For the 4th year in a row, the Tapey Beercone Open Game was held at Trailerville Acres and a wonderful day of Tapey Beercone action was had. This year saw three seperate games held over one amazing day of Tapey Beercone, which saw the largest turnout to date, including local players and others who made the trek from as far away as the Oregon Cascade League.
Congratulations to Team Reverend for their complete tournament shut out victory, in which the team was never scored on through the entire tournament and were shutout themselves until #5 Jeff hit a home run in the finals which proved to be the tournament winning run. Hats off to runner up Team Hammer, who dominated the round-robin stage of the event before being shutout in the finals.
Praise is also due to Aidan “The Gambler” for being named MVP of the Tournament after playing stellar defense throughout and swatting an inning ending triple which would have been a stand up home run if not for his team reaching the inning limit.
The event also saw some great uniforms, with Dave “The Loadstar” beating out Taylor “High Socks” for Best Dressed.
A special award was also granted to #6 Eton for the Best Star Wars Theme with his construction and use of a Kylo Ren Lightsaber Bat.
Lastly, a shout out to Kelly “The Coach” for winning the first running of the Kumite held in advance of the main tournament. A special thanks to all five participants who bravely took part in the most intense Tapey Beercone event held to date, and an event which will be returning in future years.
