CCSO Wins Softball Tourney

On Saturday, the Collier County Sheriff's Office participated in the 13th Annual "Battle of the Badges" State's Attorney Office Softball Tournament to benefit Crime Stoppers of Southwest Florida.  The team has been very successful in the past, winning nine of the last 13 events.  The 13th proved to be the most rewarding. After experiencing a rare loss in 2014, Collier made its way through the bracket Saturday to face Charlotte County in the double-elimination style championship round.  Charlotte won the first game but would have to beat the Collier team twice to claim the title. But that wasn’t meant to be. In the bottom of the last inning, with two outs and the bases loaded, and trailing Charlotte 24-21, Robbie Bailey hit a walk-off grand slam to seal the victory 25-24!   Congrats to the team:  Manager Vic Vargas, Paul Aliseo, John Bell, Raul Perez, Joe Fiola, Michael Quigley, Pat Stubbe, Joe Valdez, Tom Wedlock, Robbie Bailey, Bill Lang and Mark Baker!  Great Job guys!
