The Allshred Services/Pacesetter Management 50-plus softball club traveled to the warm sunshine state on March 29 to compete in the International Senior Softball Assoc. Classic. AA, AAA and Major  senior ballclub's met from nine states. The Shred Squad was placed in the 50+ AA play and came away with a runner-up plaque. It all boiled down to a two out of three battle with the Strike Zone 50 team out of N.Carolina. Strike Zone won the first game, Allshred the second game. In the third game the teams played into the 8th inning with Allshred losing 20 to 17.Leading hitters for Allshred: Ric Hendy-.699, and John  Buehler-.599.
The Shred Squad played good  "D" and hit well. Defensively, the team was led by Keith Dicken at SS and Darren Axon at 2b. They played stellar defense and turned some spectacular double-plays. 3B Mike Hoy, a former SSS member who now lives in Tennessee, joined the gang. Jimmy Renfroe, helped out pitching and playing 1B. He was on loan from the Lou's Royals out of North Carolina. These fine players filled in at the last moment for regular Allshred members who were unable to travel. The SSS team played well and were very competitive. The boys held their own. Outfielders Gary Beale, Phil Richard, Ric Hendy, John Buehler and Mark Grimes played solid defense. Gary Beale led the team with two homeruns hit over a 320' fence. Rob Boehme played 3b and 1b, and contributed with the long ball with several off the fence. Gabe Barrow caught and chipped in with several extra base hits. Jay Schramm pitched, hit and banged several off the 320' fence.
A great time was had by all as we enjoyed the ocean view from our hotel rooms, partied, went sight seeing and hung out together. Nothing beats sitting on the beach watching the sun set, sipping a cold one and watching the sun set. A great time with a very special group of friends. We're already talking  about next years' tournament. Thanks guys for your contribution.

Ohio Buckeye Classics defeated Allshred handily in the second game but had a battle on their hands in the third game. This game went into eight innings with the Buckeye Classics finally pushing across a run. Final score of 20 to 19.
Final game saw Allshred put together a makeshift lineup with Jay Schramm pitching and Jim Johnson moving to shortstop. Martin Harrison moved to left field and played stellar defense and Norm Cairl hit a grand slam. Jase Sueede suffered an abrasion to his right arm catching a foul popup down third baseline. Allshred went up by one run in the 7th inning but three straight hits by Dayton Legends and a close play at the plate went Dayton's way.
Final score of 17 to 16.
