The Monahan Tournament
The 11th Annual John J. Monahan Softball Tournament was held in Broad Channel on September 25. The tournament was a great success, with ten teams showing up ready to play ball. There were lots of exciting and nail biting games.
Congrats to the United Nations Team for their great championship run! Timmy Cash was awarded the MVP for his outstanding play. The Roxbury Misfits Team also had a great run coming in 2nd place, and John Conroy was honored with the Golden Glove. Thanks to all the teams for coming out to play including The Mayor’s Team, Big Tom’s Brew Crew, The Goon Squad, Q14, The Fat Cats, Knights for the Cure, Jack’s Boys and the Mudsharks.
