TWO TEAMS TIED FOR FIRST IN WOMEN’S SOFTBALL LEAGUE

In the women’s softball league, two teams are currently tied for first place: Team Extreme and Wrong Way, both sitting at 11-3.

Marfa (10-4) is one game back followed by La Casita (8-6), Diamond Girls (4-10) and Rangra Rangers (0-14).

There are three more league games remaining in the regular season before the postseason tourney, which will be held next week.

“This league has done a lot for the community,” Jim Ruth said. “We have had all kinds of people coming to watch the event and it continues to bring in new people every day.”

 

OLD TIMERS GET FIRST HOMEROF SEASON

The Old Timers haven’t won a game in two weeks as the teams’ numbers are still down with only nine players.

The Old Timers most recent losses were a 26-16 blowout followed by a nail biter 17-16 decision in extra innings.

In the extra inning game, the Old Timers picked up their first homerun of the season when Jason Vick went deep to left field as the ball sailed approximately 360 feet.
