On June 12, the Spring River Senior Softballers traveled to Jonesboro and squared off against the Gene Mitchell Gang.
It was once again a nip and tuck game all the way.
Great plays at first base by Dan Hedrington and several great plays by Pat "Scoop" LaFaye put a stop to several Jonesboro scoring chances.
Hedrington hit a triple and Joe Bonds hit a towering drive off the fence and then used his Texas jack rabbit speed for an inside-the-park homer.
Spring River wins this one 18-14.
In game two, the Trumann bats came alive.
They hit hard and often, and this time Spring River did not keep up.
Trumann wins 16-8.
Dan Hedrington had another good defensive outing at first base.
Charlie "Tuna" Morgan teamed up with "Scoop" LaFaye for another double play worthy of a replay.
Rick Comer had a triple in the game.
Herb Hess pitched both games.
