FARMINGTON —

Wes Perreault had his doubts — and rightly so. After all, it didn’t look good for his Heart Breakers when they fell behind three runs early to the Rochester Rogues in the championship game of the 29th annual Courier Cup Wiffleball Classic Sunday at the Farmington 500 Club.

In loving memory...

In 2016, the Courier Cup lost four members of its family with the passing of John Pratt, Ron Krawczyk, Ky Goslin and Chris "Carpy" Carpenter. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the their friends and families.

JOHN PRATT

John played in the tournament in the early 90's and then put a team together called the Know It Alls which was comprised of his son and friends.  John coached 3rd base in his signature Red Know It Alls shirt and blue jeans.  Sometimes he was more serious than the players themselves!

RON KRAWCZYK
Ron has been attending the tournament annually for years as the number one fan of his son Tommy's team; the Kraw Sox.  Folks looked forward to re-connecting with Ron each year at the field.  He always had a kind word to say to everyone and reminisced about his years of volunteer service to the 500!
KY GOSLIN
Ky was a coach and player of one of the charter teams in 1990, Ky's TownRunners,  which later became the Budmen.  Ky hasn't played in recent years but usually showed up on opening Saturday to share old stories with good friends and check out the wiffle ball action.
CHRIS "CARPY" CARPENTER
Carpy has been a long time friend of the tournament as well as long-time 500 volunteer.  Carpy umpired the tournament for many years but recently showed up with his signature lawn chair and always stood out with his more than colorful outfits! Recently, Codie Healey recalled a story where Carp was so impressed with Jayson Whitehouse's under the leg pitch that he called Codie out without the ball reaching the plate!
