1980 Softball Champs! M & D Auto!
I can't believe it has been almost 30 years that my M & D Auto softball team used to war with Reco's. Our team from top left, Sam Skillman, Andy Lameroux, Mark Smith, Rob Colivas, Kevin Gomes, Mike Carroll and Samoasoftball. From the bottom left, Rick "Fergy" Mitchell, Kurt Brundgardt, Loren Price, Sam Colivas and Mike Robinson. We had a great defensive team that just scored enough to get by.
The Times Standard used to do stories on adult softball both for fast pitch and slow pitch. This was a great bragging rights picture for the Sprague's. We won the game, they got the press. Bob was an incredible player who had a unconventional swing but could put the ball out of any local parks. Bob played left field, Brother Billie ("Basil") played 3rd and brother Dave was at 2nd. "Butch" Rasmussen pitched, Dave Schmidt, Randy McBride and Jimmy Sloss also played for Reco's. Click the story to enlarge and read!
