Another suc­cess­ful Sports Days in the books for the Ag So­ci­ety. Thank you to all the vol­un­teers, teams and fans of slow­pitch who came into town for the week­end. What started out as a wet, wet Fri­day, turn­ing to sum­mer weather by Satur­day af­ter­noon and sun­burns on Sun­day, was fun for every­one. We had 14 teams sign up to play this week­end, a few less than our usual num­ber of 16 but I don’t think I know a per­son who isn’t dou­ble booked for ev­ery week­end of this sum­mer!

The re­sults were as fol­lows: in the D event, Brett Holowath’s team, the In­glo­ri­ous Bat­ters, came up against Darcy New­ton’s team, Rakes and Hoes. It was a good chal­lenge for both teams and Brett came away with the win. In the C event, the con­test was very close as the teams re­mained tied at 5 runs each un­til the bot­tom of the 6th in­ning, when the French Toast Mofia, Den­ver Hodges team, got 3 more runs on their side of the score sheet. The Schitt Kids came up to bat at the top of the 7th with strong bat­ters but French Toast’s de­fense proved to be too much for them as they did not get the runs needed to con­tinue the in­ning.

In the B fi­nal, Dirty Bunts, Evan Hamp­ton’s team, just couldn’t get any­thing go­ing for them. Their pitch­ing was off, their de­fense was fail­ing. A typ­i­cally strong team had sud­denly turned into the Bad News Bears. They were all in good spir­its as they re­al­ized that is just how it goes some­times and you have to take it in stride. Their co­me­dian short­stop in his “good luck” rub­ber boots was re­ally in fine form pro­vid­ing every­one with chuck­les which helped to soften the blow of a bad loss. The Master­bat­ters, Ty Mul­grove team, came away with the win and said they would be back next year be­cause they had such a fun time. Good to hear. The A Fi­nal was as ex­cit­ing as you could watch at a small town tour­ney. Two strong teams came up against each other, the Tun­nel Bee­tles from Big Val­ley, Erica Ste­fanik’s team, and Once Weres, Lo­gan Kiemele’s team, from Rum­sey, chal­lenged each other as the in­nings quickly went by. By the third in­ning, they were both at 3 runs each then each team strug­gled to get a run home. By the bot­tom of the 7th in­ning, the score re­mained tied and they then had to go into the ex­tra in­ning and hope­fully break the tie. Once Were’s were first up to bat and suc­ceeded in get­ting one run in be­fore suf­fer­ing their third out. Then Tun­nel Bee­tles came up to bat, and in spite of strong de­fense, they were able to get those nec­es­sary two runs home to win the game. It was a great way to end the week­end.

Next up on the Ag So­ci­ety’s cal­en­dar will be the S.T.A.R.S ride down at the Tol­man Bridge at the T.L. Bar ranch on Sun­day, Au­gust 11. If you haven’t planned to take part in the ride, make sure you take part in ei­ther the break­fast, lunch, or sup­per as each will be de­li­cious and con­trib­ute to the over­all fundrais­ing ef­forts of the com­mit­tee. There are posters up around town as well as lots of in­for­ma­tion on Rob Rich­mond’s face­book page.

Have a great week, every­one.
