Big Daddy D’s named the champions at the Colorado Crush slow pitch softball tournament in Castle Rock, CO on 28 September 2013. The team went undefeated and out dueled 10 Jerks and a Squirt in the championship to take the title. The tournament had a good turn out on the late fall day that turned out to be a gorgeous for softball with nothing but sunshine and temperatures reaching the upper 60’s. With 10 Jerks and a Squirt finishing second, they earned a trip to the championship by beating SoCo Softball Club by one run who finished third and SoCo had knocked out Fort Carson who finished in the fourth spot.
This was the last tournament of the year for SoCo Sport Inc’s inaugural 2013 slow pitch softball season. We would like to thank all the teams that competed this year and hope to see everyone out next year in 2014. The schedule for 2014 will be out in mid December and we hope to see a good group of teams compete in the SoCo Sport Series Seven in 2014.
