Bonghitters snap losing streak

High Times' softball stoners, the Bonghitters, improved their 2006 record to 7-4 with a 12-5 victory over DC Comics last night in Central Park. The Bonghitters ended a 4-game losing streak in defeating DC for the 7th consecutive time.

In the midst of a sweltering heat wave, New York's utility company Con Edison yesterday ordered businesses to turn off air conditioning and in many cases close buildings. High Times followed instructions, and the Bonghitters waited in the office until it was time to head up to Central Park. A sudden shower just before gametime cooled things down considerably and also dampened the dusty field.

DC grabbed a 4-2 lead, but the Bonghitters came back with 2 runs in the 3rd to tie the game. The Bonghitters forged ahead on RBI hits by Danny Danko and Craig Coffey in the 4th, and added 5 more runs in the 5th. Rick Reta (6-2) got the win.

Check out the feature about the Bonghitters on page 60 of the upcoming October issue of High Times.

The Bonghitters' next game is on August 9 against Trader Monthly.

I LOVE THE BONGHITTERS!!! This was an awesome article. Wish I was there to see the show too. I was really looking forward to it, but had to go to FL. I'll see you this week, God willing!
Peace, Love, & Smoke,
