In Tier 2, Average Joes ran their record to a perfect 6-0, doubling the Calm Batters 18-9 and dropping Sauced 12-9. Loose Cannons won a pair of games 16-11 over Billy D’s Benchwarmers and 13-8 against the Peanut Gallery, keeping Average Joes within sight.

On a very sad note, Harry Lavoie passed away on Sunday morning.  Harry was an icon down at Lewis Park for decades as he and his wife Joan ran the concession. Harry will be missed by all of the ballplayers fastpitch and slopitch and we offer our deepest sympathies to Joan and all of the family.
