    CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO – Sporting choices – young Jonathan Lynch has so many. Soccer? Yes. Baseball and basketball? Certainly.

    And fastpitch softball? Most definitely.

    The 19-year-old Lynch has played all four sports. He excelled in soccer, basketball and baseball in high school, and he recently finished his freshman year of baseball at Lyon College in Batesville, Arkansas.

    But he’s set aside this summer for a sport he professes to love – fastpitch softball. And if his performance in the 14-team, 29th Annual Kelso Klassic tournament, June 8-9, is any indication, he’s off to a great start.

    Lynch, who plays first base and outfield for Kelso Fastpitch, lit up some pretty good pitchers to the tune of a .667 batting average (8-for-12), four RBIs, one double, two triples and three stolen bases.

    And when the awards were handed out, Lynch carted off the Most Valuable Player trophy. And well-deserved said tournament media coordinator, Jerry Wolsey, who also plays for Kelso Fastpitch (12-4), winner of two tournaments.

    “He had an outstanding tournament. His stats were against some of the top pitchers in the tournament,” Wolsey said.
