Team Easton’s Brett “ the hitman” Helmer was the top Long Haul Bomber with 12 points using his 2013 Easton Brett Helmer Signature Softball Bat.
Helmer set the pace early, sending homers sailing into the right field bleachers. “ I felt good, balls were flying and I love Petco Park. This morning I hit a hole in one at a charity golf event for the Wounded Warriors and won a trip to Europe, but I donated the trip right back to the charity, so tonight was the capper to an awesome day” .
Helmer’s Easton team mate Brain Wegman finished with 9 points, putting Easton out front early in the battle for the manufactures cup.
Denny Crine of Team Miken threw out the ceremonial first pitch before the Padre’s-Marlin’s game. Crine had a solid day at the plate ending up with 8 points and sent multiple “show bombs “ into the upper deck.
