Chunkers rule the roost in 2009 Bean Bag Baseball competition (click image to enlarge).

When their backs seemed against the wall, the Caddo Council on Aging Chunkers roared back to win a pair of games and the gold medal in the NW La. District Senior Olympics Bean Bag Baseball competition held during Opening Ceremonies and Health Expo at Bossier Civic Center..

The Chuckers, who survived the losers’ bracket to reach the final round, beat the Airport Park Giants, 21-14 to force a showdown for the title. Then the Chuckers pulled away with a big six-run fourth inning in the gold medal game to beat the Giants, 25-16, for the title.

Live Oak Retirement Center’s domination of the Retirement Communities Division ended at the hands of Summerfield Estates which won the gold medal game 32-21 over the Live Oak Rookies. Since the division opened in 2005, Live Oak teams had won the gold medal each year. This year Live Oak had enough participation to form two teams. The No. 1 team was eliminated in prelims, but the new kids, the Rookies, made it to the finals.

Summerfield Estates claimed ta 6-4 lead in the final match after an inning of play and never looked back.
