The Dimona Mean Judeans opened their 2006 Israel Softball Association season with an 8-2 win over Penticon. Dimona pitcher Yaron was too much for the Penticon bats. He struck out six, while allowing only two runs, both scored by Howie Hirsch and batted in by David Fleightman. All eight Dimona runs were brought in with two outs and against 17-year-old Penticon pitcher Golan Halley. Dimona's top five hitters did all the damage. Amihai (three runs batted in), Ben Hai and Akhazia (two RBIs) each went 2-for-3 and Yigal drove in two runs. Amihai made the defensive play of the game at shortstop, chasing down a lazy looper to make a football-style, over-theshoulder catch. Dimona women rout Beit Shemesh-The Dimona Lady Judeans beat the Beit Shemesh Fireballs 20-6 in the 2006 ISA women's league opener. New Dimona pitcher Dina kept the Beit Shemesh bats in check and walked none, backed by fine defense from Carmiah at shortstop. Vashti led the way at bat going 2-for-3 with a triple.
