The Saved By Second Base softball tournament at Memorial Park in Grass Valley last Saturday turned out to be very successful, even though some people came through the park earlly in the day and robbed them of food and some of the raffle prizes.

Dr. Melisa Agness, a Radiologist and owner of Insight Immaging says some of the food was thrown on the ground which made them really mad, especially since the sale of food and raffle tickets is part of the fundraiser to provide no cost mammograms to women who otherwise could not afford them.
Then, Melisa Missler of M3Mall who volunteered to do publicity for the event, got the word out on Facebook that the tournament had been robbed, and there was a terrific outpouring of support from the community.
All the Baseball teams also had a great time and said they would be back next year. the Saved by Second Base softball tournament cleared about $5-thousand dollars last year. All the checks are not in yet for this year but Agness estimates they will clear between $7 and $10- thousand dollars, all to go to funding mammograms for women who otherwise could not afford them.
