For the second consecutive game, the Shluggers played
without coach Brownie who is on the DL, but you would not know that
watching the game, as the cohesiveness the game was played with. Once
again, as has been the case of late, there was a well pitched game by
Leib, who also helped his own cause with 3 hits, including a triple.
The Shluggers, gave up 2 runs in the first inning, but came right back
to take the lead and never looked back. The game was won with stellar
defense. Perry played a great game at third & in general, the first
basemen (David & Josh B.) were kept busy all day. Other than Beth
Shalom's 3 run homer in the 6th inning, it was all Shluggers, all day.

The Shluggers looked impressive throughout the contest as took the lead early and never had to look back.
Brownie, who started in left field again, got things going in the second with a 2 run RBI triple. Followed by an impressive performances put on by Big Red, David, Perry and the Rabbi.
Leib "The Rifleman" Shaffer" was not only impressive on the mound again, but he lived up to the team name as he nearly knocked the stitching off the ball several in-route to his multiple base hits.
This week's Golden Glove Award goes out to Steve Black who made an unbelievable diving catch in center field to end a fourth inning threat.
However, as impressive as that never to be duplicated again catch was, most distinguishable honor goes out to Big Red as he made two fantastic catches in left/center field.
A post game interview revealed that David has been working with Big Red, helping his young protege harness his raw skills.

Chabad Shluggers Win Again
By Jason Bedrick:
(June 20th) On Sunday, Wellesley's Chabad Shluggers (4-4) smoked the Red Lox of Lexington's Temple Isaiah (4-4) by a margin of 23-9.
Shlugger Adam Pokey Levine completed a cycle (a single, a double, a triple, and a home run) while team captain, Rabbi Moshe Bleich, was just a single short of completing his own cycle. In the third inning, outfielder Ishay Grinberg hit his first homerun of the season and the Shluggers cycled through the entire batting order. Throughout the game, outfielder Chris Menachem Mendel O'Brien successfully fielded numerous seemingly-impossible-to-catch line drives.
The Shluggers were one of the original eight teams in the Men's Shul (Synagogue) Softball League which is comprised of Jewish men in the Greater Boston region. There are currently 18 teams. The Shluggers have a revamped team this year with new players filling almost half of the positions and they're looking forward to a successful season. This coming Sunday, the Shluggers will face off against first place Temple Beth El North at the Cabot School in Newtonville. A win would guarantee a playoff berth for the Shluggers.
Chabad Shluggers Win Again by Jason Bedrick
On Sunday, Wellesley's Chabad Shluggers came out of their two-game funk by winning their third game of the season in a 17-7 blowout against Lexington's Temple Emunah. Three weeks ago, the Shluggers beat Wayland's Temple Or Atid by the same margin.
Due to heavy rains over the weekend which left the infield a veritable mud pit, the Shluggers were forced to play on a makeshift field on the outfield grass. Team captain, Rabbi Moshe Bleich opened the game strong with a triple and then proceeded to earn four hits in four at-bats. The game's MVP was Yitz Kashnow, who hit the game's only out-of-the-park home run and made several outstanding plays.
