The Krewe of Elders and Live Oak captured gold medals in Bean Bag Baseball, as former winners reasserted themselves in the event.
The Krewe, which was displaced in 2009 by the Caddo COA Chunkers, staged a comeback to win the open division and Live Oak, which won four consecutive titles before bowing in 2009 to Summerfield Estates, won the Retirement Communities division.
It took two victories over the Silver Sluggers for the Krewe of Elders to win. Coming through the loser’s bracket, KOE beat the Sluggers 32-30 to force a final game. KOE never trailed in the showdown, beating the Sluggers by 31-24. The Sometimers (nee Better Than Best) claimed the bronze medal in the open bracket.
From 2005 through 2008, Live Oak had things their way before Summerfield Estates claimed the gold in 2009. But on showdown day at Bossier Civic Center, Live Oak won easily over Summerfield to reclaim its hold on gold.
