Thank you to Bob Higgins and Steve Dwyer for subbing for Karen Olsen Real Estate.
Before this season is over the managers for Susy's Home Cleaning are going to be taking Blood Pressure medicine. Susy's hung on to win another one run game over a very good Karen Olsen team. We made some mistakes but they were overshadowed by some very good defensive plays. Sub Mike Ryan playing left field made 2 very nice running catches of fly balls hit well to his left. Arlin Mead played a solid left center field. Klaus Holt playing in right field hit his cut off who then turned and fired the ball to Dale Huffine at 3B for a tag out. And then there is the infield. What can you say when Dale Huffine, Sue Cary, Harold Enslen, Jim Tokar, and Bob Williams keep making the plays when we really need them. Offensively, almost everyone on the team had at least one hit for a team total 24 hits. Dale Huffine was 4 for 4 with a double and 4 rbi's. Jim Tokar was 3 for 3. Harold Enslen was 2 for 3 with a walk and 5 rbi's. Sue Cary was 3 for 4. Ray Hensley pitched a very good and was 3 for 4. Arlin Mead was 2 for 4 with a double and 1 rbi. Bob Cary was 3 for 4 with 2 rbi's. Bob Williams had a single and drove in a run. Terry Hughes had 2 singles. Klaus Holt had a single. Thanks go to Mike Ryan subbing for us and hanging in there after irritating his hamstring. Thanks to Marilyn for doing our scoreboard. We couldn't do it without you. A great team effort was made by all.

Regency Specialties - 9 Susy's Home Clean - 8
"For the second game of the season Regency Specialties played another one run game. This time, however, Regency pulled out a 9-8 win by holding a tough Susy's Home Cleaning to no runs in the top of the 7th. Both teams scored 4 runs in the first inning. From then on, both teams played great defense and it was tough to score runs in a back and forth game.

Regency managed only 12 hits in the game. those with 2 hits were Lee Luft, Glenn Turner including a home run, Ed Mitchell who also had 3 RBI's and Pierre Boudreau who had a triple.

Susy's didn't play their best defensive game but turned a nice double play when Bob Williams received the ball at 1B for one out and turned and threw home to the catcher Terry Hughes for the 2nd out and prevented a run from scoring. Almost everyone on the team had at least one hit. Dale Huffine led the way going 3 for 4 with a double and 3 rbi's. Arlin Mead was 4 for 4 with 1 rbi. Harold Enslen was 2 for 4 with 2 rbi's.
