39th Annual Fastpitch Tournament


Fri, Jul 25th, 2014
Posted in Whalan Sports

“Strike! Ball! You’re out! Safe!” were often heard at Whalan’s Fastpitch Tournament, on July 4, 5 and 6. We had three beautiful days, probably the best weather in our 39 years of hosting the tournament. That, along with some good games, good food and lots of good fellowship made for a very enjoyable weekend.

The championship game between Jonny’s, who remained unbeaten during the tournament, and Grumpy’s of Ackley, Iowa was won by Grumpy’s. Because it was double elimination and Jonny’s had not been beaten, another game then had to be played. Grumpy’s, who were hitting really well, won that one also, 4-0 and were awarded the championship trophy. Jonny’s won second place, Harley Davidson, who were last year’s champs, placed third and Images on Metal took fourth.

Winners of the drawings for cash prizes were: Phyllis Chiglo, Caledonia $100, Eric Overland, Lanesboro $50, Dennis Nepstad, Byron $50, Michele Helgerson $50, Scott McElmury, Whalan $25 and Jerry Demaray, Rochester $25.

All profits from the tournament, which is our biggest fundraiser of the year, go to Whalan Lutheran Church. We want to thank everyone who helped in any way to make the tournament successful.

Next year will be our 40th annual tournament and we hope to make it special and we hope to see you there.
