Liberty GMC - 16   Canyon State - 4
What a wonderful softball game today.  Thank you to everyone who came out today to recognize Les Bonde.  After 16 years playing softball at SCG, Les is moving on to the Atlanta area.  Les went 3-3 today with a walk off winning home run.  We all wish Les the best and thank him for playing and being a great team mate. Liberty GMC ended up 3 games over .500.  It was a good season. We hit the ball well and made many great defensive plays. We had a great mix of players that melded well, played well, and most importantly; had fun.  Thank you to our manager, Ed Musgrave.  You did a great job.  Thank you to umpires, to Jeff Nickerson and all the substitutes he provided and to the scorekeepers.  As always the field was in exceptional condition every day, every game.  Thank you to Jim Opyd and his team. 
Last game of the spring session it didn’t go well for us. not much offence leading hitters Mike Anderson  2for3 Ron Swanson 2for3 Bob Snelling 3for3. Our defense was not much better Why ever Les got a home run again us😇👍 seriously have a safe trip and we wish only the best for les.he was  a great teammate and a better competitor
Susy`s Home Cleaning - 9   Happy Ears Hearing - 8   
In the final game of a very successful Spring Weekday Season, Susy’s Home Cleaning came out on top in a very closed game, that went back and forth, against Happy Ears Hearing 9 to 8.  Susy’s played a little upside down (on purpose)  and moved around a lot on defense – no more than Glenn Soles who played just about every position.  Glenn and subs Dick Nunez and Russ Figueroa were perfect at the plate (driving in 7 of the 9 runs).  Almost perfect were Gene Fleck and Mike Wilton with two hits each at the top of the line up and Robert Blainey, Les Zirbel and Greg Allseitz with two hits each as well in the middle of the lineup.  Suzy’s had a 9-6 lead going into the top of the 7th inning but could not put more distance between them and Happy Ears.   Happy Ears then plated 2 runs and had the bases loaded but a line drive to Les at Rover ended the game.  Key defensive plays were catches at home by Gene to cut down two runners and a great running catch down the first base line in right field by Dick to start the 7th.   Once again congratulations to the entire Susy’s Home Cleaning Team for their Championship.
The Happy Ears Hearing Center Team ended their spring session with a 9-8 loss today to the spring session champs, Suzy's Home Cleaning. The score was fairly close throughout game with the lead slowly moving to Suzy's favor in the middle innings. Down by a score of 9 to 6 going into the last inning, Happy ears was able to tighten the score to 9-8. With runners in scoring position Happy Ears' luck ran out when the final out was made sealing the win for Suzy's. Two unsuccessful attempts to cross the scoring line early in the game proved to be the margin of our loss. Top batters for Happy Ears were Don Cole (4-4), Skip Pavitt (4-4, 1 RBI), Ed Campbell (3-4, 1 RBI), Sub Don Ranieri (2-3, 1-2B, BB), Al Miller (2-3) with the rest of the team contributing hits in the loss, Thanks to umpire crew of  Bob Snelling and Don Trenda, Scoreboard manager Mark Jessen and Jim Young for managing our scorebook. Special thanks to the Commissioners Pete Semenak, Dan Newman and Jeff Nickerson who also functioned as the sub Czar.

In the last game of the season the Team pulled out a victory. starting the game  as usual, with 8 runs in the first 3 innings, the team played good defense to secure the win.

Happy Ears Hearing - 13   Backbone Chiropractic - 5  
The Happy Ears Hearing Center rebounded from a rousing defeat in their prior game to defeat the Backbone Chiropractor team today by a score of 13-5. After 3 innings the game appeared to be a "here we go again" situation from our last game as Happy Ears scored 1 run in the first inning and zero runs in the following two innings. Fortunately the bats came alive in the later 4 innings and the Happy Ears team pushed across 12 runs to leave the final score at 13-5. Sub Don Ranieri led the team with a 4-4 day that included 2-2B and 1-3B hits and 2 RBIs. Also having good days were Tammie Songer (2-3), Jim Opyd (2-3), Don Cole 2-4, 2 RBIs), Skip Pavitt (2-4, 4 RBIs), Bob Cary (2-4, 2 RBIs). Amazing example of how well-timed hits produce runs.

Thanks to umpires Norm Volk and Michael Wilton, Scoreboard Keeper Mark Jessen and scorebook keeper Dan Newman.

Susy's Home Cleaning won to day 12 to 4. I think everybody had fun today. Thankyou to Eileen Figueroa for keeping book.

Susy's Home Cleaning won today with a score of 17-5. Thank you to our subs today.  Ray Kouns in left field and Ken Carlson at 3rd base. Reviewing the game highlights:
Offensively................ Ken Carlson, Glenn Soles, Lester Zirbel and Gene Fleck all perfect at the plate. Special shout outs go to Lester with 2 triples and 1 double, Greg Allseitz with a home run. Defensively...... Ray Kouns catching a tough one in left.

The Colonnade - 11   Happy Ears Hearing - 1
Team work makes the dream work and everyone on the Colonnade team contributed to a decisive win over Happy Ears. Norm Lustig had a double play put out at home and caught a foul tip off their lead-off slugger. Artie Stackpole came pretty doggone close to a shut out. Shel Rosenthal got so carried away going for a double play that he did a somersault. Catches abounded in the OF from Kris Schwartz 4/4 with a triple, Don Ranieri 3/3 2RBIs, Ron Remm 3/3 3RBIs. Mike Sullivan was 1/3, Ron Rogerson was 2/3 2RBIs, Danny Wood 2/3 RBI and Lisa Pelletier 2/4 with more than a couple of 6-11-3 plays. Jeff Heary got in on the double play action with a quick one hop play 4-11-3. Jeff was 2/3 3RBIs.
Happy Ears Hearing Center lost by a score of 11-1 today to The Colonnade team helped along by some East Coast pitching magic done by their pitcher Art Stackpole and some defensive miscues on our part. Not a lot of stellar days at the plate to boast about when your team gets 11 hits in 31 trips to the plate (0.355 avg). Three individuals, however, did have multi-hit days; Skip Pavitt (2-3), Rick Pearson 2-3) and Bob Cary (2-3, 1 RBI) with the remaining 5 hits spread among 5 individuals. Thanks to umpires Dave Stark and Don Trenda and Scoreboard keeper Mark Jessen. Special thanks to Jim Young for managing our scorebook.

   The Colonnade - 11   Vital Care Rehabilitation - 10
When Colonnade arrived at the field this morning they knew they had their work  cut out for them. They were playing against Vital Care who had a record of 6-0 and after winning our first 2 games we had lost 3 out of our last 4 games. So we knew we had to bring our A-Plus game and so we did, defeating Vital Care 11-10. Defensively, Lisa Pelletier had an excellent game at shortstop making several short to second base outs and a couple of double plays, also going deep and  retrieving several high pops. Most importantly she caught the final out of the game with the bases loaded, the tying run at third, and the winning run at second. Mike Sullivan (Sully) had a great day at first, fielding ground balls and catching throws from the rest of the infield. Ron Remm at third base caught a hard-hit line drive, a pop-up running in and fighting the sun, catching it Willy Mays style, in addition to throwing out some runners. Offensively, every player got at least one hit, but Laura Johnson was 3-3 with a walk, Don Ranieri 2-3 with a walk, Kris Schwartz 2-3 with a walk Danny Wood 3-4 and Lisa Peletier and Sheldon Rosenthal added 2 hits each. Jeff Heary and Norm Lustig each had a key hit to help seal the victory, A great softball game for both teams.

A great effort for the boys in Pink today against a very good Liberty GMC Team.  Outfield played flawlessly as well as the infield including a great catch by Rover Les Zirbel.  Our hitting was just enough for the win as Les Zirbel also contributed a double and a triple.  A special thanks to Scott Piemiesl for subbing and to Greg Church for keeping the score card.  Looking forward to our next game this Friday at 7am.
With 21 hits and 10 runs scored for Liberty GMC. It was not enough to overcome a strong hitting Susy' Home Cleaning team. Liberty GMC was led by Brian, Dave, Dennis and our sub Jeff Silversteen with multiple hits and runs scored. Also doing well at the plate with multiple hits were Jim, Ray and Mike.
