Well, it wasn't the easiest tournament to get through and, unfortunately, some divisions had to be canceled, but it was nice to get some early spring baseball in this past weekend. The tournament committee would like to thank all of the teams that participated this weekend and to congratulate all of the Champions and Finalists on some solid baseball!
