Char Wheeler Riley Realtor - 14 Paul Tone Ins - 8


Wayne Siers pitching, strong hitting, and very good defense propelled the Char Wheeler-Riley team to a victory today. The team dedicated this game to its star shortstop (Sue Cary) after she went down with an injury. Let's here it for the Gipper ! Steve Dwyer had 2 doubles and a single. Mark Brenner had 3 hits with runners on base. Sue Cary, Bob Higgins (Higgs), Ed Abrams, and Bob Lessard each 2 hits apiece. Dick Steiman had a hit and a walk. Jack Braly and Wayne Siers each had a hit. Bob Cary had one hit but it was good one. Bob hit a blast over the left fielder for a homerun. Our defense was superb. We made some real important outs to stifle some good Paul Tone rallies. Higgs, Dick Steiman, and Ed Abrams turned two double plays. Steve Dwyer caught 3 fly balls in the outfield for timely outs. Sue Cary would like to thank everyone who came to her assistance today: all her teammates, especially Bob Lessard and Ed Abrams, Paul Johnston, Roger Mueller, and Kris and Ted Koch.


"The Paul Tone Insurance Team is no longer undefeated! Unable to produce against the wily slants of old pro Wayne Siers, we were unable to sustain any offensive surge – and the defense was a little lacking also. We did get a perfect 4/4 from Doug Moore, 3 hits from Craig Phillips, and 2 each from Ron Swanson, Arlin Mead, C.L. Eversman, Lonnie Saiz, sub Maynard March & Bob Craig. Excepting a double by Craig Phillips all these hits were singles. I would say that we will be better Wednesday – but it looks like we surely will be rained out again.

The score was 3-3 after the first inning, Camino scored 16 runs in the 2nd inning through the 5th inning to widen the lead to 19-10 and finally close the game out at 22-16 in a 6 1/2 inning game.

Great day for softball today in Sun City Grand today. This game started off great with a tie 3 to 3 in the first inning.

This was a close game and the score is deceiving as it was a close each inning but Camino Del Sol played some great defense and had some great hitting. Some great defense by Barton Realtors too. See you Wednesday 11:00.

Foothills Phys Therapy - 10 Thunderbird Auto - 8

Summary: WOW!! What a game. Tride and True was down by 6 going into the top of the 4th and were able to put up 3 and get back in the game. Happy Ears then answered with 4 of their own. In the top of the 5th, Tride and True put up 4 and held Happy Ears scoreless to get within 3. In the 6th, Happy Ears put up another 2 while holding Tride and True scoreless.....THEN IT HAPPENED!! Tride and True put up 8 runs to take the lead 15 to 12. A stubborn Happy Ears team was not about to give up and managed to get 3 across for a tie....which by the new rule gave Tride and True the win by 1/2 of a point. What went against the Pest Controllers last Wednesday went in favor of them today for the win. Everyone on the team had at least one hit with a total of 23 hits in the game. Leading the way for Tride and True was Denny Albers going 4 for 4 with 2 RBI and 2 DBLS, Gary Neumann going 3 for 4 with 3 RBI and Bobby Dooling going 3 for 4 and 2 RBI just missing hitting for the cycle.

Nancy Muslin Realtor - 12 Dick Steiman CPA - 9

Roger Mueller had a magnificent catch in left center. Don Fordney make a great catch in right field and also threw a runner out at first base. Our infield did a good job, however, we did have a super star today. Kenny Shick made several amazing catches, successfully dove for several balls, and had - by far - the dirtiest uniform we have ever seen. His new nickname is pigpen. Leading the way offensively were Roger Mueller who was 3-3 with a triple and an RBI; Dan Maguire who was 2-2 with a triple and a base on balls; Jim Witkowski who was 3-3 with a double and 2 RBI's; and Larry Moores (sub) who was 3-3 with 2 RBI's.

The new tie game rule of .5 run to the visitors came in to effect to decide the game fore the Generals. We produced 30 hits a high for the season but our defense came up short. Haroldooo Enslen went 4/4, Yvonne Becker, Sub Jim Smith, Ed Hart, Marilyn Leinberger, and Greg Church all went 3 for 4. 3/5 were Bob Lindsay witth a double and Dan Sykes with a triple. Dan Hofedaitz and Lorne Carlson each had 2 hits. Vickki Hanson had 1 hit. Tough game to lose after mounting a 7 run come back

The teams were back and forth in the first 4 innings ending with Canyon State ahead 12-9.

Barton Realtors - 11 Char Wheeler Riley Realtor - 11.5


This is senior softball and our team maybe doesn't work well at 8:30 AM games. We were getting clobbered by a very good hitting team Char Wheeler 10 to 0 in the forth inning and looking to get mercy win out of us. Then came 9 AM and our team came alive. We came back to a 11-11 tie to lose by the leagues new rule that visitors win by a half game if tied at the end of the game. Char Wheeler played a great game but ran out of steam and Barton Realtors has a never give up attitude and doesn't get down on each other. We held Wheeler to only 1 run the next three innings while putting 11 runs up to tie the game. Paul Johnston was huge at the plate going 3 for 3, and Annie Lowe and Norm Volks were 2 for 4. Great defense and great attitude by Barton Realtors.


"What a great way to start the day off by watching two good teams battle to a tie. The Realtors for Char Wheeler-Riley started out like gang busters at the plate scoring 10 runs in the first 3 and half innings and holding our opponents scoreless. Then in the bottom of the 4th inning Barton's woke up and out scored us 11 to 1 in the next 3 and a half innings. Barton's had the winning run on base when our handy dandy left fielder (Bob Lessard) made the last out like he has for the first 2 games. Our defense was solid in the first 3 innings but not quite as strong after that as Barton's started finding the holes. A good double play was made by Bob Higgins throwing to Dick Steiman for the force at 2B and Dick making a strong throw to Ed Abrams to get the second out. Mark Brenner made a very good catch of a line drive at 2B. Sue Cary was strong at her shortstop position catching a hard hit line drive and making numerous catches of ground balls to get the outs at 2B. Steve Dwyer and Dick Steiman each had a good day at the plate with 3 hits apiece. Sue Cary, Ed Abrams, and Bob Cary each had 2 hits.​ Bob Higgins had a homerun. Bob Lessard, Jack Braly, Wayne Siers, and Loren Hansen each had a single. The bottom of our order scored 3 critical runs to help us gain this tie. Wayne Siers pitched a very good game.

"

Tride/True Pest Control - 16 Paul Tone Ins - 16.5


Tride & True lost a heartbreaker today to a hard hitting Paul Tone team. The game was close through out with neither team ever leading by more than 2 runs. In the end the game was tied but Tride & True lost by virtue of the visiting team being awarded a 1/2 run lead to avoid ties. Thanks to sub Bernie Rosen for helping us out today. Bernie was 4 /4 today with 2 RBIs. Denny Albers was also 4/4 with 4 RBIs. Our other leading hitters were Dorothy Mazur 3/4 with 1 RBI and 4 runs scored. Bob Dooling 3/4 with 2 RBIs,Chuck Serin 3/4 with 1 RBI and Judy Muller 3/4. The Tride and True team has not won a game yet. However we are showing 3 very important qualities, we have fun, we don't quit and we show improvement in every game.


This truly is becoming a strange season for The Paul Tone Insurance team. Harkening back to the 1966 college football season when Notre Dame “tied one for Ara”, we “tied one for Andy” today and were counted as winners by way of being the visiting team – what a great game this is! Despite committing numerous defensive errors, we did get on base 30 times to score 16 runs to match that of our opponent. Ron Swanson & C.L. Eversman each had a triple and a homerun, Craig Phillips added another triple, and we got doubles from Doug Moore & Rick Barron. C.L. Eversman was a perfect 4/4 as was Rick Barron. Each of the following had 3 hits: Ron Swanson, Craig Phillips, Doug Moore, Andy Coles, Bob Craig & sub Bob Boche. Every one contributed, with Joe Bradley drawing a bases-loaded walk and plating a run with a fielder’s choice ground out. So, with a whole lot of hits and a little help from the rulebook we continue “undefeated”. (By the way: Notre Dame went on to win the national championship in 1966 – just sayin’).

Camino Del Sol - 15 Thunderbird Auto - 5


Camino Del Sol played a good Thunderbird Auto team and won 15-5. Camino's bats were hot, our pitching and defense played well, a good team effort. Camino started fast leading 6-1 after 2 innings, 14-3 after 5 innings and closed the game out 15-5 after 6 1/2 innings. Camino Del Sol's 23 hits were led by Bob Williams 3x3 3 rbi's 1 triple, Don Deach 3x3 2 rbi's 1 triple, Gary Kuhlman 3x4 3 rbi's, sub Mario McDougall 3x3 1 rbi, Doug Asleson 3x4, sub Bob Lessard 2x3 2 rbi's, Al Jay 2x3 1 rbi, Tim Skala 1x2 2 rbi's 1 HR 1 BB, Dave Michels 2x4, John Smith 1x3 1 rbi. Tim Skala pitched a good game with good defense. Thank you to our subs Bob Lessard & Mario McDougall.
The Thunderbird team had a really bad day today only scoring 5 runs in 7 innings while giving up 15 runs to a hard hitting Camino team. Mike Sullivan had a great day at the plate hitting 3 for 3. Mike Ryan was 3 for 4 and Ray Hensley, Kevin Gillette, and Vern McMurray each had 2 hits.

The bats came back to life. We had 26 hits and scored in every inning. After 3 innings it was still close with Canyon State leading 10-8, but in the final 4 innings we held Nancy's roster to only 2 more runs. Everyone had at least one hit. In addition Bob Lindsay was 2/4, Dan Sykes 3/4 w/ a double, Dan Hofenditz 4/4, Greg Church and Harold Enslen 3/4 w/ a double each, Lorne Carlson 3/4, Yvonne Becker 2/2, Marilyn Leinberger 2/3, and sub Bob Williams played a great game going 2/3 w/ a triple.

Happy Ears Hearing - 12 Canyon State HVAC - 10


Very exciting game between good teams. Close game all the way. Happy Ears Hearing, Jim Stocker was 4-4, a double, scored once. 5 R.B.I. Rick Leeds was also perfect at the plate, going 3-3, walk, scored 3 times, 1 R.B.I. Michael Wilton also was 3-3. Jake Groh was 3-4, scored once, triple. Jerry Harris was 3-4, double, scored 3 times, 1 R.B.I. Fred Swan was 2-3, scored once, 1 R.B.I. Terry Hughes was 2-3, scored once. Jim Parry scored twice, with 2 R.B.I. Jackie Couzens had 1 R.B.I.

It was a tough day hitting against a good hitting team. We went from 27 hits in the first game to 18 hits today. Dan Hofenditz pitched a good game, but we just couldn't provide him with enough timely hitting. Bob Lindsay was 4/4, Dan Sykes and Dan Hofenditz each 3/4 and a double apiece, Greg Church 2/4 w/ 3 rbi's, Lorne Carlson 2/3, and Vikki Hanson, Yvonne Becker, Les Bonde, and Ed hart each 1/3.

Thunderbird Auto - 14 Barton Realtors - 12


The Thunderbird team was in a close contest today falling behind 6-5 after 3 innings. Then our defense held giving up only 6 runs in the final 4 innings while our offense came through with 9 runs. Ray Hensley was great from the mound and the plate, going 2 for 2 with a home run and 2 walks. Paul Pearson was 3 for 3 with a double and Larry Smith was 3 for 4. Mike Sullivan had a great day at the plate hitting 3 for 3.


"Today Barton Realtors suffered their first lost of the fall season. Great game but we came in second to a good hitting team Thunderbird. Barton had a career high of 24 hits but came up short in a 12 to 14 loss against Thunderbird. Barton was on top at the end of the third inning 6 to 5. Thunderbird held us to a scoreless inning in the 4th and put up 4 runs themselves to take the lead 6 to 9. Barton came back in the 5th inning with 3 runs and holding Thunderbird to 1 run only which made it 9 to 10 Thunderbird pulls ahead. 6th inning Barton didn't score any runs and the Thunderbirds put up another 4 runs. Barton scored 3 runs in the 7th unlimited inning and had bases loaded with 2 outs for the go ahead runs but couldn't score losing 12 to 14 to the good hitting and defense of Thunderbird. Don Cole and Don Pahlke both went 4 for 4, Bob Bouche was 3 for 4 as well as Annie Lowe. This team is new and only the second game but what I like about this team is they don't give up, back each other up, and no one gets down on anyone who might make an error, after all, this is senior softball and we are having a great time.

"

Paul Tone Ins - 16 Dick Steiman CPA - 15


The Paul Tone Insurance team came away with narrow a victory in todays game – but I am not quite sure how we did it? We played a pretty sloppy game and gave them several runners via walks. Of course, they walked some of our batters also, especially 2 in the last inning setting up our game winning hit by Ron Swanson (who was a perfect 3/3 on the day). We did get 26 hits plus 4 walks, so that was good production. Craig Phillips & Doug Moore were both a perfect 4/4. The really big hit was by Arlin Mead: a bases-loaded homerun in the 2nd inning that rejuvenated us after we had fallen behind by 5 runs. Doug Moore also knocked in 4 runs with his hits. We did turn several key double plays and sub Maxine Kirchgessner played an outstanding game at 2nd base as well as getting on base 3 times – thanks Max! So, while good defense usually is behind close wins, apparently getting lots of runners on base and a couple of double plays can also be a successful strategy.


Getting off to a fast start Steiman scored 10 runs in the first 3 innings but then only scored 5 runs in the last 4. Having the lead in the 7th inning, Stieman gave up 3 runs in a losing effort. Our top hitters were Joe Gonski 4/4 with 2 home runs, Richard Brinkley 4/4, Dave Martin 3/4 and Jim Young 3/3. Dave Stark did a good job getting 3 walks. Thanks go to Greg Church, Dave Martin and Roger Miller for subbing.

General Exterminating - 11 Camino Del Sol - 16


General Exterminators had a real battle today against a very good Camino Del Sol team. It was a 10-10 tie game after 4 innings but General Exterminators stopped hitting in key situations and fell to Camino in a 16-11 loss in a 6 inning game. The Generals had 25 hits but most were singles that did not produce enough runs against the extra base hitting Camino team. Ray Kouns, Bob Dye, Sal Politi, Marty Jiminez (3RBI), and Dick Kohnen all had 3 hits today. Duff Caroll had 2 hits and a walk with 2 RBI. Lanny Auberg, Tom Sanders, Al Miller, and Jim Ladd all had 2 hits.


Camino Del Sol played a tough game against a good General Exterminating team and pulled out a 16-11 win. The game was close through 4 innings with the score tied 10-10.

Tride/True Pest Control - 10 Char Wheeler-Riley Realty - 16


"Going into the bottom of the 3rd inning, the Tride and True gang found themselves down 12-0. But did they just roll over and give up? A resounding NO. They put up 4 in the bottom of the 3rd and 4th innings while holding the Realtors to 0 in the top of the 4th. The Realtors put up another 4 in the top of the 5th and the Tride and True gang came back with 2. Holding the Realtors to 0 in the top of the 6th the Tride and True gang needed 7 to win. Sadly they weren't able to put the hits together and lost 16-10 to a hard hitting Realtor team. Leading the way for the Tride and True gang were Bobby Dooling going 3 for 3 with a double and 2 RBI and Denny Abrams going 2 for 3 with a double and 3 RBI. Chuck Serin, Butch Schultz and Paul Plapp were all 2 for 3, each adding an RBI and Plapp having a double. Judy Muller was 1 for 3 with an RBI and Terry Braun was 1 for 2 with an RBI.
"
The Realtors for Char Wheeler-Riley came to the game ready to hit. The Realtors put up 12 runs in the first 3 innings but that didn't intimidate Tride & True. They came back with 8 runs in the 3rd and 4th innings to make the game a lot closer then we thought it would be. The Wheeler team plated 4 runs in the top of the 5th that helped clinch the game. Ed Abrams had a really good day at the plate with 3 hits that included a triple and a home run. Steve Dwyer had 3 hits with one of them being a double. Bob Cary and Mark Brenner each had 3 hits. Sue Cary had 2 hits and a great catch of a hard hit line drive. Dick Steiman had 2 hits and numerous assists for outs at 2B. Higgs, Bob Lessard, and Jack Braly each added a hit. Higgs had a good defensive day at 3B. Bob Lessard made a good catch in left field for the final out. It looked just like the play he made a week ago for the final out.

Nancy Muslin Realty - 11 Foothills Phys Therapy - 7

Char Wheeler Realty - 15 Dick Steiman CPA - 13


"The team of Char Wheeler-Riley started the season out on a very positive note. We bent a little bit defensively but managed to come out on top over a very pesky hitting Dick Steiman team. Bob Higgins (Higgs is his new nickname) led the team with 3 hits that included a triple and a homerun. Sue Cary, Ed Abrams, Steve Dwyer, Bob Cary, Dick Steiman, Mark Brenner, Wayne Siers, and Loren Hansen all chipped in with 2 hits apiece. Yes. You read correctly. Wayne Siers had 2 hits. Steve Dwyer contributed a triple and Dick Steiman chipped in with a key double. Bob Lessard chipped in with a single to round out the offense. Great day for softball and friendship.

"

Also contributing 3 hits each were sub Bob Cary, Arlin Mead, C.L. Eversman, Doug Moore and Andy Coles. C.L. Eversman pitched through a little first game rust to twirl an outstanding game and was given strong defensive support by the whole team. Fun in the sun - it was a well played game by the whole team.


The Therapist did not bring their bats such a beautiful day at the opening game for both teams. The Insurance team mercied the visitors in the 6th inning. The team could only muster up 8 hits, with Ernie Huxhold and Jack Madio getting 2 hits each. The defense and hitting will get better for we did have fun and not one got hurt. Next Game: Wed.
