Winter softball season extends to two divisions

Larry Wolfe

Beginning on opening day for our winter league on January 3, we’ll have two divisions. Given the growth in our league to eight teams and, given the wide range of ages of our members (from mid-50s to low-80s), we’ll have two four-team divisions, the Sun Division and the Lakes Division. Thanks to the following team sponsors: A-1 Golf Carts, Brenden Financial Services, Core Photography, Farmers Insurance (Frank Margiotta’s Agency), the Real Estate Rustlers (Jim Leckner’s Revelation Realty Agency), State Farm Insurance (Ralph Vasquez’ Agency), Wolfe & Associates and Terry & Susan Young’s Real Estate Agency.

Winter league team managers are Ken Brenden, Mike Gloyd, Gary Hillabolt, Jim Leckner, Dave Rinaldo, Randy Rothenbuehler, TJ Tjernlund and John Whitman.

At press time, we were entering the final week of our fall season. The fight for the pennant was going down to the wire with Farmers Insurance, managed by Gary Hillabolt, and Jim Leckner’s Real Estate Rustlers both sporting 11-5 records. The Young Realtors, managed by Mike Gloyd, were only one game back. John Whitman was leading the league in hitting with an incredible .911 average while Reyes Gonzalez and Tom Kasunic were hitting over .800. We’ll recap the fall season in next month’s Splash.
