First Annual HHF Softball Game!
August 12, 2017
What do you get when you take a Zumba instructor, a personal trainer, a hoard of gym-goers, a gym owner, and a bunch of his friends and family, and put them all together on a softball field? Eighteen homeruns, over thirty runs scored, and the First Annual Hampstead Health and Fitness Co-Ed Slow Pitch Softball Game.
This past Saturday, August 12, 2017, two teams of HHF staff and members—captained by owner Ted Curtin and his son Bennett Curtin—took the field at Miller Park in Sandown to compete in what is hoped to be the first of many annual HHF softball games. It was father against son, brother against brother, instructor against member, athlete against non-athlete, as the two teams went head to head for three hours battling for the title. Walk-up songs, bat-cracking hits, and a whole lot of laughs were the soundtrack of a fun summer afternoon on Miller Field.
It was a friendly game, but both teams came out to play nonetheless. Donny Sigillo, Tom L’Italien, and Nick Mascioli each hit four homeruns, followed by Ted Curtin with two homers, and Bennett Curtin, Dimitri Moore-Case, and Jake Mascioli with one homer each. In the end, son prevailed, and Bennett’s team came out on top with twenty runs to Ted’s twelve, earning the coveted plastic first place trophy. Nick Mascioli garnered the distinction of MVP with four homers and a slue of outstanding defensive plays.
