Tom Neagli and Rosemary “Killer” Myers-Neagli

In this COVID state of mind, the 2021 Robson Ranch 65+ Traveling Softball Team (RR 65+) went to four tournaments around the North Texas area. This is the first time ever that they walked away as winners of not just one, but two tournament championships—Heart of Texas in Waco and DFW Classic 65+ in Grapevine. Not a bad average for the RR 65+: 2 for 4 in tournaments as the overall Champions.

This year’s RR 65+ team was characterized as a well-rounded team with veteran players and rookie players. Our team leaders included Coach Ron Schwertner, Coach David McKie, and their hard-working staff David Riddle (who is a phenomenal tactician) and Louis Berthold (first base coach). Rosemary “Killer” Myers-Neagli helped out with team practice, was medical support, and a very loud cheerleader. Throughout the year the bats were cold as ice or as hot as fire. The pitching staff of Gary King, Brad Killingsworth, and Larry Lewis performed well while the defense worked their magic most of the time.

In the DFW Classic 65+ our Robson Ranch team had a perfect record of 5-0 with timely hits and walks. A big shout to Bob Wheeler, John Gauthier, Stu White, Gary King, and Michael Braam who were selected “All Tournament” by the coaching staff.

Congratulations to the entire RR 65+ team and their wives for letting them go out and play a kid’s game.
