The Grand Puba Boy's softball team were the only undefeated team going into the Championship game of the Tomaso's sponsored Wood Bat Beer League Championships in Willow Creek this weekend. Blue Planet Pet shop were the challenging team in the Championship game with a 4-1 record. The score was tied 1-1 in the 5th inning when a torrential downpour sent everyone scrambling to their rigs to get out of town. And one quick player for the Puba's team took the trophy and ran! So, by imminent domain, the Puba's hold onto the coveted trophy. (Last years champs have to hand make, art wise, their predecessor trophy. The Hey Juan Barnstormers were last years champs and had the trophy on display.) I get a feeling the Puba team will not give it up quietly. Tomaso's and the Green Sox ended up tied for 3rd with the Barnstormers and Breakers tied for 5th in the 10 team tournament.
The Samoa Athletic Club organized this event for Tomaso's and the theme was "Don't drink and drive!" Most of the players stayed at Camp Kimtu or close by. Tomaso's supplied water and salsa on ice in each dugout and Bien Padre donated chips. There were hundreds of people at the park over the weekend. 98% of the 120 participants had a great time. I would say that was pretty good.
