an archive of pages for viewing various memories of and from the past
that have helped shape and molded our close knit group over the years.

Cleveland Senior Softball (GCSS)
to the St. Vincent's Spine and Orthopedic Institute team (team
#4), managed by Mike Bloch, for winning the 2014 GCSS Championship.
In the third and final championship game of the series, St. Vincent's
prevailed in a close 5-4 victory over a determined Winar connection
team. It was the kind of game where it was a pity there had to
be a winner and a loser. As usual, effort and sportsmanship ruled
the day. Best regards to the members of Team #4, who played with
confidence and poise. You are truly champions.
deepest appreciation goes out to all 2014 GCSS teams and players
for another successful season of senior softball and camaraderie.
At the end of the day, that is what senior ball is all about.
We look forward to seeing each of you back next year."

Cleveland Senior Softball (GCSS)
Hats are off to the Green Rick Roller Machine for winning the
GCSS league championship. They won the championship in two games
with great hitting, some super fielding plays, and wonderful
sportsmanship. The Yellow Team had the lead at times and kept
coming after the Green Team but just could not get those hits
when needed with men in scoring position. There was a nice turn
out of players from the two teams that did not make the playoffs.
Maybe we should play more games in September as the weather
Tuesday and today was fantastic.
A special thanks goes to our commissioner for handling what
seemed like an impossible schedule in the last few weeks. Joe
did an excellent job in keeping the teams competitive through
out the season.
The Leagues next meeting will be the first Thursday in November,
the 7th! It will start at 10 am at the Brook Park Recreation
On the agenda will be nomination of officers (2 year terms).
Think how you can help the league by becoming an officer and
not a complainer.
As I walked away after the games and saw Joe having to put the
pitching screen away I could not but think how few people know
how much work someone like Joe puts in that no one knows about.
They just show up and play. Do not be afraid to shake Joe's
hand and thank him for all of his efforts.
