The Circle Tap Fastpitch team went a disappointing 2-2(13-7) in the 8th
Annual Boys of Summer tournament this past weekend. There were some ups
and downs again this week with the bats and finished the weekend a bit
banged up. The Tappers were without Kyle VanAbel and Kevin Reichardt this
weekend and did not have Juan Potolicchio as he was with the Argentina
National team.
