WINTER 2013/14 TOURNAMENT WINNERS

GARY'S TEAM
BILL DeRENZO sent me this picture and asked me to post the note below:

Gentleman; 
Firstly, I would like to thank each and every one of you for giving me the honor of
spokesperson for the Winter Luncheon on Monday. It’s truly a blast and I thank you.
 As you may or may not know, My ‘oration’ is completely non-scripted. I prefer it that way
so that in the event something or someone happens to change the direction of the words,
the humor can be even more effective just by happenstance. Also, I didn’t want to take up
too much time speaking, as Kevin Donohue had an excellent presentation he had written
which he wanted to share with all of us. 
 That being stated, I overlooked some very important men in my opening thank you’s.
 1). Mike Lewis. Mike is our equipment field manager and has done an OUTSTANDING job
    of making sure the equipment is cared for each and every game. 
To a man, we appreciate your efforts.
 2.) Larry (the Colonel) Calloway. You may or may not know this, but Larry is at the field before
     each game, calls in the condition of the fields and lets us know way ahead of game time
     if the game is called, or can be played. He has unselfishly done this for as long as I can remember.      I thank him for his effort as I know all of you do as well.
 Mike, Larry from us to you, many thanks again for a job well done.  
My sincerest apology for not stating this on Monday.
 Bill DeRenzo

SUMMER 2012 POST SEASON TOURNAMENT
PRESENTATION OF CHAMPIONSHIP TROPHY
 

Tuesday, October 16, 2012


ROYAL PALM BEACH LEAGUE DEFEATS
CUSHING LEAGUE IN THE FIRST

SOUTH FLORIDA SENIOR  SOFTBALL
WORLD SERIES

Monday, October 15, 2012

On Saturday, 10/13/12 players from the "65th" and players from the "CSSL" & "RPBSSL", as well as players from the Pompano Beach South Florida Senior Softball Group took it upon themselves to hold an impromptu Charity Senior Softball Exhibition Game to benefit the
"Breast Cancer Awareness Program"..............

The fact that all of these players would take it upon themselves to raise funds for such a worthy cause is remarkable and it demonstrates that there is a lot more in so many of our fellow players than just the fact that they want to win a softball game. This exhibition game was played with some outstanding home run hitting and great defensive plays made by both teams.... I was very impressed when I saw each team cheer each other when a great defensive play was made and the atmosphere was that of very friendly and respectful sportsmanship... At the conclusion of a 37-32 score, these players shook hands, while others gathered their equipment and headed towards the parking lot of the Seminole Palms Park Ballfield.
AS they were walking away I sat in my car and just thought to myself and recalled a short passage from the book of Proverbs which reads: "In all ways acknowledge him and he shall direct thy paths"....... On this sunny October, Saturday morning and afternoon the Lord did in fact "direct the paths" of all of these players to acknowledge that they too can make a difference in the lives of others and in this case the lives of some breast cancer patients.... I speak for MYSELF and others whose wives are currently under going treatment for Breast Cancer and I THANK all of these players for their time, their talent, their willingness to help others that they will never meet........ I often say to many of these players as I talk with them at the various ballparks in South Florida that "Today is the day that the Lord has made, let us rejoice and be glad in it"...... I was very glad that I was able to at least Umpire this Charity Exhibition game and we Thank yet another very generous man in Max Broitman for suggesting this idea and then to follow through and make it happen....

SINCE THESE ARE THE THREE LEAGUES
FOR WHOM I DO WEB SITES I FELT THAT
IT WOULD BE APPROPRIATE TO POST THE
PICTURES BELOW AND CONGRATULATE
DON MARGOLIN
OUR TRIPLE CROWN CHAMPION
WAY TO GO DON,
WAYNE LOTOZA


Poem to Don Margolin written by Monte Wolfert.
Hail to Donny, not Ceasar, as coach of the year.
Facing elimination in the playoffs gave you no fear.
To win in three leagues puts you way up above.
Now all players want to share some of your love.
Tell them you'll choose them if they agree
to play by the rules to be the best they can be.
Superstar or hacker doesn't seem to matter to you.
Play as a team and you'll win quite a few.
So enjoy this great moment you truly deserve,
because next year will be the time of Valencia Reserve.
YOU DESERVE TO GLOAT, DON.
