Frickers' #6 wins Legends
League Tournament 19-13

FRICKER’S 6 (19), FRICKER’S 4 (13): FRICKER’S 6 had a score to settle after losing 3 times to a very good Frickers 4. Frickers #6 led by Rick Schmidt going 4/4 2 doubles and 2 singles. Having 3 hits apiece were Perry Chillus, Jeff Gorney, Brian Chacka, Mark Murphy and Wade Timming. Rick Schmidt also had an unassisted double play at second base stopping a rally by Frickers#4. Brian Chacka also had his first OTFHR. Great job by all of Frickers 6 players. What great group of guys. FRINCKER’S 4 - The fourth time was a charm for #6 as they totally outplayed us and came away with a much deserved Tourney Championship. Offensive leaders: Dave Obert (4-4 2B 3B 3R 3RBI), Marty Harrison (3-3 HR 2B 3RBI), Mark Gedert (3-4 RBI), Larry Gagin (2-3 2B), Brett Crosby (1-2 RBI), Kevin Cagle(1-3 2RBI), and Rich Brownfield who was 10-10 for the Tourney (3-3 2B 2RBI). I would like to say it was an honor playing with such a great group of guys this year. You guys were an absolute pleasure to have as teammates. We may have come up a little short in this contest, but we had a fantastic season and there were many nights that we were without peer. Thank you all.
