The championship game has been played and our new league champions for 2016 is The Twins! Don't be fooled by the final score- both teams came out hitting, but great defense kept the score down. It was 1-1 after one, 2-2 after two, and 5-5 after three. The Twins poured it on in the 4th, but New Hope had the potential to come back. The Twins excellent defense the last 2 innings proved to be too much, and they richly deserved the trophy! Thanks to Joe Kuperburg, Glen Ziccarelli, and Mike Porter for their help in umping the game- great job guys!

Very sad news.. Kevin Colegrove of Good Shepherd lost his daughter this week after a long battle with a brain tumor. Every time I saw Kevin, he gave me updates on her and you could tell the love he had for her. Kevin has been a great ambassador for this league for many years both as a player and coach for Communities. Please send prayers to him and his family.

The league championship game was played last night- Tuesday August 4th, and it was a real barnburner. New Hope hung on to win, after the Twins staged a couple of late game rallies. Both teams fought thru a couple innings of rain, but otherwise it was a beautiful night for a game.
Thank you to Joe Kuperberg for helping me to set up the field.
Thank you to Doug Kohn, Crockett Button, Joe Kuperberg, and Glen Ziccarelli for umping.
A huge thank you to all of the great fans who came out to cheer on their teams.
Most of all, thank you to New Hope and The Twins for representing our league in the best possible way. Fellowship was the theme of the night as there were no conflict- just smiles and laughter. It was a credit to both churches and their players. Kudos to all!
Thanks to Spud for maintaining the website!
Thanks to Glen Ziccarelli, our league commissioner, for all his hours of work for the league and making my job easier.
Lastly, thank you to all of the church community that makes this league possible and has helped keep it going for over 40 years!

To those of you who missed, which is most of the league, you missed a truly epic All-Star event Tuesday night July 7th. True, it rained for about 2/3 of the event, but it did nothing to dampen the enthusiasm of the players and fans. If you ever wanted to see people playing for the love of the game, and the fellowship of the league, you should have been there. I was soaked to the skin within 10 minutes, but I did not hear one person complain about the rain or ask why we weren't cancelling. I believe everyone left with a smile on their face and a full stomach!
The All-Star team coached by Glen Zicarelli snuck out a 14-13, bottom of the 7th inning with the tying run on 3rd base, victory over the team coached by Don Ray of the Twins. Simply an awesome game with great hitting and defense. The MVP of the winning team was John Wheeler of Covenant Life, and the MVP of the other team was Austin Blood of Rush Methodist. Great job guys!
The 1st ever home run derby was epic as well. We started with 10 participants, and ended up with a sudden death swingoff between Aaron Reed of Elim and Jake Kocher of Avon East. Aaron was the winner with a home run shot after Jake's hard hit line drive fell short. Congrats to Aaron and also to Jake!
I need to thank Elim and Crockett Button for the use of the field and the grill, and getting the field ready. They were excellent hosts.
I want to thank Cindy and Dick Wallace of Rush for the cookie tray, and whoever brought the other tin of cookies.
Thanks to Helene Marlowe for doing most of the grilling and helping me make the mac salads.
Thanks to Zweigles for the deal on the hot dogs- tremendous as always
Thank to Joe Kuperberg of Good Shepherd and Crockett Button of Elim for umping.
Thanks to Glen Ziccarelli for all his help and input, and also for the post game prayer.
If I forgot anyone, let me know, but most of all I have to thank the fans that came out in the awful weather. We truly appreciate your support!!
And lastly, the players that make this all possible, and show the passion on which this league was founded, we all say thank you for representing your churches and yourselves well!
