NEWS & ANNOUNCEMENTS

Manager's wife killed in post-game accident

John Myers, long-time manager of Carroll Gray reported that his wife, Peggy, was in an
auto accident about one hour after their games yesterday. She joined several team members and their spouses at lunch after their games . Afterwards she was driving back to home in a separate car when a driver coming the opposite direction crossed the center line and hit her headon. She ultimately passed away at Shock Trauma last night at 10:30 PM.

John said that Peggy was the official scorekeeper for their team and went to all of the games (home and away). Over the years she had gotten to know most of the managers of the other teams and enjoyed the
relationships she had with them.

Please keep John and his family in your thoughts and prayers. I will post the funeral arrangements as soon as they become available.

BSSL Records and Standings

Over the past several seasons, Rich Costa, who plays for Glen Elg, has designed and prepared a very creative and useful document entitled BSSL Records and Standings. It includes the results of the games played as to wins and losses, the number of times teams have beaten each other and the resulting standings shown by each division. As I have in the past, I intend to included this report in this space throughout the season. To view it, click HERE.
