Softball Scene: Tough week for Valley teams in tournament play

TERRE HAUTE — The past two weekends have been especially tough for Wabash Valley teams participating in ASA state tournaments.

Of the nine teams entered in three different state tournaments, only one managed a .500 record.

In the ASA men’s fastpitch Class C state tournament July 28-29 at Elkhart, the Elkins Brothers Tree Service team finished with a 0-2 mark. It dropped its opening-round game to Kokomo CFD by a 4-1 count and followed that with a 7-0 loss to Wabash.

Last weekend didn’t prove much more successful for local squads as five teams traveled to Avon for the ASA men’s slowpitch Class D south state tournament and three ventured to Evansville for the ASA men’s slowpitch Class C state finals.

At Avon, all five locals squads ended up with identical 1-2 records. Terre Haute Rx Shop, River Bats, Maurizio’s Pizza, Matco Tools/Chop Shop and Robinson Heating and Cooling settled for an eighth-place tie among the 20 participants. Stafford Realty of Bloomington won the title with a 5-0 mark.

Ballyhoo Tavern, competing at Evansville, managed the only .500 mark for Terre Haute area teams by finishing 2-2. Unfortunately for Ballyhoo, its opening game was against eventual undefeated winner C&C; Construction. Following the opening 11-2 loss. Ballyhoo reeled off wins in the losers’ bracket over R&G; Construction (8-7) and Scores (14-12). Ballyhoo was eliminated in another close contest by Dirty Dawgs 15-14.

Other Class C participants, Clabber Girl and Matco Tools, went 1-2 and 0-2 respectively.

The results mentioned above were certainly a disappointment for several teams which anticipated making a much better showing in ASA state tournament play.

Teams interested in participating in the Terre Haute Parks and Recreation Department fall leagues should contact the Torner Center immediately. The deadline is rapidly approaching.

Get-well wishes go to Ryan Carter, who recently underwent ACL surgery.

Congrats to Chop Shop for its eight-inning 15-14 win over Floor-It in the Brazil YMCA playoffs.
