! , pge 12 Wednesday, May 26, 1982 I I I Men's Softball I I I II The first annual Cloverdale Men's Softball Tour- nament was held this past weekend at the City Park. It was an eight team double elimination tour- nament. There were four teams from Cloverdale, Lengner & Sons, Chemwest, G & R Lumber Co. and Cloverdale Nursery, along with four from Santa Rosa. Friday night's games had Chemwest put- ring Lengner & Sons in the losers racket 2 to 0. G & R Lumber did the same to Cloverdale Nursery 8 to 4. In the third game Manage- ment Recruiters beat Rick's Liquor Warehouse 5 to 1. Saturday's games started with Crossroads Pub defeating Santa Rosa Rug Cleaners 6 to 5. The next two games were losers bracket games, which meant Cloverdale Nursery was eliminated by Leng- her & Sons 4 to 3 and Rick's Liquors sent Santa Rosa Rug home to stay 6 to 4. Chemwest then continued their winning ways best- ing G & R Lumber 11 to 3 and the Crossroads Pub kept pace with them squeezing by Management Recruiters 3 to 1. Lengner & Sons eliminated their second team, G & R Lumber 4 to 3 and Rick's Liquor Warehouse gained some revenge on Manage- merit Recruiters, eltrritnating them 3 to 2. The last game Saturday night was one of the most exciting as Chemwest and Crossroads PUB played to see who would win the winners bracket. Chemwest looked to be in control, )umping out to a 6 to 1 lead behind the hitting of Mettle, Carter, Potts and Moonev. But Crossroads Pub came back with 2 runs in the fifth and 3 in the sixth to send the game into extra innings. Finally in the tenth inning the Pub broke through with 3 hits and a wild pitch to win It. , Sunday morning had Rick s Li- quor Warehouse eliminating Leng- ner & Sons in a nine inning contest 3 to 2. Rick's and Chemwest then squared off for the right to meet the Pub in the championship game. On the first play of the game Jim Bald was involved in a collision at first and had to leave the game and Chemwest never seemed to get going again after that, getting their first hit in the sixth and getting beat 6 to 2. Rick's who were playing in their third game of the day, took on the Crossroads Pub team and looked like they were going to force another game, as they put together a 7 run rally, to take an 8 to 4 lead into the seventh. But, the Pub did what they had been doing through out the tournament, and with two outs in the last inning behind a grand slam home run by Bob Cotta won the game and the tournament 9to8. Trophies were presented to the first and second place teams, Crossroads Pub and Rick's Liquor Warehouse. All of the players on the Pub team recieved T shirts and the Most Valuable Player trophy went to Tino Gamber, the catcher for Crossroads Pub. Tino's name will be engraved on a perpetual trophy donated by the Pepsi Cola Co. Individual trophies were pre- sented to Steve Vesper of Lengner & Sons for the most home runs, Rick's Liquor's Mark Cooper for most RBI's and Grog Cleflsch for most stolen bases.
