On July 8, Hicksville resident Richard Greene passed away in a house fire. Faced with this tragedy, his softball team, the Underdogs, has decided to honor their late captain and friend by doing two things Richard loved: playing softball and helping others.
The match started out cloudy and overcast with a cool breeze. About half way through we had a very light rain but we were able to finish.
The scores were good and bad. We had 43 men play today and we had 12 men shoot under net par and 4 more at even par for their round. There were only 27 holes pared but there were 3 birdies; one by Andy Malone on the par 3, 150 yard, 3rd hole and one each by Ted Marukawa and Lou Neumann on the par 4, 257 yard, 5th hole.
