Longtime Blue Jay Jerry Hoffman Passes Away
It's with great sadness that SJMSBL has learned of the passing of Jerry Hoffman, a longtime player and manager of the former Dunn division Blue Jays. Jerry passed away October 16, 2017 after a battle with cancer.
Jerry was involved with local boxing. You can read a memoriam at Inside The Ropes.
A little over a year ago, Jerry was kind enough to write a few words for SJMSBL about the passing of teammate Gino Panelli.
RIP Jerry Hoffman.
SJMSBL League Championship Sunday October 8 at Los Gatos
For the first time since 1998 when the league split into different divisions there will be one league champion when the division winners meet this Sunday at Los Gatos high school.
The morning game will feature the Ettare Division Champion Phillies vs the Nicewonger Division Twins. The Phillies managed by Jose Zapien and Gilbert Guel had a remarkable year and bring a 19-6 record into Super Sunday while the Twins posted a 21-3-1 mark in winning their third straight division title under co managers Max Blankenship & Kye Madej.
Waiting for the winner of the morning game will be the legendary dynasty of the Dunn Division Champion Giants who sport a 20-4 record. Rookie manager Nate Harbarger did an impressive job in guiding the Giants to their 18th division title (and fourth straight) in their 26th appearance in the division finals as the league celebrates its 30th season.
The Giants are the last team to win an overall league championship in 1998.
American League Jumps to Lead, Loses It, Rallies for 8-7 All-Star Win
The American League All-Stars jumped to an early 6-0 lead after two innings only to lose it by the top of the 7th. A two-run rally in the bottom of the 7th ended the scoring for the night and gave the American League an 8-7 victory.
