"It was a good tournament and we all look forward to playing in it every year." says 1st baseman Dave Johnson "It was great to for some of us to finally win it and great for guys like Nick (Lavezzi) and the Skubic' s (Curt and Craig) to win it again."

Other top hitter for the champions were Bob Guajardo .750 with 3 HR and 7 RBI, Nick Natyshok .615, Curt Skubic .647 with 4 RBI, Kevin Callahan powered 2 homeruns and drove in 9 runs.

In the scalding heat Lavezzi Plumbing squared off with the Rock N Rebels and came away with a big 11-1 win to assure them a spot in the tournament's championship game against whichever team that would win the loser's bracket to oppose them in the finals. Craig Skubic belted 2 HR's while driving in four runs as Brent Dite chipped in with a 4-4 effort at the plate and both Lavezzi and Guajardo added three hits efforts during this victory for Lavezzi Plumbing.

Callahan and Natyshok each chipped in with two hits each as Caniglia and Weber both had homeruns in this 11-1 victory.
Lavezzi Plumbing came into this twenty team tournament expecting a challenge from many tough teams. Manager Brian Mayfield said, "I am glad that we added two impact players to our ball club in Torry Caniglia, who brings hustle, great defense and a desire to be great and Nick Natyshok, who is a veteran player and has contributed for many top teams over the last couple of years. Both players showed their immediate impact helping us win the Carbon Hill tournament. I think we will be tough to beat now, our depth is greatly improved and i expect a good showing in the upcoming D NIT in Joliet."
