Jim's Hideaway's slow-pitch softball team recently attended the Bud Light Nationals in Steamboat Springs, Colo. Among 100 teams from all over the country competing, Jim's Hideaway -- the only Maryland team -- finished seventh.

Team members are Ernie Temple, Pat Guthrie, Mike Spake, Mike Kirby, Lane Woods, Leroy Downin, Kevin Lieberman, Tim Heppding, Dino Rowley, Danny Knopp, Rusty Gardner, Tim Arrington and coach Bobby Gentile.

The team average for the two-day tournament was .565, with Arrington batting .692, Spake .690, Rowley .652, Lieberman .650 and Temple .644. The team scored 163 runs and allowed only 87.

"The weather conditions were very bad due to rain, which caused muddy fields," Arrington said. He emphasized how "great the entire team attitude was, and that the entire weekend was a lot of fun."

Its seventh-place finish earned the team a plaque that will be displayed at Jim's Hideaway, on 1439 Odenton Road.

Team members worked hard all year to help pay for their participation in tournaments. They held a dance and a raffle over the past year, but Jim Keeney, owner of Jim's Hideaway, supports the team financially as well.

Coach Gentile thanked the community, which supported the players in their fund-raising events, their families and friends who cheered them on, and their sponsor, Jim's Hideaway.

The team is going to Pennsylvania for a regional tournament next month. Good luck!
