Team MVP Legends, MVP Elite Squad Among Champs at USSSA South FL Classic
Miami was the scene of the USSSA South Florida Fall Classic played on back-to-back weekends, Oct. 25-27 and Nov. 1-3. Over 60 teams competed, and there were some elite teams taking part like Team MVP Legends, MVP Elite Squad, Miami Phenoms, Miami Prospects, Team Select and others.
Team MVP Legends, the No. 1 ranked team in Baseball Youth’s Elite 25 for 9U this past summer, earned the 10U championship with an 8-0 victory over FS Elite. The 10U Legends also played up an age group in 11U the weekend before and made it all the way to the title game with four impressive victories. PL Bulldogs Red captured the 11U crown with a 7-4 win over the Legends.
The Miami Prospects won the 12U championship over 11 other teams as they took care of Team Select, 9-1, in the title game. Those two teams squared off in the PL Bulldogs & Wildcats Brawl 12U championship a little more than a month ago, and it was Team Select who earned the win. This time the Prospects got a little bit of revenge.
In the 13U age division it was MVP Elite Squad taking care of business with an undefeated run to the title. MVP Elite Squad, or Team MVP as they were known as 12U, competed in this past August’s National Youth Baseball Championships, and they finished No. 4 in Baseball Youth’s Elite 25. They defeated Team Miami in the finals, 8-1.
