2014 was Bob Bezzi's Year!

2014 was a very good year for Bob Bezzi, Madison MSBL player.

  • His Friday night Pirates were co-champions of the 35+ League
  • His Saturday Milwaukee MSBL team, the Brewers were the champions of the 55+ League
  • His Sunday team the 45+ Grays were also champs, although Bezzi was only a sub on that team.
  • To top it all off, in Phoenix, Arizona, his 65+ San Antonio Bronco team was World Champions. San Antonio Broncos - Bezzi
 
 
 
"In my career, I've gone decades between championships. To win 4 in one year is very lucky. Winning in Arizona is a thrill that can't be topped for an amateur  ballplayer. I think competing against younger guys here at home prepares me for Arizona where I play against my own age group."
 
 
 
 
World Series Ring Bezzi has played for San Antonio for about 4 years, and also plays on Seattle and Washington DC teams in  national tournaments. He is also playing for the first time this fall in the 70+ division for the Red Deer Legends  out of Canada. In 2014's tourney he was the Broncos primary catcher, hitting .455 for the tournament including 3 hits in the champions game. 
 
MSBL of Southern Wisconsin has been his home base since the early 90's, playing basically for the same team starting as the Sports Pub, then becoming the Brewers, the Cubs, and currently the Pirates. He had a 4 year interruptions when the lived in Des Moines and played in the MSBL there. 
 
Bob's first year of organized baseball was 1957 in the Upper Bezzi on the Mound w/ Broncos
Peninsula, where his Rapid River Little League team won
the district championship. He's been at it ever since, except
for several years as a softball player when men's baseball was
just a far off vision. Bezzi is also a member of the Delta
County Slow Pitch Hall of Fame.
 
The highlight, however, of the 58 years of competitive ball playing came two years ago when he was able to play side by side with his son Pete, who joined him on the 35+ Pirates team. 
 
Bob is currently retired, living the good live in DeForest and plans on playing until Father Time finally catches up with him.
