The “Come and Pitch” Tournament was held at Watson Lake on Saturday, and hosted by the Mile Hi Horseshoe Club.
The pitchers in the Class A category began with just a 2.84 average between the competitors, so things were expected to be close. Robert Chubinsky of Surprise, edged out Arlin Bates from Sun City West, as both ended with a 5-1 record on the day, but Chubinsky took first place by outscoring Bates 105-99 in ringers.
Class B came down to the wire as well, but it was Chino Valley’s Hal Handelman capturing first place ahead of John Barney.
Larry Garcia made the trip up north pay off by taking first place in the Class C bracket. Terry Sloan from Prescott Valley took home second.
Opening pitching is available to anyone at the Watson Lake courts this Thursday at 6pm.
