Softball scene: Summer leagues come to close

TERRE HAUTE — The local IBEW team traveled to Champaign, Ill. to participate in the Illinois IBEW state tournament. While finishing with a 1-2 tourney mark in the 18-team affair might appear to be less than successful, the squad was composed largely of younger, untested players. Team organizer Paul Rupska hopes to be able to build on the effort and make a future run at the tourney title.

The IBEW team opened tourney play by dropping a game to the host team, Champaign, by a 19-3 score. In game two, they defeated Decatur 6-4, before being eliminated by Collinsville in a 16-4 loss.

Participating for the local team were: Rupska, Billy Meash, Bryan Nacke, Jacob Francis, Jonathan Fox, John Montgomery, John Bunch, Ed Eble, Robert Capastani and Brandon Robertson.

Final results unavailable.

n A truly unique event recently took place during a local adult league game. Josh Hall, a veteran of some note, took a called third strike in a slow pitch contest. Josh, who rarely takes a pitch, vowed to swing at the first pitch for the remainder of his career.

n With the close of another summer season, so too comes the end of another summer of softball reporting. The final Softball Scene column will cover the results of the fall-league action and tourney results from September’s ASA Novice Co-ed Tourney.

As per usual, I would like to thank the staff of the Tribune-Star and local softballers for making this column possible.
