The God Squad Softball team is gearing up for their 5th season of summer softball representing Christus Victor. The softball team is being led by the only manager in team history Matt Zarras once again. We caught up to Matt at spring training and he sat down for a quick interview to answer some of the pressing questions God Squad fans have wanted to know.
What are you most looking forward to this season?
After a long winter away the things I am most looking forward to is seeing all the smiling fans in the stands who come out week in and week out to cheer on the team. I’m super excited that we are returning nearly the entire roster from last season which now has another year of experience under their belts.
How do you get over the retirement of pitcher Denny Kneller? Is someone ready to set up and take the mound full time this season?
Losing Denny was a major blow for sure but as most fans have seen I took the mound quite regularly last season and I plan on it again this year. Peter Jorgenson has shown the ability to throw a good curve when needed and he will be relied upon this season as well. We also have Aaron Hermanson who started for the team 2 years ago before moving to the outfield and if needed he can be called on in emergency relief once again.
What new players were signed for this season?
We signed 2 new players in the off-season. The first one was Matt Neudecker, we then added Lance Mortenson right before spring training. Those two players are going to be used in utility roles to start the season as we blend them into the lineup.
What exactly does a church softball team do in terms of representing the church?
The whole reason we started a church softball team was I wanted something for the members of our church to partake in away from church that was “different”. Some people enjoy bible study, some enjoy community projects, our group plays softball while representing our church. My goal is to show people that church doesn’t happen only in a building on Sunday mornings. It can be a bunch of guys playing softball. We have earned the respect of a lot of people in the softball league as the time has passed. Teams always remark how they enjoy playing us and what we represent. We also always play the church only softball tournament Memorial Day weekend.
Where can we see the team in action?
The team plays Sunday evenings starting April 24th, the schedule is below. All games are at Johnny Cake Softball Fields in Apple Valley off of 140thst.
May 1st 7:30pm and 8:30pm Field I and E
May 8th 5:30pm and 6:30pm Field G
May 15th 6:30pm and 7:30pm Field I and G
May 22nd 5:30pm and 6:30pm Field I and F
June 5th 7:30pm and 8:30pm Field I
Come out and enjoy a wonderful evening and cheer on the team!
