MARYLAND WARRIORS 10U FINISH 2ND IN FUTURE STARS FALL TOURNAMENT
October 21, 2013
The Maryland Warriors 10U went 4-1 and finished 2nd this past weekend at the FutureStars Monster Mash/Fall Finale played at Hanshue Field in Hershey, PA. The Warriors beat the Keystone Diamondbacks and Spooky Nook Baseball Academy in pool play on Saturday and took the #3 seed into Sunday's bracket play. The Warriors drew Spooky Nook again on Sunday and played a strong game to win 3-1 in the Quarterfinal, beat the ESA Avengers 8-1 in semi-final play, and lost in the Championship Game vs. Brandywine Jays 6-1. Overall, a good performance but inconsistent play and lack of timely hitting down the stretch put the championship trophy just out of reach for our 10U.
Tournament MVPs were Jordan Peguese who homered vs. Keystone and pitched lights out the whole tournament and Branden Brown for his dominating pitching in pool play. Keep up the momentum, Warriors!
