Soft­ball re­vival in Win­ter­ton

The Compass - - FRONT PAGE -

A Trin­ity Bay community that was once a hot­bed for soft­ball ac­tion is at­tempt­ing to re­vive the sport, and early ef­forts are prov­ing pos­i­tive. Some 100-plus peo­ple, in­clud­ing youth and adults, have signed up for the Trin­ity South Soft­ball League in Win­ter­ton. A cer­e­mony to launch the new league last week was both mov­ing and ex­cit­ing, with “Mr. Soft­ball” Bill Ja­cobs throw­ing out the cer­e­mo­nial first pitch. There was also a trib­ute to the late Kevin Pow­ers, a soft­ball en­thu­si­ast who died trag­i­cally in 1975.
