With two weeks and four games remaining in the Summer Softball season, the Young Realty team, managed by Rick Oien, had a four-game lead over Manager Doug Friesen’s Farmers Insurance squad. Young Realty sported a 25-13 record, while the Farmers were at 21-17. One more win would catapult the Realtors to the title. If the suspense is killing you, go to our website, www.sunlakessoftball.com, for up-to-date news. We’ll also recap the full summer season in next month’s edition of the Splash.
At press time, slugger Tom “The Big Bomber” Chilton was leading the league in homeruns with 27. Other double-digit big fly hitters included “Dandy Dan” Melosi (21), “Tom Terrific” Kasunic (15), “Gonzo” Gonzales (14) and Thom “with an H” Stephens (11).
Dan Melosi was on his way to the batting title with a robust .781 average. Bob Wicks was in second place at .704, followed by Larry Kaufmann (.695), Thom Stephens (.688) and Mike Lebet (.679).
The Field of Dreams will be closed down for overseeding this fall. Check the website for dates and other details. We’ll play at Chandler’s Snedigar Park while waiting for our grass to “green up.”
The Sun Division and Lakes Division Fall Leagues will start up in late October. Schedules, sign-up procedures and other information will be on the website later this month.
And speaking of our softball website, we’re thinking of shutting it down. Why, you ask? Because it’s not getting enough hits!
