CAUTION TO ALL PLAYERS!
During a game at Alga Norte on February 6, 2018 a player was almost hit in the head by a hard throw from right field as he ran from first to second base. He used the run-through line on the right side of second base instead of the left side. All players are cautioned to be aware of where throws may come from as they run to second or third base, and choose a run through line that will not put you in between the base and the throw.

THE DRAFT 23 GASPAR 10
Hugh O'Neill cruised into spring with a strongly pitched game against Gaspar, not allowing any walks, while helping his cause by going 3 for 4 with a home run. He was backed by some strong defense, especially from Roney Lewis and Tony Sando, who were all over the place making catches. At the plate for DR: Bruce Meyer 3/3 HR SF, Leigh Peterson and John Wakeman 4/4, and Karen Smith and Gordon Cress 3/3. Wally Wallace had a 4 for 4 day for Gaspar. It was a beautiful spring day for softball at Alga Norte.
CULTURA 16 CARLSBAD INN 8
Cultura started the game with 6 hits in the first inning to take a 5-2 lead. The Bob Porter fan club, lead by daughter Riley Porter and her college crew, had the cheering section doing the wave and making some noise. Nervous...Porter squibbed one off an infielder’s mitt and was met with the dreaded OOOVER---RRRATED chant.
But Cultura scored 7 more runs led by Paul Muzalski who went 4 for 4, to take a 12-5 lead. CBI's balanced hitting attack kept chipping away, lining hits around the field. They closed the gap to 12-8 in the 7th and it could have been tighter if not for some fine fielding from SS Jim Plotkin and Rover Al Cabacungan keeping the innings in check. In the bottom of the 8th Cultura opened it up with a 3 run homer by Kevin McBarron. Up came Porter again with the crowd on its feet and going crazy. He ripped his 4th straight hit, an RBI single, for the final run and trotted off the field to a chant of MVP MVP MVP from his deliriously happy fans.

THE PIE SHOPPE 19 I-5 BAIL BONDS 18
I-5 Bail Bonds was missing four players today, so The Village Kitchen and Pie Shoppe loaned a catcher to play twelve-on-twelve in a seven inning game. Offense was rampant today as seven home runs were hit on Alga Norte 3. HRs for BB were Charles O'Brien (4/5), Mike Seidel (second one in two games), and Kevin Armentano, who also had two great catches and three glorious throws from left field. VPS provided their own fireworks from pitcher Pete Zavala (3/3), HR-Lou Chartz (third one in two games), and two HRs by Ernie Martinez. VPS had the lead after two innings, 10-2, but BB narrowed that gap. With a great come back in the last inning, the home team BB, scored six runs, but was short by one for a 19-18 final.
NUCCI'S 19 O'IRELAND 10
Nucci's came out swinging and scored five runs in the first inning, holding O'Ireland to 1 run. In the 3rd inning O"Ireland held Nucci's scoreless and then O'Ireland had two men on base when "Over the Fence" slugger Mike Maltinsky came to the plate with a nice home run over LC field fence. Both teams had some nice defensive plays and scored some runs here and there. In the top of the 6th, Nucci's scored five more runs, two runs in the 7th and 3 in the 8th with total runs at 19. O'reland trying to catch up scoring two runs in the 7th and two more in the 9th could not catch up with Nucci's. Good pitching by Russ Roopenain of Nucci's. Dave Ash, Oscar Castillo were 4/4. O'Ireland had good pitching by Jimmie Martin. Dave Erwine had a nice home run and Jim Biksacky was 3 for 3.
