Paul Guenther

Paul Guenther began his twenty-six year softball career in the early ‘60s playing in the park leagues of Berwyn and Cicero. Although he spent most of his career playing second base, he could play any infield position with skill. When he moved to the Sobies, he was a great asset because he could also play any outfield position. Paul was not the biggest or the strongest player, but he was blessed with excellent speed and sure hands, skills that any team would love to have. Besides his excellent defensive skills, he was also a great hitter who could drive in runs with singles and doubles. He helped the Sobies / American Rivets teams to two state titles, two Chicago Metro championships, three Chicago Park District titles, and the 1974 Windy City Chicago championship. They also won the Clarendon Park title five times, took four Andy Frain titles, and won three world championships. Paul and his wife, Bonnie, live in Las Vegas, Nevada with their daughter. 16
