Softball Scene: Fighting Pacifists strike back

TERRE HAUTE — Often times the “Softball Scene” column is devoted to reporting the scores and games for travel teams and individual tournament outcomes.

As a result, we tend to omit the many league teams playing their weekly game for recreational purposes. Therefore, I would like to highlight the efforts of one of the many recreational league teams in today’s column.

The Fighting Pacifists play in the Terre Haute Park and Recreation Wednesday night league at Spencer Field. With a Wednesday evening 12-6 win over Garmong, the team is presently sporting a 2-8 league mark.

Including several members of the local Church of the Latter Day Saints congregation, team members are Dan Rueckert, Darren Wilkinson, Sam Snideman, Brad Phillips, Ryan Jensen, Paul Murdock, Chang-Ting Lin, Paul Yang, Shane Guy, Drew Mathis, Mark Green, Go Fusigawa, John Pethick, Jason Holt, George Chen, Scott Blanton and Kyhle Porter.

The Fighting Pacifists, like the majority of adult teams, enjoy playing at the recreational league level and compete hard on a weekly basis. For that, I would like to say that your efforts do not go unnoticed.

A quick trip around the local softball scene found the following results in slowpitch league play:

The Tabco/Beef O’Brady’s squad recently pulled off a come-from-behind win. Trailing Aisin Brakes 22-12 with two outs in the seventh inning, the team rallied for 10 runs to tie the game and send it into extra innings. Tabco/Beef O’Brady’s then proceeded to win with a run in the bottom of the eighth. With the win, it remained undefeated in the Terre Haute Park and Recreation Wednesday League.

In Terre Haute YMCA/YWCA action, the State Farm Insurance team captured the league tourney title with a 20-10 win over the Mad Dogs.

The Brazil YMCA coed league play included a hard-fought contest between Schurick’s Heating and Cooling and Chop Shop. Chop Shop’s 12-10 win ended with a two-out, two-run, walk-off home run by Ryan Carter.
