Price legion ends season

The Price American Legion baseball team headed to Vernal to play in a mini-state tournament on Friday. They lost their opener 11 to two against Roosevelt and then came back and defeated Vernal 13 to six.

It was a chance to head to Salt Lake to play in the American Legion play-offs. With only three teams tying for a single spot, the mini-tournament organizer decided that the team that had the least points scored against them in the three game play off would be the team to advance.

On Friday Price took on Roosevelt.

Levi Graff took the mound and was throwing well, but the teams struggled after a week off from competition and made some errors that quickly put them in a hole. Graff exited the game as Joe Lopez came on in relief. In the end Price was forced to accept defeat.

Price took on Vernal on Saturday. The team had their game faces back on and were solid behind pitcher Nicco Velasquez. Zack Rodreguez took over the pitching duties in the third and finished up the win.

Tyson Dameron, Johnathan Garcia, Max Misner and JD Grasso hit the ball well to drive the Price offense in the game against Vernal.

Roosevelt then lost a close game to Vernal and when the points scored were tallied, Price missed moving on by a run. It was Vernal that got the nod. For coach Willie Ellington it was a heartbreaking outcome to a great season.

"I can't say enough about how good the boys played. We beat Vernal six times this season and they get to go to the play-offs. Our kids played well this weekend, especially Saturday. It was a good year for us, we ended up with a better record than last year and I am really seeing some big improvements in the kids."
