16" BROKER B-BALL WEEKLY ROUNDUP
16" BROKER B-BALL WEEKLY ROUNDUP
MVP: Golub was clinging on to a one-run lead when MB's Jack Gavin delivered the fatal blow with a three-run homer over the Green Monster (un-cut grass in deep left field).
 
Off the Field: Jack recently penned a report about how loft space in Chicago CBD is hot stuff.
 
Postgame schmooze: The Opening Day Party, hosted by the Webb Group as usual, filled both rooms at Gamekeepers with sweaty brokers trying their hand at karaoke, which was hosted once again by Bill Barry of Draper & Kramer. (Best to stick to 16" softball, sweaty brokers.) Speaking of softballs, Gary Denenburg of MB and GE Asset Management provided DRESL with this year's Clinchers softballs, complete with logos of each of their properties on the balls—181 W. Madison, 500 W. Madison, 230 W. Monroe, and so on, about 14M SF all together. (We have it on good authority that they won't have to change any of those logos this year.)
 
FIELD 1: CUSHMAN & WAKEFIELD 16, JONES LANG LASALLE 2. C&W was off to a 7-run lead in the first inning that JLL 2 could never recover from. Former Chubby Ellis All Star third baseman John Kinsella continued his mastery of the hot corner.
 
FIELD 2: JF MCKINNEY 10, UGL-EQUIS, 6. The game was tight until the sixth. Cold stone ringer Eric Schaller roped a tape-measure homer, while Big Jim Hickey was masterful on the mound.
 
FIELD 3: MB 10, GOLUB 7. Our own Jonathan Hobfoll laced three singles during the game (that’s the power of the press).
 
FIELD 4: MID AMERICA 17, CTK PARTNERS 7. Mid Am wins the game, highlights were, “Everyone hits! Everyone catches the ball!”
 
FIELD 5: CB 1 AND ONLY, 22 , KLEIN'S CORPORATE 7. Hitting stars for CB included Mark "Flow" Floersch, Rudy Rudersdorf and Mitch Adams, who went right more than Mitt Romney in the primaries.
 
FIELD 6: COLLIERS 23, TRANSWESTERN 10. Jordan Kaufman on the bump contributed 5-7 with three doubles and six RBIs.
 
FIELD 7: TISHMAN SPEYER PROPERTIES, INLAND AMERICA. In the battle of last year's cellar-dwellers, TSP came out on top.
