Fastball at its finest at Fastballfest!!
Submitted By Andy Bader on Sunday, June 3, 2018
The 19th annual Mitchell Fastballfest ended on a great note Sunday with intense action in all five divisions.
A much-needed rain held off for the most part, but it did postpone the final game of the weekend, the Midget/Junior final between the hometown Mitchell squad and Wyoming.
In all other division finals, Exeter claimed two titles, the Mites (defeating Wilmot) and the Squirts (also over Wilmot). The Squirts, meanwhile, had to go two extra innings to eliminate a stubborn Fullarton #2 side.

Speaking of extra innings, three extra innings were needed as Listowel turned aside Exeter 14-12 to win the Pee Wee division, while in Bantam, DKMB exploded late to defeat Exeter 20-11 and win that division.
Mitchell's Pee Wee #2 team gave Listowel a scare in the semi-final, jumping out to a 6-0 lead and were tied 7-7 late before falling, 13-8.
Thanks to all the volunteers, umpires and organizers as well as the teams and fans for attending our tournament.
See you next year!
