Softball Scene: Saline City tourney changes format

The Saline City Labor Day Invitational, one of the area’s longest running softball tournaments, is now taking teams. Tournament director Ryan Persinger noted that a change of format has been scheduled for this year’s tourney. Saturday and Sunday, a co-ed tourney has been scheduled, with a men’s round robin finishing out the weekend Monday.

When asked how long the tourney has been held, nobody seems to able to come up with an answer. I seem to remember playing in the tourney in the 1980s. I also recall the tourney director for a number of years was Clay City’s J.R. Cooprider.

The tourney is part of Saline City’s Labor Day festivities and enjoys great community support. I would urge all interested parties to stop in and join the fun.

The 2007 tourney champions was the DeHart’s Rental co-ed squad.

Teams wishing to participate can contact Persinger at (812) 605-9443.

In tourney action this past weekend, the Copper Bar team traveled to Indianapolis for the NSA MSP Class “E” state tournament. Unfortunately, the Copper Bar team’s first opponent was the eventual tourney champion, Psycho Asylum. Dropping a tough 8-7 opening round game to Psycho Asylum, Copper Bar proceeded to their second game and were eliminated from tourney play.

I might note an error in last week’s column. In reporting the results from NSA MSP Class “C” state finals, I failed to credit DeHart’s Rentals with a 34-18 win over Pay Source. As a result, DeHart’s Rentals finished with a 1-2 tourney mark, not the 0-2 as reported.

DeHart’s Rentals, as well as the Clabber Girl squad, are scheduled to participate in the NSA MSP Class “C” regional tourney in Indianapolis this weekend. Local players on the DeHart’s Rentals squad include Josh Hall, Ryan DeHart, Chris DeHart, Jeff Biggs and Eric Barnaby.
