Bullpen Super Select
Grand Park, Westfield, IN

Motor City Hit Dogs – 7
Motor City Hit Dogs — Bean – 4

It was an all Motor City finale to decide the 10u championship over the weekend, where despite home runs from Jayden J. and Zack H., the Hit Dogs Bean squad fell just short to the Hit Dogs. Cash Moczydlowsky led the way for the champions, going 2-2 from the plate with 2RBIs while fanning six over 3.2 innings of work on the mound.

Louisville Sting – 5
Indiana Bulls — Black – 1

Evan Legrand had himself a day in the 11u final, striking out seven while scattering just three hits over five innings. It was more than enough for Kyler Chamberlain and Chris Logan, each of whom went 2-2 with two RBIs. Legrand also tallied two hits to help his own cause.

Elite Travel Motor City Hit Dogs – 11
Morris Tomahawks – 1

A scoreless first proved to be the calm before the storm in the 12u title game, as the Elite Travel Motor City Hit Dogs proceeded to score all 11 of their runs over the next three innings en route to securing the championship. Colton Klein and Quin were a force in the middle of the Hit Dogs’ lineup, tallying five hits, four RBIs and five runs scored between them. On the mound, George Szep was solid, allowing just one run over three innings.

Motor City Hit Dogs – 10
Illinois Sting – 0

The Hit Dogs continued their dominance in Westfield by easily capturing the 13u title. While the score might indicate that offense was the story of the day, it was, in fact, Rhett Roeser’s performance on the mound that tops the list of Hit Dogs superlatives. Roeser’s no-hitter was shortened to four innings due to the lopsided score, but the Hit Dogs ace showed no signs of slowing down, striking out five while allowing just one walk. Seven Hit Dogs, including Roeser, notched RBIs.

Top Tier Americans – 11
Indiana Bulls – 9

Like a movie, the story of the 14u championship game played out in three acts. In the first act, the Top Tier Americans stymied the Bulls, jumping out to a 7-0 lead. In the second act, it only got worse, as the Top Tier squad added 4 more runs, thereby nearly securing the victory; however, in this part of the film, all the Bulls’ training began to pay off. The Indina squad scored four in the bottom of the fourth to stay in the game and tacked on five more over the next two innings. Alas, the rally came up just short, and the Top Tier Americans held on, led by three RBIs from Lucas Smith.


Champions Cup Super NIT
Miss Sarasota Softball Complex, Sarasota, FL

Tampa Bay Legends – 9
Chet Lemon’s Juice — Corns Jr. – 4

The final score just doesn’t tell the story in this one. The 10u title game in Sarasota was, in fact, very much up for grabs heading into the decisive sixth inning. After rallying to trim the Legends lead to one, Chet Lemon’s Juice just didn’t quite have enough in the tank to answer the Legends’ five-run top of the sixth. Carson Binder had a terrific day for the Legends, going 3-3 with an RBI and two runs scored. Overall, the Legends notched 17 hits en route to victory.

Sting Select – 14
Phipps Park Barracudas – 6

The long ball was the story of this one, with each side launching three four-baggers; however, it was the Sting Select squad who put more runners on base and therefore brought home the 11u trophy. The Sting Select scored 10 runs over the final two innings and were led by Caden Cabral’s two hits, one home run and four RBIs. Jaxson Vassallo and Jaxon Smith also went deep to help the Sting secure the victory.

Kangaroo Court Roos – 9
Ballers — Lakeland Spring – 3

The Roos scored eight in the first three innings and cruised from there to take home the 12u title. Malakhi Boone did his best Kris Bryant impression for the Roos, going yard twice while tallying three RBIs on the day. In all, five Roos batters notched RBIs and four had at least two hits.

Next Level Prospects Blue – 7
Kangaroo Court Roos National – 5

The Next Level squad overcame an early four-run deficit on their way to the 13u tournament victory in Sarasota. With the score tied in the fifth, Zack Lester scored on a past ball, and during the same at-bat, Braeden Weckman doubled in Bryson de la Vina to score what would be the game’s final run. Jayden Vazquez tossed three strong innings in relief for Next Level, giving up just two hits and holding the Roos scoreless.

Lake Nona Lightning – 5
Kangaroo Court Nationals – 4

As Billy Zane once said, “It’s a walk-off.” With the bases loaded in the bottom of the seventh, Joshua de la Cruz’s fly ball to left was deep enough to score Denzel Flores, who crossed the plate to seal the win for the Lightning. Before that, Jeremy Rivera had carried the Lightning’s offensive load, going deep in the first and knocking in four runs on the day.

Micah B. did it all for the Mokena Blaze squad, pitching five scoreless innings and knocking in the game’s winning run in the top of the seventh. Micah B. was supported by Devan L., who pitched two scoreless innings in relief to keep the door closed in one of the weekend’s best-played games.

Muckdogs – 17
Delsea Dragons – 5

The Muckdogs scored early and often to defeat the Delsea Dragons over the weekend. The heart of the order did its job and then some for the Muckdogs, as Jayson H. and Aaron G. combined for five hits and six RBIs. Not to be outdone, the end of the Muckdogs lineup, also contributed in a big way, with John T., Mikael R. and Ayden A. combining for seven RBIs on three hits.

Kennewick Express – 2

Brandon H. hit a solo bomb and Quentin G. notched two hits, three RBIs and scored two runs as the Yakima Valley Dirt Dawgs slugged their way to victory over the weekend. On the hill, Isaac V. tossed a gem, allowing just three hits and one run over three innings.

West Chicago Showdown Championship

Zurdox Northern Illinois – 8
Top Tier Navy – 7

The Zurdox squad rallied from a five-run deficit to earn a hard-fought victory in the Windy City over the weekend. Top Tier Navy put up five in the bottom of the second and seemed to be in control until Zurdox came storming back with a four-run fourth. Top Tier answered, scoring two in the bottom of the fifth, but Maddux Clarence put Zurdox ahead in the top of the sixth, singling in Aidan Wyzard for the winning run. The RBI capped off a spectacular day for Clarence, who batted in three on the day.

Top Gun USA NYBC Qualifier

MVP 10u Red – 10
Garner Royals – 4

MVP 10u Red raced out to a 4-0 lead in the top of the first and never again ceded control. Trent B. started off the scoring with a solo shot, and it was a group effort from there as six MVP Red players tallied at least one RBI. Carter D. and Garrett W. combined to toss three hitless innings to start the game, and Carter W. held the Royals to just one earned run over the next three while striking out five to secure the win.
