LOL at Peter Saltzman, articles like this are usually written after a 5-10 minute phone call with the coach, just be glad that a newspaper actually wrote and article about a girls 9U softball team and enjoy the win

Not mentioned is Natalie Saltzman who propelled her team with timely hitting and base running (and a .500 batting average for the series.)
