Behind timely hitting, solid defense and clutch pitching, the Good Guys, the resident softball team at Oak Crest, earned a pair of victories to capture the Annual Erickson Living Softball Tournament.
It was their third consecutive championship. The Good Guys also won the tournament in 2011, 2012, 2014 and 2015.
The event, held in Catonsville at Charlestown on June 8, matched residents from Oak Crest, Charlestown, Riderwood (Silver Spring) and Greenspring (northern Virginia) in a two-round format.
In the opening game, the Good Guys jumped to an early lead to defeat Charlestown 15-1.
In a highly competitive championship game, Oak Crest defeated Riderwood 7-5.
The Good Guys received vocal, enthusiastic support from residents of Oak Crest who made the trip to Charlestown.
If you weren’t able to make it to the game, Oak Crest TV will feature highlights as part of a show with updates from our Special Trips department. The show will air on Thursday, June 30th at 10:00 AM with rebroadcasts at 2 PM, 7 PM, 9 PM, and 12 AM. The show will also be available at www.oakcresttv.com.
