WNTN SOFTBALL 2005

Season Recap

The Needham Community Softball League played a tournament format in 2005 with fewer teams and games. WNTN struggled through the regular season with a 2-7 record before coming alive in a first round three games to one playoff victory over Lenahan. WNTN lost four straight games to Micks in the championship series while playing competitively. Losses in games three and four were both by one run.

While the dreaded fly out proved costly in playoff losses, the 2005 WNTN Softball All*Stars featured some new talent in outfielders Steve Popper and Lee Caplan and infielders Lou Fernandez and Mike Rosenberg. Josh Horwitz (.622) had the highest average, Matt Arkin and Steve Popper led the team in RBI's (17), Mike McLean's 27 hits led that category and Matt Stein and Lee Caplan topped everyone in extra base hits with 5.
