Kostecka Farms harvest 35-Over trophy

Putting on a display of offensive power and very impressive defense, Kostecka Farms claimed the Cambridge-Isanti Men’s 35-Over Softball championship in two games against Team Fickle, winning 21-3 and 22-5. Game 2 began tightly, tied 4-4, then Jamie Thorson hit the first of this two three-run homers, and the Kosteckas quickly pulled away. The Farms, a combination of 2011 runner-up Big Al’s Team and fresh 35-year-olds, went 12-0 in the regular season and finished 16-1 overall after the Aug. 28 finals. That concluded a great August for Kostecka Farms which also placed 2nd in the Class B 35-Over State tourney in Sauk Rapids the first weekend.
