We have reason to celebrate – the Sand Springs Coach Pitch team, Pistols, are the USSSA State Champions! Winning 13-1, the Pistols fought hard to victory on June 18th. The Pistols are made up of 11 team members and several amazing coaches including their head coach Brad Crain, who is also the owner of Sandlot Sno Balls with his wife Melanie Crain. The couple happily gifted the team snowcones for their Tee Ball win!
The Pistols began in 2017 as a small Sand Springs league ball team, and they found that they had quite the talented group! Over a couple of years the group of 11 boys continued to grow in talent and they began to play in tournaments. This year on the weekend of June 18, a sizzling weekend, the boys played their heart out and reaped the rewards of all of their hard work – WINNING STATE!
So next time you head on over to Sandlot Sno Balls or see one of our local Pistol players walking the town, make sure you give them a shout for all of their hard work and victory! We are so proud of you Pistols!
