Lady Sluggers update


Larry Wolfe

The Lady Sluggers senior softball team wrapped up their season on February 28. The ladies want to thank the great, boisterous crowds who cheered them on at all their home games at the Field of Dreams. They’re also thankful for the support provided by members of the men’s league who prepared the field for play and provided umpires for all their home games.

This was a “learning year” for the team with lots of new players, so their record wasn’t the best, but they continued to show great improvement throughout the season. As dem Brooklyn Dodger fans used to say, “Wait’ll next year!”

At press time, Brooke Jones was the leading hitter at .750, followed by Terry Finley (.659), Ann Buckley (.625), Cheryl Loyd (.600) and Billi Jo Maggio (.585). Brooke, Billi Jo and Suzy Steinmann all hit long homeruns. We’ll provide a final recap of the season in next month’s Splash.
