Cleats and Cleavage dominate slo-pitch match Diego Espinosa

MOM by Mikaela Kuefler

On May 23, Double Tap played Tylor Pratt
Integratire Cleats and Cleavage at Vision
Park, during the Edson Mixed Slo-Pitch
league game, in 'D' division.
During the game, Double Tap had a
difficult time with ball control and made
some overthrows. They also had a hard
time at bat, enabling Integratire Cleats and
Cleavage to capitalize on their errors.
With the addition of poor playing
conditions from the slippery field and a
low sun, Cleats and Cleavage dominated
the game, resulting in a final score of 22- YOUR
