Tahoe Smoke returns home to host tourney
The Tahoe Smoke has spent most of its summer weekends on the road at tournaments all over Nevada and California.
This weekend, however, the under-16 fast-pitch club softball team gets to stay in town and host its own tourney.
The second annual Fast Pitch in the Pines will be held Saturday and Sunday and will feature six teams from Northern Nevada and California.
“Talent-wise this will be a very competitive event,” Smoke manager Rich Barna said.
The East Bay Quakes, California Sacrifice, Lassen Lasers, Chico Starz and the Sierra Storm will all come to town.
The Smoke is slated for three games on Saturday, taking on the Sacrifice at 10:45 a.m. before facine the Quakes at 12:30 p.m., and ending the first day of competition against the Storm.
The tournament will be a round robin, single elimination format and the second day’s schedule will be determined after the conclusion of Saturday’s action.
All the games will be held at either the Field of Dreams at South Tahoe High School or at Tahoe Valley Elementary School. All of the Smoke’s games will be at the Field of Dreams.
