Thanks to all who supported the 6th Annual Law Enforcement Desert Shootout Tournament on May 10th and 11th at the Golden Eagle Complex in Sparks, NV.

This year’s Home Run Derby crown was taken by Sparks own Brock Kyler who established himself as one of the top hitters on the West Coast.
The 2019 player party was held at Game On Sports Bar in the Nugget. They provided plenty of hospitality and beverages.
Round Robin play didn’t have too many surprises as teams entered into the A and B Flights. Reloaded, Controlled Chaos, DEA, Stanislaus and Connection all looked sharp.
The A Flight bracket showed a solid Stanislaus team push through the loser’s bracket into the championship game. DEA vs Stanislaus was an entertaining game that featured great talent and sportsmanship.
Connection eventually proved too much for Stanislaus as their offense could not be stopped.
The B Flight championship featured a tough Reloaded team in the winner’s bracket and a resilient Controlled Chaos squad. For the second year in a row, the B Flight championship game included a huge comeback. Chaos was geared to force the “if” game until the veteran Reloaded team mounded the best come-from-behind win of the day.
