Jazz Keep Rolling Along in 65+ Division in Redwood Empire (CA)


By Steve LaMontia, Director of Communications

There is a powerhouse team taking hold in one of the newer divisions of the Redwood Empire Baseball League located in Sonoma County in California. Their ‘Legends’ division is comprised of 65 and over warriors on the Jazz, Seals, Blues and Vets.  REBL also boats 25+, 35+, 45+ and 55+ divisions so the progression is beautifully in place. This writing, however, focuses on the Jazz in the 65+ group.

The Jazz are currently sitting atop the league with a perfect 8-0 record and have compiled an amazing 188-20 run differential.  Two of their most notable stars are Paul Johnson and Bill Delaney. Delaney is a 6’ 6” third baseman who is currently batting a cool .590 while Johnson put a stunning day together last week going 4 for 5 with seven RBI and four runs scored.  His average stands just a tad above Delaney at .600. 

Last week’s MSBL Player of the Week and teammate, Mark Yanuskiewicz, leads the team at .719 while manager Ralph Leef is a team second best at .706. Their team average stands at a freakish .540!

Pitcher Frank Milian is undefeated at 3-0, as is David ‘Doc’ Charp, while Frank’s ERA is a bizarre 0.60.  The team ERA is only 1.80.  Al Surges and Dick Giberti round out the pitching staff at 1-0 apiece. 

The Jazz seems to be on a roll as they work to defend their 2016 championship. I wouldn’t want to bet against these guys.  Many of them are also veterans of the MSBL World Series in Arizona in October so the pedigree runs deep.  We’ll keep you posted!
