Manteca NCSSA Tournament
NCSSA Championship Manteca, Ca.
Fantastic weather.
6 Big League Parks.
I hadn't gotten this excited to play softball
in years.

Winners I saw before leaving were:
Who Cares
Bad Seed
Congratulations all you guys and all the rest.

Officials did a great job.
John Reedy and all the umpires,
Fritz, Jimmy and rest way to go.

We finished 4th after a 4 way tie for first place
in the upper division was settled by a slide rule
to discover who had let in the least runs.
Great time, great teams, great friends and satisfying softball.

We used Baden Fire balls and lively bats.
No one got really hurt beyond normal bumps and bruises
expected when going all out to win a championship.
But one game was lethal and gaudy as can be.
With 'exploding bats and balls' we played
the East Bay Oldies a major plus national champion in a game
where only 5 total runs were scored in 7 innings.

5 run innings served to keep teams from running away with any game
and a good to great time was had for all.

We got the best players and the best senior association
in the country and we love to play with lively bats and balls.
