    For the second consecutive year since moving softball operations from
Dearborn Rotunda to the Sterling Hgts. Park & Rec League the Gds.com
team captured the spring/summer league playoff championship in a
doubleheader win on M, 8/24/15.
    Our heroes posted a 17-5 mercy victory vs the Ball Bashers in the semi-final,
then squeaked past Limelight 19-18 in the title contest.  


SEMI-FINALS:

    The winless Ball Bashers upset first place Game Time 11-1 in the AUG 17TH
quarter-finals. That made the 4th place Gds.com squad the home team for
the semis.
    Our boys sent 12 men to the plate in the B-1st to take a 6-0 lead. The
visitors got as close as 6-4 by the Mid-2nd-INN, then the good guys boosted
the margin to 14-4 when 15 batters came up in an 8-run B-3rd. Brandon
Chappell's fielder's choice grounder drove home Bob Blair with the B-5th
mercy-kill tally and a 17-5 decision.
    Mike Newcomb was 3-for-4 with a pair of runs. Tom Lockard went 2-for-3
plus a walk with a double, 2-R & 4-RBI.

FINALS:

    Ten fielding errors leading to eight unearned runs and a pair of
bonehead base-running mistakes that ended offensive innings hardly
is a prescription for success, but somehow our lads overcame the dozen
mistakes to edge 3rd-seeded Limelight 19-18 in a nail-biting championship
final.
    A 7-R/B-5th by the enemy came on 4-H, 1-W & 4-E and put Limelight
ahead 16-13. It was 18-14 when the Gds.com team posted a comeback
5-R/T-7th. Pinch-runner Nick Evanoff scored the go-ahead run on a 2-run
double by Mike Newcomb. The quiet B-7th saw the Gds.com defense turn
a 4-6-3 game-ending double play.
    Bob Blair went 4-for-5 with 2-R & 2-RBI. Newcomb was 3-for-4 with a pair
of doubles, 1-R & 5-RBI, but is also believed to have set a team record with
a half dozen errors at SStop. Jim Duda went 3-for-4  plus a walk with 4-R
& 3-RBI. Brandon Chappell was 3-for-4 with 2-R & 3-RBI. Lead-off man Jeff
Sakata was perfect at the plate by going 3-for-3 with two walks, 3-R & 2-RBI.
