Sylvan Lake Slo-Pitch season wraps up with year-end tournament

The Sylvan Lake Slo-Pitch League came to an end for the season with a year-end tournament held at Four Seasons Park over the weekend.

The Sylvan Lake Slo-Pitch League came to an end for the season with a year-end tournament held at Four Seasons Park over the weekend.

The Hounds team won first place in the A Division, with the Shottie Bodies winning second place.

Half Cut earned first place for the B division, with the Banditos placing second.

The Sylvan Lake Slo-Pitch League had 14 teams playing in the tournament.

Even though these teams play at home, first base player for Team Runaway Kelly Komarniski said they all look forward to the finals at the end of the season.

“It’s a way to celebrate the end of a good season, and everybody can kind of just let loose and have some fun,” she said.

The teams don’t play major competitive games, Komarniski said, as time spent on the diamond is meant to be fun. To that end, the final tournament is held to mark the end of the season on a happy note.

“We’re really just here to have fun,” Komarniski said. “Everybody comes just to hit balls and have a good time.”
