Pit Stop claims softball league title

The Boulder City Parks and Recreation Department’s men’s fall softball season wrapped up with a slam bang tournament Nov. 17 and 19. Everything from walks to walk off home runs and a couple of grand slams in between happened during the games.

In the end, regular-season runner-up Pit Stop claimed the tournament crown over Duetto in the final, 14-9. Duetto was a surprise winner in the loser’s bracket final over regular-season champ Time to Mash, using timely hitting by Mike Jones and defensive gems by Garrett Calloway to score the upset.

In the final, Duetto continued took a 5-2 lead after the second inning, but Pit Stop held strong in the third holding Duetto scoreless and by the end of the fourth inning built a 10-6 lead on the way to the victory.

Softball play will resume for men’s and coed leagues in the spring.
