Carson City, Nev
. – The Casa Trejo Bombers of Yucaipa, Calif., outscored its foes 41-to-12, had four players hit over .400, and had a .381 team batting average with 10-of-12 batters smashing the ball over the .300 mark.

As anyone familiar with men’s fastpitch softball knows, such stratospheric numbers lead to lots of wins.

And win the Bombers did in claiming the Silver Medal at the North American Fastpitch Association (NAFA) Masters West World Series, age 40-plus Gold Division with a 4-1 record in Carson City, Nevada, Sept. 14-16.

Manager Ralph Roybal credited his players – a blend of local talent, and players from Arizona and Mexico – for peaking at the right time and bringing the second-place trophy home to sponsor Ruth Trejo Garcia and her Casa Trejo restaurant on County Line Road in Yucaipa.

This is the second consecutive year that the Bombers have placed runner-up in a NAFA Masters men’s World Series that features top-rated teams from the United States and Canada.

“As a player and coach, as long as I see our guys playing hard, giving 100-percent and having fun, that’s all I can ask,” said Roybal. “We have put the Bombers on the map in Masters fastpitch.”
