Gothic Landscaping - 13 Property Sisters Realty - 14


"The Property Sisters were not going to end the season without a fight! Starting out with Ron Wren hitting a solo home run, things were looking good.

"Canyon State finished the season on a high note with their great defensive and offensive play against Dillon's. Almost everyone on the team had at least one hit for a team total of 25 hits out of 34 plate appearances. Except for one inning our defense was almost flawless. Pitcher Dick Kohnen and 1st baseman Norm Lustig combined for a nice double play. Jim Witkowski had a couple of nice line drive catches at his rover position. Offensively the team had 6 players that were perfect at the plate today. Buck Craig was 3 for 3 with 6 rbi's. Bob Lessard was 3 for 3 with a triple and 3 rbi's.

Mercy, mercy, me, Dillon's wasn't what they were Mon-dee. Scoreless for four innings, Dillon's "finally" hit and run, but it was too little too late for the Canyon State team who came out ready to win. Perfect at the plate were our sub, Claire Lucas who even eeked out a sneaky extra base, Les Zirbel. RBIs from Roger Mueller, Kat Melton, Jackie Couzens and Artie Stackpole.Thanks for the memories one and all, have a great summer: Mark Brenner, Don Fordney, Dale Sarrazin, Wendy Denzel, Mike McGinn, Jim Parry and Ed Schofield. That's a wrap!

Paul Tone Ins - 8 Gothic Landscaping - 15


"Paul Tone Insurance had a tough day at the ballpark today and lost our game to a strong Gothic ball team. It was a close game; we were ahead 8 to 5 until the last two inning when they scored 10 runs. We did not play a good defensive game, and we didn't hit and score like we normally do. We had a total of 19 hits but not enough runners crossing home base for a scores. Special thanks to our substitutes Mike McGinn, Ardy Robertson, Don Fordney and Tammie Songer for helping us today.

"Amazing what 5 days of rest can do for a team that was plagued by the lack of hitting disease that was prevalent in our league last Wednesday. Canyon State produced 15 runs on 22 hits out of 36 plate appearances. A nice improvement from the six runs produced in our last game. We were a little over confident going into the bottom of the 7th inning holding a 9 run lead to see it disappearing rapidly when a feisty Liberty GMC team said ""that's enough"" and plated 5 quick runs before Canyon could record an out. Once the first out of the bottom of the 7th inning was recorded, Canyon was able to get the remaining 2 outs and hung on for a 15 to 11 victory. Strong defensive play was demonstrated by pitcher Dick Kohnen as he caught two line drives and 5 or 6 ground balls that were hit up the middle and turned them into outs. Another great defensive play was made by Bob Cary running far to his right in left center field to make a back handed catch of a well hit sinking fly ball. Offensively everyone on the team contributed with a hit or an rbi. Bob Lessard was 4 for 4 with 2 doubles and 3 rbi's. Sue Cary was 4 for 4 with 2 rbi's. Sam Bernhardt was 3 for 4 and 2 rbi's. Bob Cary was 3 for 4. Kathy Boland was 2 for 3 with a walk and 1 rbi. Roy Sours was 1 for 2 with 2 walks and 3 rbi's. Al Miller was 1 for 2 with a walk. Dick Kohnen was 1 for 2 with a walk. Roy Carpenter was 1 for 3 with a walk and 1 rbi. Buck Craig 1 for 3 with 2 rbi's. Jim Witkowski was 1 for 3 with a walk, Norm Lustig had a walk and an rbi.

"

Karen Olsen pushed across 7 runs while The Property Sisters only managed to score 4. The final out was made with 2 runners on base for the Sisters.

GenEx played their best defensive game of the year. May have been 1 or 2 errors and that was it. Several players had great catches. Shelley Rosenthal made numerous line drive catches as OF Rover. Sub Wendy Denzel was the star of the game, turning 3 double plays plus 3 putouts on her own. Bruce Ketchum also made several nice catches in Leftfield. This was definitely a team effort with all players making plays. Mike Kachurak and Gary Armstrong lead the offensive with a 3/3 effort, with Gary having a HR in the 5th to give GenEx some breathing room. Pierre Boudreau, Tom Gobin, Mike Sullivan and Lanny Auberg all added 2 hits each. Only 17 hits but defense wins games. A nice 9-4 win.

Three double plays and at least an additional three put outs. A total of nine outs! That's three innings worth. A stunning defensive performance!)

Today the Barton Realtors ran into a hard hitting defensive team. The Barton realtors just couldn’t get it past the fortified left field triangle. Most of our hits were gobbled up by their SS and LF with 3B slamming the door on our offense.

It was beautiful day for a game and all Paul Tone players were looking forward to play the Dave Michels Char Wheeler Realtors Team.

We then had to ask Annie Lowe who had just finished playing a game, to come in and play left field for us. All this happened because I forgot that I needed to submit a request for a substitute pitcher.

Barton Realty - 12 Karen Olsen Realty - 5


On another really nice day for playing softball the Barton Realtors defense and offense showed up to defeat the Karen Olsen Real Estate team 5 - 12. With some subs and realigning the line-up the Barton Realtors were ahead 1 - 12 at the end of the 5th inning. In the 6th inning we gave up 4 runs and couldn’t get anyone over the plate. In the top half of the 7th inning, the Karen Olsen Real Estate team were held scoreless. Defensively the Barton Realtors made some great catches in the outfield and anything in the infield wasn’t getting through our defense. Larry Radant did a great job at 3B today with some great put outs. Debby Bigelow held down the 2B area stopping some hits coming her way and threw the runners out at first. Bobby Dooling stopped up the SS area while sub Kathy Boland plugged the middle area and covered some long balls in the outfield, great job Kathy. Bob Zech who moved to rover position pulled some hits out of the air, good job Bob. Kris Koch was not to be outdone in LF, grabbing some hard hits that came her way, another great job. Lastly, Richard Brinkley moved to 1B and did a stellar job catching every throw coming his way, I think we found Richard’s nitch. Offensively the team went 22 hits to 34 at bats, a vast improvement from our last game. Everyone got at least 1 hit with Doug Asleson Kathy Boland, Maynard March and Barry Schwartz getting doubles. Bobby Dooling delivered our only triple this game and Gary Armstrong did his thing with a in the park HR. Gary Armstrong sub pitched for Ray Hensley and did and outstanding job. Kathy Boland I can’t say enough about was the main stay to our defense today and subbed for Steve Hennefer and holding down the catcher spot was Kim Powell, thank you all for subbing today, we couldn’t have done it without you.

The sisters made a runs scoring 4 in the 4th and 4 in the 6 and 2 in the 7 but could not catch up. Hitting was lead by Jerry Eastham 5 for 5 with a double and 5 RBIs, Bob Higgins 4 for 5 with a triple, Joe Gonski 4 for 5 with 2 doubles. Glen Zelkind was 3 for 5, Bob Williams 3 for 4, John Smith 3 for 4 and Bob Craig 2 for 4. We had another game where everyone delivered at least one hit. Defense again played an important part in the game. Bob Higgins playing Short Stop made several great plays producing outs. Let's keep the streak going.

General Exterminating - 4 Camino Del Sol - 13


GenEx just could not get the bats going today. Good Camino defense pretty much shut down any offensive rallies. Scoring a season-low 4 Runs on 16hits just doesn't win games. Pierre Boudreau and sub-Mike Kachurah were 3/3. Gary Armstrong, Tom Gobin, and Mike Sullivan were all 2/3 which accounted for 12 of the 16hits. Paul Schlender made a great running catch in RF and Sheldon made some great plays at Rover. Many thanks to Jim Stocker and Marilyn and others who assisted our injured player. After a 4 game win streak and now a 2 game losing streak the team looks to regroup and be ready to play Monday.


Today Camino Del Sol took on General Exterminating and this score doesn't represent how close this game really was. Camino jumped out with a 3-0 lead the first inning followed by neither team scoring in the 2nd inning. Third inning both teams scored 1 run each and Camino held a 4-1 lead over the General. Fourth inning Camino again score one run and held the General scoreless although they were threating each inning. Fifth inning was a big inning and Camino scored 4 more runs and again held the General scoreless and they were so close to having a big inning for a 9-1 lead. Sixth inning Camino only scored one run and the General was able to score 3 runs to make it 10-3. Seventh and final inning Camino added 3 more runs and held the home team scoreless and Camino ended up with a big win 13-4 against a good hard-hitting team. We had some great defensive plays turning a double-plays and some great catches in the outfield. Big Michael Wilton struck out 3 or 4 batters with his changeup. Annie Lowe was making great catches as rover along with her going 4-4 and her in the park homerun and 3 RBI's. Kim Hurd was 3-4 with 2 RBI's. Don Cleveland was 2-3 and some great catches in the outfield one being a running shoe string catch. Special thanks to Berry Schwartz who made some great catches out in right center and was 2-3 today. Klaus Holt was 2-3 with some key hits. Duncan Abrams, Norm Volk, Patrick Moriarity, Larry Moores, Michael Wilton (winning pitcher), Bob Boche all had one key hit. Everyone on the team had at least one hit for a total of 20 hits today! Great team win today!

Barton Realty - 3 Camino Del Sol - 13


The Barton Realtors team came out slow and sluggish today. Not sure just what happened today but the Barton Realtors defense and offense didn’t show up today. In the first inning the Barton Realtors held the Camino Del Sol team to just 2 runs and then scored 3 runs off 5 hits. In the 2nd and 3rd innings neither team scored leaving the score at 2 -3, a close game to this point. In the 4th inning the defense made some mental errors and gave up the max 4 runs to Camino Del Sol and were held to no runs and the score of 6 - 3, still close. Again in the 5th neither team scored leaving the score at 6 -3. In the 6th inning we gave up 3 more runs and we were again held to no score leaving the score at 9 - 3. In the final 7th inning the Barton defense again made some more mental mistakes and gave up 4 runs to Camino Del Sol and initiating a flip with bases loaded. At our turn at bat, we could only muster 1 hit and no score ending the game at 13 - 3. The Barton Realtors could only put up 10 hits in our losing effort. Offensively Doug Asleson ripped a triple in his first at bat and went 2/3. Bobby Dooling went 2/3. Sub pitcher Gary Armstrong was the big hitter today going 3/3, all doubles. Larry Radant went 1/3, Richard Brinkley went 1/2, Maynard March went 1/2, Jeff Cretors 1/2, Debby Bigelow 1/2. That’s the way some games go, we will come back. The team would like to thank sub Don Henkes for playing catcher today and a special thanks to Gary Armstrong subbing at the pitcher spot and doing a great job.

As the visiting team, defense was critical for keeping the home team scoreless for 4 innings and protecting the Dillon's lead in the bottom of the 7th. Dillon's met the challenge and held the first place, Char Wheeler realtors, for the W. Catches galore for Dillon's. Don Fordney with a foul tip catch when we absolutely needed it. Mark Brenner roving, Jackie Couzens defending 2B for the put outs, Mike McGinn 6-3's, Jim Parry in LC, Les Zirbel at SS, Ed Schofield at 1B with a catch and an unassisted out and Roger Mueller in RC. That's why it is called a team sport. What a team effort! Perfect at the plate: Ed "Scoop" Schofield, Les "the Vacuum" Zirbel with an RBI. Roger Muller was 2/3 with a home run and 2 RBIs. More 2/3 hitters: Mike McGinn 1RBI, sub Ron "the Ronster" Rogerson 2 RBIs, Dale Sarrazin 1RBI, Mark Brenner. Hitsville: Wendy Denzel defending the middle, 1RBI, Jim Parry 1RBI, Jackie Couzens. Artie Stackpole defended the middle with 1-3 put outs, and held more than one of their big bats to infield hits with his effective pitching.

Canyon State sitting in 2nd place took on one of the undefeated 1st place teams (Char Wheeler) with high hopes of extending their win streak to 3 games. Unfortunately the bats weren't as hot as they have been and the team lost by one run 6 to 5. Offensively the team had 16 hits all but one hit were singles.

Roy Sours and Bob Cary made great running catches in left field. Bob Lessard caught everything that came his way in right centerfield.

General Exterminating - 17 Karen Olsen Realty - 15


"An exciting game to watch as both teams were pounding the ball. Both teams also played great defense. Leading the way for GenEx with 3 hits each were Pierre Boudreau, Ron Swanson, Dave Holub, and Tom Gobin, including a Home Run. Tom was also busy on defense, as an unusual number of throws to 1st Base. Pitcher Gary Armstrong was also 3/4 with a monster home run over the left-field fence and fielding a large number of balls hit back to the pitcher. Additionally 2 hits by Paul Pierson, Mike Sullivan and sub-Don Henkes. Neither team ever lead by more than 3 runs and only scoreless inning was the 7th. A true team effort was necessary to pull out the win.
"
"Karen Olsen Real Estate continued the hot hitting, but it wasn’t enough to overcome the power hitters of General Exterminating in a 17-15 loss on a breezy Wednesday morning. Karen Olsen Real Estate was led by Don Johnson, Kenny Shick and Robert Blainey (DBL) all going 4-4; Karen Olsen went 3-3 (HR); C.L.

Gothic Landscaping - 12 Dillon's Restaurant - 15


Our bats were hot thru the first 2 innings scoring 4 each inning. Then they cooled off and Dillon’s defense came alive holding us scoreless for the next 2 innings. They scored 4 in the 5th and 2 in the 6th to make it a 8 to 9 game. Then they score 6 in the 7th to put the game away. We produced 27 hits which should have produced more than 12 runs. Hitting was lead by Bob Higgins, Joe Gonski and Lee Luft all going 4 for 4. Bob Higgins had a triple and drove in 3 runs, Joe Gonski also a triple and a double and drove in 4 runs. Bob Williams was 3 for 3, Robert Dye 3 for 4 with 2 doubles, and Jerry Eastham 3 for 4. Glen Zelkind was 2 for 4. Great hitting but our defense could not hold the Restauranteurs.


Unlike the Gothic team who caught the worm, the Dillon's team was a bit slow to get started for the early morning game. Dillon's made up for the slow start with a big finish, in the top of the 7th, with 6 runs! Our defense came alive too! Wendy Denzel with 3 double plays, line drive catches and Jackie Couzens making the final catch for the 3rd out and squelching Gothic's 7th inning rally, were just the tips of the iceberg for some great defensive plays, by Mike McGinn with two hot corner catches, Les Zirbel, Roger Mueller and Don Fordney fetching the squibblers in front of the plate. Every member of the team had at least one hit today. Perfect at the plate today: Mark Brenner with a triple and RBI, Roger Mueller with 2 doubles, 1 triple and an RBI, Les Zirbel with a double, triple and 2 RBIs.

At the end of the 4th inning the Sisters were 1 run behind and going into the 7th and final inning Property Sisters was 3 runs behind, a deficit we felt we could overcome. In the top of the 7th Char Wheeler began pounding the ball and the Property Sisters defense struggled. Final score 20-9. Property Sisters played excellent defense for 6 innings and hit well.

Paul Tone Ins - 11 Camino Del Sol - 16


Paul Tone Insurance came out on the short end of the stick on this day. We were 5 runs short of a tie, and 6 runs short of a win. We had a few good hits, Ken Kessler scored once, Chuck Sawyer scored two times, Mike Ryan scored three times, Dan Hofeditz scored three times. Greg Szlak hit a home run in the fifth inning and scored twice, but we could not maintain any consistency with our bats. Camino Del Sol has a good team and they just out played us today. We have some good players on our team, this is not the first game we've lost, and probably not going to be the last, but we will not give up. Looking forward to Wednesday.


Today was a beautiful day for softball in Sun City Grand. Camino Del Sol took on Paul Tone Insurance and both teams played some good defense and offense. The outcome was closer than what the score shows. Camino jumped out to a 4-2 lead after the 1st inning. Camino was held scoreless in the second inning but Paul Tone added one run to close the gap. Third inning Camino was held scoreless again and Paul Tone added two more runs to take a 5-4 lead. Fourth inning the bats came alive again for Camino and they added 4 runs and held Paul Tone scoreless to take back the lead 8-5. Fifth inning was pretty even with Camino adding 4 runs to their lead as Paul Tone came close with 3 runs themselves. Camino kept hitting in the sixth inning adding 3 more runs and held Paul Tone to only one run. Seventh and unlimited inning Camino was held to only one run but the comeback by Paul Tone was cut short with two runs with some great defense. Hot at the plate was: Kim Hurd, Duncan Abrams, Pat Moriarity all going 3-3. Butch Schultz, Norm Volk, Michael Wilton, and Jim Smith all going 2-3. Annie Lowe was 2-4, Don Cleveland 1-3 plus a walk, Larry Moores, Klaus Holt were both 1-3. Great team effort and great hitting and defense. See you Wednesday!

General Exterminating - 12 Canyon State HVAC - 19


GenEx could not keep up with the hard hitting Canyon State team. A few untimely errors added to their run total. Sheldon Rosenthal and Dave Holub were 3/3. Gary Armstrong was 2/2 with a double and Homerun. Sub Ray Kouns, Tom Gobin, Lanny Auberg, and Mike Sullivan were all 2/3. We thank Ray and Tammie Songer for subbing.


The bats and gloves for Canyon State were hot again for us today as we extended our win streak to 2 games. Everyone on the team had at least one hit or more for a total of 30 hits. Offensively the team was led by Buck Craig, Sue Cary, and Bob Cary. Buck was 3 for 3 with an rbi. Sue was 3 for 3 with 1 rbi. Bob was 4 for 4 with an rbi. Bob Lessard was 3 for 4, a double, and 2 rbi's. Bruce Lowe was 3 for 4, a double, and 2 rbi's. Roy Sours was 3 for 4 and 3 rbi's. Dick Kohnen was 2 for 3 and 3 rbi's. Al Miller was 2 for 3 and 1 rbi. Norm Lustig was 2 for 3. Sub Don Henkes was 2 for 3 and 1 rbi. Roy Carpenter was 2 for 4 and 1 rbi. Jim Witkowski was 1 for 3 and 1 rbi. Defensively we made a couple of mistakes but strong support for each other is overcoming them. Roy Carpenter had a hard hit ball come off his chest at 3B and great hustle by Bruce Lowe to get to 3B to take the throw from Roy for a very important out. Two nice plays in the outfield by Roy Sours and Bob Cary for outs helped to prevent our opponents from scoring. Thanks to Don Henkes for subbing. Team spirit is very high right now.

Liberty GMC - 8 Barton Realty - 18


Liberty player Kurt Kanouse was 3-3, triple, scored twice, 1 R.B.I. Dave Layhee was 3-3, 3 R.B.I. Jack Braly was 2-2. Jake Groh was 2-3, scored twice. Sub Ron Silverman was 2-3, scored once. Vern Luft was 2-3, double, scored once, 2 R.B.I. John Nicodemo scored once, 1 R.B.I.


"The Barton Realtors team came out swinging on a nice warm Monday afternoon game and the defense was ready. With Barton Realtors leading all the way in a hurry up game the score was Barton Realtors 14 and Liberty GMC 7. Due to the 1:30 game going so long, the 2:45 game didn’t start until 17 after 3 pm and we ran out of time in the 6th and final inning with Barton Realtors putting up another 4 runs and holding off a Liberty GMC threat to no scores and a final score of 18 - 8. Defense was right on today with everyone holding down their positions. As a note, pitcher Ray Hensley took a line-drive off his foot in the bottom of the 5th inning but still defended his position well. The result of the line drive will be better known by Tuesday. Ray say’s it's not looking good but won’t know for sure until Tuesday. Offensively the team had 26 hits to 44 at bats. Everyone got at least 1 hit. Doug Asleson went 3/4, Kris Koch also went 3/4 including a double. Bobby Dooling pounded the ball hard, went 3/4 including 2 HR’s. Ray Hensley went 3/4 as well including a triple (or maybe it was a double that brought in the 4 run that inning). Steve Hennefer went 4/4 including 3 BB’s. Larry Radant went 3/4 as did Richard Brinkley including a double. Barry Schwartz went 2/3 as did Maynard March including a nice double. Jeff Cretors banged out a 2/3 day as well. Debby Bigelow helped the team effort with a 1/3 day at the plate. Bob Zech went 3/3 including 2 walks. A very good day offensively and defensively and lets hope the Ray Hensley’s injury isn’t serious.

Gothic Landscaping - 11 Barton Realty - 9


Gothic jumped ahead 3 in the first and held Barton to one run in the 2 and 3 to take a 7 to 2 lead thru three. Then Barton’s bats came alive and they scored 4 to make it a 6 to 7 game. In the fifth they score 2 to take the lead but Gothic came back and plated 3 to regain the lead. In the 6 each team scored one and we held them scoreless in the 7th to take the game 9 to 11. Hitting was lead by Glen Zelkind and Bob Williams going 3 for 3. Bob Higgins, Joe Gonski, Jerry Eastman, Lee Luft, and Bob Craig each had 2 hit. Bob Higgins, Jerry Eastman and Bob Williams each hit a home run to help the cause. Defense came up big too day. A very well played game.


The Barton Realtors team felt the cold morning and came out sluggish all around giving up 3 runs to a good hitting Gothic Landscaping while our top end batters were not able to score any runs, putting us behind right off the bat. Gothic continued to put scores up on the board through 6 full innings scoring 8 more runs while Barton Realtors could only plate 9 runs leaving a score of 9 - 11 in the bottom of the 6th. In the top of the 7th inning we were not able to get any hits and left the final score at 9 - 11. Offensively, the Barton Realtors batters were quite for most of the game with a spurt in the 4 inning. Everyone got at least 1 hit for 16 hits total to 35 at bats, not a good average. Doug Asleson managed to slam a triple and going 1/3. Kris Koch banged out a 2/3 game including a double. Bobby Dooling also went 2/3. Pitcher Ray Hensley banged out a 2/3 game including a triple. Steve Hennefer also went 2/3. New comer Larry Radant hit the ball hard and managed a 1/3 day at the plate. Sub Jim Dickman also hit the ball hard and included a triple in the 2nd inning. Jeff Creators went 1/3. Maynard March did very well with a 2/3 game including a double. Bob Zech hit the ball well but couldn’t get it past the infield. Debby Bigelow also hit the ball well and went 1/2 to help the team. If we took away the first inning, we would have done much better, unfortunately this won’t be our only 8:30 am game. Other than that, the game was close and the outcome could have been much better.

Suzy's Home Cleaning - 6 General Exterminating - 12


Susy’s bats were still celebrating their 33 hits from Monday’s game, that they forgot to show up at today’s game. In a 12-6 loss to General Exterminating, we only had 17 hits. Leading the way was Dave Bagwell who was 3-3 with a double, a home run, and 3 RBI’s. Dave played another great game at shortstop. Dan Maguire was 3-3 with a double and an RBI.

To complete his day, he struck out the last batter to end the game. Unbelievably there were 5 other hitters that had a triple. Bruce Ketchum, Dave Holub, Pierre Boudreau, Sheldon Rosenthal, and Lanny Auberg. Pierre and Bruce were 3/3. Sheldon and Dave were 2/3. Good defense for the most part and a good comeback from an opening day loss.

Char Wheeler tied the score 9-9 through 5 innings and took the lead 11-9 through 6 innings. Char Wheeler closed the game out in the top of the 7th inning 11-9 with an inning ending double play.

Our defense played well again with many put outs by our shortstop, Gary Kuhlman, key hitting and good pitching by Ed Musgrave with 4 shutout innings.

We thank our substitute Kevin Gillette for helping us.

Dillon's Restaurant - 13 Karen Olsen Realty - 12


The Karen Olsen team and Dillon's battled it out to the last out in the bottom of the 7th. Dillon's secret weapon, middle linebacker, Maryjo McDougall, with a tackle at 3B, couldn't keep those orange jerseys from rounding the bases. With some timely hits and defensive catches again by Jackie Couzens, put outs at the plate by Don Fordney and two strike outs by Artie Stackpole we squeezed out a win. Perfect at the plate today: Brooklyn's favorite son, Arthur Stackpole, an RBI, Les Zirbel with the winning hit, RBI, Wendy Denzel who ran, and ran, and ran, RBI. The slugger of the day was Mark Brenner, who with one swing brought in 3 runs! Roger Mueller had a triple and RBI, Jim Parry had a double and 2RBIs, Ed Schofield double and 2RBIs, Dave Sikes, RBI, Dale Sarrazin RBI and Manager JJ: one sigh of relief!


The Karen Olsen Real Estate Team lost a close game to Dillion’s Restaurant 13-12 that went down to the bottom of the seventh inning. The game started with both teams putting up goose eggs in the first inning but scoring the max of 4 runs each in the second inning. Dillion’s Restaurant put up 4 in the third to take a 4 run lead but Karen Olsen Real Estate answered back with 4 of their own in the top of fourth to tie the game at 8. Once again, Dillion’s Restaurant put up 4 in the bottom of the fifth with Karen Olsen Real Estate answering with 4 in the sixth to make it a tie game going to the seventh where Dillion’s Restaurant scored in the bottom of the inning to take the victory. Karen Olsen Real Estate's offense was led by Sherry Westland, Robert Blainey, Claire Lucas (dbl), C.L. Eversman (dbl), Ronster Rogerson and Karen Olsen all going 3-3; Don Hansen, Don Johnson, Kenny Shick, Neil Clewell and Jim Tomich (dbl) all went 2-3 with Patti Jones-Bernhardt going 1-3.

Camino Del Sol took on Liberty GMC and todays score doesn't show how close this game really was. Camino Del Sol jumped out the first inning with a 4-0 lead against Liberty GMC.

I'm not sure how many double plays were turned today but possibly 3 and a lot of great gloves by Camino today. Great game by both teams!

Property Sisters Realty - 8 Canyon State HVAC - 19


It was a beautiful day for a ball game and I believe Property Sisters enjoyed every bit of it in spite of losing. Canyon State out hit and out defended the Sisters. Property Sisters defensive highlights were two nice line drive catches, one by Joe Jellison and one by Jim Tokar. Offensive leaders were Arlin Mead 3/3 with 3 RBIs including a home run, Jeff Heary 3/3 with 2 RBIs, Dennis Colotta 2/3 with 2 RBIs,Jim Tokar 2/3 with 1 RBI and Peter McDougal 2/3 with 2 RBIs. Thanks to Peter McDougal for substituting at 1st base today. Peter did a fine job.


Canyon State rebounded from their disappointing loss on Monday by playing better defense and solid hitting. Canyon scored 4 runs in the top of the 1st inning and Property Sisters said "we can do that too" and put up 4 in their half of the inning. From then on it was good pitching by Dick Kohnen and very good defense by the infield. The Canyon outfield had very few fly balls hit to them and got the ball in quickly if it made it through the infield. Three players were perfect at the plate today. Bruce Lowe was 3 for 3 with 2 rbi's. Jim Witkowski and Dick Kohnen were each 3 for 3. Bob Cary was 3 for 4 with an rbi. Bob Lessard had a very good day at the plate going 3 for 4 and 6 rbi's. Buck Craig was 2 for 2 with a walk, a homerun, and 4 rbi's. Buck also had a nice catch of a popup behind the plate. Roy Carpenter was 2 for 3 with a double and an rbi. Roy also made a nice catch of a hard grounder at 3B. Roy Sours was 2 for 3 with a double, an rbi, and a very nice catch of a fly ball in left field. Al Miller was 2 for 3 with an rbi. Sam Bernhardt had a hit and an rbi. Norm Lustig also had a hit, an rbi and played very strong at 1B. Sue Cary drove in a run and played very well at the rover outfield position. A great team effort today.

The Sisters got off to a slow start and had to play catch up the entire game.  The new team is getting to know each other and get some of the cobwebs off the bats.  Despite scoring 6 in the last 4 innings, it was too little too late and they lost to a hard hitting Paul Tone team 13-7. Leading the scoring for the Sisters were Barney Armstrong going 3 for 3 with a triple and 3 RBI. Arlen Mead went 2 for 3 with a Home Run and 2 RBI and Jim Tokar 1 for 3 with a Triple and an RBI.

Also, Tom Gobin was 3/3.  Pierre Boudreau, Dave Holub, Dorthy Mazur, and Craig Phillips all had 2 hits each.  Thank you to our subs Dorthy, Craig and Don Henkes.
The start of a new season and spring is in the air, it must be winter in Arizona! The Dillon's grillers worked on getting the season break kinks out of their joints and bats and did their best to block the sun still low in the sky. There were some spectacular catches in spite of the sun from Jim Parry, Mark Brenner, Roger Mueller, Dale Sarrazin, Ed Schofield and in the clutch, Jackie Couzens. Ed Schofield tried his best to get all three outs unassisted, but this is a team sport, after all! Wendy Denzel defended her position for the DPs. Perfect at the plate today: Dave Sikes, 2 RBIs, Wendy Denzel, RBI, Dale Sarrazin with a double and RBI. Roger Mueller hit lead off and was 3/4 with 2RBIs and 2 doubles, Les Zirbel stopped 'em at SS and had a 2/3 2 RBI day. Contributing hitters: Ed Schofield 2 RBIs, Jackie Couzens an RBI, Jim Parry double and an RBI, Mark Brenner and Artie Stackpole, with a strike out called by Don Fordney behind the plate.  Don is saving his change-up call for another day and kept the ball from caroming behind the plate. We had our secret weapon in the hot corner today, Maryjo McDougall, with a couple of catches and put outs. Maryjo will be subbing for Dillon's again on Weds. Watch out KO team!

Camino Del Sol - 13 General Exterminating - 3


What a beautiful day in Sun City Grand and an awesome win to end this 2021 season. General Exterminating took on the home team Camino Del Sol today. Camino dominated the game but the General kept it very interesting each inning. Camino was extremely hot at the plate and jumped out to a 4-0 lead the first inning. Camino also added 2 runs in the second inning, 3 runs in the third inning, and 2 runs in the fifth inning while holding the General scoreless each of those innings. The General score 2 runs in the 6th inning but Camino added two runs again. In the final seventh inning the General added one run and Camino who didn't need their last ups and finished the game with a win over General Exterminating 13-3. Duncan Abrams, CL Eversman and Kurt Kanouse all hit in the park homeruns today. Also hot at the plate today was Steve Schneider, CL Eversman, Norm Volk all going 3-3. Ed Abrams, Jeff Cretors, Chuck Sawyer, Kurt Kanouse all going 2-3 today. Joel Last was 1-2, Duncan Abrams and Dorothy Mazur were both 1-3. Great season Camino Del Sol and pleasure playing softball with you all. I look forward to seeing you next season! Take care...

Last game of the year was the lowest scoring game of the season for the exterminators. General could get runners on but not home due to a great Camino defensive effort. Ron Swanson was 3/3 Bob Dye, Jerry Harris and Mark Brenner were all 2/3. Gary Armstrong had a Home Run that scored 2 of the 3 runs General could muster. Not the way we preferred to end the season, but all happy with the 2nd place National League finish. Was a fun year and no one was injured. All looking forward to the new season.

Gothic Landscaping - 11 Property Sisters Realty - 6


Gothic started strong getting 4 runs in the first and second innings and held the Sisters to 3 runs taking an 8 to 3 lead. Then the Sister’s defense stiffened and held us to 3 thru the balance of the game. Our defense came out strong also and held the Sisters to 3 thru the rest of the game to give us a 11 to 6 win. It was a real defensive battle. Hitting was lead by Dan Sykes 3 for 3 with a triple and Steve Hennefer 3 for 3 with a double. Getting 2 hits were Annie Lowe, Bruce Ketcham, Dave Bagwell including a double, Buck Craig with a double, Roy Carpenter doubled and tripled. Pat Moriarity, Michael Wilton, Sherry Westland and Les Bonde each had a hit. A great way to end a very good season.


"The Gothic team took an early lead and the Sisters tried to play catch up. With the score 9-4 in favor of Gothic at the end of three,the Sisters held them to only 2 more runs in the rest of the game. Sadly the Sisters were only able to put up 2 more to take a 11-6 loss. With 18 hits for the team, Bobby Dooling was 4 for 4 to end his season. Peter McDougall was 2 for 4 with a DBL and 2 RBI. Sub Dave Holub went 3 for 4 with 3 RBI and Paul Plapp finished the scoring effort going 1 for 2 with an RBI. Thanks to Dave Holub for subbing today. A BIG THANK YOU to our sponsors, The Property Sisters, who provided us with a wonderful lunch following our last game.

Canyon State HVAC - 8 Dillon's Restaurant - 5


"Division leading Dillons faced off against lowly Canyon State Plumbing & Air today, and fell by a score of 8 to 5 in the season finale. Canyon State, which had not had back to back wins all year long, managed to end its season on a high note, with two victories. The plumbers played their best defensive game all year led by shortstop Jim Parry and rover Sal Politi. Parry made catch after catch on pop flies, despite looking directly into the sun all day. He also adeptly covered second base, errorlessly. As lead-off batter he was two for three, scoring twice. Sal Politi was ranging far and wide to snag almost everything hit up the middle. After making a great grab on a hard hit ball on the third base side of second, and only a foot from the outfield grass, he pegged a strike to first baseman Norm Lustig, for “just the prettiest play all season”. Sal also drove in two runs and scored another to help the cause. Ray Kouns, playing injured following a severely torn knee, has been holding down the catchers spot to keep pressure off the injury, was lucky not to restrain it after smashing both a double and a triple (which his teammates said would otherwise be homers, but for the injury). As teammates bid goodbye to one another, they were quick to remind themselves that the new season starts in a mere two weeks. Although many of the plumbers will be separated, and will play for different teams at in the new season, the friendships and comradery from this experience will live on. Thank you, Sun City Grand Softball Club, for giving us all the chance to meet new people, get outside to enjoy the weather, get a little exercise, and participate in America’s pastime. All the best from Jim Parry, Al Miller, Ray Kouns, Bob Lessard, Sal Politi, Laura Johnson, Sam Bernhardt, Dave Layhee, Debbie Bigelow, Ollie Muzslay Dick Kohnen and Norm Lustig – the fall 2021 Blue League, Canyon State Plumbers.

"
What an incredible season for the Dillon's team. Although Canyon State bested us today, you all worked as a team and there were many times when you overcame the odds to earn another win. Savor the highlights of the season and raise a glass, or two to our championship team! Mark Beckner-SS, Duff Carroll-RCF, Don Cleveland-LF, Jackie Couzens-2B, Wendy Denzel-ROV, Kim Hurd-LCF, Joe Jellison-3B, Claire Lucas-C, Ed Schofield-1B, Dave Sikes-RF, Artie Stackpole-P, Dave Stark-OFRov and JJ Bigelow-Manager. Thanks for the memories!

Barton Realty - 8 Suzy's Home Cleaning - 16


"The Barton Realtors came out of the gate a little slow on our last game of the Fall Season only scoring 1 run in the bottom of the 1st while giving up 3 runs to Susy’s Home Cleaning. The Barton Realtors gave up another 4 runs in the 2nd inning and were held scoreless in the bottom half of the 2nd inning, not a good start, and leaving the score at 7 - 1. Defense stepped up and we held Susy’s to no runs in the top of the 3rd inning
while putting up 2 runs for Bartons and a score of 7 -3. In the 4th both teams were able to plate only 1 run each and a score of 8 - 4. In the 5th inning we held Susy’s to 3 runs while getting 4 runners across home plate and a score of 11 - 8. We were creeping up even with the sun in our eyes. In the 6th neither team scored, still 11 - 8. In the final inning, Susy’s pounded out 5 more runs and held the Barton Realtors to no scores and a
final game score of 16 - 8. Offensive results were 21 hits to 38 at bats, a respectable amount of hits. Tom Gobin banged out a 2/4 game including a double. John Nicodemo pounded out a 3/4 day including a nice double. Jeff Heary continued to hit the ball hard and had a 3/3 day including a double. Pitcher Ray Hensley also went 3/3 as did Greg Szlak. Jack Indig banged out a 2/3 game, Don Henkes also had a 2/3 game as did Paul Schlender including a nice double. Everyone else had at least 1 hit. It’s been a good season and it has been great playing with everyone on the team. I hope you all will enjoy playing on your new teams for the Winter League season."


Susy’s Home Cleaning ended the season with a bang. We won our 2nd game in a row against Barton’s Realtors, 16-8. We scattered 27 hits and everyone played a great game. Leading the way was Steve Dwyer who was 4-4 with a home run and 3 RBI’s. Steve also made some great catches in left field. Glen Zelkind was 4-4 with 2 RBI’s. Jim Tokar was 4-4. Dan Maguire was 3-4 with 2 doubles, a home run, and 2 RBI’s. Dan pitched another great game. Jeff Smith was 3-4 with a double, a home run, and 2 RBI’s.
