Editor’s notes: The roster features a good number of players from the Cal State Builders team that won the Boatnik title last week, including both MVP’s, Matt Barnes and Javy Fierro, along with all tourney award winners Dean Waltier, Gerald Pyle, and Dave Carlton (who homered in the title game). Paul Reyes is a member of the 2009 Rude Pac squad, but will not be at the Best of the West tournament. Add pitchers Doug Sleep and Ed Gaspar to the Builder’s 1-2 punch of Barnes and Pyle, and the Pac figures to have one of the deepest staffs in the tournament. And for good measure, Rudy’s squad will have Rob Penticoff, who figured prominently in the River City Rocker’s run to the Elite Eight at last year’s ISC II Tournament of Champions. He and Waltier will be keys to success on Sunday if they make a run and wind up facing the likes of a Jeremy Manley or other top pitching in the tournament.
