Laughing all the way to undefeated Vernon Mixed Slo-Pitch League title

For Hits and Giggles edge AMI 25-23 in A&W league playoff championship Sunday

For Hits and Giggles had the last laugh on teams in the A&W Vernon Mixed Slo-Pitch League.

The 2017 playoff champions completed an undefeated season Sunday, downing AMI 25-23 in the final game at Lavington Park.

After opening the season with a 25-25 tie against the 2018 champions, Training House, the Gigglers rattled off 12 straight regular season wins to clinch the pennant, then went 3-0 in the playoff tournament, which included a 26-25 win over AMI in the A-side final Saturday.
