ON DECK: Busy weekend
Its common knowledge Memorial Day weekend is huge for sports.
Locally is no exception.
If softball is your thing, just head down to any softball field in town. There will be a softball game happening on it. The Denny Donnelly Memorial Tournament is going on, bringing in teams from across the country, though mainly Arizona and California. That runs today and Sunday, with a very late title game Sunday night. Or maybe Monday morning.
If you're more into golf, head on down to Desert Hills. The Yuma Men's City Golf Championship, running today through Monday, is a virtual who's who of Yuma golf. Plus storylines to rival a PGA tournament: A ton of young players looking to crash the party, led by YC's Grady Bourguignon, who's in a foursome with three current YC teammates and other rising stars like Kody Fiser, Max Coffeen and Joey Pickels — none of whom are of drinking age yet; Bill Bort, who has competed in every city championship; or new dad Gabe Plaza going after his third title.
Pull up a chair. It's going to be a heck of a weekend.
