It was another memorable week for Eh Team Vancouver at the 2018 Advertising Softball World Series.

This year’s edition, the 36th annual (Sept. 30 to Oct. 4) in Orlando, Fla., brought together teams from Dallas, New York, Chicago, Detroit, London and Vancouver for a week of softball, parties, great times and memories.

This year also marked the 20th anniversary of Eh Team Vancouver, who joins with Chicago Bad Apples as the two longest continuing franchises at the Ad World Series.

Eh Team Vancouver brought a veteran squad to Orlando this year and for the first time since it’s opening tournament appearance in 1999, no rookies were on the squad.

Eh Team opened up day one of the tournament with a 12-8 loss to Who Cares?!

They rebounded with wins over WTF Happened (16-5), Menace 2 Sobriety (10-8) and Shenanigans (28-6) to finish the day at 3-1, including a 3-0 start in division play.

Day two brought about more of the same – an opening game loss – followed by three wins.

Eh Team lost 11-5 to Motor City Chaos, beat Chicago Bad Apples ins a walk-off thriller 7-6, beat New York Cocktails – Brew Crew 12-1 and Thundercats from Jersey U.K. 18-2. Eh Team sat with an overall record of 6-2 and 6-1 in division.

On day three and the final day of competition, Eh Team once again dropped its first game of the day, then reeled off three-straight wins.

The opener was an 11-10 loss to New York Cocktails – Booze Crew, the eventual division one champions. Wins over Cocktails Brew Crew (19-6), Shenanigans (26-4) and WTF Happened (14-4) pushed Eh Team’s record to an impressive 9-3 overall and 9-1 in division.

The record resulted in a division championship and another city title for Eh Team, its first division title since 2015 and first city title since 2013.
