Broward Factory Serv - 18 T Pham Dentist - 6
"Broward Factory Services played the last game of the day. It was warm and just right for softball. The weather seemed to agree with the BFS team as the defense shut down TP Dentist, allowing only 6 runs in 6 innings. The dentists didn’t score any runs until the 4th and 5th innings. On the offensive side, BFS scored in every inning where we ended the game 12 runs ahead. Leading the offensive charge were Mike Dakak and Ted Grove both going 4/4, Ted with a walk. Mike Dakak delivered a triple, 2 doubles and a single. Ted delivered a triple and 2 singles and had the walk. This was followed by both Glen Ryan and Howard Sumner with 3/4 days at the plate. Howard gave us 2 singles and a double. Glen Ryan drove the ball to the wall 3 times. Ray Hensley banged out a 3/4 day as well. This was followed by Bob Charette with a 2/4 day and Randy Van Wagner, hitting the ball hard, also banging out a 2/4 day, followed by Ron Rogerson also with a 2/4 day. Larry Smith went 2/3, 1 BB and 1 double.
Sub Klaus Holt, playing catcher banged out a 1/3 day as well. Lastly, Les Bonde, playing RF, managed a 1/3 day. In all, BFS’s bats delivered 28 hits to 42 at bats, a really good day at the plate. The Defense was so tight that we didn’t allow anyone to cross the plate until the 4th inning, allowing only 2 runs. We swayed a bit in the 5th and allowed 4 runs, other than that, the defense pretty much shut down the Dentists. The Team thanks Klaus Holt for filling in at the catcher spot on our last day before Xmas break. Everyone have a safe and enjoyable Christmas.
Can’t blame the shoes this week as TP Dentist was kept in check by a good Broward Team. TP Dentist did not get on the scoreboard until the fourth inning while Broward scored in every inning and eventually ended the game early. There were some highlights…Chuck Gibson (2 runs, RBI, double) and Bill Janowski (homerun shy of the cycle) were a perfect 3 for 3 at the plate. Also perfect at the plate with 2 hits each were Jack Indig (run) and Bob Lessard (run, double). Tim Schiewe (run, RBI) added a couple hits. Contributing a hit each were sub Pierre Boudreau (RBI), Rocco Jankowski (run, 2 RBI) and John Conacher. Barry Delano rounded out the offense with a sacrifice fly. Thanks to Pierre for subbing. Happy Holidays to all as we head into the break and the Dentist will re-group and be ready to come out strong in the new year.

CORE Institute - 8 Broward Factory Serv - 6
Bit of a defensive battle with BFS --- and you know how I love defense! We had 3 double plays along with several other excellent infield moves. Outfield did its job as well when called upon thanks to Art Molina, Pete Semenak, sub Greg Allseitz and Ray Kuntz. As for offense, a special note goes to Art Molina, Pete Semenak, Russ Figueroa, Bob Dooling & Greg Allseitz. Thank you to our subs this week--- Greg, Russ, Mike and Fred. We could not have done the game without you....literally.
Broward Factory Services on our 3rd game of the season lost to the Core Institute 6 to 8 in the final inning of our 8:30 am game due in part to a controversial call and closing the door on any chance of going ahead. The morning was cool and cloudy and our bats just couldn’t get hot. Defense was stellar, holding the Core to just 8 runs. BFS was ahead by 1 at the end of the 4th inning but lost that edge in the 5th where Core put up 4 runs to our 2. In the 6th Core put up 1 more run giving them a 2 run lead. Then in the 7th inning the BFS bats started to warm up but could not put any runs across in the top half of the 7th. Offensive charge was lead by Mike Dakak with 4 hits with 4 at bats. Howard banged out a 3/4 game including our only double. Ted Grove went 1/2 and drew our only walk. Everyone else had at least 1 hit. It was a great game. The team would like to thank Paul Larson playing at 2nd base, helping us with a 2/3 day. We’ll come back next week.
Dillon's Restaurant - 12 Angela's Kitchen - 11
Throughout the game the score was close or tied and it wasn't until the last inning that Dillons gained its win. Greg Allseitz led our team's batting production with 2 home runs and 2 singles to drive in 6 of the Dillons team's 12 runs. Bob Husick (2 RBI's), Don Trenda and Fred Lubs each contributed 3 hits. Vern McMurray (1 RBI), Joel Last (1 RBI), Daren Proctor, Mike Ryan and Jeff Silversteen each had 2 hits. Allen Bellew (2 RBI's) and Klaus Holt each added 1 hit.
"A well played game by both teams but a tough loss for Angela's Kitchen with Dillon's Restaurant squeeking out a 12-11 win. Angela's down by 2 runs in the top of the seventh plated 1 run and had runners on second and first when the final out was recorded. Bob Snelling led the offense with a 4-4 day, 3 Runs Scored and RBI. Sub Jay Schirpke had an awesome game 3 Hits including 2 Inside the Park Home Runs, 2 Runs Scored and 7 RBI. Also with 3 hits Jeff Nickerson and Bob Hudson. Hudson had a RBI and Nickerson and 2 Runs Scored. Dick Hansen and Joe Stempniewski had 2 hits each, Stempniewski a Double, 3 Runs Scored and Hansen an Inside the Park Home Run to lead off the game, RBI and Run Scored. Angela's is a much better team then our 0-3 record would indicate. Hopefully, we will get on the right track next Saturday.
NW Phys Therapy - 16 T Pham Dentist - 6
"Northwest Physical Therpy and Thomas Pham Dentists were tied 4-4 at the end of first inning. Northwest won 16-6 with good defense and timely hitting and great pitching. The bottom 5 in the lineup hit 600 and each team mate had an RBI. Leading hitters were: Ken Krzsminski 3-3 BB 3B 4RBI, Greg Church 2-2 BB RBI, Jay Schirpke 3-4 2B 3B HR 2RBI, Buck Craig 3-4 2RBI. Players getting 2 hits: Don Knowles, Sub Pete Semenak, Marv Mathews and Jerry Eastham.
"TP Dentist came out hot with the first 6 of 7 getting hits and the other was a sacrifice fly to score 4 runs quickly. Too bad the game did not end there though. The novocain must have kicked in as the Dentist’s did not inflict any more pain and the Physical Therapists extracted a 16-6 win. The team could not string many hits together after that and 15 of the 16 hits were singles. Leading the way with three hits each were Chuck Gibson (run) and Tim Schiewe (run, RBI). Jack Indig and Bob Lessard had two hits each. Bill Janowski (run, RBI) had three productive at bats with the only extra base hit (double), a walk and a sacrifice fly. John Conacher (run) had a hit, sacrifice fly and the only one with multiple RBI (2). Contributing with one hit each were sub Jim Opyd (run), Barry Delano, John Hardy (RBI) and Doug Johnson (RBI). Lonnie Saiz rounded out the offense with a walk and a run scored. Barry pitched well to keep the team in striking distance for most of the game until late and the defense did their job as Northwest PT just hit the ball well. John was solid at shortstop with 3 assists and putout, Chuck at second base with 4 put outs, Jim with three nice catches in left center and Bill with three putouts at first. Rocco will be back next week with his glow in the dark shoes…we won’t blame him for the loss but will blame him or not leaving the shoes for the replacement manager. Thanks to Jim Opyd for subbing.
MidFirst Bank - 12 Vital Care Rehab - 6
The MidFirst Bank sponsored softball team in the SCG Saturday league defeated the Vital Care Rehabilitation sponsored team 12-6 on Dec 7th to win their first game of the rain interrupted fall season. Defenses of both teams dominated the first 3 innings, and the Bankers trailed 3-1 going into bottom of the fourth inning.

Backbone Chiropractic - 9 Sunrise Valley Pharmacy - 12
Backbone Chiropractic dropped its third game of the season, this time by a 12-9 margin. The team defense was spotty, allowing a number of unearned runs; yet, ironically it could have been worse if not for several runners thrown out at the plate and second base from the outfield. Paul Jinneman 2 for 3 with 4 RBI led the offense. Becky Holliday and sub David Bagwell each were 2 for 3 with 2 RBI. Sub Howard Sumner with 2 doubles and a triple and Jim Opyd with 2 double and a RBI each went 3 for 3. Norris Carpenter had a strong game in left field and was 2 for 3 .
Despite the poor judgement of the manager, at times, the team still pulled out a win today. Good defense and some timely hitting were the key factors in the Team effort, for the team collected 21 hits, and shut the opposition down in 4 of the 7 innings. Big hitters were John Conacher, going 4 for 4, Don Hansen 3 for 4, Ron Kaleta 3 for 4 and Dick Nunez 3 for 4 (5 RBI's). Collecting 2 hits each were Tom Yurkunas and Russ Figueroa (getting a HR and 3 RBI's). Next Game: December 14th 8:30 VISITORS

In the bottom half of the inning, the sun came out and our bats got hot scoring 5 runs for the one run win. Our defense was strong again this week. The offense showed up with 25 hits against 40 at bats, not a bad day. Glen Ryan and Howard Sumner both had 4/4 days at the plate. Howard delivered 2 doubles, a triple and a single with 2 RBI’s.

The Northwest Physical Therapy Team and Vital Care both put up 4 runs in the 1st inning and again in the 5th in a tight game.

Vital Care Rehabilitation started strong ,but could not contain the Northwest team, and lost for the second time 16 to 10. Mike Wunsch and Brian Holiday had strong games, with 3 hits each.

Core Institute - 13 Dillon's Restaurant - 14
Great game against Dillons. We ended up losing by a point, well rounded teams on both sides. At the plate, kudos to Art Molina and Bob Dooling, perfect for the day and Dave Zucker was our home run hitter. Defensive notable plays include: Wayne Siers----strike out, Dick Steiman---caught a well thrown ball from Dave Zucker to keep a run from scoring, Art Molina---a couple of outs in left field. Thumbs up to to the infield with multiple outs. Looking forward to next week but suspect the game will be a tough one. So spend the week eating Wheaties and cut back on the Bud Light. We are in training. (<------ Editor's note: Priceless!)
Today's game was very competitive with The Core Institute scoring 4 runs in the 5th and 6th innings to come within two runs of the Dillons Restaurants team.

CORE Institute - 8 Backbone Chiropractic - 7
The CORE Institute Team started the new season with a new color and with new jerseys and with a hard fought win. It was a pitchers battle with CORE coming out on top 8-7. Backbone scored 3 in the first and CORE matched them. Backbone scored three again two innings later and CORE matched them again. Finally in the 5th CORE took the lead on a two run home run by sub Greg Allseitz (though he did run through a stop sign and scored with a half step to spare) and then held on as Backbone scored one in the 7th and threatened to tie or take the lead but ended the game on a line out. Greg led the team going 3 for 3, scored 3 times and drove in 3 (double, HR). Art Molina (3 for 3, run scored, 3 RBI) and sub Tim Schiewe (3 for 3, 2 runs, double) were also perfect at the plate. Three others had multiple hit games - Pete Semenak (2 singles and a run), Bob Dooling (2 doubles, 2 RBI) and Ray Kouns (2 singles). Dick Steiman and Wayne Siers chipped in singles to round out the offense. Backbone threatened a few times but the defense continued to come up with big plays with throwing runners out on the bases, turning double plays and making great catches on line drives and deep fly balls. The key to the game however was the excellent coaching decisions made during the game - which was basically stand there and do nothing and let the team play so he did not mess anything up until Manager Jon Chlebeck is back next week to lead the team. Thanks again to the subs Tim Schiewe and Greg Allseitz.
