The 8 and 9 year old Essex baseball team won the Stratford Major Rookie baseball tournament this past weekend.

As Essex Minor baseball celebrates it's 60th anniversary, their young rookie team shows nothing but promise and optimism.

After tying the Erindale Lions 2 to 2 in game 1 of the tournament, the young Yellow Jackets went on to defeat the host team Stratford Nationals , the Mitchell Meteors, and the Strathroy Royals. Essex would meet Erindale again in the Championship, and defeat the talented and classy Lions 3 to 1 in a boisterous, and eventful championship caliber game.

The spirit and mojo of the Essex fans played a large part in the team's success, as their contagious enthusiasm spread, and other teams and community members began to support the Jackets. Hard hitting Ty Patterson, and up and coming Teagan Lu, gave the fans plenty to cheer for with timely hitting, while outfielders Cole Grant and Sean Wilson defensively locked down the center of the field.

Sprawling LF Zach Grein caught the final out of the tournament in spectacular fashion, while Maidstone's Nathan Lozon provided strong play throughout. The coaches can't say enough about the players, including Brendan Ledoux and Tobey Trepanier who were responsible for key RBI hits, and the individual game MVP performances by Jimmy Hayes, Ethan O'Neil, birthday boy Ryan Smith, and the fantastic twin brothers, Braeden and Caleb Cavanagh.

Please keep watching for this exciting group of young athletes as they race towards a possible Ontario championship.
