With only three weeks left in the Sedona Summer Softball League the playoff picture has begun to take shape in what has been a competitive season.

Amy Combs of the Rotary summer softball team gets a base hit Thursday, July 15.A Day in the West led by team captain Pedro Ortega Sr. has jumped out to a 14-0 start in the first seven weeks of action.

ith a 12-0 victory over Sedona Sunrise on Thursday, July 15, A Day in the West clinched the No. 1 seed heading into the playoffs which are scheduled to begin Thursday, Aug. 5.

Mitch Wheeler of Sedona Sunrise looks to get a base hit during a game in the Sedona Summer Softball League.“We’ve played well up until this point and I think we can continue that play as long as we all stay focused,” Ortega said.

In second place, or eight games back from A Day in the West, is The Other Team, which sports an impressive 6-8 record overall this summer.

Three years ago, The Other Team was comprised of a bunch of nobodies who couldn’t seem to keep their gloves down when it really mattered but lately, these boys have shown how much they’ve improved.

A Day in the West team captain Pedro Ortega Sr. throws a runner out at first base. A Day in the West is a perfect 14-0 this season.Tied with The Other Team for second place is Rotary who is also 6-8 on the season.

If the season ended today, The Other Team would hold the tiebreaker with a 3-2 record against Rotary this season.

In every league there has to be a last place team and the Sedona Sunrise fits the bill, unfortunately.

To give the 2-12 Sedona Sunrise credit, the team is never short of players every Thursday night, and usually not short of the trash talking either, but it’s always in good fun and adds a certain color to the weekly grind.
