Extra Base Hits Record Smashed Mid-Season!

The 2012 season has already been for the most part a smashing success, and when Tom "Cat" LeRoux and Jeff "Silverback" Rahl started a race towards the all-time season record for extra base hits in an Independents season at the beginning of the year, then we knew it could get fun.  In no way did anyone expect that the record would be broken after only 12 games.

In 2009 Jason "Buttons" McInerney set the standard for making extra bases for the Independents by launching howitzers at a record pace and put 17 balls deep into the garden.  It took McInerney 19 games to replace the former record holder from 2008, Branden "The Rope" Revette, who set the original standard at 16 extra base hits in 20 games.  This year though, will see the mark set incredibly high, as Jeff "Silverback" Rahl has already surpassed the McInerney bar with 19 extra base hits in only 12 matches.  Who knows what heights might be reached as Rahl is currently being pushed by Tom "Cat" LeRoux with 14, Alan "Kid" Garcia with 12, and Justin "Doc" Garcia with 11.  It should be fun to see just how many offensive records fall this year.
