The State Farm Insurance team, managed by Larry Kaufmann and sponsored by the Ralph Vasquez Agency, captured the winter league pennant with a sparkling 16-4 record, easily besting the second place finishers, Brenden Financial Planning, who completed a 13-9 campaign.
Larry Kaufmann led all hitters at the break with a .821 average, followed by Reyes Gonzalez (.787), Steve Hilby (.772), Bill Corso and Tom Kasunic (both at .743) and Chuck Myrick (.734).
The winter league regular season play was followed by a three-day double-elimination tournament. See a separate article in this edition of the Splash for the tourney results.
Our spring season is now well underway and runs through late April. See next month’s Splash for the final spring season standings and statistics. Current information is also always available on our website at ww.sunlakessoftball.com.

We were saddened to hear of the recent passing of former association member and softball player, Tom Medlin. Our condolences go out to his wife, Karen, the rest of his family and his many friends. RIP, Tommy.
