Sam Sutton

Get ready for some incredible softball action because the Men’s Softball League is back and better than ever! As the league enters its 39th season, fans are gearing up to witness the incredible athleticism and skill of the players.

The League is highly competitive, and the players give it their all every week. With a range of ages and experience levels, the League is a great representation of our diverse community in Brooklyn. 

From fresh-faced newcomers like Jeffrey JUFA Dweck to veterans like Jackie Schweky, who has been playing in the league since 1984, the league is a true testament to the love of the game. 

This year, each team took it upon themselves to sponsor one of our community’s charities to help bring awareness to these wonderful organizations.  

Sephardic Bikur Holim, Sephardic Food Fund, Maskeel el Dal, CARE, SAFE, and the Community Assistance Fund are all represented.


First up, we have the Lemonheads, led by young centerfielder Isaac Sasson and his cousin, shortstop Mordy Chrem. These two cousins have been playing together for years, and their dynamic on the field is undeniable. With Sasson’s lightning-fast speed and Chrem’s impressive fielding skills, the Lemonheads are a force to be reckoned with. 


Next, we have the Supersonics, who are run by the talented pitcher Dan Braun. Braun’s arm is one of the best in the league, and his accuracy is unmatched. With his leadership and skill, the Supersonics are sure to give the other teams a run for their money.

The Constanzas 

The Constanzas are up next, and they’re led by the veteran Swiss Army knife David Tawil. Tawil has been playing in the League for years and has proven himself to be one of the most versatile players on the field. Whether he’s playing infield or outfield, Tawil’s ability to adapt to any situation makes him a valuable asset to the team. 


The Goblins are also in the mix, with Isaac Cohen and his friends at the helm. These young players have a lot of energy and enthusiasm, and their love for the game is evident in their play. They may be newcomers to the league, but they’re definitely ones to watch. 

Joe Who? 

Joe Who? is another team that’s sure to impress. They’re led by the defensive shortstop Ralph Wamma Shamah, whose quick reflexes and impressive fielding have earned him a reputation as one of the best players in the league. With Shamah’s leadership and the team’s solid defense, Joe Who? is definitely a contender for the championship title. 


Band of Brothers 

Last but not least, we have the Band of Brothers, led by elite hitter Marc Richter and his brother, third baseman Albert Richter. These two brothers have been playing together for years, and their chemistry on the field is undeniable. With Marc’s incredible hitting and Albert’s solid fielding, the Band of Brothers is a team that can’t be overlooked.
