Aces rally in eighth to earn Region 5C playoff victory

In a low scoring game a few base running plays made a big difference. First there was a runner thrown out at home plate. Later in the game, a runner was tagged out between second and third after advancing to third too eagerly. Then on a ball in the dirt that was blocked, but kicked away just enough, two pinch runners each advanced to second and third.

Paul Drotos

Paul Richard Drotos was an excellent human being. He was born on December 3rd, 1952 in Detroit, Michigan. During his early life in Detroit and Dearborn Heights he spent thirteen years attending catholic schools, for which he always considered himself lucky. In his words: “The nuns truly loved us, and that really showed. They had nothing else.” In an early demonstration of his character, he found himself in deep trouble for shaking down his fellow students for their lunch money. He needed this money to send food to starving children abroad. That philanthropic scheme got shut down, but his spirit of giving never waivered.
