Helmer and Wegman combine for 24 points
July 5, New York City - The Stadium Power Tour took center stage in New York City Thursday night. A big time slugfest before the Met’s game at Citi FIeld was the perfect pre-game show for big apple sports fans.
Team Easton continued their impressive run this season. Brett “The Hitman” Helmer and Brian Wegman combined for 24 points.
Wegman led off with 12 points, with several upper deck blasts in Citi Field.
Helmer ended the show with a dozen points also. Team Easton is off to early lead, but Helmer is quick to point out, it’s early and any one’s game on the always tough Stadium Power Tour. “There is no let down at Team Easton, any week, another team can step it up and tighten it up the race, so we need to stay focused, and we will.“
Dustin Roberts from hitting for Team Gordie had a solid day at the plate with 10 points. Dustin and teammate Neil Heglund continue to help “The Old Scout“ Gordie Heagle, with his medical costs. Look for an upcoming feature on Gordie on “Softball 360 “ TV.
