  • Sports: Over the Hill Softball Report

    The OTH tournament semi-finals were played Thursday, Sept. 30 with the resurgent Moby team upsetting yet another team, this time it was O'Sheas that fell victim to the Moby Men. Unfortunately no highlights were provided other than O'Sheas Robby Kirk's homerun that gave his team a brief hope for a comeback that never materialized. The other semi-final pitted Barco against Singletons, the league's two top-seeded teams who have a habit of duking it out, and this one was no exception. In another low scoring, well played contest, Singletons offense turned out to be a bit more efficient as they edged Barco 8-5. Both pitchers were outstanding, Gary Jambor for Barco (thanks Rich), and Frank (Grandpa) Gordon for Singletons. After three innings, the score stood tied at 1-1 before Singletons erupted for four in the fourth, and another three in the seventh for an 8-2 lead. Barco did stage a comeback, but it was too little, too late, as they posted three in the eighth to make it 8-5. Leading the way for the Barco Boys were Terry McPartland and Bill Stack, who were 2-3, and Kevin Moloney and Steve Schwind, 2-3 and two RBIs each. A special thanks goes out to Dave Diamond, who, even though he's going away to college, still finds time to come back to do the book (outstanding as usual) and to be the team inspirer (and his Dad's hitting coach). Also to the Barco Better Halves (Tina Diamond, Denise Falcone, Anne Jambor, Debbie White), who come each and every week in all types of weather to cheer and support us, thanks big bunches ladies.
