Kimball coach Joe Hernandez said he appreciates having good local competition in advance of the teams’ respective league seasons.
Last year, Kimball (6-1) beat both West (3-2) and Tracy (1-2) during the first three-way series.
“They all made the playoffs last year and hopefully will make the playoffs this year and will contend for all three league championships,” Hernandez said. “To come out here with the split is still pretty good.”
The mini-tournament is a benefit event with no admission. However, Tracy coach Greg Smith said $250 in donations was collected for the National Breast Cancer Foundation.

Tracy senior pitcher Tayler Misfeldt has wanted to beat the Kimball Jaguars since her sophomore year in 2011, when Kimball beat Tracy in their first matchup. The Jaguars again beat the Bulldogs twice in 2012.

“This is our first year coming out with a win and it’s such an accomplishment,”
Misfeldt said. “I’m so proud of my team and I’m happy with how we played.”
