When Ted Malek began looking for a place to play the All-Star softball game this year, he started with Victoria. When no fields were available he decided on Inez. For most of the Jackson County girls, the Inez field was a fitting place to play their final softball game as high schoolers because it was the first field where they combined forces years ago.
