    Cape Cod Mariners Place 2nd in Pompano

     

    A group of players from the CCSSL 60’s Travel Team finished in second place at the 2017 East Coast Senior Softball Tournament in Pompano, Florida March 6-10.  Twelve members of the Mariners joined forces with three players from Mike’s Blue Collar of Connecticut to complete a very successful week in Pompano.  The competition was tough with three games decided by one run and a fourth game decided by 2 runs.  The team fought hard “together” throughout the entire tournament.

    The Mariners ended the tournament with a 7-3 win / loss record tied with “EH” from Canada and finishing behind the champion Hanningtons team which consisted of players from Massachusetts and Florida.  Hanningtons finished the week with an 8-2 record.

    The Cape Codders played well against the top teams in the tournament.  They split a doubleheader with eventual champion Hanningtons.  After losing game one 20-4 the Mariners turned the tables with a 20-5 win. They also split two games with the Canadiens winning the first game 17-16 and losing the second 23-22 in extra innings. The only other disappointment was a 14-13 loss to fourth place finisher Dorsey Insurance of Maryland.

    Nine Mariners batted over .600 for the tournament with two of those over .700. Those nine include: Rich Bettley .788, Bob Marcella .724, Larry Kanupp .697, Bob Maruca .697, Tony D’Allessandro .688, Gary Arne .684, Dave Pina .657, Kenny Rogers .617 and Mike Walsh .609.

    The defense was led by outfielders Gary Arne and Rich Bettley both of whom stole numerous hits away with their speed and glove work. Tony D’ Allessandro anchored the infield with slick fielding on some tough sun-baked infields resulting in a number of double plays.

    Ron Scarborough, Bob Marcella and Tom Kapitan all pitched well in spite of blustery winds. 

    The team would like to express their gratitude to Kaleidoscope Imprints for their generous support.  The team hopes to play next in May in Loudoun, Va.

    Classic Results


    Classic Upgrade - Thank You to McNamara Brothers

    In order to spruce up the fields in Harwich, McNamara Brothers donated and spread 17 yards of mulch around the sheds and picnic area at the Harwich fields. Many thanks to McNamara Brothers for their generosity!


    Looking for Umpires

    Joe Cassidy Memorial

    As you enter the path that leads to Memorial Field, be sure to take a look to your left and see the new memorial to Joe Cassidy, the founder of our league! Joe is the player who made this possible for all of us by starting Senior Softball here on Cape Cod back in 1987.


    BULLETIN TO ALL PITCHERS!!
     
    The practice pitching frame is back!  It stands majestically* outside the Memorial Field centerfield fence, clearly defining the 6-foot and 12-foot "flat" and "illegal" pitch limits.  The pitching rubber (wood, actually) and home plate bang board are a regulation 50 feet apart.  We suggest that you pitch with two partners so that you can work together - one pitching, one eyeballing the height of each pitch, one calling strikes and balls at home plate.  In this manner the pitcher can focus on throwing strikes, while getting feedback on height and accuracy.
     
    This is your chance to learn how to work the top and bottom of the pitching zone and drive batters crazy!
     
    If you need any assistance, call or email Bob Warde (508-237-3874, rcwarde@comcast.net) and he'd be more than happy to help you out.  The gates are open during the week until approximately 6:00 p.m. before league games begin, after which they're open until 8:00 p.m.  Bring your own bucket of balls or find out where the not-so-secret extra key to the shed is located.
     
    UMPIRES:  Watch a pitcher practice and see just what a 12-foot pitch looks like and how difficult it is to throw a flat-pitch strike.  You might be surprised!
