No moment in time can top Files’ two-run home run in the bottom of the 10th to be favorite Central Arizona in the 2011 championship game.
Files went the other way, after faking a bunt, and hit a shot over the right field fence, setting off a wild celebration.
What will be this year’s defining moment? It could come early in the tournament. It could come late.
Chances are something magical will happen if the Bulldogs are able to pull off another national title.
Fans in Grand Junction remember how Navarro won its first title.
“It’s going to be hard to repeat,” Dill said. “That was storybook. These fans in Grand Junction remember it. They’re glad to see us back here.
“If it’s another walkoff or we somehow win by eight runs, we’ll take it,” Dill said. “If we play well we’re going to give ourselves a chance.”
