NYBC Semifinals Set at Baseball Heaven
After three pool play games and an exciting quarterfinal slate, the NYBC semifinals are set for Sunday afternoon with four of the top five teams in the country. Three of the four teams are from California.
No. 1 SGV Hustle will take on No. 3 BPA DeMarini Elite at noon and the No. 2 Banditos Black will face No. 5 San Diego Show at 3 p.m. at Baseball Heaven in Yaphank, NY. Both games are televised on CBS Sports Network and streamed live on MLB.com/NYBC.
In the first quarterfinal Saturday night, the Hustle defeated the VSA Vipers, 6-0. BPA DeMarini took down the Hamden Yard Dogs, 6-2, and the San Diego Show won over Team Florida, 4-2. The most exciting game of the evening was between the Banditos Black and Team MVP Elite Squad. The Banditos went up 4-0, but MVP clawed back with four runs of their own to tie the game. The Banditos plated a run in the bottom of the fifth to take a 5-4 lead, and MVP couldn’t respond in the top of the sixth.
In the Junior NYBC featuring 11U teams, the Capital Renegades Red earned the top seed going into bracket play Sunday. The Junior NYBC championship will be televised live on CBS Sports Network at 3:30 p.m. ET Monday.
