MOJO softball wins Mothers Day tournament in Sacramento

Excels at fast-pitch competition in 14-16 age group

by Jeb Bing

The Pleasanton based MOJO softball club rode five consecutive victories to the championship of the AWF Tournament at Freedom Park in Sacramento this past weekend.

Team MOJO, coached by Mario Martinez of Pleasanton, is just beginning its season but already appears in championship form by its performance at this All World Fastpitch Association (AWF) event for ages 14 to 16.

The championship round was highlighted by strong pitching by Dani Hammer and a three-run home run by Jaclyn Long.

MOJO, its coaches point out, is not an acronym. It is an arbitrary and fanciful name of common slang meaning, generally, confident spirit.
