The Jimmy “Catfish” Hunter ALS Softball Tournament held this weekend at the Jimmy Hunter Fields in Winfall helped to raise nearly $21,000 to go to the foundation named in his memory. Joan Hunter, the niece of “Catfish” Hunter, estimated that the three tournaments held this year raised about $27,000 overall. Scott’s Store, of Belvidere, coached by longtime foundation and tournament supporter Bob “Smiley” Stallings, beat out 19 other teams to take home the tournament title. Perquimans baseball coach Justin Roberson, Joan Hunter’s cousin, her son-in-law J.P. Pippins and Paul Hunter, “Catfish” Hunter’s son, were among the players on the Scott’s Store team.
