TAG Softball had some bright spots in our weekend but, we still lost too many close ones. Walt Farris was named to the All American team. He had a great game at short and only made 2 outs all weekend. Rook had another stellar performance at the plate and was 7 for 7.
Don’t forget game time is Eastern Standard time.
The address for the field :
Knox county sportspark
8050 Oak Ridge Highway
We play Doc Martin at 11:30 and Lewisville OG at 1:00. There should be 8 teams in 65AAA. Pool play will make a difference when we get to double elimination. TRY to be at the park at least an hour early so that we can hit a few before the first game.

Great weekend against the toughest competition we faced this year. A great performance by everyone.
Robert Rook led the team in hitting, .947 (18 for 19) and was clearly our MVP.

Walt Farris hit .714, played a great second base and was All tournament.
Rich D’Angelo hit .706, was outstanding at short and was All tournament.
James Beard hit .692 and made some great catches in right field and was All tournament.
Ellis Mayfield made a few unbelievable catches in right center and was All tournament.
Dudley Cook did a great job of pitching, was 7 for 9 in bracket play and was All tournament.
The rest of the team played well for the weekend and contributed to the win.
TAG Softball played well but lost some very close games.
Dave Foster was All Tournament. He was 17 for 19 for an on base average of .895.
Herbie was All Tournament and was 13 for 16 for an on base average of .813. Welcome back Herbie.
Rags was 13 for 16 for an on base average of .813 with to key home runs.
Walt did a great job at short and also came on in relief pitching. He also was 12 for 15 for an on base average of .800.
Joe Parton was 12 for 16 for an on base average of .750.
We played well at times and other times we didn’t do so well.
The highlight of the tournament was Dowell Bales performance at the plate.
He went 16 for 16 with a crushing hit down the first base line that he beat out for his 16th hit.
Our other standout hitting came from Dave Foster who was 12 for 15, an on base average of .800
and no stranger to being one of our top hitters Robert Rook who was 12 for 16 an on base average of .750.
Rags was the only one to put it over the 325 fence.
It was great to see Herbie back and he hit one on the warning track at the 325 foot fence (I think he is back).
The scores were:
Pill and Pill 9 16
CH Engineering 15 10
Steel Creek 17 28
Hamel 19 7
Jersey Masters 29 15
