Action in the Richardson Pioneer Fastball League’s Pattison Ag Conference Tuesday at the RE/MAX Diamond in Wadena saw the Rosebud Royals top the Fishing Lake Cubs 7-0.
The winning pitcher was James Holowaty, while Scott Comfort and Joey Leach both of the Royals had home runs.
But, the game was secondary Tuesday to the BBQ Fundraiser the Wadena Learn to Play team put on for Tessa Anderson, a four-year old girl from Wadena going through Leukaemia treatments. Tessa brother Taitum plays on the Learn to Play Wildcats. The BBQ was a huge success with over 500 burgers/smokies sold, raffle prizes, and homemade bracelets made and sold by Tessa's cousin Syndey selling out.
If you were unable to make the event and want to donate contact any Rosebud Royal, search ‘Sweet Little Tessa Anderson’ on Facebook, or contact Insurance Matters in Wadena.
With the huge crowd behind the home team, the Royals shot out of the gate with Dylan Murias hitting a single, a Carson Scheschuck triple and Scott Comfort following it up with a two-run Home Run. Joey Leach kept the attack rolling in the second with a solo homer in 2. Cubs had chances with runners in a few innings but pitchers James Holowaty and Koby Faubert held the Cubs scoreless. The game was shot by Access Communications on a tape delay. Stay tuned for air dates.
