2012 1ST ANNUAL COMMUNITY SOFTBALL GAME A SUCCESS

 

FISHTOWN AC DOWNS ALUMNI TEAM 9 - 0

 

The 1st Annual Fishtown AC Alumni Community Softball Game was played under sunny and mild conditions last Saturday, August 18, 2012, at Newt's/Schissler playground.  The event drew over 40 players, coaches, and onlookers.  The two teams, one from the Fishtown Athletic Club and the other from the Fishtown AC Alumni, squared off at just after noon and went head to head over the next couple of hours.  The game was played well on both sides, with the score only 2 - 0 in favor of the AC going into the 5th inning.  After that, things did not go so well for the Alumni squad.  With the AC many getting timely hits, the score quickly jumped to 7 - 0 in the 7th inning, and when it was over the AC had added an additional 2 runs.  Of note defensively for the AC was their ability to pull off no less than 6 double plays, thus ending many an Alumni threat.

Congratulations to the AC squad on their victory, but most importantly thanks to all of the players that came out to make this game a very enjoyable experience.  By signing on as players, all of the participants received a commemorative tee shirt and automatically became members of the Fishtown AC Alumni Association for the next year.  We look forward to seeing all of our new members at upcoming events.
