There is a lot of softball action going on here: hitting, missing, jumping and anticipating. First Federal is playing somebody with NH on their hats. Having said that, that’s all I know.
These must have been taken after I graduated from flashbulbs to electronic flash because strobes do a lot better job at stopping action than the bulbs.

NH stands for New Hamberg. In pic 4, that looks like Andy Pemberton on the left.
That does look like me. But, I have no recollection of playing softball in Cape! Do you think my memory is fading?
Definitely New Hamburg, the Robert brothers were dominate pitchers/players in the league. Pix three has Benny McDowell ’65 on the left.
The number 7 image I Believe is Kenny Scheeter of New Hamburg.
Images #2 & #9 are Tom Bremmerkamp; image #8 is Kenny
Scheeter. Think image #7 is Charlie Bertrand (not sure) and image #5 could be Larry Dannenmueller.
Number 5 is definitely Larry Dannenmueller. He married one of my dad’s cousins, Mary Jane Schwepker.
In picture #8 above the batter’s head, in the crowd, back row, I see Joanne (Schwepker) Hinkebein (Larry Dannenmueller’s sister in law, Kenny Lindsay, and Ralph Hinkebein.
In picture two, I believe the batter is Ray Craft, also appearing in pic three and pic nine. In picture three, I believe it is Benny McDowell, my classmate of ’64 and also Ray Craft. I played a lot of ball with both guys, whose talents far exceeded mine. Great pictures. Thanks again Ken.
The last picture looks like Lloyd (last name?) from First Federal. He was the Operations Manager for First Federal when I worked there in 1964.
I agree that #2 is Ray Craft. I went to school with him for a long time.
One more thing- I also agree that the opposing team is New Hamburg. They still have a really active and very good men’s baseball team each summer.
