CHIPPEWAS OF RAMA FIRST NATION – Denny Benson and his teammates were forced to put in some extra work en route to their national championship.
Actually, it was a lot of extra work.
Benson is a member of the Toronto Batmen, who captured a Canadian crown on Sept. 3. Technically, it was already Sept. 4 when the Batmen registered a 1-0 victory over Newfoundland’s Galway Hitmen, courtesy off a 15th inning inside-the-park home run, in the Canadian Men’s and Master Men’s Fastpitch Championships.
The national tourney was held in Surrey, B.C.
The Batmen and Hitmen had also met in the championship final of the men’s category at the 2022 nationals, which the Newfoundland squad had hosted. The Hitmen won last year’s title thanks to a 4-1 triumph in the gold-medal contest.
