Ten area churches participated in the Copper Country Slow Pitch Church Softball League this summer.

Thirteen regular season games were followed by 2-weeks of single elimination playoffs.

It was a “friendly fire” match as No. 1 seed Evangel 1 (11-2 overall) met No. 2 seed Evangel 2 (9-3-1) in the championship game on Tuesday.

Evangel 1 maintained the lead and was awarded the league’s perpetual Bergstedt Trophy.

All churches are invited to participate. Contact League Commissioner Aaron Green, aarongreen50@sbcglobal.net for details.

Games are Tuesday evenings, May-July at the Tech Fields on Sharon Ave.
