East Lansing, MI - The Open: Tyree Bastidas, a 17-year old from New York City, played like a pro in victories over Pat Oliver, Phil Kirk and, in the final, over Pete Hanover. Tyree has amazing power with either hand, the quickness of a 17-year old, a variety of one-wall type shots and everything it takes to beat the best, which he did. Hanover was in the open final for the sixth year in a row, a remarkable achievement. Pete won two of those titles.
