"I just do it with a bowling technique, but I've seen some other techniques," said Franciosa. "One guy threw it overhand, and another guy throws it underhand but puts a curve on it so it starts out way out [one direction] and curves back over the plate."
As competitive as the games are, there is also a fun spirit to them.The players often smile throughout the games, and such team names as Bear Fights, Grape Crush and Menace to Sobriety keep that spirit going.
"For the most part, everyone is here to have a good time," said Mosbey.
"I like to play sports that are fun, even if they're not popular," added Reid Schauer of North Greenbush. "I like being with people. It's a good way to meet people."
