    2024 - A GOOD YEAR!!!  The 69 and over Friday morning league schedule is way down below.  They are now playing in the league
    tournament.  Pastor Hout’s team is having a good time but struggling for wins.  On the other hand, our Wednesday Co-ed team has been terrific.  They finished the regular season with a double header and two big wins to claim the regular season championship.  In the league tournament the team earned a bye and played in the final four.  After a win there, they were in the championship game against Family Matters.  What a great game.  It went back and forth until the last inning when Family Matters pulled away for the win.  Despite the loss, it was a great season for the St. Jacob sluggers and we are looking forward to next year!!!

    We are celebrating the many St. Jacob years of softball.  They have played for a long time and have not won many championships.  In fact, until the last couple of years, the only championship we ever won was 1976.  We are excited to get more information together about that team.  Pastor Hout recently had lunch with one of the players from that team - Jeff Schroeder.  It was terrific to share so many stories!!!  He remembers how they were in a very competitive league with 14 teams in it.  Here is the championship line-up as we were best able to piece it together:

    Bill Herman (Frank) Herman - pitcher
    Jim Long - catcher
    Barry Martin - first base
    Jerry Wantz - second base
    Ken Brown - short stop
    Gary Schroeder - third base and coach
    Alan McCabe - left field
    Steve Herman - left center field
    Jim Wantz - right center field
    Jeff or Scott Schroeder - right field
     

    St. Jacob won the Wednesday Co-ed tournament!!!  2023 was our year in many ways.  We did not have any games rained out and we won nine of our ten games to claim the regular season championship.  To top it all off, our team won the big league tournament at the end of the year.  St. Jacob has never won a tournament before!!!  Yes, it was quite a year for us.  How great it is to have our new championship t-shirts.  We are looking for a time to give them out and honor the team.  We also had a big wedding with two of our key players, Derek (pitcher) and Grace (outfielder and head recruiter).  It was a great day for the team as many of the players were at the wedding.

    Here was our 2023 schedule and results...........
     

    4/26-7:15 (Away) on field #2 vs. Team Coyle
             (we squeaked by with a 26-1 score)

    5/3-7:15 (Home) on field #2 vs. Sandlot Sluggers
            8:15 (Home) on field #2 vs. Isotec
             (we won 17-7 and 23-11.  Can you believe we were behind
               10-3 in the second game before we came back?)

    5/10-7:15 (Home) on field #2 vs. Where My Pitches At
            8:15 (Home) on field #2 vs. Team Coyle
             (we won 16-6 and 22-12 - great hitting!!)

    5/17-7:15 (Away) on field #1 vs. Sandlot Sluggers
            8:15 (Away) on field #2 vs. Isotec
            (we lost the first one 7-6 and won the second 14-12)

    5/24-7:15 (Away) on field #1 vs. Where My Pitches At
            8:15(Home) on field #2 vs. Sandlot Sluggers
            (two big wins 22-3 and 8-7)

    6/7-7:15 (Away) on field #1 vs. Where My Pitches At
            (we won the regular season championship with a 22-1 win)

    6/14-League tournament
            (we won our first game 22-7 and eeked out a 14-13 win
              to take home the championship trophy)
     

    Looking back, 2022 was a special year for us.  Can you believe that we were regular season champions!!!  Sadly, we did not win the league tournament as other teams seem to find ways to load up their squad while we played our players who got us there.  We are not crying, though, and are happy for all the fun and excitement we had in the 2022 season.  We also won the league in 2021 to join the 1976 team as the only league champions in church history.

    And here are the 2021 FINAL STANDINGS

    St. Jacob.................9-1
    Misfitz......................8-2
    Sandlot Sluggers......7-3
    Team Tricia..............4-6
    Woodhull..................2-8
    Down the Pike..........0-10
