BEAUMONT, Calif. – The Hitmen of the Morongo Indian Reservation displayed all the skills of a good fastpitch team – speed, power, defense and pitching – to claim the 39th Annual Beaumont Coyotes 4th of July Men’s Fastpitch Tournament at Valdivia Field late Sunday night.

Led by the pitching of Vince Nelson, a 26-year-old right-hander from the La Jolla and Rincon Indian reservations in San Diego County, the Hitmen went 4-0, culminating with a 13-1 victory over the Corona Chicanos in the championship.

Leading up to the championship, the Hitmen beat the Pala Braves 4-3, Colton Dirtbags 2-0, and Those Guys of Long Beach 6-0.

BEAUMONT, Calif. – The Beaumont Coyotes overcame a 1-0 deficit by scoring four runs in the fourth inning to take a 4-2 victory over the Corona Chicanos on Friday in the 37th Annual Coyotes Men’s Fastpitch Tournament at Valdivia Field in Beaumont.

Gabriel Valdivia got things started in the fourth with a leadoff single, stole second and third, and then scored on an error to even the score. The Coyotes – whose bats were in a slumber through the first three innings – broke loose for three more runs, led by Aaron Morris and George Valdivia’s run-scoring singles to nail down the win.
