Hall of Fame Inductees
Patti Mac and Ken Lipinski were inducted into the Softball Hall of Fame this past weekend in Dalton.

I have had the privilege of playing against Patti since the early 90's. Fierce competitor and you had to bring your "A" game to match his intensity and accomplishments, that is if you could. Very deserving.

I am honored to have had the opportunity to play ball for Ken and more importantly to call him my friend. No less than 10 former Mavericks were on the stage with him when he received his award. He is a class act and even finer human being. I cannot be more proud for him.

Congrats to all the above-named players.
Let me also add that Randy Fithian of Old A's fame was inducted in Dalton. He has played with the Texas Makules since he retired and moved to Arkansas.
Also, Tom Tudor of Turn 2 and Jess Martinez of Omen will be inducted later this year.

Congratulations Ken Lipinski & Patti Mac, on your inductions into the HOF.
Mike, I really had no idea that Kenny was being inducted into the HOF. 10 Ex Mavericks just happen to be playing in Dalton at the time that he is inducted. To be there was PRICELESS, simply PRICELESS
Man, to get on stage behind one of the Best Manager/Sponsor in Senior Softball, was a truly ahhh sum experience. Itís Manager/Sponsor like Kenny, who has made my senior softball experience some of the Best times of my Life. Congratulations again Ken Lipinski well deserved.

Hey Ray Wimbough, it was a pleasure to see you there in, Dalton Ga. and Congratulations again on your induction,

Enjoyed the HOF inductions in Dalton conducted by Ridge Hooks very impressive!! Ridge does a great job hosting the program and you can tell he loves doing it. Really appreciate all he does and his staff for the HOF. If you get a chance to watch an HOF induction it will be something you wonít forget.
It helps when you're newest members are first class people like Patti Mac and Ken Lipinski.
Ken is one of the pillars in this sport and I was very happy to see him get his recognition - way over due. It was very impressive to see all of the Mavericks on stage with him. I never had the opportunity to play for Ken but we sure have been involved in many great games with his Maverick team with the old Las Vegas Stars.

Patty Mac is one of the best players in Senior Softball and a great competitor. He is always been the guy you hated to see on the other team and loved to have him on your team. Inducted on his first round of eligibility is very impressive as well.

Ray Wimbough it was especially sweet to see you get the recognition you deserve as well and good luck with your induction in Manasses
Congratulations to Tom Tutor and Jessie Martinez great players and people!!
