Dave Weaver - Voice of Slo-Pitch
This past weekend was the 10th Annual O.R.C.S. Coed Three Pitch Tournament. I was happy to be part of the umpiring crew for a tournament that featured 17 teams, good food and non-alcoholic refreshments. The event was staffed by many friendly volunteers and the theme was sportsmanship and good camraderie.
