Bullhead City Results (March 3-5, 2020)

Bullhead City held their 15th Annual Senior Softball Tournament right before softball shutdowns in March and Manager Billy Gaynor of Top Gun Diamond 80 AAA reported that Gary Bottenfield, Dave Buck and Rico Coronado all had great individual hitting tournaments and  both Dave and Rico did a great job of pitching into 30 mph winds. Unfortunately, there were only younger, Major and Major plus teams in the tournament, but the Diamonds played all their games close to the last out. Of course, Rico celebrated anyway on the dance floor of Don Laughlin’s Casino and Resort. Question: is he still there dancing???

Al’s Sporting Goods in Santee played in the 70 Division with Bob Ramming, Ron DeVincenzo, and Jim Dionne from our league finishing in 2nd place. Rammy did a great job pitching with very few walks despite the 30 mph winds and made several rally-killing fielding plays. Ronnie got his usual share of big hits. And in the bottom of the open inning of the semi-final game with his team down 4 runs and 3 men on base and a 3-2 count, Jimmy D. hit a liner to the fence for an inside the park, game-tying home run. The team then scored one more run for the victory but were clearly over-matched in the final game by a home run hitting Las Vegas team.
