The Eudora Amateur Baseball and Softball Association hosted its annual T-ball Tournament the weekend of June 17-18.
After sizzling in the heat for two games, the Lightning Bolts were crowned the 2011 EABSA T-ball Champions. The Lightning Bolts beat the Ducks in a four inning battle to win the championship.
Seven teams from Eudora participated in the tournament. All the kids in the tournament were 5 to 6 years old.
“I think the parents had as much fun as the kids” according to proud parent Carrie Fewins.

We wanted to update you on a couple of notes about the tragic accident that occurred this weekend on K-10.
We were alerted that Deborah Basel commonly goes by Ann (Breithaupt) Basel. Ann was injured in the crash that occurred on Saturday afternoon. We have not received any word as to an update on her condition.
A remembrance fund for Cainan Shutt has been set up by Jeff Pierce, President of the Eudora Amateur Baseball and Softball Association and the EABSA Board of Directors. Cainan was the 5-year-old boy who passed away a short time after the accident. Cainan was to play T-ball this year on an EABSA team.
