The annual Wooden Bat Charity Tournament, held Aug. 26-28 at Lewis Park, was a big hit.
Eleven mixed slo-pitch teams played a four-game round robin, with the win/loss record determining seeding to an “A” division and a “B” division for the single knockout draw on Sunday. The two teams with the lowest points or highest runs against played in the Toilet Bowl Fun Game Sunday afternoon.
The “A” winner was the Brewers with S.I.A.A.B. taking second place. Berard’s Plumbing were the “B” winners with the Average Joe’s in second place.
The Elk’s Zombies were the Toilet Bowl recipients and Malcom In The Middle were second.
“A huge thank you goes to the umpires, Joan and the concession staff for feeding us all weekend, and of course, Ed, who managed the beer garden for the two days,” said tourney director Harry Lavoie. “I can’t forget Randy, who did the fields and helped with other chores as well.”
Lavoie said this year’s tournament was a huge success with some $1,500 raised toward the Green Light Laser Machine (for prostate cancer) at St. Joe’s Hospital.
“A great thank you to all the teams that were involved, as without you the tournament would not have been. We will back next year. See you then,” Lavoie said.
