The IUEC Local 17 softball team was bounced on Friday from the annual Cleveland Building Trades Labor Day Softball Tournament held at Parma’s James Day Park.
The team lost their first game to the IBEW 38 B team by a score of 14 to 4. In the consolation game they beat a scrappy Pipefitters 120 team 20 to 8. When they met the Laborers Local 1099 team as the sun was setting and the full moon rising, they ran out of gas. The 1099 team out hit and out ran them to a 20 to 10 victory.
The tournament is sponsored every year by the building trades on the Thursday before Labor Day and runs through Saturday nights’ championship for the A and B flights.
