Whitecourt team wins fall slowpitch tourney

A slowpitch tournament on the Sept. 9 weekend in Slave Lake had to contend with rain (Saturday) and strong wind (Sunday), but apart from that it was great!
That’s the news from organizer Ryan Ricard.
“We had eight teams,” he said. “We played all the games.”
Ricard was hoping for more teams, but those who participated had lots of fun, and two of them go home champions, with a whole winter to savour it.
“A local team, Pitch Slapped, were the ‘B’ winners,” Ricard says. “A Whitecourt team won the ‘A’.
That team had the somewhat unusual name of ‘Tulo Window Tulo Wall,’ which Ricard says is not the name of a construction company.
Two of the participating teams were from Slave Lake – the others from elsewhere.
That closes out the slowpitch action for 2017, as far as we know. Certainly as far as Ricard is concerned.
“I’m done for the winter,” he says.
