eam Impact made an impact
this summer on the B'nai
B'rith softball league.
Even though manager Greg Lewis'
squad finished in third place in the
four-team league during the regular
season, it won three straight games in
the post-season and captured the play-
off championship.
"Defense and clutch hitting" were
the keys to Team Impact's title, accord-
ing to Gary Klinger, athletic chairman
for the B'nai B'rith Great Lakes Region
and Team Brotherhood manager.
Team Zeiger, managed by Rick
Sherline, won the regular-season
championship with a 13-7 record.
Team Brotherhood (11-9), Team
Impact (10-10) and Team Pisgah
(6-14) rounded out the standings.
It was a short post-season for Team
Zeiger, which lost 14-9 to Team Pisgah
and 16-4 to Team Brotherhood and
was quickly eliminated from the dou-
ble-elimination playoffs.
Meanwhile, Team Impact beat Team
Brotherhood 10-7 and Team Pisgah
14-6 to earn a berth in the champion-
ship round.
Team Brotherhood edged Team
Pisgah 5-4 to earn a shot at Team
Impact, but Team Impact stayed per-
fect in the post-season and won the
playoff title with a 9-2 victory over
Team Brotherhood.
Ahead 3-2 over Team Brotherhood,
Team Impact tacked on six insurance
runs in the bottom half of the sixth
Also on the Team Impact roster were
Greg Franco, Seth Gorback, Scott Berger,
Mike Sokolowski, Robert Wittenberg,
Gregg Schultz, Lee Isenberg, Mike Feld,
Leo Gillerman, Brook Morris, Marc
Weiss and Ryan Weiss.
Also on the Team Brotherhood
roster were Dale Taub, Mike Klinger,
Nathan Cohen, Seth Goldman, Steve
Dines, Adam Goldman, Matt Brand,
Iry Kriszenfeld, Jason Miller, Russ
Young, Brad Hantler, Alex Tapper,
Randy Otis, Matt Kash and Jonny

This was the 42nd year for the B'nai
B'rith softball league, and even though
it was the second consecutive season
with just four teams, nobody was com-
"It was a competitive league.
Anybody could have won the champi-
onship:' Klinger said. "We'd rather have
four good teams with people showing
up to play each week than eight teams
with weak teams and teams forfeiting"
League games were played Sunday
mornings at Drake Sports Park in West
Bloomfield. The playoffs stretched over
two weeks.

Cagers Rebound
Down by 19 points to Atlanta in its
first game at the JCC Maccabi Games
in Austin, Texas, the Detroit U14 boys
basketball team staged a valiant come-
back but lost by one point.
Undaunted, and against some of
the tournament's top teams, Detroit
bounced back to beat Fort Lauderdale
and Austin before losing to eventual
champion Los Angeles.
Dean Hysni was Detroit's leading
scorer and Jordan Machlis was the top
rebounder. Rick Kaczander and Larry
Sherman were the coaches.

Help Wanted
Mark Weiss is looking for hockey play-
The coach of the Frankel Jewish
Academy Jaguars is putting together a
Midget B team for players born in 1997
and 1998 that will play in the Little
Caesars Amateur Hockey League under
the auspices of the Farmington Hills
Hockey Association at the Farmington
Hills Ice Arena.
While players don't have to be a
Frankel student or Jewish to be on the
team, the team will not play or practice
on Shabbat or a Jewish holiday.
This is the team's second year. It
played at a tougher Midget BB level last
year, with nine of 17 players Frankel
Prospective players should contact
