ANGELS 'SLAM' ANOTHER TROPHY on the SHELF.....
The 'Springfield Slam' baseball tournament was just one of the many attractions during 'Springfield Days' last weekend. Amidst all the excitement in town, Springfield's three baseball fields were also kept busy with games going on throughout the two days.
The Nehawka Angels' first game, originally scheduled for 9:00 on Saturday morning, was moved back, once again, thanks to rain the night before. Games were also cut from a one-hour, fifty-minute time limit to an hour and twenty minutes, due to no field lights.
Facing off against the 'Springfield 12's', the Angels took the visitor's spot on the scoreboard, showing an 8-2 win over the home team. With only a few minutes to catch their breath, the team was back on the field for game two and their second win of the day.
Sunday found the team's first game moved back four hours for the first pitch, but the Nehawka guys caught yet another win, pushing them into the championship face-off later in the day.
Parents, grandparents and friends pooled together, brought in pizza and watermelon, then everyone relaxed in the cool, shady breeze, watching two other teams vie for their spot in the championship game.
Around 6pm, the Angels and Springfield 12's took the field, battling for the Championship trophy. Powerful bats and smooth fielding helped the Angels fly home with the first-place title, once again.
