This was a very sad week in Tillsonburg slo-pitch after learning of the passing of Randy Zylstra. He had played for Bob’s Sister (Robert Q Travel) the last couple of seasons and was very well known in the slo-pitch community.
Last week there was a moment of silence observed in the games between Smitty’s Electric and Ward’s Automotive, and Bob’s Sister and Platinum Concrete, with his #93 jersey hanging in his honour.
The A Division regular season has been completed with just a handful of games left to play in the other divisions. There will be one-game semifinals followed by best-of-three finals.
Bob’s Sister won both games last week to capture first in the division, winning in walk-off fashion over Platinum Concrete on Tuesday and by 14 over G.C. Lounsbury Dirty Mitts, halting a five-game winning streak. G.C. had beaten Haines Roofing by 11 the previous night. Haines scored a big win over Platinum.
Bob’s Sister and Platinum will meet in the one semifinal while G.C. and Haines will clash in the other.
