First Annual Holly-"Wood" Bat Tournament
30A Champions
January 13-15, 2001

By National Staff


The 30A championship game was close until the seventh inning when the Dodgers came from behind with seven runs to break it open. The uprising featured hits by Sal Sanchez, Larry Ramirez, Jerry Durham and Eric Swanson. The Las Vegas also contributed, committing four errors in the fateful frame. Durham's single, steal and a sacrifice fly by Brad Milner, plated the last run in the 8th.

The two teams battled on even terms through the first six. Greg Shepard singled in a run in the first inning for Las Vegas, which the Dodgers matched with an unearned run in the bottom of the second on four walks. Vegas took a 4-1 lead, scoring three times in the third. Singles by Dan Doby and Ernest Baulela, a double by Shepard, two walks and Andy Owen's sacrifice fly accounted for the three runs. The Dodgers battled back to make it 4-3 in the third inning. Ramirez' single started the action. Durham forced him at second, then stole second base and scored on Milner's RBI single. Milner later scored on Pat Bair's base hit. It stood that way until the Dodgers exploded in the seventh. Winning pitcher Larry Sanchez was chosen as the Game's Most Valuable Player.
