 Talent Spread Out Among Girls Major, Minor League Teams

April 2, 2008 - The 2007 girls minor league championship came down to dramatics in the extreme when the best game of the season was played between the Diamond Crushers and the Little Sluggers. The Diamond Crushers edged the Little Sluggers 15-14 to force a second game, and then claimed the championship.

Tori McDonald, in two championship games, went 6-for-7 with three runs scored and had nine RBIs. She struck out nine batters in the final game. She has moved on to the girls major league program, where she’ll join forces with Larissa Shields, Bonnie Huckeby, Cassandra Cox, Kimberly Steinmetz and others on the Knightstown Fire Department Firehawks.
