The 2016 JHF tournament raised $26,200, an all time record for the Jake Hodge Foundation

This brings our 4 year total to $75,550. Pretty amazing considering our small communities.

An estimated crowd of 400 watched friday nights games. Emma Talley threw out first pitch to Jessi Sigler and the 2016 scholarship winners were recognized.

Friday nights games were all close with the 10U West Kentucky Wildcats defeating CoEd Chaos 4-2. The Knuckleheads and Kents Crew would both have walk-off win in extra innings.
Saturday had a full slate of games. A brief rain delay would not dampen the enthusiasm.  The Squad upset Team 11 and last years champ McCrew to get into the playoffs. Team Lara, the Rally Squirrels, Bone Collectors, 10U Wildcats would join the squad with 2-0 records. The Co-Ed Chaos from Crittenden County would be a wildcard.

 

The playoffs were mostly bdono pitches to bone collectors gordon duganlow-outs except the championship with Team Lara vs Rally Squirrels. Oliver Parker hit two home runs and Team Lara got out to a 4-1 lead. The Rally Squirrels would live up to the name as they tied the game with back to back to back home runs (Allen DIxon, Dono McGregor, and Brandon Sigler). Joey East would hit a homer in the top of the 6th to put the Squirrels in front for good. Rally Squirrels were the champs and were 5-0 for the weekend.

 

Champs 2

 

Dono McGregor was the MVP. For the tournament, he batted .706 with three home runs. McGregor pitched gems against the Fredonia Boys, Crittenden Free Press, Bone Collectors, 10U Wildcats, and Team Lara.
