Gold Hawks Eliminated from Series, Great Season Comes to a Close

August 6, 2011 - In a quarterfinal game at the NABF World Series, the Toledo "Gold" Hawks saw a highly-successful season come to a swift and disappointing conclusion with a loss to the Chicago Zephyrs at Toledo's Ned Skeldon Stadium.  The loss served as a decisive and somewhat surprising end to an always-rewarding, often-glorious summer of baseball; however, the Hawk players, coaches, organizers, and fans parted ways warmly, fondly, and with positive feelings for one another that will linger long into coming years.  Indeed, the summer of 2011 will undoubtedly help to propel all of the individuals involved to their upcoming goals not only on baseball diamonds, but in all other endeavors for 2011-12.

DeDoes, Defensive Deeds Lead The Way

August 5, 2011 - In their second game of the day - and their final game in NABF World Series pool play - the Toledo Gold Hawks advanced untarnished into Saturday elimination play with an exciting 5-3 win over the Crystal Lake (Illinois) Cardinals.  Behind starting pitcher Mattie DeDoes (Oberlin/Ann Arbor, MI), and a solid defense that turned in some important plays, the Hawks got some key hits in the early innings and held on for the victory.  Drew Kuns (Bowling Green/Oregon) led the Hawk offense with a double and a triple among his three hits as the Hawks claimed the "winner's" position by going 3-0 against the rest of "Pool A".
