The Brenden Financial Planning team, managed by Ken Brenden, won the Spring Sun Division League title with a sterling record of 15-3. In the Lakes Division, the Wolfe & Associates squad, managed by Randy Rothenbuehler, topped their division with a record of 12-6.
A recap of the season-ending double-elimination tournaments will be covered in the next edition of the Splash.
We now enter our summer recreational program. The Field of Dreams is open every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday morning for batting practice and pick-up games. This is the perfect opportunity to get in shape for next fall’s formal league play. See our website (www.sunlakessoftball.com) for start times and other information.
Here are the top five hitters in each division covering all three seasons (fall, winter and spring) and based upon a minimum of 150 at bats, excluding the spring tournaments:
Sun Division: Reyes Gonzalez (.873), Mark McKinnon (.817), John Whitman (.765), Larry Kaufmann (.755) and Steve Hilby (.750).
Lakes Division: Bill Stanick (.753), Jim Entwistle (.713), John Seigla (.689), TJ Tjernlund (.661) and Hal Kime (.658).
Congratulations to Reyes Gonzales, who set a new all-time hitting record with his .873 average this year. The previous record of .838 was set by Mike Wolfe in 2012 and matched by Larry Kaufmann in 2013.
Our thanks go out to Dr. Kent Saba and Dr. Robert Romanin of Saba & Romanin Dental Associates for renewing their advertising banner at the Field of Dreams. The good doctors have been advertising at the field since the year 2000, making them number two in “seniority” to Walgreens (1998). Thanks to all of our advertisers and team sponsors.
