Fall All Star Classic & St. Jude Tournament

FALL ALL STAR CLASSIC
Congratulations to the Bob Gebel led National League for their dramatic come-from-behind 12-11 nail biting win on Monday night October 1st.
The Alan Finchley led Americans jumped to an early 7-0 lead but the Nationals stormed back and led 12-7 going into the bottom of the 9th.
The Americans counter-rally fell one run short and the game ended with the bases loaded.
