It wasn’t easy, but the Grass Stains squeaked out a 16-15 victory over the Rookies in the ‘A’ division final of the Williams Lake Slo-Pitch League Overlander Pub Fundraiser Tournament Sunday.
On the ‘B’ side of the draw it was the Brew Jays, climbing back through the losers side of the draw to earn revenge on the team that sent them there, the Vigilantes, in a 17-7 final victory.
Sixteen teams competed at the tournament, which WLSPL president Linda Barbondy said was a complete success.
“The tournament was very good,” she said. “The weather was close to perfect and everything worked out really well. We made just over $2,000 for the league which will go toward money to pay for concrete for our two new sets of bleachers up there.”
Third place in the ‘A’ division went to the Rowdies, while third in the ‘B’ division was the Wild Chickens.
For their efforts, the Grass Stains took home $1,000 cash, along with a team prize pack including shirts, hoodies hats and bags. In second, the Rookies claimed $700 and a team prize pack.
The Brew Jays won $500 and a prize pack, and the Vigilantes were awarded $250 and a prize pack.
The winner of Saturday night’s home run derby was Grass Stains player Dave Raincock.
