Team MVP 11U and 12U Showcase Dominance
PLANTATION, FL – Highly regarded as one of the most elite travel baseball organizations in the country, Team MVP wasted no time establishing themselves as front-runners in the 11U and 12U age groups for this upcoming fall season. At this past weekend’s Last Chance Pandemonium tournament, both teams dominated with excellent play on both sides of the ball.
For Team MVP 12U, it was a perfect 5-0 weekend, ending with an 11-0 victory over the PPO Bengals Orange in the championship game. After allowing only three runs in pool play, Team MVP earned the No. 3 seed and beat the Plantation Stars Gold, and Team Worth 11U, before claiming the championship over the Bengals.
As a team, MVP 12U combined for 44 runs and allowed only 6, recording two shutouts in bracket play. Their pitching really came through when it mattered, as they were able to hold the hot-hitting Team Worth to only three runs in the semifinals.
For the 11-year-olds, things were not quite as simple early on, but by the end they looked just as dominant, if not more, than their 12U counterparts.
After suffering a tough 9-8 loss to the Miami Prospects in pool play, Team MVP was awarded a rematch against their inter-city rivals in the tournament championship. Things would be quite different this time around, as MVP slugged their way to 14 runs and held the Prospects to just three. In their five games, they combined to score 74 runs, including a 21-0 victory over the No. 1 seed Florida Pokers in the semifinals.
Look for both of these clubs to continue dominating as their tournament seasons rolls along, as both of them are poised for Top 5 finishes in their respective age groups.
