COLUMBIA CITY ‚ÄĒ ‚ÄúThere‚Äôs a reason they play the game.‚ÄĚ
That old-time phrase proved true Tuesday night at Morsches Park in Columbia City‚Äôs Coaches Pitch Championship game.
Despite falling to the No. 1 seed, Trok & Krider, by an 11-4 score in the regular season, C.C. Veterinary Hospital (seeded third) pulled through for a 6-5 win to go home with the tournament title.
‚ÄúWe knew it would be a tough game,‚ÄĚ Head Coach Cory Patrick said. ‚ÄúWe‚Äôve seen them play and they‚Äôre pretty solid.‚ÄĚ
C.C. Vet came out swinging ‚ÄĒ putting up four runs in the top of the first inning with the first four batters.

‚ÄúWe‚Äôve always played better if we‚Äôve had a good start.‚ÄĚ
