MASTERS LEAGUE SEMIFINAL TOURNAMENT

HARVARD BARBER SHOP (18) - ANDY & BARNEY'S (15): Harvard Barber Shop took on Andy&Barney's for the 4th time this year and finally came away with an 18-15 victory on the strength of 30 hits. The big blow again came from Dave Ashman who hit a 3 run OTF HR in the second of 2 straight 5 run innings to finally put this one away. Nickelsen & Anderson both 4/4, Martinez & Smith both 4/5. On to the finals.
ANDY & BARNEY'S defense lapses led to a crushing defeat, losing the end-of-season Masters' Semifinal Tournament to a very good Harvard team, 18-15. Adding to the problem, A&B failed to score in three innings. The team rallied for three in the sixth and two more in the 7th, but went down swinging with the tying run at bat. Accolades to the A&B squad for winning the West Division with a 13-3 record. Bill Garber was 4/4. SS Jon Labeau legged out three doubles, in a 3/4 night. In the 6th, Roy Woodworth hit a long drive to r/c for a triple and 2RBI's.

 

Joel Hansen STATE FARM (19) - THE RETIREMENT GUYS (17): Joel Hansen State Farm – The Farm won this tight playoff game outlasting the Retirement Guys who came on strong at the end of the season. Leading the offense for State Farm was the top of the lineup: Bob Collins, Al Seeger and John Brubaker were all 5/5, Dale Knepper playing his last games before knee replacement surgery was 3/4, Bob Briggs, Joel Hansen and Tim Sutter each contributed 2 hits. This was a good example of why we play the season end tournament, our two teams were not in the hunt for the league championship but were able to have some accomplishment by sticking around in the tourney.

 

MASTERS LEAGUE FINAL TOURNAMENT GAME

HARVARD BARBER SHOP (18) - Joel Hansen STATE FARM (5): Harvard Barber Shop - In the finals, the barbers put away a shorthanded but tough State Farm team 18-5 in 6 innings. With the score tied at 3 apiece after 2 innings, we again put up back to back 5 run innings to put this one put of reach early. Anderson, Meyer, Ashman all 3/4, Smith, Wisinewski both 3/3. Everyone had at least 1 hit in our 25 hit attack. Great way to end the season. Thanks all you guys for a very enjoyable and rewarding season. See all of you next year.
Joel Hansen STATE FARM - Well the Tourney shine wore off and the Farm ran up against a solid Harvard squad in the Tournament Championship game. Gary Meyer slowed our offense to a crawl with a fine pitching performance and his offense did the rest. The Farm’s hitting leaders were Bob Collins 3/4, John Brubaker, Dale Knepper and Bob Briggs were all 2/3. Congrats to the Barbers and also to the Farm who played short handed a good portion of the season, chipped away and made it to this championship game.

Aug. 14 Highlights

FRICKER'S 12 (12) - Jeff Traudt STATE FARM (11): FRICKER'S #12 held off a late-inning rally by Traudt's team, to squeak out a 12-11 win. The two week layoff was evident, as both teams committed numerous errors. Fricker's scored 12 runs on twelve hits with only one extra-base hit - a triple by Joe "Flash" Behan, the fastest man in the league! Dave Obert made the "catch" of the game-with a running, shoe-string grab. Fricker's #12 is now 7-6 in league play. Dave and Rick Obert had two hits each.
Jeff Traudt State Farm - The Farm Boys were involved in a poorly played game. Unfortunenately errors and miscues were in favor of State Farm. While State Farm out hit Frickers #12 15 to 12 the poor plays made the outcome the difference. A good game was delivered by Keith Dominiack 3-4-2R-2-2B and Mark Goodremont, Jon LeBeau, and Jim Watters had 2 hits each. This was the 6th time State Farm has dropped a 1 Run game this season. We look forward to a turn-a-round in the tournament.

ROOSTERS (20) - FRICKER'S 10 (8): Roosters Men’s Grooming Center - In a battle of the top two teams in the West Division, the Men of Roosters did some late- inning crowing and pulled away with the win. The score was 11-8 after four complete innings when the Roosters offense kicked in to score five runs in the fifth inning and four more runs in the sixth, all while holding the Fricker’s #10 team scoreless. The initial blow in the key fifth inning was a solo inside the park HR by RF Hider “Hotter the Hades” Hilou (four hits) with the rally capped by 2B Jose “The Cycle” Mondragon’s (three hits) opposite-field, OTF ground-rule single. Also, contributing on the offensive side were Javier “Amazing” Almanza with four hits, Kevin Koepfer, Larry Gagin and Mike Hamann all added three hits each. The Roosters defense was very sharp again, completing a couple of double plays and the very good pitching of Mike “Hurry Up” Hamann kept a good-hitting Fricker’s #10 team off-balance most of the game.
Fricker's #10 could not put together many hits when needed. Fricker's led by Rick Hendee, 2/3 and an OTFHR, 2 hits by Randy Bores, Matt Giles and Rick Stager. Congrats to the Barbers with their mastery of the teams in their league and the division championship!!!


ST. CLARE COMMONS (21) - FRICKER'S 2 (20): St. Clare Commons and Fricker's 2 battled in what had to be one of the best games played all year. Both teams hit the ball hard. Both teams played great defense. The lead kept changing back and forth with neither team willing to quit. F-2 took a three run lead in the top of the 7th. St. Clare came back with 4 in the bottom of the 7th. St. Clare highlights were John Johnson hitting 3 home runs over the fence with the last one tying the game in the bottom of the 7th. Neal Klopping also played great as a pool player for us greatly helping our chances to win. Great game by everyone involved on both teams.
Frickers #2 had a chance to extend their division lead to two games against their closest rival St. Clare Commons, but ended up falling just short 21-20. Fricker's scored six times in the top of the 7th to take a 3 run lead but St. Clare came back with 4 to earn the win. John Brubaker and Jeff Wagenhauser each had 4 hits. Mike Sanders had 3 hits including 2 OTF home runs and Rick Doran also had 3 hits with an OTF home run and a triple.

SCHNEIDER SONS' ELEC (16) - FRICKER'S 3 (4): What a night for the Schneider Sons' Electric crew. It was a good night for our bats to come alive as we head into the end of the season. Everyone played solid defense with no errors in the game. We had 5 yes 5 over the fence homeruns 2 from Patrick Henry, 2 from Norm Cairl (a third shot hit the fence just short of a homerun), 1 From Monty Coffman. Matt Geisel had a line drive that hit the fence on a fly for a stand up double. There was also the steady singles hits from the rest of the team that always brings the crowd to their feet cheering. Some great defensive plays by Jon Plouf at 3rd and 3 shots back to pitchers mound left the shorthanded Fricker's 3 team wondering what else they could do. The team is now complete again with Dave Ronau making his comeback
after a potentially season ending injury earlier this year.
Fricker's 3 ran into a hot hitting Electric team and could not hit with them losing 17 to 3 in five iinnings. Glenn Smillie and Ron Fox went 2 for 2.
