Because of low lighting conditions in the pitching arenas we have very few photos to display, I am receiving a few from other pitchers that as time permits I will put into a photo album of the tournament. We were fortunate to have a couple of professional photographers around that have been kind enough to allow use of a few of their photos also.
Thank you for asking about the event and your kind comments are appreciated.
