Friday's Hot Clicks: Carrie Minter; The greatest play in Wiffle Ball history
Great moments in Wiffle Ball
Labor Day weekend is here. It's the perfect time to turn off the TV, call a few friends and play a friendly game of Wiffle ball. That's what these guys did and they turned in the best play in Wiffle ball history (according to my unofficial records, at least). Also, what an amazing field. You know it's serious when there are painted white lines and a batting net.
