Fall Ball Classic coming up

Citizen Staff Writer

Jose J. Escobar started a Little League tournament six years ago to
honor his son, Joey, who died in 2002 at age 6. Joey’s Fall Ball
Classic, which helps raise money for special needs children in Tucson,
will be held again this weekend.

There’s something refreshing about watching kids play sports for the
joy of the game. You can see what I mean if you check out the two-day
baseball and softball tournament that begins at 8 p.m. Saturday at
Field of Dreams, South Kino Boulevard and 36th Street.

Sunday’s feature game at 9 a.m. features Challenger Little League,
which includes special needs players who played at the Little League
World Series last month in Williamsport, Pa..

Little League players also are urged to attend a clinic at 7 p.m.
Thursday at Field of Dreams, hosted by Pima Community College baseball
coach Edgar Soto and Pima softball coach Armando Quiroz.



Our Digital Archive

This blog page archives the entire digital archive of the Tucson Citizen from 1993 to 2009. It was gleaned from a database that was not intended to be displayed as a public web archive. Therefore, some of the text in some stories displays a little oddly. Also, this database did not contain any links to photos, so though the archive contains numerous captions for photos, there are no links to any of those photos.

There are more than 230,000 articles in this archive.

In TucsonCitizen.com Morgue, Part 1, we have preserved the Tucson Citizen newspaper's web archive from 2006 to 2009. To view those stories (all of which are duplicated here) go to Morgue Part 1
