Softball season winds up in Winnemucca

The Winnemucca softball season finished up at the Sports 

Complex last weekend with seven teams battling it out for the bragging rights of 2019.

Jim Lindeman was the coach of the Sons of Pitches team at the event.

“As an adult in this town softball gives me a chance to do something other than drink and gamble and get into trouble," Lindeman said. "It is competitive and I am a competitive person, so I enjoy it. I play both men’s and coed leagues. "The difference between the two is that the men’s competition is a lot more fierce, because there are more power hitters coming at you. The ball flies at you a lot faster and more often. There are a lot of good female players in coed as well, and the rules are a little different, so it is fun also.”

The games started at 7:30 p.m. on Friday night when it was still 90 degrees outside and went on until the winners were crowned. 

Hanson Street, who finished second in the regular season standings at 12-2, won the 'A' bracket tournament.

Pulaskis and Barbells won the 'B' bracket tournament.

Dina Leigh Grasmick was playing in her first season of softball in Winnemucca.

“I like how active it is, it has been fun to just get out of the house," Grasmick said. "I am hoping that it will cool down like usual around 8 tonight. I have had fun this year and I hope to play again next year.”
