Brady Visits Hall of Fame, wins WPH R48Pro #2
bradyhof3
Paul Brady stopped by the Hall of Fame before winning the second stop of the WPH Pro season. 

TUCSON - The Handball Hall of Fame got a visit from a sure-fire future member this past week.  Nine-time USHA national four-wall champion Paul Brady was in Tucson for the WPH R48 and spent some time taking in the memorabilia and sights on North Tucson Blvd.  While Paul liked seeing all the pictures and stories of the players he knew, he was even more intrigued by the players at the top of the list for titles won.  "I heard Platak trained like a mad man, climbing stairs," Paul noted when he saw the chiseled physique of fellow nine-time winner Platak.  While Brady missed a title chance due to in injury, Paul marveled that Platak's career got interrupted by WWII when Joe served overseas.

The other "stopper" for Paul was when he learned that Robert Ripley of the "Ripley's Believe it or not" fame was a fellow New York AC member and would travel the country by train to compete in National AAU Handball tournaments representing the NYAC as their best player.  "Imagine going cross country by train to play in a tournament..."

Nine-time USHA 4-Wall Singles Champion Paul Brady

TUCSON - Playing on his home court, Luis Moreno was certain to avoid a repeat of the Simple Green final against Brady he played just two weeks before.  The WPH R48 Prop Stop #2 final packed all the drama inside two entertaining games as the two stars battled in front of a packed gallery and rolling cameras.  Brady was again victorious, winning 15-13, 15-11.  

"He's an incredible player, what can I say?"  said Moreno after the match.  "You have to play nearly-if not, perfect when you play him.  You make one mistake, it's over."

The two players battled fiercely in the first, coming to a 13-13 tie before Moreno double faulted to give Brady the serve.  Brady finished the game with two quick points.  

In the second game, Moreno struggled while Brady was rolling, up 11-0 and 14-2 serving for the match.  At this point, Moreno dug in to go on one of his serial scoring runs, ripping 9 straight points and giving the gallery life only down 11-14.  Brady stayed the course to gain the side out and capture match point.
