Fall Ball Week 1 Recap

Post date: Sep 12, 2017 8:57:24 PM

After a rainy start to our 2017 Fall Ball Season, both teams were able to get outside and play this past weekend. Our 13u Team had an inter-squad game on Saturday, which was very competitive as all the kids are making the adjustments on the bigger fields. Our Showcase Team had a very exciting weekend as they rallied in the top of the 9th to beat the MCC Tribunes on Sunday! Erik Johnson, Lukas Haefner, and Ryan Hill all pitched extremely well and kept us in the game as our hitters competed in their at bats. Down two runs in the top of the 9th, multiple base hits and aggressive base running was capped off by Tyler Griggs' two run double. This gave the 'Canes a 6-4 lead going into the bottom of the 9th. Hill's ability to consistently throw strikes and a big double play helped to seal the deal.

While the fall is more about developing and improving then wins and losses, we want to recognize how important it is to stay competitive with your at-bats/pitches throughout the game. Our clean defense and aggressive base running allowed us to stay in the game and eventually string some hits and runs together!

Our Showcase Team is back in action against MCC this Thursday the 14th around 4:00 PM while our 13u will be practicing hard and scrimmaging before their first game on September 23rd!
