    PUEBLO, CO – Some will claim men’s fastpitch softball is well past its prime. That it’s a sport wobbling and reeling on the ropes like an old, worn out boxer awaiting the knockout punch.

    The Santos, along with their late father Joe, have been playing this sport collectively for better than 150 years.
