July 1, here at Rancho Buena Vista Little League, but not before the
RBV 9-11 team defeated Vista National and won it all with a
In the sixth inning, with RBVLL down 7-5, Jackson Bell
(who homer’d early in the game) stepped to the plate with one out and
two men on base and hit a triple to tie the game. The next two
batters--River Scott and Zach Schuler--were intentionally walked, loading t
he bases for Nicholas Voelpel, who “took one for his team”!Hit by a pitch,
Nicholas brought in the winning run for RBV!
Nicholas will no doubt wear that pitch forever.
Also, a big shout-out to the other RBV All Star teams- Juniors, 10-12’s, and
the 8-10’s who also played solid baseball in the tournament. The RBV 10-12’s
and the 8-10’s each took second overall in their divisions. Thank you to the
field staff, RBVLL Board of Directors, District 70 representatives, volunteers,
and the many fans for supporting this outstanding tournament.
