To my pals,
Remember what I wrote last, I mentioned our Ranger Softball Invitational? Well, guess what? Ranger won all four trophies. WE won the Senior A & B, plus the Junior A & B.
In the Senior A game we first had to beat Roosevelt, a very worthy opponent. With the brilliant hitting of JEFF MARMELSTEIN, the brilliant pitching of GARY SIMON, and pretty fielding of HOWIE DAVIS, we out classed Roosevelt by a final score of 8-1. In the finals we played Camp Impala, who earlier defeated Lincoln Farms. Again Ranger showed its superiority. The outcome was decided in the first inning when we tallied for big runs. From then on the score just increased. The final score was 19-0. Again our hitting was led by alloy centerfielder JEFF MARMELSTEIN who went 3-3 with 5 RBI's, MIKE DINOWITZ who played like Steve Garvey, went 1-3 with 3 RBI's and clutch fielding. HOWIE DAVIS played shortstop as the Dean, Louis Apercelino would have been made many brilliant stops in the field to stop any threat by Impala. The pitching of GARY SIMON would match that of Tom Seaver as he allowed only one walk and one hit throughout the game. It was very hard to pick our MVP but for his clutch fielding and record breaking walks in one game, HOWIE DAVIS was picked. The game ball went to JEFF MARMELSTEIN for his fine performance at the plate.
In the Senior B game, we get had to face Roosevelt and eliminated them with ease. Those having a banner day, were pitcher DAVID LICKER and centerfielder STEVEN TESCH. In the finals against Impala, both of the players took charge and handily defeated their opposition. MVP went to DAVID LICKER for his clutch pitching and hitting and game ball went to STEVEN TESCH for his hitting of three booming home runs.
You should have seen us the next day. We were tough with both Junior A and Junior B.
In the Junior A, were we get met Roosevelt we were involved in a very close game which was not decided until the final play the game. You would have loved to watch what happened then. This mighty catcher we have, SCOTT GOTTDIENER, would remind you of your all time favorite catcher Yogi, the way he played. Well this is how the play went. Bottom of the seventh, Roosevelt was up, they
