"The new Eagle electronix
System makes Spirit the most
powerful treadmill on the mar-
ket. In fact, Spirit's new tread-
mill can "dead start" over one
ton! That's almost unheard
of..."

"Unlike some treadmills, the
electronics on Spirit treadmills
don't require a degree in engi-
neering to operate. The func-
tions are easy to learn and
practical to your needs."

Bruce Weberman takes a cut in front of his father, Marc, and "ump" Ed Radner.

and the league has become
more social.
Stuart "The B" Band-
alene became involved
with B'nai B'rith softball
just for that reason. "B'nai
B'rith softball allowed me
to mix friendships with
competitiveness and
remain in touch with some
friends I wouldn't other-
wise see," says Bandalene.
Not that the nine-time all-
star shortstop for Brother
hood Lodge didn't enjoy
winning a tournament or
two. "For me, the highlight
was the big international
tournament at the end of
each season."
Bandalene's team,
coached by Ed Radner, has
won the tournament five
out of ten years. Jeffrey
"The Bird" Sternberg, of
Wolverine Lake, played
during the 1980s, and
believes "a lot of guys used
B'nai B'rith softball as a
vehicle for meeting girls."
Sternberg claims he never
dated anyone who first
saw him play softball.
David Radner, 32, of
Farmington Hills, still
enjoys the league. He says,
"B'nai B'rith softball has
provided me with friends
and laughter to last a life-
time. A lot of it comes from
playing with the same
nucleus of players for the
past 15 years."
Stuart Sklar of West
Bloomfield remembers
when he and others used
to drive in every Sunday
morning from Michigan
State University for B'nai
B'rith softball, often corn-
ing from another softball
game. "B'nai B'rith softball
was so addicting that my
friends and I had difficulty
keeping our priorities
straight for a while."
Those priorities now
include a wife and two
kids.

Then there are those
who show up on Sundays
to participate in "the
weekly rehash of the hot
sports stories," which
always include some heat-
ed discussions according to
Howard Berlin of Hunting-
ton Woods.
The 10th annual B'nai
B'rith International Tour-
nament will be held Labor
Day weekend in Calgary,
Alberta. A total of 14
teams from Calgary,
Edmonton, Winnipeg,
Montreal, Toronto, Hamil-
ton and Detroit are expect-
ed to compete. Detroit was
the host and winner of last
year's international bash.
In fact, both finalist teams
were from Detroit.
That comes as no sur-
prise to Radner who says
"Over the years, the

"B'nai B'rith
softball allowed
me to mix
friendships with
competitiveness."

Stuart Bandalene

Detroit teams have fared
exceptionally well, even
though we play with the
Canadian rules which
include pitching an unlim-
ited arc as opposed to the
12-foot maximum Detroit-
ers are accustomed to."
The tournament has
turned into a huge success
with greater interest each
year. "It has become a real
melting pot for Judaism in
North America, where peo-
ple from parts of two coun-
tries can share so much
more than a softball
game," says Radner.
While competition is
keen for spots on the
Detroit team at this year's
