Team Sea Star wins friendly softball marathon


To officially open the San Pedro Town Council’s (SPTC) upcoming Co-ed Softball Tournament, a marathon was held on Sunday, January 22nd. Three softball teams: Extreme, San Pedro High School (SPHS), and Sea Star entertained a crowd of softball fans at the Honorable Louis Sylvestre Complex. After countless matches, Sea Star emerged victorious as the champions of the marathon.
In the first round, Sea Star faced SPHS in a grueling match, taking the win 8-6. They advanced to the next round, where they played against Extreme, easily defeating them with a solid 11-1. The win came via the mercy rule in the third inning. With their second win, Sea Star were set for the championship game.
Team Extreme faced SPHS in the third round, losing 4-11. SPHS thus advanced to face Sea Star in the final championship game. All eyes were on the players, and the tension was at its peak. Regulation games were usually five innings within the competition, but the championship game saw four extra innings. Sea Star fought for the championship, beating SPHS with a narrow 8-7 game. Congratulations to the team!
Organizers Hector Alamilla (Sports Councilor for SPTC), Kent Gabourel (Sports Coordinator for SPTC), and Earl Sutherland appreciate the teams’ participation, and look forward to hosting the Co-ed Softball Tournament. A total of seven teams have signed up, and the games will commence on Sunday, January 29th. Fans are asked to come out and support their favorite team.
