Fossils take the field at St. George

Sarchett hits clean-up for Old Timers

     Senior-class athletes have taken center stage recently for their final home games in local prep sports, but here’s a story about a true senior athlete—a softball fossil, none the less.

     Ketchum’s Bob Sarchett, 66, competed for a western Washington slow-pitch softball team in the eight-team Over 65 Division of the World Senior Games softball tournament Oct. 4-8 at St. George, Utah.

     His team was called “The Fossils,” and Sarchett was the clean-up hitter in the lineup.

     “The Fossils” did very well, placing third overall with a 5-2 record. They beat teams from Florida, Winnipeg (Manitoba) Canada, Victoria (B.C.) Canada and Hawaii. First baseman Sarchett was particularly effective with the bat, hitting 20-for-25 (.800) with 12 RBI.
