In certain circles within the league, there's been a question often asked: "who is the best to have ever played in our league?" It's a query that normally leads to very spirited debate and been the fodder for much podcast debate. Some of the more obvious answers have long entered the hall of fame and those names have been on the tip of our collective tongue since beginning this institution. But there is one player who has impressed us all with his talent and character to a level that truly sets him apart from those who have came before him. So now when the question is asked in those same circles of "who is the best to have ever played?" Many now say the answer is undoubtedly Brice Clark.

Clark entered the league during the tumultuous 2016 season with an early version of his soon to be legendary Mothmen team in tow for that season's June tournament. An established pecking order was ripe for upset and Clark led his Mothmen to play the spoiler as he led his team to victory over Make Wiffle Great Again and the Rocket Boys before Dinger City sent them into the losers bracket where they had their back against the wall for the rest of the tournament. With the pressure of being eliminated, Clark showed us what he (and his Mothmen) were made of) as they outslugged the Rocket Boys 16-7 to advance to the championship to play Dinger City (who had put them in the losers bracket). They'd need to beat them twice to win the tournament, which would be no easy feat - especially given the namesake of their opponent, they'd need to hold them on defense. 

Ultimately, Clark and his Mothmen would succeed and they outscored Dinger City 17-6 in game 1 and edged them out 8-7 in game 2 to take home the trophy for the June tournament. This victory would not be enough to give them the points needed to become overall season grand champions but they did finish in the top three and solidified them as league contenders. The Mothmen certainly turned heads throughout the tri-state as well, especially their captain (Clark) who had a knack for assembling talented rosters on the fly. His energy and chatter made him a natural promoter of the league and events and he immediately got to work beginning a small intermural league at Marshall University in the off-season.

Clark's talent made him an immediate stand out and when the league went changed the format the following year, he was valued to be a high commodity. Leading into the 2017 draft, he was asked to sacrifice his burgeoning Mothmen team for the betterment of the league as leadership was aiming to break up "super teams" to create better parity throughout the league. He showed great understanding and maturity beyond his years by not only abiding this but continuing to recruit players in the 2016 off season and assisting in any way he could to prepare the league for the upcoming season. When draft day arrived, he was drafted as the #2 pick overall to the Thunder Ducks and was a vital ingredient to the team finishing second overall that season. Perhaps more impressive is that Clark demonstrated that he was not only excellent at slow pitch but at fast-pitch as well given the league's 50/50 season format, leaving no doubt that he was an elite player at any level (or incarnation) of our league.

Clark also received an invitation to join the league's NWLA regional team (Saved By The Balls) that went to Wilkes-Barre, PA to compete for a spot in the national tournament. They'd lose against Ridley Park after initially having a lead that would send them home. The disappointment would unlock a determination within Clark to build an even better team to qualify for that national tournament and he would work with Jeremy Ray immediately on building such a squad. The following year he took over the NWLA team creation duties and named the team Mothmen and they would finally qualify for the national tournament in Morenci, MI. 

Clark joined the league organizing committee in it's final year (2018) and was a vocal member that kept players engaged and informed and was a key promoter. He also capped off his explosive career with .611 / 26 HR / 42 RBIs and led the Mothmen to a league championship, which has been something he's been searching for since stepping on the field for the first time in 2016. Clark later founded Wild and Wonderful Wiffle in Mason, WV in 2019 and has been playing on the tournament circuit in Mid-Atlantic Wiffle and has supported local events such as Amy for Africa (AFA) Wiffleball Tournament (Ashland KY), London Wiffleball Tournament (London OH) & our very own Hallowiffle tournament.
