The 16th Annual Village of East Hills Mayor’s Trophy Softball Tournament was launched on Sept. 17 with more than 66 players on 6 competitive teams battling for the Mayor’s Cup Title.
Longtime organizers Peter Wagner and Stewart Faden have been running the sports competition with the approach of creating a competitive and fun community event.
Captains Wagner, Faden, Arron Elkowitz, Michael Spiel, Gary Cohen, and Brad Myers all entered teams that proved to be highly competitive. The tournament was a success, as each of the first weeks’ single elimination games were close and exciting.
With six teams entered, the play started on Sept. 17 at 8:30 am and ended at 1 p.m. The two finalists that emerged were teams led by Spiel and Faden. In week two, the Championship Game started at 8:30 a.m. on Sept. 24, 2017.
Faden’s team, an underdog through the whole tournament, fought valiantly, but in the end, Speil’s team won.
The final score was 12-5. Both Wagner and Faden are very proud of how this event has been an East Hills tradition for over 16 years.
As always, Wagner and Faden said they appreciate the support they always receive from Mayor Koblenz, the Board of Trustees and, of course, the residents of East Hills.
