Softball rolls into


ABC has been wasting countless time
and money covering the 1982 Major
League Baseball Playoff Series, when
they should be directing their efforts
towards the big news in the world of
sports, the 1982 Intramural Softball
Championships. Forget about Mr. Oc-
tober out in Anaheim. Disregard the an-
tics of America's Team down in Atlan-
ta. Howard Cosell should be babbling
on about the exploits of Rumsey Blue,
whose crushing 20-0 victory over Taylor
Gold earned them the first spot in the
residence hall semifinals. Tommy
Lasorda should not be lamenting the
fact that he couldn't successfully
defend his World Series title, he should
be extolling the efforts of the Bush Bun-
nies, who advanced to the finals of the
Women's division with a victory over
the Southern Transfers. The champions
in each division will be decided on or
before Tuesday, and you can continue
to follow the exploits of your favorite
team next week in the Daily.
Seven teams entered the playoffs
aiming for Tuesday's finals. The field
has already narrowed to four teams as
Beta Theta Pi,, Phi Delta Theta and
Lambda Chi Alpha were eliminated in
this weed's quarter-final round. Theta
Delta Chi will square off against Sigma
Alpha Epsilon on Tuesday at 7:00. On
an adjacent field, Triangle will face
Sigma Nu in the other semi-final game.
The winners will play immediately af-
ter those games finish to decide the
championships. The team to look for:
Sigma Nu, it has not given up a run in
its two previous games.
Here are two of last week's playoff
Triangle 17, Lambda Chi Alpha 5
Triangle wasted no time in this game.

I M Roundup

Five singles in the first inning staked
them to a 3-0 lead. Lambda Chi Alpha
stayed close through four innings,
trailing by 8-4 going into the fifth.
Triangle then broke the game open.
Seven consecutive runners reached
base before Keith Korpi put the
finishing touches on the nine-run rally
with a two-run homer. Jim Lisi went
four for four with two triples and a
home run for the winners, while
Richard Peske added three hits. Ian
Thornburn scored twice for Lambda
Sigma Alpha Epsilon 9, Phi Delta Theta 3
Paul Fryermuth's triple in the first
inning capped a two-run outburst for
SAE. A three-run homer by Mark
Derha in the second and a four-run fifth
inning sealed Phi Delta's fate. 5
Leading hitters for SAE were Chris
Fowler and Fryermuth. Jeff Harris
scattered eight hits in limiting Phi
Delta to three runs.
Th'ere were so many good residence
hall teams that there are three playoff
divisions with a total of 59 teams. Com-
pare this with the quality of major
league baseball where only four teams
were good enough to make the playoffs.
The following teams have reached
the quarter-final round in the 'A'
division: Van Tyne Varsity, Fletcher A,

Elliot G. Men, and the Adam Ants. In
the only quarterfinal game already
played, Rumsey Blue plastered Taylor
Gold 20-0. The Blue are the team to
watch next week. A game from last
Adam's Ants 9, Kelsey Roots Gold 8
Pete Burdalas scored the winning run
in extra innings to allow Adam to ad-
vance to the quarterfinals. The Ants
needed a big rally to win the game.
Going into the fifth inning, they trailed
7-0 and their championship hopes
looked dim. But it was Kelsey's turn to
get antsy when their lead was cut to a
single run in the fifth inning. Curt
Dobler had the key hit in the six-run
rally, a home run with two men on base.
The Ants 'still needed a two-run
seventh to send the game into extra ,in-
nings and had to survive Kelsey's
eighth inning, when they put two men
on base.
Brad Maxon's three for four effort
with two RBIs was nullified by the Ants'
late inning comeback.
A field of three exceptional teams has
already been narrowed to two. The
Bush Bunnies defeated the Southern
Transfers last Sunday to reach the
finals, where they will face the H.B.'s,
which received a first-round bye. This
division is a toss-up, as both teams have
won their previous games im-
pressively. Although the H.B.'s may be
HOPPING mad, the coin toss favors the
Bush Bunnies to capture this cham-
In the 'B' division, only three teams
are left of the six that made the playof-
fs. W.D. Awesome has already reached
the final round while Hunt House and
Wenley have yet to play their semifinal
game. Make an Awesome pick for this

The quarterfinalists have been
decided in the 'A' division of the in-
dependent competitive league. The
Beaver Patrol kept its impressive win-
ning ways going with a 19-0 thrashing of
Vanilla Thunder. Another team that
has been very impressive has been the
Cocksmen, who rolledto a 7-0 victory
over the Rasta men to advance. Kid
Ginsoe and the Dilly Bars have shown
IM followers a strong squad this
season, but the choice for overall
honors here is the Patrol. The 'B'
division is much more wide-open, and
any number of teams could be the
champs. Teams that should be closely
watched are The Boys in Business, The
McGarret 12's, and Brewer's Best. The
'C' bracket should be a showdown bet-
ween the Fun Bags and the Bruins.
JP in Your 113, Sphinky's Crackers 1
The Crackers took an early one-run
lead in this battle to advance to the
quarterfinals. Cam Hill tripled in the
first and scored on a force out. That was
the only lead that Sphinky's men were
to see, as JP and his crew blasted the
game apart with six runs in the third
inning. A similar six-run outburst in the
fourth turned the game into a rout.
Dave Recker was 3-4 and pitched In
Your I to the victory. Rich Joyrich was
three-for-three with two runs scored,
and Rob Humphries added a home run
in the seventh for good measure.
Beaver Patrol 19, Vanilla Thunder
Six runs in the first were enough for
the Patrol as they eased their way into
the quarters over a thunderless Vanilla
Thunder. Mike Rucinski was four-for-
four with two home runs, seven RBI's,
and four runs scored to pace the Beaver
onslaught. Mike Czarnota added a pair
of homers and six RBI's, and Dave
Nelson scored three times, as Vanilla
Thunder was devastated.
The McGarret 12's 12, MM's 11
Bill Knauer doubled and scored on an
error in the bottom of the seventh to
give the 12's the victory in the 'B'
division playoffs, The MM's took a
three-run lead in the first and led 10-9
after four innings.
