Bay to Beach Bombers explode to debut victory in second week of Sanibel Softball League play
The Bay to Beach Bombers nuked an unsuspecting Williams and Williams last Wednesday night under the lights at the Sanibel Softball League.
Being a new team, little was known of the Bay to Beach Bombers before the season began. They have been underestimated these past two weeks, but it’s safe to say that won’t happen again.
In the early stages of the game it looked as though Williams and Williams were going to use every trick in the book. Williams player Steve Brunner hit a deep shot to his wife Tracy, who plays for the Bombers. As he expected, she couldn’t field the ball which led to an inside the park homer for Steve. But that was the last time the Williams team was in the lead before the Bombers exploded to a 26-11 victory. As a final exclamation point, Bomber star Greg Gleason hit a grand slam at the tail end of the game.
In the other matchups of the week, Aztec Plumbing Warriors scalped All Island Glass 20-6 and the Sanibel Grill put Sanctuary Island Electric on the fryer in a close 15-11 win. Sanibel Grill player Billy Lees hit the first recorded home run that went over the right field net and across San-Cap Road. Estimated distance: 385 feet.
