Livermore Stampede finals set – Updated

Well, the Stampede is all done for 2009 and Archbishop Mitty is your champion. They won the title game 5-2 over Sheldon. Keilani Ricketts struck out 20 and hit a 3-run home run.

In the third-place game, Livermore won 2-1 on a squeeze bunt by Caitlin Taylor in the 10th inning. The bunt scored Katie Keller.

I’ll have more for ya on Monday. The story should be up on the main web site soon.
