Submitted by Rick Cantor, Redwood Empire League President

On Saturday night, August 17th, the Redwood Empire Baseball League hosted an event celebrating their 30-year anniversary under the MSBL banner. They featured a barbecue, a home run derby and a highlight game between two of their top teams. Prior to the game, the six “legacy” members, who are players who played in the inaugural year and are still playing in 2019, threw out the first pitch and received plaques celebrating their REBL careers.

The recognized “legacy members” are Art Hernandez, Brad Silva, Paul Demattei, Don deCordova, Larry Hendrickson and Mike Zaccagna.

Brian Meyer, representing the 25-over National division Tigers, won the home run derby.
