Diamond Pro's 12u Gold team led by Coach Melino overcame an opening game loss to battle back and claim their first championship of the year!! 

Left hander Elias Hicks came in during the bottom fifth with the Hurricanes clinging to a 5-4 lead and a runner on third base in the championship game against the Syracuse Sports Zone (black team). He responded by recording an out on one pitch to get the Canes out of trouble. He would proceed to shut the door in the bottom of the 6th as the boys celebrated winning their first tournament of the summer.

Congratulations to Coach Melino and Coach Paolini and all the players in a well played tournament!!
