The Weekend Wrap-Up for May 24-27, 2019

 In Stories, Weekend Wrap-Up

Disney Memorial Day Classic
Wide World of Sports Complex, Kissimmee, FL

Grit Baseball – 11
Tampa Force – 4

Eli Feld must not have felt like sprinting, so he went ahead and hit not one, but two, home runs as part of a five-RBI day that powered Grit Baseball to the 11u title. Grit’s Nolan Bultema also snuck in a leisurely jog, going deep for one of his two hits.

Sting Select – 9
Xtreme – 0

With a score of 9-0, it would make sense to surmise that offense was the story. But baseball doesn’t always make sense. Caden Cabral tossed 5.1 hitless innings before giving way to Andrew Hyman, who capped off the no-hitter for Sting Select, who breezed to the 11u title. And just in case limiting the opposing team to one baserunner weren’t enough, Caden Cabral went ahead and did his best Shohei Ohtani impression by hitting the game’s only home run.

Baseball Youth Elite Red – 14
Baseball Youth Elite Blue – 4

By Elite Red overcame an early 4-0 deficit by hitting “I don’t remember how many” home runs, said BY Elite Blue coach Dallas Adkins. The long ball was the story of the weekend for the Reds, who actually hit four in the title game en route to an easy victory. “All the kids played hard,” said Adkins, “and overall I think had a very good time.”

Inferno Orange Prep – 12
Baseball Youth Elite Blue – 4

Like a Picasso or a Coen Brothers movie, you have to look a little deeper than the surface to understand the story of the 13u title game. Inferno Orange Prep were firmly in command with a 4-0 lead heading into the fifth when BY Elite Blue rallied back to tie it. From there, though, it was all Inferno Orange Prep, who scored two in the bottom of the inning to retake the lead before closing out the championship with a six-run sixth. Kendry Suarez picked up the win, giving up just two runs in six solid innings.

WVAC Extreme – 7
PLO Bulldogs Red – 2

Leonell Borrero’s four RBIs led WVAC Extreme to the 14u championship in the Magic Kingdom over the weekend. The WVAC Extreme squad also relied on solid pitching from an ensemble of pitchers, including Josh Vicaguerra and Kain Smith, who held the Bulldogs largely at bay.

Memorial Weekend Championship
Yaphank, NY

DreamChasers Academy – 10
Team Steel Select – 2

DreamChasers Academy emerged victorious from a 20-team field, racing past Team Steel Select in the 10u title game by a score of 10-2. And for this one, unfortunately, that’s all we know.

New York Angels – 11
Kamelot Knights – 9

In an epic battle that Disney will surely adapt into a feature film, it was the Angels who flew their way past the flightless Knights to secure the 11u title. The Halos zoomed out to a nine-run lead after two innings, only to see it nearly evaporate as the Fighting Gallahads answered by putting up six runs in the top of the third. From there, the titanic struggle went back and forth, with Knights nearly pulling a sword out of the stone by scoring two in the top of the sixth. But it was the Angels who held on to win not only the 11u title, but also the Michael Bay Championship Belt for Best Action in a Baseball or Softball Game. Congrats!

HDMH Titans – 14
NY Bandits – 2

As was the case with the 10u title game, details concerning the 12u championship contest are scarce. What we can tell you is this: the score, which is above. We can also congratulate HDMH Titans from emerging from a loaded 35-team field to secure the trophy.

Team Francisco Elite – 10
Giants Futures Baseball Club — Gray – 2

Antonio D’Amore and Dom Carbone combined to hold the Giants to just two runs and four hits to help Team Francisco Elite take home the 13u title in the Empire State. While their performances on the hill were terrific, both hurlers also aided their own cause by tallying two hits and scoring a combined three runs themselves.

Bronx Bombers – 5
Northeast Gators – 0

The Bronx Bombers’ Bryan Santana was nearly unhittable in his complete game shutout of the Northeast Gators yesterday. Santana, who struck out six over seven innings, allowed just two hits while Dariel Osoria knocked in two, providing all the offensive output the Bombers would need. Just like Whitey Ford and Mickey Mantle.

WWBA East Memorial Day Classic
JetBlue Park, Fort Myers, FL

Florida Hurricanes 13u Platinum – 11
MVP Miami Elite – 1

The scoring started early for the Canes, who put up five runs in the first and third innings en route to an easy victory in the 13u title game in Southwest Florida. Christian Rodriguez shined both on the mound and at the plate for the Hurricanes. Rodriguez struck out nine while allowing just three hits over five innings. He also went 2-2 from the plate with three runs scored.

Resmondo FTB – 3
Florida Hurricanes 14u Platinum – 2

We got free baseball in this seesaw pitcher’s duel, which saw Resmondo starter Bryan Rivera toss 7.1 sparkling innings, during which he allowed just one earned run. On the other side, Freddy Noel Beruvides Jr. held Resmondo scoreless through five innings before they finally broke through with two in the sixth. The teams continued back and forth until the ninth, when Anthony Schatz scored the go-ahead run on a past ball. Eidan Espinal had an awesome game, going 3-4 with one HR for the Canes.

WWBA West Memorial Day Classic
Camelback Ranch, Phoenix, AZ


3D Gold – 25
LVR – 0

3D Gold put an end to this one early, scoring 21 in the top of the first and cruising from there. Demitri Diamant and Zach Wadas were particular bright spots for the 3D Gold squad, knocking in a total of nine runs.
