December 20, 2022 Games at Stagecoach Park
Can the 4th seed win again? NO! THE STREAK HAS BEEN BROKEN!
Tom Martinez's Team 3 has run the table for the first time ever.
In the first round games, 2nd seed Team 3 (Gershkoff) edged 3rd seed Team 2 (Miller) for a shot at the one-day tournament championship. Same with 1st seed Team 3 (Martinez), who came back in the bottom of the 7th down 4 runs for a 14-13 win over the scrappy 4th seed Team 5 (Chandler). In the championship match, Team 1 didn't wake up offensively until the 5th inning, handing Team 3 the game 13-5.
The 4th seed curse has been broken.
Fresh made pizza from John Gonzales was fantastic. He outdid himself with new toppings as well as the original stand-bys. A potent variety of drinks was also included to the delight of the crowd.
Thanks to our volunteer umpires: Nick Basta, Ron Bryan, Pat Steele and Doug Tomlinson
