Another week filled with festivities, great wins and hard losses. The Colts played a double header against the Colorado Sox on June 30 and unfortunately lost both games, the first game score with the Sox winning 4-3 and the second game the Sox winning 13-7. The Colts came back strong on July 2nd with a double header against the Denver Cougars winning the first game 8-7 and the second 7-3. On July 3rd, the Colts played the inaugural softball game against the Arvada Fire Department! It was a great success and the Arvada Fire Department helped the Colts sell raffle tickets to help fundraise for the team! There were lots of great prizes raffled off like 4 tickets to a Colorado Rockies game of your choice with visit to the 850 KOA press box, a punching bag from sports authority, coffee and mugs from Starbucks coffee, free personal training from Prestige Fitness, Fuzzy’s Tacos and Rockabillies restaurant gift certificates, and many other great prizes all donated to the Colts! The Colts lost to the fire department 20-19 but still had a blast! The next game was on Friday against the Colorado Pirates, a double header sponsored by Prestige Fitness. The Colts split the games, falling to the Colorado Pirates in the first game 5-3 and coming back to win the second 2-1. The Colts played a double header against the Double Days on July 7, winning the first game 8-7 and the second 12-2.
Don’t forget to come support your Colts this week with the next home game, a double header vs. the Boulder Collegians on Friday July 12th starting at 5:45pm and the second game starting at 8pm! Also, on July 27th Arvada Beer Company is helping us raise money for the team by hosting “Beers for Bats” from 5-7pm with good food and great beer! It will be a season wrap up good time for all!
