1995 - George Gibson (left), Mike Mateleska (right). 
(What the hell happened?)




Matthew "Perp" Price, Bryan Gibson, Nate Price, Bruce Gibson



My brother Marlon Gibson, Nate Price and Bruce Gibson

 


My nephew and co-founder (and excellent hitter), Bruce Gibson

 


My nephew Bryan Gibson (hard to believe we're from the same family).  
He was usually good for a couple of homeruns a game.
Bryan played outfield and caught anything that came his way.

 


1998 WNCES Runner-up
Lost in the finals by a run at Burnside against Damage Incorporated



1999 WNCES Champions
Bruce Gibson, Bryan Gibson, Andy "Darth" Irlenborn, Brian Bistline, Nate Price, Mike Mateleska, Matthew Price, 
Chrissy Brunner, George Gibson, Lori Schwarz, Paula Wilson, Tracy Wilson


Ball that Bryan Gibson hit into the right-field parking lot at the State Hospital for a two run 
walk-off homerun (tying and winning runs) to win the 1999 WNCES Championship over Franks Pub. 
Mike Mateleska scored ahead of him and was the winning pitcher.  Bruce was on deck.
Tying run was on first with 2 outs.  Note the compression of the ball - the bats were crap back then.

 


2000 WNCES A Division Champions
Won on a seventh inning two out error that scored the tying and winning runs
against Franks Pub at Norristown HS.
Pretty much the same team, with the addition of Aaron Freed and Fred Riebsome


   
(Top, from left) 
Nate's mom, Marlon's wife Mary, Bruce and Bryan's grandmom (on mom's side)
(Bottom, from left)  
Bruce and Bryan's grandmom's sister, Bruce and Bryan's mom Angie, my mom (holding 2000 Championship trophy).
Winning is nice, but camaraderie (being around friends and family) is the #1 reason I love softball!

 


Lisa and I at Game 5 of the 2008 World Series.
I don't know how she puts up with my passion/obsession for baseball/softball practically all year around.

Greg Schempf, Chris Hendricks, Andrew Myers



Meghan Brogan - she's the one who suggested that I start a coed league with umpires.



Pete Marion and I started a new league (with umpires) in 2011.

 


Until 2016, this was about the closest thing we had to a coed team picture

2011 WNCES B Division Champions
Andrew Meyers, Annie Myers, Chris Hendricks, Dan Burnheimer, David Myers, Dennis Floria, Erika Hendricks, Kevin Kochka,
Mike Valyo, Nicole Pollini, Shelly Bauer, Steve Dimitry, Steve Dunbar, George Gibson
(It didn't occur to us to take a team picture)
Marathon game against the Master Batters at Heels Field, won 23-22 on a two out walk-off hit by Kevin Kochka
In the words of one of our opponents (as we were lining up to shake hands), "It's better to be lucky than good."



Alyssa and Kevin (2012 All-Star Game intros - Heels Field)

2016 East Norriton Men's League Champion 
Anticipating that Lisa would hide this trophy in a closet (it's like the battle 
of the leg lamp), I gave it to Jim Malarkey, since he managed the team.

Fortunately for me, there are pictures or videos of me falling down into the net after swinging out
of my shoes at one of Paul's BP pitches.  Unfortunately for me, there were plenty of witnesses. 




In 2017, we finally got jerseys.  Above is one of the designs that was shot down.
