

For more information about the league or St. Philip’s team, contact Mike Davis.

2018 Tournament Summary

St. Philip entered the end of season single elimination tournament as the #7 seed. Having lost two close ones to Friendship Baptist during the regular season, the team played a solid, complete game to defeat them in the first round game by a score of 20-13.  Moving on to the the second round, our team handily defeated North Raleigh Presbyterian by a score of 27-10 to advance to the championship game for the first time since 2015.  St. Philip was peaking at the right time, but our opposition, Bay Leaf Baptist, was the #1 seed.  At game time, the weather was damp and the field was a bit slippery, but the fans were enthusiastic. The Bay Leaf grounds crew had done a fine job preparing the field. There were fielding gems – from the outfield Tyler Brown threw out two runners going to third base, Mike Reinhardt stabbed a hot line drive at second base to end an inning and Mike Davis made a great catch at the fence in left field. Our offense was led by a 2 run home run by Mike Davis and Brian Kindl, our #1 relief pitcher, started and pitched a fine, complete game.  In the end, perennial league champs, Bay Leaf Baptist prevailed by a score of 21-11.  It was a good season for the ‘boys in blue’. We look forward to the 2019 campaign.
