Andy & Barney’s (18) - Autumn Smashers (6)
Herb’s Hammers (24) - Fall Ballers (20)
Andy & Barney’s (19) - Autumn Smashers (16)

 

Herb’s Hammers (18) - Fall Ballers (11): The Hammers came away with the win in large part because of the offensive onslaught of Mark Gedert. Mark tallied 3 OTF HR's, a BB, with 8RBI. Others: Kevin Koepfer (3-3 2B ), Rick Stager (2-3 2B), Guy Stager (2-3), Jeff Aiello (2-3), Chuck McMillen (2-3), Roy Woodworth (2-3), Jack Holloway (3-4), and Dave Ronau (3-5 3B). Fall Ballers fell to Herbs Hammers in the first game 18-11. We were off to a good start but lagged at the end. A highlight was Dave Oberts over the fence home run.

 

Andy & Barney’s (18) - Autumn Smashers (6): ANDY & BARNEY'S bats came alive with 22 hits, good for 18 runs. The defense was superb, holding the Smashers to six runs in the first game of a Fall double-header. Chuck Feltman, Phil Richard, Rob Boehme and Jim Dandar had three hits each. Neal Klopping was 2/4, with an INTPHR. Boehme added some punch with a double and triple.
Autumn Smasher's - Game #1 was a tough game for the Smasher's. We got behind early and struggled to put runs on the board and as a result we lost in 6 inning mercy rule. The Smashers were led by Ed Blankenship who was 3-3 including an OTF HR and Marty Harrison who was 3-3 with a triple.

 

Herbs’ Hammers (24) - Fall Ballers (20): Herbs' Hammers - 8inn. In a wild affair, the Hammers held on for a close call victory. We scored 7 in the 7th to take a 5 run lead, only to see the FBers tie it in their half. We managed 4 in the 8th and held on. Offensive leaders were: Rick Stager (4-4 2B 4R), Mark Gedert( 3-3 2B 2 BB), Ron Fox (4-5 3R), Jack Holloway (3-4), Guy Stager(2-3), Roy Woodworth(3-5), Jeff Aiello(3-3 4R 3B), and Chuck McMillen (2-4). Fall Ballers - The second game looked like it might go the Fall Ballers way until Herbs Hammers forged ahead in an extra inning. The highlight for this game was John Brubaker's over the fence home run.

 

Andy & Barney’s (19) - Autumn Smashers (16): A& B held off a 7th inning rally to win a close game 19-16. DEFENSIVE GEMS: Rob Ravin at third, Jon Labeau at SS and Dann Schlenbaker at middle infield, made play after play to lead the men in black to their fourth win. Neal Klopping led the pack, going 3/4: two doubles and a INTPHR. John Kuschell and Craig Mantey had three hits each.
Autumn Smasher's - Game #2 was a much more competitive game as the Smasher's had their best offensive output this Fall season. Unfortunately we came up a few runs short. The Smasher's were led by Marty Harrison who was 4-4 with 3 OTF HR's and a triple. Joe Beham (Joe also took a called third strike from crafty veteran pitcher Jerry Keefe on a curveball!!), Ed Blankenship and Terry Thomas all had 3 hits each and Mark Clair, Phil Carrolan, Mike Miller and Dan Leonard contributed with two hits each. The Smasher's will look to get their first win next week.

Fricker's #3 WINS Legends Tournament

September 25, 2014

LEGENDS TOURNAMENT SEMI-FINAL GAMES

ROOSTERS (16) - ALLSHRED SERVICES (12): Roosters Men’s Grooming Center - In the semi-final game the Roosters ball club held off a very competitive, but under-manned Allshred Services team. The Men of Roosters were able to slowly build-up a ten run lead going into the final inning, only to see Allshred rally for six runs in the seventh behind a determined hitting onslaught. The Monsters of Monroe Street were led by four hits a piece by Bob Collins and Jose Mondragon. Bob Collins also contributed an OTF HR, but due to the five run rule limit was only credited with a single. Jose “The Cycle” Mondragon finally hit for The Cycle after being close numerous times throughout the season which included an OTF HR. Contributing three hits apiece to the Roosters attack were Dave Williams, Hider Hilou, Larry Gagin and Jeff “Mr. Hoover” Szenderski, with Jeff also contributing key fielding plays at the “hot corner.”

 

FRICKER'S 3 (20) - FRICKER'S 2 (19): Fricker's #3 in the semi finals manufactured two runs in the bottom of the 7th inning to advance with a 20 to 19 score against Fricker's #2. Three nail biter games against the #2 hitting machine this year. With one out in the last of the 7th Ron Fox's smart running from 3rd base forced #2 to take the out at the plate and not attempt a difficult double play, then Tim Kuszmaul hit a gaper to score the tying and winning runs. Tim went (4-5, 3.3b's) Mark Clair (4-4), Fritz (3-3,OTF,HR,3b), Glen Smillie (3-4,OTF,HR ), Marty (3-3,4b,3b,2b), Ron, Grandville, Roy and Charlie each had two key hits.

 

Fricker's 2 - The season game to an end for Fricker's 20-19. Leading by one run going into the bottom of the 7th Fricker's 3 scored twice with two out to earn a berth in the championship. Rick Doran lea the way offensively for Fricker's 2 going 4-4 with two triples. John Brubaker went 3-4 with an OTF home run. Cary Weaver chipped in with 3 hits as well. It was a nice season for Fricker's 2 who lead their division much of the season and after a late season slump came back strong in the tournament.

 

LEGENDS TOURNAMENT CHAMPIONSHIP GAME

FRICKER'S 3 (21) - ROOSTERS (19): Fricker's #3 - In the finals Fricker's #3 had a 21 to 11 lead on the Best team in the league Rooster's going onto the bottom of the 7th and had hang on by the skin of there teeth as Rooster's came back with 8 runs for a 21 to 19 final score. It would not have been a surprise if they had scored 11 to win it, they have some great hitters and hit from top to the bottom of there line up. But Fricker's #3 has some hitters also and was led off by Tim Kuszmaul going (5-5,4R) Glen Smillie (4-4, 2,2b), Fritz (3-3,2b,BB), Mark Clair (4-5), Lenny Jones(2-4), Ron (2-4,2,2b) and Grandville (2-4) with a great catch in the late innings,Tom Parker (2-3) and had a lot of hustle on the base paths all night. Marty (3-3, OTF,HR,2,2b's,BB), Roy Woodworth and Charlie McMillin added a hit eachin the game and there veteran leadership all year. Thanks to the team for making it another fun year.
Roosters Men’s Grooming Center - Three did turn out to be a charm for Marty Harrison’s Frickers’ #3 ball club in the Legend’s League Tournament Championship game.

 

The Men of Roosters had beaten Frickers’ #3 twice before during the regular season, but finally succumbed to a wicked hitting attack. The much anticipated rematch looked fairly lopsided for most of the game with Frickers’ #3 holding a commanding 16-3 lead after five innings. The Monsters of Monroe Street finally found their bats, scoring four runs in the sixth and then mounting a furious rally in the seventh inning by scoring eight more runs. Unfortunately, the rally came up just short with the potential game tying run at bat when the final out was recorded. Thanks go out to Kevin Koepfer for bringing out his live Rooster to root us on at the game. Congratulations to Marty and his Frickers’ #3 teammates on a well-deserved championship! To my Men of Roosters, what an awesome bunch of teammates and thank you for making this season so memorable!
