SOFTBALL SCENE: Valley squad wins Bedford tourney, series titles

TERRE HAUTE — This past weekend the Crawlworks/All American Auto Repairs squad ventured to Bedford to participate in another leg of the Tanel 360/Dudley Challenge Series. In doing so, Crawlworks/All American Auto Repair not only captured the tourney title but also annexed the season-long series title.

As a result, the team won merchandise, a paid berth to the Amateur Softball Association men’s slowpitch Class D state tournament and a berth to the nationals at Salem, Va., over the Labor Day weekend.

In winning the Bedford tourney, Crawlworks/All American Auto Repair reeled off four consecutive wins. After opening tourney play with a 16-3 drubbing of Scared Hitless, the local team defeated Lacy’s Snow Removal 12-3, Yoder Excavating 15-4 and Outdor Session 11-10.

The final victory was an especially gratifying one in that it came as a result of Kelly Chesshir’s bottom-of-the-seventh walkoff hit. The Bedford tourney makred the return of Kelly Chesshir to action following a prolonged stint on the disabled list.

Playing for Crawlworks/All American Auto Repair this season are Randy Winkler, Shane Chesshir, D.J. Chesshir, Kelly Chesshir, Eric Smith, Ryan Smith, Chad Wilguess, Jason Hinton, Dano Armstrong, Dave Wood, Derrick Pierce, Ron Whistler, Jared Lumsdon, Chris Green, Jeff Long, Dusty Batchelor, Mike Medearis, Jason DeSanto and Chris Wilson.

Congratulations are in order for the local travel squad.

• Not quite — Another local travel team, Outkast, didn’t fare as well when it traveled to Bloomington for the prestigious Bloomington Invitational. After opening tourney play with a 16-6 loss to eventual tourney winner Silverbacks, Outkast jumped out to an 8-0 lead before falling to Hagerman 13-11.

A player who continues to perform for the Outkast squad is 50-year-old Tommy “Sarge” Slaughter. Despite his 50 years, Slaughter is hitting .623 for the season and leads the team with 18 home runs. Good job, Tommy, and keep proving that experience counts.
