Our 60 Plus tournament team, sponsored by Brenden Financial Planning, recently escaped the heat by participating in the annual Pinetop Senior Softball Tournament. Even though the weather was about 20 degrees cooler than here in the Valley, our boys ran into some hot teams and finished the tourney with two wins and three losses. Two of the three losses were one-run heartbreakers, including the semi-final game that could’ve allowed the team to reach the championship round. Our top hitters were Gary Hatch (.789), Sam Giordano (.750), Ken Brenden (.733) and Jim Entwistle (.714). Entwistle, Giordano, Steve Schaider and Chuck Schaan smashed homeruns for the Sun Lakers. A fun time was had by all.
Our summer program continues through late October and features a round of batting practice followed by a pick-up game. The Field of Dreams is open every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday morning. Come by the field and get in shape for league play. See our website at www.sunlakessoftball.com for start times and other details.

Just wondering – Why do we sing Take Me Out to the Ball Game when we’re already there?
