Hyrum Invitational Llittle League Tournament 1979
In 1979, at the end of the year, Hyrum sponsored a little league tournament. I think this is the only year Hyrum sponsored a tournament. We actually sponsored two tournaments, one for 11-12 year olds, and another for 9 and 10 year olds. Both tournies where double elimination. It went without a hitch, until we got rain on Saturday for the championship game of the 9-10 year old age, and we had to come back on Monday and finish it up. The other thing is Hyrum had two teams in both leagues. The Hyrum teams represented the Blacksmith Fork league which included Wellsville, Paradise, Hyrum and Nibley. Kamran Preece pitched for the Hyrum team two. Rod Stuart and Devin Fackrell for team one. Team one took the championship without losing.
