Page B-4 - Mason County Journal - Thursday, July 24, 2014 By EMILY HANSON emily@masoncounty com The fifth inning made all the difference for Brothers United. In its adult co-ed so,ball game against Camco on July 17, Brothers United entered the bot- tom of the fifth inning down 6-3. Five runs later, Brothers United led 8-6 -- the even- tual final score of the Cascade League game at Mason County Recreation Area. 'We played awesome, like a real softball team tonight," manager Louis Rodriguez said. "Our season wasn't very good at the beginning because we had a bunch of young players. In the end, they came along and tonight really showed they can play." The two teams were neck-in- neck for most of the game, until Camco pulled ahead with a 4-3 lead in the fourth inning. Camco pushed that lead to 6-3, but Brothers United stormed back to take the lead 8-6. In the filch inning, Tanner Lurid started the inning with an RBI single to bring in lead-off batter Jordan Adams.

FLY ON THE SIDELINE t i Take a chance uring an ! adult co- ed softball game last week, I heard a player say that adults. didn't have many recreational oppor- tunities in Mason County. While we may not have as many opportunities as neighboring counties, I think we have more available here than most people realize. The adult co-ed soft- ball leagues are the most visible of the available sports for adults. The Shelton Parks and Recreation Department has two leagues, Olympic and Cascade, with at least six teams per league. From what I've seen, the teams have a minimum of 10 players each. These games range from competitive, with both teams putting forth their bests efforts, to just fun between friends.
