Forest Hill’s softball teams chase a championship every summer in the church softball league. In the past 8 years Forest Hill has been to the finals 7 times and won the championship 5 times! We play to win but no one takes it too seriously (yeah…right…) The games are enjoyable for spectators as well as players, and the post-game get-togethers and cookouts are great ways to celebrate, no matter what the final score is.
If you’re interested in playing (actual softball skills not needed!), email Jason Hidek (330-284-5007) or see Dan Shaner or Jeff Phillips at church.
2011 Season ~ 5th CHAMPIONSHIP IN A ROW!
2010 Season ~ 4th CHAMPIONSHIP IN A ROW!
After the double elimination championship games were rained out, the league went to a single elimination game. Expectations were not high since our 3 previous championships were won in double elimination. But the Forest Hill bats came through and Team A finished in first place again….for an unprecedented 4th year in a row!
Season Highlights: Daryl Musick and Jason Hidek played in the first ever Heights Church League vs Euclid League All-Star Game.
2009 Season ~ 3rd CHAMPIONSHIP IN A ROW!
For the 3rd year in a row, Forest Hill’s softball team won the 12-team Heights Church Softball League. After defeating Grace Lutheran (18-2) and First Baptist (10-0) to reach the Finals, they then had to beat St. Ann’s Parish twice. They held on to win the first game 10-8 and then rallied back to win the second game 18-15. Keith Logan and Dave Burleigh led the way with 11 hits each!
Thanks to all who supported our softball teams this year. Having two teams allowed us to welcome many new players who enjoyed family fun, fellowship and friendship throughout the season.
