Mora Memorial Tournament
The Tony Mora Sr. Memorial Men’s Softball tournament really is a family affair.
The Mora family just hosted the 26th annual tournament with Tony Mora Jr. spearheading the softball tournament and Judy Lindquist taking charge of the concessions. With family and community in mind, there was a hat passed around during Saturday’s home run contest. There was $400 raised and the money went to the Rolando Adame’s family. The Mora’s yearly scholarship for $1,000 went to Cade Wallace.
On the field, Los Banditos won the lower division and 4 The Fallen won the upper division.
The All-Stars upper division: 4 The Fallen (Kenny JObe – MVP, Scott Stanger and Brandon Williams), Charlies Crew ( EZ Padron – MVP, Troy Stephens and Chad Lee), Desert Dawgs (Ben Balderas and Adrian Valdez), Team Crush (Anthony Pabrarez), Dirt Bags (Kyle Thomas). All-Stars lower division: Los Banditos (Justin Medrano – MVP, Johnny Martinez and Tyrone Gonzalez), Fockers (John Lindquist – MVP, Gabriel Pernada and Jared Reyes), Hooligans (Scott House, Carlos Padron), Tony’s (Rayce Joseph), Family (Anthony Stephens).
The Most Inspirational went to Frank Mora, Sr. and Rolando Adame. Accepting the awards were Frank Mora, Jr. (son) and Cheney Adame (cousin).
The concession stand, which used to be Tomasita Mora’s job, now falls under the hands of Lindquist. She is the ninth of 14 siblings. Lindquist has 11 sisters and two brothers, which means there is plenty of family to help sell the $3.50 fajitas.
