Capt. Scott M. Bierwiler Coed Softball Tournament is April 25-26

The Fraternal Order of Police Lodge No. 164 and American People Against Cop Killers (APACK) will host the inaugural Capt. Scott M. Bierwiler Coed Softball Tournament on April 25-26 at the Jerome Brown Community Center in Brooksville.

The event, organized by Detective Jason Jernigan, whose immediate superior was Bierwiler, will benefit the Bierwiler family. The 42-year-old Hernando sheriff's captain died after an early morning collision with a sport utility vehicle driven by 16-year-old Andrew Frank Morris on Feb. 19.

"We didn't have the fliers up that long and we were already getting a ton of calls," Michelle Jernigan said. "The response so far has been outstanding, but the unfortunate part of that is we can only accommodate 20 teams"

The cost per 14-player team for the 20-team field is $200 and the deadline to register is April 15. The tournament is double-elimination and trophies will be given to the champion team.

Proceeds specifically go to the Capt. Scott M. Bierwiler Memorial Trust fund set up through Washington Mutual Bank.

For information or register, e-mail or call Jason Jernigan at (352) 232-2983 or Michelle Jernigan at (352) 232-6097.

So as the game headed toward the ninth, there was no doubt in Cash's mind that sending Cobb back to the mound was …
