Slo-pitch tournament winds up with winners

Sunday, August 25th was the final count-down for teams in the annual Slow-pitch tournament in Saugeen Shores.

For Liv-A-Little Foundation however it was a count-up as the Men’s and Ladies’ Leagues presented a cheque for $6,100.  The money was raised through the sale of ‘Sock it to Cystinosis’ purple socks that the the players sported throughout the tournament.

When it came to final play, some teams were more evenly matched than others.

The Ladies ‘A’ division saw the Pete’s lined up against the Riveters but, unfortunately, the Riveters couldn’t match up to the strength of the Pete’s hitters who brought home the trophy.
