A total of 12 teams took to the fields at Copper Sky Park in Maricopa to raise money and assist the family of Israel “Izzy” Calderon, who was seriously injured in a car wreck on State Route 347 a few years ago. The 2019 Israel “Izzy” Calderon third annual benefit softball tournament raises funds for the family. This year was action packed on Saturday, as the first pitch was thrown by former mayor Kelly Anderson shortly before 8 a.m. and action continued through the day and into the evening, ending about 9 p.m.
