Congratulations to Charles Ringler for his induction into the SLSA Hall of Fame!
And, to all the award winners, congrats!!
• Sergio Murrieta won the Ernie Overstreet Award,

One more announcement I would like to make regarding a little game we played at the picnic. The closest guess of the number of bottlecaps in the jar, and the proud new owner of a windchime which will be made with love by yours truly, is…
Richie Decesare—who was the very first guesser and whose guess was within 6 caps! The magic number was 438, and Richie’s guess was 444. Congrats!
Thank you to all for making this the best softball season yet! Cheers to another great year!
