Big Crowd Watchs Minden Face Tigers In Softball Opener
The Minden Lady Whippets softball team opened its 2012 season on Thursday under ideal weather conditions at Augie Nelson Park.
Minden hosted the Class B Hastings Tigers in an early season contest. Hastings was sparked to the victory with a big first and fifth inning propelling them to a 12-3 victory over the Whippets.
Callie Pinkham started on the hill for the Whippets in the top of first inning when Hastings was able to string together a couple of hits followed by a key two-out hit to score two runs that put Hastings ahead 3-0 before the Tigers tacked on another run to go ahead 4-0.
