The Sun Lakes Senior Softball Association’s winter season opens on Tuesday, January 5. For the first time, our league will have seven teams vying for the title. Each team plays a 24-game schedule. Team sponsors are: A-1 Golf Carts, Brenden Financial Planning, Farmers Insurance (Frank Margiotta Agency), Mutual of Omaha Bank, State Farm Insurance (Ralph Vasquez Agency), Terry and Susan Young West USA Realtors and Wolfe & Associates Tax & Accounting Services. Team managers for the winter season are Ken Brenden, Mike Gloyd, Gary Hatch, Gary Hillabolt, Larry Kaufmann, John Seigla and TJ Tjernlund.
Our fall season ended on December 17. Entering the final week of the season, Manager Larry Kaufmann’s A-1 Golf Carts team held a slim one-game lead over Manager Mike Gloyd’s West USA Realty squad. The top hitters, based upon a minimum of 50 plate appearances, were Chuck Myrick (.800), Larry Kaufmann (.779), Bill Corso (.766), Tim Baldwin (.761), Chuck Swanson (.740), Dennis Bernaiche (.727), Ken Brenden (.723) and Bill Cheney (.722).
