The temperatures may be sizzlin’ hot, but Sun Lakes Senior Softball carries on. Our summer recreational program includes batting practice and pick-up games every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday mornings. Check our website (www.sunlakessoftball.com) for current start times.
Speaking of sizzlin’ hot, here are our league leaders in various batting categories during our 2015-2016 program which included our fall, winter and spring seasons: Runs scored: Steve Hilby (153); Bases on Balls: Steve Hilby (36); Singles: Gene Grandquist (127); Doubles: Larry Kaufmann (50); Triples: Dave Martin (12) and Homeruns: Steve Hilby (42). Larry Kaufmann and Reyes Gonzalez tied for the regular season batting title with averages of .804, the fourth highest averages in the annals of our organization.
Our association recently lost one of its long time members, Robert “Bobby” Cantor. Bobby played in our competitive leagues for 16 seasons, and then played in our recreational program for another four years until the age of 80. In his prime, he was a slick-fielding second baseman and a pesky hitter who loved coming to the ballpark. RIP, Bobby.
