WNTN SOFTBALL 2000

Season Recap

A great comeback season for the WNTN softball team fell just short of a championship when MacAdam Painting came from down 2 games to 1 to win games 4 and 5 and take the finals of the Needham Community Softball League.

The team was re-invigorated by the return of left fielder Pete Smith, who hit .537 and tied for the team homerun lead with five, and the addition of new talent like Jeff Jackson and Kevin Gorey and the signing of old Newton league foes John Toyias and Ed Murray.

Mike Donley had his best season yet (3-29-.538) settling in as a regular outfielder after years as utilityman.

While age has caught up with a few longtime starters, the team's resilient season was highlighted by a semifinal playoff round victory in five games over R & R, WNTN's number one nemesis since joining the Needham league.
