Batter up for charity

The Fall Ball Charity Wooden Bat Tourney raised over $4000 for fire victims over the weekend.

The Fall Ball Charity Wooden Bat Tourney took place at Kinnaird Park over the weekend.

The event is organized by Castlegar Slo-Pitch and raised over $4000 to help benefit the Rock Creek and Westbridge fire victims.

Nine teams participated in the tournament, including one team of 12-15 year old boys.

After a weekend of fun it all came down to the playoffs on Sunday, where the Master Batters beat out the Maulers in the A final, and the Shooters beat out the Made Batters in the B final.
