Here is a CBL trivia question:
On July 31, 2010 the CBL played its last game when the Big Bend Cowboys won the final game of a best-of-three series against the Las Cruces Vaqueros.
Who was the final pitcher and the final batter on the last pitch in the CBL?
Sean Kramer batted for the Vaqueros and Reed Alfieri was the pitcher for the Big Bend Cowboys.
