ADF-E shortstop, Mike Zelinsky, scoops up a blistering grounder during a softball matchup with DTRA, July 2 at Graves Field.

Despite sweltering heat, humidity and approaching thunderstorms, undefeated Defense Threat Reduction Agency kept bats connecting and runners rounding the bags through four innings, to trounce Aerospace Data Facility-East, 15-0, in a late-season, intramural softball matchup, July 2 at Graves Field.

DTRA, one of the ablest softball squads in Belvoir’s intramurals league, claiming more championship titles, and Commander’s Cup trophies than any other unit on the installation came to Graves Field with a roster full of veteran athletes and wasted no time unleashing a massive onslaught from the batter’s box. In customary form, the team matched its offensive fortunes with stellar play in the infield and out in the grass to remain at the top of the FY19 rankings with the 15-0 blowout.

The single-elimination championship tournament is scheduled to begin today, starting at 6 p.m. at Graves Field.
