Rollin’ Astros repeat as Wheelchair Wind-up champs

Robert AveryMay 27, 2019

Could a dynasty be building amongst the teams in the Wheelchair Wind-up Tournament?

Next year’s opponents better find a way to slow down the Rollin’ Astros because they’re on a roll.

The Rollin’ Astros successfully defended their title from last year when the team downed the Parasports 7-6 in the championship game at the Verne Cox Center Sunday afternoon.

The Parasports lost despite an outstanding game at the plate by Chris Pettway, who created the final score with a solo homer over the 163-foot sign in left field. Home runs are never hit on Verne Cox’s signature field, but Pettway says it was his second roundtripper at the field.
