The Team 7 (Hackney/Richards) won their 1st game 12-11, their 2nd game 15-14 and their 3rd game 8-7. Close games were the norm for this team. Team 2 (Garges/Shallcross) put an end to that in the championship series with a convincing 16-5 win. With both teams now competing from the loser's bracket and down 7-4 in the 7th inning, Team 2 scores 2 and places the tying runner on 3rd. With 2 outs, a hard hit shot to left looks as if it's gone, but gets caught at the fence. Team 7 holds on 7-6. Congrats to Team 7 on the win and Team 2 on the runner-up finish. Both managing tandems are invited to return for the next 1-pitch outing if it is their choice to do so. Members of team 7 will receive tournament hoodies or jackets. Managers will receive championship plaques.

My guess is 90% of tournament players looked outside yesterday morning and said to themselves, "No way we get this tournament in". Some drove by the field and said to themselves, "We've got a better chance of hitting the Powerball lottery than playing today". Not me. I looked outside and said to myself, Once this rains stops, Timmy will get the field playable in less than an hour. That he did. Thank you, Tim, on a job well done. Without his efforts and the efforts of Steph Garret, John Erb, Chris Hackney, Greg Thompson, and Bob Garges, the tournament doesn't happen. Thank you, guys! Another 'thank you' goes out to Rich Edmundson for spending his Labor Sunday so we can enjoy tourney pix.
