WATTERLESS SWATTERS WORLD CHAMPS AGAIN
     Watterless Swatters defeated NAAD #1 by a 14-9 count at Edison Park on
August 9, 1995 to win the 1995 Seal Beach co-ed softball league.  The ISC crew
finished the tournament undefeated in winning the double elimination tournament.
It was a see saw battle through 3 innings, but Watterless Swatters scored six
runs in the 4th inning to take a 12-8 lead and held on for the win.  The six runs were
scored on four hits, 3 walks and 2 errors.  The last three runs came on bases 
loaded walks!!  
     The ISC crew collected only 13 hits ( 3 were wire hits, 2 of which would have been
outs!), but were aided by 6 walks and reached base safely four times by error.  In
our three games against NAAD #1 we had 12, 18 and 13 hits.  We never got fewer
than 19 hits against any other team in the league and had not been held to less than
17 hits since 7-15-92 by SSD #2 when we had 15 hits.  Our fewest hits was 10 on
6-12-91 vs ASC!  In our four games against NAAD #1 each won two games with
NAAD #1 and Watterless Swatters each scoring 56 runs.  
     The ISC defense also had an off night as eight opponents reached base on what might
have been outs, but about 3 would probably be scored as hits.  However,  ISC cut
two runners down at the plate, one on a throw to Suzi Abbatine who made an excellent
catch of a hard high throw and than tagged the runner.  The second was on a strike from
left field by Dan Kaz to Alan Derow covering home to double up the runner trying to score.  
Great plays World Champs!!
     The anemic offense was led by Alan Derow and Dan Kaz.  Alan was 3 for 4 with a home 
run while Dan was perfect with a single, triple, 2 walks and 4 ribbies.  The rest of the
team was 8 for 30!!
     Another great pitched game by Alan Derow that held the hard hitting NAAD #1 team to
5 earned runs.  Alan is now working on that throw from pitcher to second base!!
     Thanks to everyone for playing this season.  Final stats will be distributed next
Monday and a team picture will be distributed in about a month.  Stay in shape during
the off season - tryouts next April!!!
