Elkland wins 67th Annual Durk Sherman Classic

The Elkland ESA team won a rain-shortened Durk Sherman Classic tournament on the Labour Day long weekend in Elkland, Pennsylvania. The most valuable player award went to Nick Mullins of ESA while the top pitcher was Gregg Garrity, also of ESA.

The host team was undefeated when heavy rain cancelled things. ESA had Gregg Garrity and Rob Schweyer pitching. New York Bombers finished second, with pitching from Sisko Sabate and Jay Surdyke. Third place went to Eline's Tax Service Bears who had Duane Weiler and Phil Zimmerman toeing the rubber.

The two Canadian teams in the eight team event were West Carleton Electric and Party Lake.

Party Lake finished fourth with a 3-3 record. They had Jordan Macdonald to pitch - and no one else. "Fu" had an impressive run, and also proposed to his girlfriend in the pitching circle of diamond one before their first game (she said yes).

West Carleton Electric ended with a 2-3 record. Brad Porter, Andy Barber and Jeff Barber pitched for the 'Trics. The Electric lost twice to Party Lake.

"She said yes" - Fu proposed to his girlfriend before Party Lake's first game against the NY Bombers.
