Congratulations to John Roels for retiring the 1937 New York Yankees!

Tournament MVP? 1937 Lou Gehrig who hit .353 with a .522 OB%, 12 H, 12 BB, 14 R and 7 RBI.

All in all, everybody seemed to have a wonderful time, even during the down time as guys chatted and made new friends, and there were some really great games played! Plus, a bunch of you guys helped me get rid of 265 APBA teams that I would have just never used.

REMEMBER, the 2nd Annual Greater Michigan APBA Baseball Tournament (with the parameter of NO World Series Winners) will be held on Saturday, March 5, 2016 at Steaks Eatery in Jackson, MI.

Once again, thanks guys, especially those who traveled so far to attend.

Your friend,
Pastor Rich Zawadzki
