Softball Scene: Crawlworks’ hard work to host tournament pays off

Recent Softball Scene columns have been devoted to efforts to raise funds for various causes. The opening segment of this week’s column will stick with that theme.

This past weekend the Crawlworks men’s team hosted an invitational tourney to raise money for their trip to Salem, Va. for the ASA men’s Class “D” national tournament. As with efforts of this type, they usually rely heavily on the work of several team members. This event was no different.

Contributing to the successful tournament were the following Crawlworks players: Chris Nidiffer, D.J. Chesshir, Shane Chesshir, Randy Winkler, Eric Smith, Bill Knierim, Mike Mederis and Nate Hall. Also contributing to the success was the Northside Community United Methodist church who made their softball facility available.

I have an affinity for persons making an effort such as the Crawlworks team, the 180 Energy Drink team or the UPS organization (as discussed in last week’s column) to put on a successful softball tourney. In part, due to the fact I spent 20 years working with Larry Wilson and others on the old Glenn Civic Center diamonds. I know what it takes and it’s not always easy. A big congrats and thanks to all involved.

The tournament was won by the G.O.A.T. Softball Club. In winning the G.O.A.T. Softball Club recorded wins over the G.E. 14-5, Mill Dawgs 23-1, Goose Neck 18-9 and Expos 13-8. The Expos handed the G.O.A.T. Softball Club it’s only loss in a 12-11 contest highlighted by Travis Chesshir’s walk-off two-run home run.

Playing for the winning squad was Clay Huffman, Tyler Akers, Ryan Hayes, Ryan Nicholson, Kevin Hicks, Eric Tresler, Derrick Pierce, Shane Chesshir, Andy Jones, David Kingery, Brad Pierce, Chris Dehart and Darren Buck.
