As the Page 13 Violators took the field and shook off the jitters, they picked up where they left off last season with the drive to win. The season started against Team Harvest, a team formed by a local Citrus Heights church, full of positive energy. The Violators were first to bat and quickly got on the scoreboard to show that the new wood bats didn’t faze them. Once we took the field, we also took over and held off the churches advances of scoring, with the exception of our second basewoman Amber Seevers who seemed to have scored a phone number of a Harvest base runner who very clearly violated our lead off Violator. Team Harvest returned with their own sound fielding as they snagged multiple well hit balls out of the air and breaking our defenses to put up some runs and capitalize on our errors. However, in true W+P fashion, the Violator’s did not go down into the night, they came up to the plate and hosted a round good hitting led by James Engler, Amber Seevers, Eric Driever, Matt Rudolph, Leah Polcyn, Elsa Gomez and Brian Lefholz. With this great push over the hump to put the us back into the lead for good, the Page 13 Violator’s walked away with 6-5 win over Team Harvest on Friday night. Thank you to the Tonello family and all the W+P family for coming out to support us with another exciting night of Coed Softball. Stay tuned as the Page 13 Violator’s take on the Ball Busters this Friday at 9:20pm.
As you all know by now the Violator’s Spring season is upon us and our first game is Friday, April 4th @ 7:20pm. I want to thank my fellow 2008 Violators squad as we have an overwhelming turnout this year ( I may actually have to turn some people away for some games!?!) I am looking forward to multi-generational team that we have formed from W+P softball past & future coming together to leave it all out on the field. We have Greg “The Hammer” Tonello coming out of retirement who is proving to us whippersnappers where his nickname came from. We have design extraordinaire, Terry Green, who has mention that he will make an appearance this season and amaze us with his throwing arm. We brought up, “Young-er Brian” Lefholz from our farm team in Arizona, a one man team at pitcher, left field, third base, etc. And lastly, we have recruited some our very enthusiastic interns, Stephanie “Shot Put” Scattini. I have longed for the smell of the grass, the dirty leather gloves, the wise cracks from the peanut gallery and the uplifting cheers from our very own Mama Violator, Mary Shelnut. I only hope she is able to expand her cheering section this year with more that own relatives. Come on out, W+Pers and family its an exciting night of drama and pure competition.
LET THE GAMES BEGIN!!!- Coach Will Sandusky
