League Showcase at Leslie Beach
Leslie Beach welcomed the Richardson Pioneer Men’s Fastball league with the full bleachers and fences lined with golf carts Friday night. The Richardson Pioneer Fastball League held a showcase game for the Regional Park at Fishing Lake on the newly developed “Ron’s Field of Dreams”. Players were impressed with the Field condition and excellent setting. The game featured players from the Rosebud Royals, Fishing Lake Cubs, Foam Lake Merchants, Wynyard Blues, Kelvington Comets and Wadena Wildcats with a close 7-6 7-inning battle. The Wynyard/Foam Lake/Fishing Lake team jumped out to a 7-run lead early but the Wadena/Rosebud/Kelvington team battled back with a 2 run home run by Dylon Murias, and a Grand Slam by Scott Comfort. Cubs pitcher, Corbit Sabit held the comeback off pitching 7 innings for the 7-6 victory in the first ever Men’s Fastball game on the new field.
Event organizers look forward to more games on Ron’s Field of Dreams with talks of more RPFL league games, another showcase game like Friday’s or even a tournament next summer. Catchers Helmet Video highlights are available on Scott Comfort’s Youtube Channel with a GoPro helmet cam worn by catchers Scott Comfort (Royals) and Ryan Kayseas (Cubs).
