Bassler undefeated for week in bocce

June 1, 2013

Bassler Equipment was the only team this week go undefeated in the Yatesville Bocce League. By going 2-0 they were able to retain first place in what is shaping up to be a tight race. The Bassler Boys are Paul Santarelli, Bob Barbacci and Henry Korpusik.


Their fourth member, Henry Rodegherio, is currently on the D.L. but is expected back soon.


After the first round of play nine teams occupy only four places, with three teams each tied for third and fourth places.


This is a good indication of the quality of competition and bodes well of a highly contested season.


Did you ever get behind a slow foursome on the golf course or a turtle in traffic?


Well that is what it is like when you play Ralph Campanella. Ralph, argueably, the best player in the league has been dubbed “Marathon Man”.


It is not that he is a deliberately slow player, it is that he is that thorough! When you play against Ralph you had better learn patience in a hurry because if you don’t he will wear you down.


So if you come up against Ralph “Marathon Man” Campanella be prepared for a long match. What a competitor!
