Team 70 Huntsman Games 2018
Day one Report by Sherwin:
H&P 70's first game was against Ancient Rainiers from Washington state.
This was the team that took the gold from us in 2017.
We played well but a Rainiers pitching change in the 4th inning shut us down and we lost
Highlight from the game was Gord Deibert going 4-4 at the plate and Ernie Ambrosi going
In our second game we faced Triple Play from Fresno, Calif.
We kept it close until the top of the 7th when the flood gate opened and Triple Play scored 10
runs. H&P lost 29-20.
Jim Noon went 3-3 at the plate.
Sherwin Lehman was a double short of the cycle with a single, triple and a Grand Slam i
n-the-park home run.
Report for Day 2 by Sherwin.
H&P faced the Salty Dogs from Salt Lake City.
We had a good start with 5 runs in the first but a few defensive errors allowed the Dogs to tie
it up in the 2nd.
Our offence and defence then went to work and H&P came away with a 24-15 victory.
In-the-park homers today came from Emerson Davies, Howard Gehring and Terry Tucker with 2.
In yesterday's report I failed to acknowledge an in-the-park homer by Gord Deibert in the first
hit of the first inning of the first game.
Batting a .1000 today were Lutz Perschon, Howard Gehring, Terry Tucker and Larry Lutz.
That completes pool play with a 1-2 record.
Day 3 Report by Sherwin:
H&P 70's were seeded to the A Black bracket.
Our first opponent was Simon's Seniors from Wisconsin who defeated us 16-9.
Of notable effort today were Gord Deibert and Larry Lutz with in-the-park homers and
Emerson Davies with 2 triples. Tomorrow's game is must win or go home. Stay tuned.
Day 4 Report from Sherwin:
This is the final report for H&P 70's as we are now out of the games.
Our opponents today were the Bandits from Toronto-Mississauga.
They scored at will and we were down 19-5 after 4 but there was no quit in the Huffers.
We scored 5 in the top of the 5th, 6th and 7th to lead 20-19 but the Bandits managed 2 runs in
the bottom to win 21-20.
Special thanks to Kandi Davies our scorekeeper, our wives who cheered us on, and the H&P
55's for their support.
Also thanks to our guys who gave it their best and Jim Black for his coaching.
