ANAHEIM – Someone had to step up to the plate, so Robert Hernandez did.

In 2007, he saw the alarming decline of men’s fastpitch teams in Southern California. Something had to be done to reverse the trend. So he took on a most ambitious project – helping to start a new league.

This new league, the Southern California Independent Fastpitch League (SCIFL), was a success from the beginning. Up to 16 teams compete, along with an age 40-older Masters Division.

“Doing a startup was tough,” said Hernandez, who became the league’s president, master league supervisor, and tournament director. “But the first year went well with very few hiccups.”

His ambitions for the league soon went higher.

LAS VEGAS – The dust has all settled, the last out has been called, champions have been crowned and the 2014 edition of the Las Vegas Road Trip is in the books. Hopefully everyone had some fun in Sin City and left with a little extra cash in your pocket on the trip back home.

This year’s tournament had almost perfect weather; no rain forecasted but high clouds to bring the heat down in the afternoon. The wind did kick in hard on Sunday morning, making fly balls interesting to say the least.

Thirty-seven teams were entered into the tournament; however, one dropped out late Friday evening as only four players arrived to play-unfortunately making it too late to adjust the schedule.

The competition in all three levels was fantastic…To read game reports of the three division championships visit the SCIFL website and read Las Vegas Road Trip VII
