THE MARYLAND MERCHANTS men's softball team placed second out of 55 teams in the Bud Light Triple Crown World Series held Oct. 20-22 in St. Augustine, Fla.

Leroy Downin, Mike Kirby and Ernie Temple made the All World First Team, while Pat Guthrie and Dennis Mallonee made the All World Second Team. Mr. Downin, who amazed the opposing teams with his skills at shortstop, was selected as the tournament's most valuable defensive player.

The team, managed by Bobby Gentile, would like to thank the area businesses that helped the team survive. They are Jim's Hideaway, Rocky Run, Marley Station Mall, Ernie Richards, Odenton Shell, Jerman's IGA and Shoreline Seafood.

A special thanks to the players and their families who have shared much of the financial burden.
