MASTERS SOFTBALL GOLDEN TEAM MOVING UP

2018 Masters World Series

By Patrick Lujan

After years of trying and eventually capturing the Masters Softball World Series AAA Division in 2017, the best Guam has to offer is moving up in competition.

GISA’s (Guam Islander Softball Association) gold means a promotion to the 40+ Major Division – meaning even stiffer competition amongst 65 teams in the Las Vegas Senior Softball/United States Senior Softball World Masters Championship at the Big League Dreams Softball Complex, Las Vegas starting this Friday.

“Overall, we’re pretty excited about the team,” said player/coach Benjie Pangelinan.  “Our approach is putting everything together with the hitting and strong defense. The speed will be a great addition with veterans that we have. We will be ready.”

The core returnees along with Pangelinan are Keith Hattig, Tony Yatar, John McDonald, Jimmy Reyes, Mike Cepeda and Patrick Alvarez.

The ‘new kids on the block’ are former GML stand outs Dale Alvarez and Gerson Hoebing.

“With the new additions of Dale and Gerson, they bring a lot of balance to the team with speed and flexibility to our defense,” Pangelinan added.

Moving up to the 50+ division are the likes of Peter Aguon, Jarvis Quenga and Tim Aguon.

“We all know what we have to do. We have played with the best and in the Majors Division we will just continue to play with island pride and see where the ball bounces. We know we can compete at that level.”

GISA gets things underway with two games on Friday, Vegas time.
