Men's softball second season begins
Ties in team standings were broken by face-to-face game results. For instance, the Brewhas and Hurricanes had the same 12-2 record but the Brewhas, which lost to the Highlanders and Wildcats won both of its games with the 'Canes.
Tim Andrews swats one of his eleven home runs during the derby.
The best game of the evening - maybe the best game of the year - was the early one, Loose Cannons versus Highlanders. There were no errors in the game and only a couple of walks. The whole game took less than 45 minutes. The Cannons scored a run in the top of the first, The Highlanders answered with one in the bottom of the fifth, then added three in the sixth. The Cannons replied with two in the seventh, making it a one-run game, and the contest ended as Ben Connelly's shot was caught against the fence in right. They played a second game last night.

Couldn't do without it
The veterans who created Tisbury's Veterans Park and presented it to the town in 1964 have every reason to be gratified by the way the park is in constant and varied use. For instance, it is not at all unusual to find the park occupied by folk of all ages engaged in sport. It's like a five ring circus with two softball games played concurrently with a soccer game, a beach volleyball game, an ultimate frisbee game, and a couple guys shooting hoops, as children play on a monkey climb, or seesaw, or slide.
