Sanibel Softball League kicks off new season
The Sanibel Softball League kicked off its first week of games with some stunning results last Wednesday and Thursday.
All Island Glass shined up to the new season with a hot opening win against the heavy favorites to win this year’s league – Royal Shell.
During the off season, All Island did some restructuring of their team that seemed to pay off. Captain Jeff Weigel stated, “We have a new star benchwarmer named Jared Vanegas. It’s a crucial role to play during these cold nights.”
Whatever the changes were, it seemed to work. All Island Glass dethroned Royal Shell, 24-8.
Of special note: Billy Lees of All Island Glass hit the first homerun of the season.
In other action on the diamond, The Sanibel Grill Rec’N’Crew clogged up Aztec Plumbing in a potent first win, 27-7.
The Lazy Flamingo flocked over the Sundial to clinch their first win of the season by a score of 23-16
And finally, the Great White Grill swallowed the defending champs Bailey’s Baggers whole in a staggering 23-8 victory.
“This win will sit well in the belly of the Great White,” said captain “Shoeless” Joe Ramsey.
The Sanibel Adult Softball League plays every Wednesday and Thursday night at the Sanibel Ball Fields. For more information, contact the Sanibel Recreation Center at 472-0345.
