Shir Shalom Wins
Temple Shir Shalom defeated defending
champion Young Israel of Southfield 21-
19 on Aug. 18 to reclaim the
Intercongregational Softball League
championship. The two teams have
faced each other in the championship
game six consecutive years and each has
won three times.
A seven-run fifth inning proved to be
the difference for Shir Shalom this year,
which had to overcome injuries during
the game. Mike Cooper had a cut on his
leg, Ryan Schneider and David
Margolin pulled hamstring muscles, and
Danny Lippitt twisted his ankle.
Norm Lynn, who broke his collarbone
the previous week against Temple Israel,
was used as a pinchhitter.
Other members of the Shir Shalom
team were Bob Tarnow, Howard
Wintman, David Blum, Craig Efrusy,
Brian Efrusy, Gary Grossman, Howard
Rosner, Mort Meisner and Eric Mintz.
Other league teams include
Congregations B'nai Moshe and Shaarey
Zedek and Adat Shalom Synagogue.
