Comets find a way to win
Just a few minutes after Velma-Alma junior Ty Richardson was hit by a pitch from Lindsey’s relief pitcher, Alec Richardson followed in his cousin’s footsteps to win third place in the Jake Leffler Wooden Bat Tournament Saturday.
It was a walk-off hit by pitch and the Comets (8-12) had pulled out the 5-4 win. Alec Richardson said that it was the best he’d ever felt when getting hit by the ball. The Comets had scored a run without getting the ball out of the infield to win the game in the bottom of the seventh inning. Coach Colt Allison was happy with his players’ patience at the plate.
