The Over the Hill Gang softball league opened its 38th season on April 19 at Allen Park. The league thanks Town Supervisor John Venditto, Legislator Michael Venditto and Councilman Joe Pinto for helping with the opening day festivities.
Lockie & Nowachek Family Chiropractors and BK Sweeney’s faced each other in the middle game on the 90-foot field. Sweeneys, who lost only one game during the regular season last year, jumped off to an 8-0 lead in the top if the first inning. They looked to be in control, but L&N showed a lot of character and came back to win a tough battle 18-17.
Special L&N kudos to Rich Apollo who belted 2 HRs, drove in seven runs and played fantastic defense at shortstop. Ronny Schwabe also had a HR and pitched a great game. Damon Pishva was 3-for-4. Tom DeSantis was 2-for-3 and “rookie” Eddie Bernauer Jr. went 3-for-4 and played tough defense.
