A little put together Round Robin
Tourney in Escondido was cancelled so Nighthawks put together a little round robin. Mavericks/Sommerville Softball (SSUSA 50 Major + Champions, SSUSA OLR Nights 55 Major + Champions, SSUSA Doupleplay 55 55 Major Champions) Now that is what I call a little get together. Serious bombs and lasers all day long. Bad day to be a pitcher. Bully easily hit the most impressive shots, but Bill Gombos and Wayne Wilcox were not to far behind. Even with a limited roster for today's get together, Sommerville Softball is going to be a MAJOR force in every tournament they enter.

The rattlesnakes in Reno ought to be getting some Hard Hats because there will be plenty of balls hitting the rocks. Good Luck Nighthawks and Sommerville Softball.

It was indeed a good day of softball for everyone involved. None of it was possible, however, without the gracious assistance of Dan Haveron of the Top Gun organization. Besides arranging for the fields, he did an excellent job umpiring. We were fortunate to get a local tune-up for Reno.

The Nighthawks and Sommerville Softball are also very fortunate to have a committed, generous sponsor in David Sommerville. Everyone on this board knows how difficult it is to find someone who loves our game enough to contribute financially to an old farts hobby with little tangible return from their investment. Summy not only understands and loves the game,but a few short years ago hit .800 with 10 HR's at the SSUSA 50 Major World in Mobile. Thanks again Summy!!

Double Play 55's is a very tough opponent with a bunch of talented, classy players. Sorry they won't be in Reno, but their current challenge points out how difficult it is to get enough players committed to big events at the M+ level. I know Paul/Anna and the DP gang will be a force at events later in the year. And I'll say it for him, more than one of the bombs and lasers yesterday was hit by the newest DP'er, Softball 4B. Mike, you passed the audition!!

Finally, I encourage all the powers that be in Southern California Senior Softball to work together like last year to continue the goal of providing choices to play locally that don't conflict with each other. There is room and need for what all of you offer, but not on the same weekend. JMHO
