Andy & Barney’s (17) - Fall Ballers (5)
Herb’s Hammers (15) - Autumn Smashers (8)
Andy & Barney’s (14) - Fall Ballers (13)

 

Herbs’ Hammers (15) - Autumn Smashers (3): The Hammers were led by the outstanding pitching and defense of Ron Fox in both games, also showing fine glovework was Lenny Jones, Terry Finch, Roy Woodworth, and Jeff Aiello. Leading hitters, Terry Finch, (3-3 3R), Dave Ronau (3-3 HR 2RBI), Ron Fox (2-2 BB 2R 2RBI), Mark Gedert (2-3 OTF 1B RBI), Jeff Aiello(2-3 2R 2RBI), Guy Stager (1-1 BB R RBI), Chuck McMillen (1-2 R RBI), Jack Holloway (1-1 RBI), and Kevin Koepfer added a hit, and RBI.
The Autumn Smasher's had a rough start to the Fall season losing 15 to 3 to Garys' Hammers. The offense only had 8 hits in the entire game. We threatened in the 1st inning with bases loaded and no one out but only scored one run as we got a bad break when Marty Harrison hit a smash to third that the Hammer's turned into a DP.

 

Andy & Barney’s (17) - Fall Ballers (5): A&B opened the Fall season with an impressive 17-5, 5-inning win over Rick Schmidt's Fall Ballers. The team combined speed, good defense, solid pitching with timely hitting: Neal Klopping, Phil Richard and Jim Dandar led the charge with three hits each.
Fall Ballers - Andy and Barneys won over the Fall Baller's who had trouble getting started in game #1.

 

Herbs’ Hammers (15) - Autumn Smashers (8): The Hammers were trailing 6-3 after 3, but tallied 4 runs in each of the next 3 innings. Offensive leaders: Terry Finch capped off a perfect evening by going 3-3, RBI. Rick Stager went 2-3 with an OTF HR after finding a bat he liked, this being the 5th one he used on the night. Also contributing, Roy Woodworth (2-3 2B 3RBI), Ron Fox (2-3 2 2B RBI), and Dave Ronau (2-4 2B RBI). Mark Gedert blasted a towering 3 run OTF HR and added a single and 2R. Lenny Jones was the defensive star with a spectacular diving catch, and added an assist, throwing out a runner at 2nd on a base hit. The entire infield of Fox, Woodworth, Finch, Aiello, Gedert and Koepfer were all brilliant, turning in several gems.
The Autumn Smashers played a much better second game and the lead went back and forth until the late innings when the Hammer's took control. The Smashers were led in hitting by Mark Clair and Joe Beham each 3-3; as well as Tom Spy, Terry Thomas, Marty Harrison and Ed Blankenship all who had two hits each. The Smasher's were missing a big bat in Tom Duhart for both games. The Smasher's will look to get in the win column next week.

 

Andy & Barney’s (14), Fall Ballers (13): A&B - In the second game, Fall Ballers led 13-10 with A&B at bat in the bottom of the 7th. The top of the line-up was up to the task: Chuck Feltman walked, Neal Klopping legged out a gapper for three bases; scoring Feltman. Phil Richard doubled, scoring Klopping. Two runs in. Jon Labeau drew a walk. With one out, Dan Schlenbaker singled, driving in Richard. Dan took second on the throw to third, Labeau was safe. John Kuschell grounded to SS and was out at first. Labeau raced home on the throw to score the winning run.
Fall Ballers - Game #2 Andy's rallied in the bottom of the 7th to score 4 runs to beat The Faller Ballers.

FRICKER'S 2 (19) - FRICKER'S 10 (18)
FRICKER'S 3 (14) - FRICKER'S 11 (12)

Tournament Highlights 9/18

Roosters (18) - Schneider Sons' Electric (14): Roosters Men’s Grooming Center (18) – Avenging a loss from late in the season, the Men of Roosters rose to the occasion to flick the switch and turn out the lights on a very fine Schneider and Sons’ Electric team’s season. Tight through the first four innings, the Monsters of Monroe Street were finally able to put a couple of offensive innings together by scoring five runs in the fifth and four more in the sixth innings. The defensive star ofthe game was Jeff “Mr. Hoover” Szenderski, turning in Brooks Robinson-esque gems time after time against the torrid right-handed hitters of Schneider’s. Providing the offensive power was Dave Williams with an OTF HR in his first AB after missing the previous five weeks due to an injury. Scott Gist added three hits with a plethora of Roosters’ hitters adding two hits each and Greg Ballmer adding a late-inning OTF HR.

 

Fricker's 2 (19) - Fricker's 10 (18):
Frickers #10 - A seesaw battle ended when Frickers #2 scored 2 runs in the bottom of the seventh inning. Frickers #10 played short handed starting with only 9 players. Frickers # 10 led by Randy Bores ,Darren Axon, Dan Calm with 4 hits apiece. Rick Stager and Matt Giles had 3 hits. Fricker's #10 missing Rick Hendee , Kris Brickman and Mike Gory. Good Luck Fricker's#2. Thanks to the players of Frickers #10 for a fun and sucessfull season. I think we all had a great time.

 


Fricker's 3 (14) - Fricker's 11 (12): Fricker's #3 tightened up their defense after making a couple of errors in the first inning to hold off a good Fricker's #11 team. Tim Kuszmaul led off the top of the 6th with a hit and #3 went on to score 5 runs to take a 14 to 9 lead then held off #11 for a 14 to 12 final score. Roy Woodworth had another great game at 3d base to go along with his drive to the fence for a 3 base hit. Fritz Hartkopf with a over the shoulder catch at the fence was a highlight for a outfield that played a very solid game to help the fine pitching of Ron Fox. At the plate Tom Parker and Mark Clair went (3-4) Lenny Jones and Fritz (2-3,SAC) Marty (3-3,BB) Ron and Tim added two hits each. Charlie McMillen with his great eye for strikes and being a team player, drew a big BB to lead off a 4 run 2nd inning.
Frickers #11 - Too little offense for us to overcome the timely hitting of Marty"s fine #3 squad. Hitting leaders: Joe Bondy (3-3 2B 2RBI), Mark Gedert (2-2 OTF HR 3RBI), Brett Crosby (1-1 2RBI), Jeff Huskisson (2-3 2B 3R), and Dave Kunst (2-4 2B 2RBI).

 


Allshred (29) - Fricker's 1 (22): Allshred enjoyed another excellent offensive performance in defeating a good Frickers 1 team by a score of 29-22.Allshred collected 34 total hits and batted a composite .773 in the game. Bob Miller led the Allshred attack going 5 for 5 with an OTF home run. Steve Higgins went 4 for 4 with an OTF home run while both Tim Wilde and Rob Boehme also went 4 for 4. Bob Hoffman, Gary Walton, Woody Woodrow, and Don Dheel collected 3 hits each as every player in Allshred's lineup had at least 1 hit.
Fricker's 1 - Normally, when you score 22 runs, you figure a win for the team. However, Allshred was on fire and #1 could not stop them. Scoring five runs in each inning but one, Alshred just outlasted a gusty #1 team. Frickers #1 kept pace until the 5th inning, and then could not make up any ground. #1 was led by many as all but three players had a multi hit game. Getting four hits each were Neal Klopping, Randy Rydman and Gary Beale, who had 4 RBI. The other sluggers were Randy McGraw, who got his first OTF HR of the year, a three run shot, which was followed by a solo blast from John Yocom OTF. McGraw led with 5 RBI and had a triple also. Not to be out done, Randy Wells had an inside the park HR himself. Everyone contributed and had a fun evening.
