Dan Menendez of O-Side Painting touches home plate just before the throw to catcher Donna Engleman of TERI reaches her during a game at Pine Park on November 24th. Umpire Marty Fenlon is about to make the call.
SCORES-THURSDAY NOVEMBER 24TH
TERI 16 O-SIDE PAINTING 5
Thanks to Evelyn Schwartz for helping out a short handed O-Side Painting team. Lou Alliano had a 4 for 4 day as one of the few bright spots for OP.
THAT PIZZA PLACE 17 GOT PAIN 13
For the first time in many weeks TPP had all 15 of their players in attendance with 14 participating. The result was positive play on offense and defense. PETE ZAVALA and LOU CHARTZ paved the way offensively each going 4 for 4. Defensively, DAVE TANSEY made some fine plays at 2nd, DAVID BOSQUE made an over the shoulder catch then threw to second to double up the runner. LOU CHARTZ saved a couple of runs racing to the right field foul area to catch a long ball off the bat of MARLON MOORE.
SCORES-THURSDAY NOVEMBER 24TH
LIFELINE 28 CARLSBAD INN 13
It was a beautiful day for playing softball. Lifeline's lineup hit well throughout the game. Mari Gallucci was 5 for 5 and Tom Zack was 4 for 4. John Cellini and Wally Wallace hit grand slam homeruns. Thanks to Steve Sexton for playing short stop for Carlsbad Inn.
THE DRAFT 23 PIZZA PORT 18
This is a warning: do NOT trust PPB to roll over and let you win. In a nice and tidy game up until the 5th inning, The Draft was in the lead, then ok, PPB scored 5 runs and took the lead by 1. It was tied up going into the 9th inning where The Draft scored 9 big ones, including a HR by Larry Sontag. But wait! DR was punished before in a scenario like this: Pizza Port scored 12 runs to beat DR a while back and The Draft did NOT forget. That rascal John Vivrett (never trust that guy!) goes and hits a grand slam! scoring 4 runs and making The Draft nervous once again! Other HR's included Dave Grull and Dave Ash. Anyway, this story turns out ok. PPB did NOT score 12 runs and The Draft came out the winner (whew).
The 2015 Summer/Fall season began on Tuesday June 23rd, featuring 6 teams playing 3 games at Lake Park in Oceanside, including Got Pain?, O-Side Painting, Nucci's, Pizza Port, Carlsbad Inn, and Lifeline, who were the Winter/Spring winners of the Jack Brown Tournament.
NOVEMBER TEAM OF THE MONTH
Seniors in North County (San Diego) have a great way to loosen up their bones and meet a great bunch of people. Join us in playing softball!
So who is a "Senior"? We say that men and women as young as 55 qualify. That's it, every one is welcome!
The North County Senior Softball League is recreational, so all skill levels are welcome!
Don't worry that you haven't played in decades-most of us hadn't either, and safety is our first concern. After all, we want to continue for a long time. We have several players in their 80's, still going strong!
We play league games on Tuesday & Thursday mornings on fields in Carlsbad, Oceanside, and Vista.
BE SURE TO JOIN US FOR PICKUP GAMES AT ALGA NORTE PARK IN CARLSBAD ON MONDAY MORNINGS STARTING AT 9 AM FOR EVALUATION AND TEAM ASSIGNMENT INFORMATION.
