Softball and Sun up at OHELâ€™s Camp Kaylie!Â Kaylie Cougars vs. Meridian Triple Net
The excitement was palpable up at Camp Kaylie on Friday July 12th, as David Brecher, president of First Meridian Mortgage, and the Meridian Triple Net softball team were locked in an intense game with the Kaylie Kougars.
This past Friday, David Brecher, a long-time OHEL supporter and recent OHEL Gala guest of honor, brought his legendary Meridian Triple Net softball team up to Camp Kaylie to take on the Kaylie softball team.Â The softball game was played under sunny, clear skies, and over 200 Camp Kaylie campers and staff were outside, watching and cheering for their team. With Chaim â€śLoboâ€ť Silber umping, Meridian Triple Net held a 1-0 lead through 5 innings, but went on to score 4 runs in the last two innings for a 5-0 win.
While most of the Kaylie team members and campers made their way to the field all the way from their bunks, the Meridian Triple Net team made the trip up to Wurtsboro, NY all the way from the Five Towns. Yehuda Koenig and Ben Englander also travelled up from the Five Towns on Friday morning to play for the Kaylie Kougars.
At the end of the game, all of the players shook hands, and in a show of good sportsmanship, Meridian Triple Net brought many gifts for the campers. Their gifts included baseball gloves, baseballs, hundreds of t-shirts, and fishing rods, so the Kaylie campers could enjoy fishing in Lake Kestenbaum.
In the words of First Meridian Mortgage president and team captain David Brecher, â€śspending the day up at Camp Kaylie was fabulous and a real eye opener for all of us.â€ť
