2003 Sportsmanship Award

Mike Corliss, Cannon Roofing

2003 Norristown Home Run Derby

Greg 'Hammer' Wenning of Cannon Roofing once again organized this great event to raise money for Sully 'Heels' Gelet and Wierman/Heels Field. Upwards of 27 people paid $25 apiece to enter this year's event. All the proceeds go to Heels for the field maintenance. Any new softballs as well as the used ones will also be given to Heels to use as he's sees fit for the remainder of the playoffs. Hammer spends a lot of time and effort putting this together procuring sponsors and volunteers to help out. Bob Hornsby donated this year's T-shirts. Other items that were raffled off were donated by Diamond Star Sports and Superior Softball Supply as well. Steve Moloney of the Little Brown Jug captured this year's championship putting on a power display as he hit 11 on the first round, 6 in the second and finally 10 more in the final round to put the finishing touches on title as 2003 Norristown Home Run Derby Champ. Mpst of Moloney's bombs were hit to deep left center and many cleared the trees. Heath Hedderick and Steve Cordi of Aqua Sun Pools fell short in the final round. Last year's champ, Craig Balmer of Aqua Sun once again made it to the finals as did last year's fourth place finisher Tommy Pagel of the Little Brown Jug. The other finalist was Ian Morris of Maennerchor Club who hit some titanic shots. Some monstrous shots were hit during the course of the day. Rob Himes of The Hitmen, Rob Amerson of Seamus Mulligan and Eric 'Scooch' Pascucci of D&D hit some of the more impressive shots. Brothers Anthony 'Skits' DiFlore and Jake DiFlore of the Players Club put on a good showing as did Bill Gulotta of the Brown Jug and John Ouensworth of Cannon. Event coordinator Greg Wenning of hit the farthest balls to right field as his majestic shots cleared the hills beyond the RF fence. A special moment occurred when Cannon Roofing's Buck Mathias banged out five homers in his time at bat. After undergoing a kidney transplant this past off-season, this was a touching moment as he looked like the Buck of old. He is a class act act and everybody was pulling for him. Photos below are Steve Moloney - champ (top row left), Heath Hedderick - runner up (top row right), Greg Wenning - event coordinator (bottom row left) and Craig Balmer - 2002 Champ standing with Heels Gelet (bottom row right). If I forgot to mention anybody, sorry, there was plenty of beer there also!
