SPA HOME RUN DERBY
some of the elite player of senior softball put on a show at the SPA National tourney hitting in the derby.
Jack Aronson of Gekle builder hit til his hands bleed and some more of the 50 young guns hit some in the 375- 400 range. In the 55's one of my old buddy for sportplex Tony Vodola Hit 7 out of 7 for that title Gary Denton came in second. But the Show of the event was another of my buds EINSTEIN
Joe came in second because of a hittoff and he had already pitched to over half of the hitter and cheered everone else on every Homerun hit.
But Pete Imlay {hope that spelling right} Bruce Fairchild came in third
We had some great fun in a very good tournament

Hey Don,
If more guys knew how much fun
that really was
with the proceeds going to charity
there'd be a line of guys waiting to participate.

You could also have a pitching contest
a la throwing balls into a garbage can
from 50', 55', 60' and second base
that would be attractive and simple
to execute, too.

Joe and Ken, about 4 or 5 years ago SPA held pitching, base hitting, double play and throwing accuracy contests in conjunction with thier national tournament. The proceeds went to to charity.
