The Colonnade - 4 Treedah Magee Realtor - 15

The Colonnade team faced a team that could do no wrong today. We actually played pretty even ball through the first 3 innings, trailing just 2 to 4. Then we could just plate 2 more runs in the next 4 innings while giving up 11. Our 4 runs were all scored by our first 3 batters; Sub Steve Lunde, 2 for 3 and a triple, Ray Hensley, 2 for 3, and Dave Bagwell who hit a home run. Don Hanson was 3 for 3 and Mike Heitman and Mike (Sully) Sullivan were 2 for 3.

Treedah Magee Realtor started the 8:30a.m. game out with a well played game against a good Colonnade team and won 15-4 in a 6 1/2 inning game. Treedah's bats were hot, our defense played well and Bill Shanahan pitched another good game with 5 shutout innings. Treedah's 23 hits were led by Gary Kuhlman 3x3 3 rbi's 1 HR 1BB, John Smith 3x3, Dave Michels 3x4 2 rbi's 1 dbl, Daren Proctor 2x3 3 rbi's, Bob Williams 2x3 2 rbi's 1 triple, Bob Higgins 2x3 2 rbi's 1 dbl, Joel Last 2x3 1 rbi, Roy Sours 2x2 1 rbi 1 BB, Bob Leavengood 2x3, Bill Shanahan 1x3 1 rbi, Dale Schroeder 1x3. A big thank you to Mark Beckner for subbing for our injured shortstop, Kenny Shick.

Liberty Buick - 7 Suzy's Home Cleaning - 10

Tied after 3 innings, Liberty Buick took a slight lead which it held until the top of the sixth. Susy’s put up a four spot and Liberty was unable to catch up and the final score was 10 to 7. The game was well played, with a minimum of errors on both sides and some fine defensive plays at key points. For Liberty, it started out lo0oking like the Ron Swanson Show. Ron, batting third in the first inning, with two on, smacked a shot into right center for a three run Home Run. He had another RBI in his next at bat. And finished the day 2 for 3, 2 runs scored and 4 RBI’s. In another show of power, Gene Fleck hammered a triple in his 2 for 3 day, and scored twice. Sub Sherry Westland, despite an injury just before the game, clobbered on down the left field line for a double and went on to score on Dick Kohnen’s sharp single. Others with 2 of 3 days included Bob Dye, Jim Parry (who made the shortstop position seem as if he were born there), and Lanny Auberg. Each member of the Liberty Buick team had at least one hit, as Don Henkes, Norm Lustig, Gary Christofferson and Larry Apple and sub Dave Michels all went 1 for 3.

Susy’s won a very close game with Liberty Buick 10-7. Our record improved to 3-2. We had 18 hits. Leading the way was Sal Politi who was 3-3 with a double. Mark Beckner was 2-3 with a 3 run home run and 3 RBI’s. Dan Maguire was 2-3 with a double and 2 RBI’s. Mark Glim was 2-3 with 2 RBI’s. Kurt Kanouse was 2-3 with an RBI. Bob Lindsay was 2-3 with a big RBI. Annie Lowe was 1-3 with an RBI. Mike Ryan, Klaus Holt, and Jim Tokar were all 1-3. Terry Hughes was 1-2.

Property Sisters Realtors - 10 Van Peursem Realtor - 9

In a well played game by both teams Property Sisters won by a final score of 10-9 in a 6 inning game. The contest was very competitive thru out. It was a great team win for Property Sisters. Our defense excelled again and our offense had several key hits. Defensively our entire infield worked together to complete several double plays. The outfield continues to catch fly balls and is really great at getting the ball in quickly. Doug Aselon (playing hurt), Barney Armstrong and his little brother Gary Armstrong (sub) all were 2/3 with 2 RBIs each. Oliver Muzslay (sub) had a key triple in the bottom of the 6th inning that scored the tying run. Gary Smith followed with a basehit that scored the winning run. Thanks to Gary Armstrong and Oliver Muzslay for substituting for us today. Both players contributed to our win.

Less errors, more time to play may have made the difference for Heather Van Peursem Reality. The game timed out in the top of the seventh with 2 out, one on and 4 runs that had scored. So ,the game score reverted back to the end of the 6th. Other than that, we still need to tighten-up on our defense. The Heather team had a total of 26 hits and 5 walks. Rick Pearson: 4X4 (double and triple); Ed Abrams 4x4; Steve Rothschild 3x3+ BB +double; Ray Kouns and Ed Musgrave 2x4; Les Zirbel; Jack Braly; Steve Chambers; Jack Indig and Sam Bernhardt went 2x3. Every one got on base.

Camino Eye Care - 12 Dick Steiman CPA - 7

Camino Eye Care boys were out for a win today. Bats and gloves were well oiled. Lee Luft was 3-3, single, triple, scored 3 times. 3 R.B.I. Lee was the winning pitcher. Dave Nathe was 3-3, single, triple, home run, scored 3 times, 2 R.B.I. Pierre Boudreau was 3-3, scored once, 2 R.B.I. Neil Clewell was 2-2, double, walk, scored once, 1 R.B.I. Jim Young had a pair of hits, scored once. Gary Armstrong had a pair of hits. single, triple, 2 R.B.I. Fred Swan was 2-3 scored once. Don Fordney scored once. Frank Ranaldi had 1 R.B.I. Joey Rizzuto scored once. Jim Stocker played great defense at 1st. base. Jim Tomich had 1 R.B.I.

The Dick Steiman, CPA team dropped the game to the Camino Eye Care team as a result of hitting too many right at fielders and not being real sharp on defense. We had 19 baserunners, but we left too many on the sacks. Our hitting stars were: Bob Lessard 3/3 with a homerun, Lonnie Saiz 3/3, and 2 hits each from Al Miller, Paul Pearson, Jeff Smith and Greg Church, who also clubbed a homerun. It was a beautiful sunny day at The Field of Dreams, therefore it was a good day.

Happy Ears Hearing - 12 Brian Keep & Assoc - 21

There’s not much I can say other than we were hammered by Brian Keep Realtors 21-12. If I look into a crystal ball, they will win the division. Overall, Happy Ears played a decent game, both on offense and defense. Dave Laheey provided 2 great catches, Kevin Gillette made a nice back handed pick, and turned it into a DP. Karen Olsen made her debut at SS with her usual stellar play! Happy Ears was led by Dave Laheey (3-3) with a double, 2 RBI’s, Joe Gonski (2-2) with a HR, 3 rbi’s, Kevin Gillette (3-3) and a triple, Karen Olsen (3-4) including a booming double. With 2 hits were Dorothy Mazur (2-4), Tim Skala (2-4), Glen Zelkind (2-3), and Jack Madio (2-3) including a well hit double. Sherry Westland was (1-2) with a walk as we tried to rally in the 7th. Kudo’s to my players Karen and Dave who performed well in their new positions, and Joe who has homered in all 5 games this season. A tip of my cap to players that I had managed at one time, Don Johnson, Norm Volk( super sub), and Pat Moriarity who all came back to haunt us!

On a sunny day the Keepers were hot from the start scoring 4 to start the but the Ears scored 2. We held the Ears until the third inning when they came alive to score 4 and 4 more in the fifth. We scored enough to be a head by one going into the 7 inning. Our bats came alive for a 9 run 7th and we flip flopped. We held the Ears to one to finish the game. We produced 26 hits to score 21 which is very efficient playing. Hitting was lead by Roy Carpenter 4 for 4 with 2 doubles, Dan Hofeditz 3 for 4 with 2 doubles, Robert Blainey 3 for 4 with 2 doubles, and Don Johnson 3 for 4 with a triple. Steve Coffman was 2 for 4 with a home run, Bill Marchionni 2 for 4, Pat Moriarity 2 for 4, Les Bonde 2 for 3 and Mark Brenner 2 for 3. Every body had at leas a hit. Offense was great but defense was another story. We need to tighten up the defense for the next game.

Editor's note:
The Property Sisters versus Heather Van Peursem game has been protested. The results may change.

Dick Steiman CPA - 11 Van Peursem Realtor - 8

Dick Steiman, CPA team held on to defeat a very good Heather Van Peursom division leading team – well, “held on” is a euphemism for time ran out on them after taking the lead in the top of the 7th. We received strong offensive production from: Bob Lessard 3/3 (with a homerun and another that would have been if not for the 4th run scoring ahead of him); Ernie Huxhold (subbing for Ricky Herring) 3/3 with 3 runs scored; Greg Church 3/3; and Al Miller 2 hits & a walk. Wayne Seirs pitched a fine game keeping their guns off the bases. A win, is a win is a win and as it is our first we will take it!

This is a sad tail about, the cross-eyed cowboy who keeps shooting himself in the foot. In short, Defense won and lost the game, a few more outs for Heather Van Peursem Reality would have made a big difference. The game timed out in the top of the seventh with no outs, one on and 4 runs scored. The game reverted back to the 6th. The 7th inning should not have been played. We still would have lost. Other than that, we need to tighten-up on our defense. The Heather team had a total of 20 hits. Ray Kouns: 4x4 + HR; Ed Musgrave 2x2 + 2BB; Rick Pearson: 3x4; Les Zirbel hit a triple; Steve Rothschild, Steve Chambers and Sam Bernhardt went 2x3.

The leading hitters for Property Sisters today were Bobby Dooling 2/3 with a 2 run homer and Kat Melton who was 4/4. Thanks to our 3 substitutes for helping us out today.

While its defense was admirable, Liberty still allowed its opponent, Property Sisters, to score 9 in a seven inning game. Notwithstanding the loss, its first of the year, kudos need to go out to left-fielder Bob Dye, who, after missing the first game, made two great catches in the first inning. Bob was also the only team member to have a perfect day at the plate, going 3 for 3, and scoring one of Liberty’s few runs. Ron Swanson had 3 hits in 4 trips and also scored a run.

Suzy's Home Cleaning - 9 Property Sisters Realtors - 8

It was another beautiful day for softball in Sun City Grand today. In a well played and close game Suzy's Home Cleaning defeated Property Sisters Real Estate by a score of 9-8. At the end of the 1st inning Suzy's led by a score of 4-2. From the 2nd inning to the end of the 7th inning neither team ever lead by more than 1 run. Hats off for a well played game by both teams. The offensive leader for Property Sisters today were: Bobby Dooling 4/4 with 4 RBIs; Butch Schultz, 3/4 ; and Vikki Hanson, Ed Hart ( SUB) and Buck Craig who were all 2/3. Thanks to Ed Hart who subbed for us today.

The Colonnade - 7 Happy Ears Hearing - 12

The Colonnade team was not very good this morning. We did have some outstanding plays made and some good hits but just not when we really needed them. I think a new team that can only get better. The new scorebooks will need some study to figure out - and with the scoreboard not showing the correct score I can only report that we lost by 5 runs.

Happy Ears rallied from a 5-2 deficit to defeat a competitive Colonade team 12-7 despite the adventures of not knowing the score or inning which had everyone guessing. When all ballots were collected, it was determined that Happy Ears had more. Leading hitters were Tim Skala (3-4), Karen Olsen (3-4) and Kevin Gillette (3-3). Chipping in with 2 hits were Dorothy Mazur (2-4) Glen Zelkind (2-3) Joe Gonski (2-4) Maynard March (2-3) Greg Lynch (2-3) and Yvonne Becker (2-3). Tim added a HR with 3 RBI’s,Joe had a solo HR. and Glen added a triple that started a 4 run 5th that finally gave us the lead. They say that defense wins ball games and Karen was a vacuum cleaner at 3rd, Tim fielded his position flawlessly, and the play of the day was made by Yvonne with a back handed running catch that saved 3 runs from scoring!

Van Peursom Realtor - 18 Brian Keep & Assoc - 18

It was a beautiful day in the neighborhood. Unfortunately the sun played a major part of the game. Anything hit up in the air was a mystery as to where it would land. Both teams proved they could score runs. However Defense was a little shaky on both sides. The game came down to the bottom of the 7th, score tied 18-18, all we needed was one run. Needless to same the Heather Van Peursem Reality Team got none, 4 batters up and three outs, game over. Our Team racked up 28 hits. Top of the order scored 11 runs, Middle of the order had 3 runs and the bottom of the order had runs. Ray Kouns: 4x4 + a HR. Rick Pearson: 4x4 + HR (over the wall). The Following, all had 3 hits: Ed Abrams; Les Zirbel +HR; Steve Rothschild; Sam Bernhardt. Big thanks to Kris Koch for filling in as a sub. Next Game same time playing Happy Ears. We are the visitors. Steve Rothschild, Patti Jones and Sam Bernhardt have volunteer duties @2:50 Game.

On a hot day the Keeper's were cold thru the first two inning falling behind 7 to 2 to a hard hitting Heather Van Peurson Team. We came to life in the next inning scoring 3 but Heather scored 4 and then the hit parade was on. We tied it up in the 7th and held them for a hard fought tie. We produced 30 hits which is a record for any of my teams. Everyone had a hit and Roy Carpenter lead off the game with a homerun and 3 additional hits. Steve Coffman, Bill Merchionni, Don Johnson, Mark Brenner and Les Bonde each had 3 hits. Norm Volk, Dan Hofeditz, Robert Blainey, Pat Moriarty,and Michael Walton each deliver 2 hits. Great hitting game but our defense need to tighten up.

Liberty Buick - 14 Camino Eye Care - 13

Liberty Buick came out swinging for its season opener against Camino Eye, by scoring the maximum 4 runs in each of the first two innings and going on to win by a final of 14 to 13. Both teams tallied in every inning to keep the game close. In Camino’s final at bat, they scored twice to come within a run of a tie, but the final two outs, both towering fly balls to left field, were deftly handled by Mike Ryan, a stand-in for Liberty’s normal left fielder. Mike also had 2 hits and scored a run. Liberty’s power came through today as both Jim Parry and Gene Fleck put up identical numbers, each hitting a Home Run while going 3 for 3 at the plate, with 2 runs scored and 3 RBI’s. Gary Christofferson also had a perfect day, 2 for 2 with a walk, scoring each time and driving in 2. Also collecting 2 hits in 3 trips were Lanny Auberg, Larry Apple and Dick Kohnen. Ron Swanson swatted a triple driving in a run while scoring twice. Thank you Sun City Grand Softball Club for all your efforts in keeping the players, coaches and volunteers safe during these times.

Very hard fought game today, neither team wanted to lose. Camino Eye Care player Jim Stocker was 3-3, 2 R. B.I., and great defense. Joey Rizzuto was 3-3, double, 1 R.B.I. Pierre Boudreau was 3-4, home run, 2 R.B.I. Dave Nathe was 3-4, 2 doubles, scored twice. Jim Young was 3-4, double, 1 R.B.I. Don Fordney was 2-3, 1 R.B.I. Gary Armstrong was 2-4, triple, 4 R.B.I.
