Standout softball player returns to diamond to win tournament

TERRE HAUTE — For once the softball rumor mill has produced some accurate information. The rumor that local softballer Ryan Dehart was ready to get back into the softball fray has proven to be true. This past weekend, Dehart’s Rentals emerged from the loser’s bracket in the Vincennes NSA Invitational to earn a tourney title.

Quiet most of the 2009 season on the statewide softball scene, Ryan Dehart put together a combination of local talent supplemented with several out of town stars to field a formidable squad. In addition to local talent such as Matt Mack, Darrin Chaney, Jason Frye, Ryan Welty and Chris Dehart, the team roster included softball luminaries such as Jerry Williams, Chris Firebaugh, Luke Baker, Joe Yeager and Brian “B.J.” Goins.

Finishing with a 5-1 tourney record, the Dehart Rentals team recorded wins over Tyler Evans 21-9, Wisman’s Crew 14-4, Halter’s Tree Service 17-4 and Old School 33-32 and 21-16. Their only loss was to the Old School team by a 23-8 count.

An even stronger Dehart Rental squad is scheduled to compete in the upcoming Q-95 all-nighter hosted at the Midwest Sports Complex in Indianapolis.

Sprinkled throughout the rosters of other participating teams were numerous players with local connections. They included Kyle Seaney, Joe Harbrueger, Ryan Carter, Gary Potter, Dan Potts, Chad Cress, Zach Morgan and Travis Sutton.

In a side note connected to the tourney discussed above, sympathy must be extended to local softballer Ryan Carter. Ryan opted to accept a ride to a from the tourney with yours truly and was subjected to approximately three hours of nonstop softball blather. I’m sure that’s the last time he’ll opt to save gas money and be subjected to an extended diatribe concerning the world of softball.
