Player of the Week: Rob Mason, manager of the Tishman Speyer team. He turned around a team that was 0-9 in 2011 into a 7-3 team facing off against UGL in the semi-final game.
Off the field: A director at Tishman Speyer, Rob’s expertise includes acquisitions, asset management, and debt structuring.
Postgame Schmooze: At Gamekeeper’s, Lee Golub gave away $2,500 in greenbacks in the annual DRESL Trivia Contest. Golub & Co is a generous and longtime sponsor of the league. All who attended say the party equaled last week’s DRESL Idol Karaoke Contest in outrageous fun and sets the bar for many years to come.
Field 1: Tishman Speyer 3, Transwestern 0. The story of the game was defense, and while both teams played fantastic defense, TW couldn’t get anything cooking on offense.
Field 2: J.F. McKinney 25, Inland 15. For the victors, every player had at least two hits, with Jack McKinney Jr. going 3-5 with three ribbies. Great game for both squads, and they should be very competitive next season.
Field 4: JLL 15, MB 3. Hitting stars for JLL: Brian Recsetar, 3-3 with a HR and three RBI; Jason Vervack, with his bases clearing triple; Josh Vervack, 2-3 with two doubles and two RBI; Todd Schaefer, 2-2 with three RBI; Scott Moore, 1-1 with two walks and three runs scored and a big scoring, sliding play at the plate to fire up his teammates.
Field 5: Golub 16, Bradford Allen 5. BA started off strong, scoring three in the first with Golub responding with four of its own in the bottom of the frame, and Golub never looked back.
Field 6: Klein’s 15, C&W 12. The top five Klein’s did most of the production, with Tom Berarducci having another monster game, going 3-4, five ribbies and two runs.
Field 7: CBRE 19, Mid America 2. CB looked like the champions they were two years ago. They scored four in the second, followed by a tidal wave of 14 in the fourth.
Field 1: UGL 7, Klein’s 1. Hitting stars for UGL were Jeff Goad, Greg Moy, and Todd Mendelsohn, with two clutch hits each. And they were clutch hits indeed, as the Klein’s also played tight defense. But the better team won. UGL will face a rambunctious and unpredictable TSP squad next week.
Field 2: Tishman Speyer 15, JF McKinney 3. In the most surprising game of the night, TSP waxed the once-powerful McKinney squad. TSP’s bats came alive, scoring 10 runs in the first three innings. Seven TSP hitters had RBIs, including Tim Pettit and Patrick Kearney with three and Jon Azulay with two.
Field 4: Colliers 5, CBRE 3. The Cocky Colliers Cowboys barely snuck by the year-long underperforming CBRE. After trailing for a long spell, Colliers finally took the lead in the bottom of the fifth, then never looked back, playing flawless defense (like the ’85 Bears, they were).
Field 5: JLL 8, Golub 6. A well-fought game by both squads, creating another instant classic in the long-running rivalry of these two teams. All the scoring for this game was completed after the fourth inning. The defense was the star of the game, led by shortstop Andy Serafine, 2nd baseman Brad Nichols, and middle infielder Bill Bernabei.
Thanks once again to DRESL commissioner Richie Klein for providing the play-by-play. Next week, the semis and the championship game!
