Softball Scene: At 64, Federle still going strong in slowpitch

TERRE HAUTE — As one softball season after another slips by, there seems to be one thing that remains constant: 64-year-old Chuck Federle just keeps on playing slowpitch softball.

Playing for the Indianapolis Classics last weekend, Federle and his teammates won the ISA 65-and-over world championship at Bridgeton, Mo. Federle, who turns 65 later this year, started in left-center field in all five of the Classics’ games.

The Classics earned wins over Akron, Ohio (twice), Champaign, Ill., and Kansas City during the tournament. They defeated Kansas City 23-18 in the championship game. Their only loss was to Kansas City in pre-tourney position play.

Congratulations to Chuck Federle on another year of softball.

The final standings are in for the Terre Haute Parks and Recreation leagues and the above-mentioned Federle’s name plays prominently once again. As a member of Beef O’Brady’s and Tabco, Chuck was a member of the Tuesday/Wednesday Group A and Group B league champions.

In Group A Tuesday/Wednesday league action, Beef O’Brady’s finished 12-0. In the Group B Tuesday/Wednesday league, Tabco earned league honors with a 10-2 mark.

Also playing for the Tabco/Beef O’Brady’s squad were Geoff Martin, John McDonnall, Brad Bilyeu, Ron Allen, Jeff Biggs, Travis Mason, Jay Etling, Nate Hall, Josh Hall, Ryan Nichols, Cody Gaskins, Steve Beeler and Scott Moore.

I might note that Martin, McDonnall, Bilyeu and Federle all see the half-century mark (50 years of age) in their rear-view mirrors.

In coed action, First Financial took league honors with an 11-1 record. Playing for this squad were Bryan Archer, Scott Boerner, Jason DeSanto, Eric Favre, Lenny Leclercq, Billy Nevill, Erik Smith, Justin Thompson, Nicole Fougerousse, Jackie Gustafson, Laura McCrea, Jeannine Mellish, Amanda Payne, Maegan Payne, Kacee Reynolds, Lindsay Starwalt and Kasi Thatcher.

The First Financial team is slated to participate in the ASA novice coed state finals Sept. 5-7 at Kokomo.
