The 2018 season seemed like it never was going to begin when a late April snow storm dumped a foot of
snow over the fields, but at last the sun came out and melted all the snow away and the season has
finally begun.
The God Squad softball team took the field on a clear evening on May 7 th with raised expectations after
posting the first winning season in team history last year finishing 12-7-1 and making it into the second
round of the playoffs. The entire team has returned another year seasoned (or a bit more gray on top in
some cases) and it looked like they had not even taken the winter off. Bats were hot in both games with
the Squad winning the first one handily 15-2. The second game proved to bring a tougher task and the
Squad held a two-run lead going into the last inning. Unfortunately Cross Roads Church put three-runs
up to take the lead but the bats refused to stay quiet and the Squad pushed one more run across to
force the 13-13 tie. The Squad sits tied for second place after the first week.
Come on out to catch the Squad on Monday’s at Aronson Park in Lakeville and watch some competitive
Church Softball. There is fun for the whole family and a huge park for those with children to run around
and play too. The schedule is posted on the church bulletin boards for times or you can go online to the
God Squads Facebook page and give us a like and get all the details there!
Play ball!
