Arguably the two favorites in the 16-team Men’s Division had no problem getting through their first games Thursday night during the first night of the 47th annual Rotary Club of Kenosha West Softball Tournament at Lincoln Park.
Tirabassi cruised past ECI, 19-6, to remain in tonight’s winner’s bracket. Though Blue and the Brothers is technically the defending Men’s champion and not entered this year, Tirabassi is essentially made up of the same players.
Meanwhile, another power rolled to an even bigger win Thursday to move into tonight’s winner’s bracket.
Shenanigans/Dunn Sports/WTP, which won the Men’s title four straight times from 2014-17, pummeled Swedes, 31-2.
Two more first-round games and four winner’s bracket games will comprise the Men’s Division schedule in the double-elimination tournament’s second night of action tonight at Lincoln Park.
Additionally, the Women’s and Coed divisions will begin play tonight.
In the Women’s Division, two-time defending champion Squirrels faces the Burlington Beavers on Lincoln No. 4 at 7:30 p.m.
