Rockets have blast at Cooperstown!!!!!!
June 28, 2013
The North Raleigh Rockets have played some unbelievable baseball this week. They went 5-1 in pool play and allowed only 4.83 runs per game over 6 games. With that, they earned the 16 seed out of 104 teams at Cooperstown this week. The boys finished pool play tied for 14th but ended up getting the 16th seed after the tie break. The boys faced some great competition with a few major level and a couple AAA level teams.
Going into the Bracket play the boys earned a few byes which allowed them a break until 4:00pm which then turned into 3:30pm to beat the rain moving in. Once again the competition was tough with nobody wanting to give up and be forced to watch the games remaining. The guys would win the first one to get into the final round of 24 teams. Then lose the second in a very close game that was a battle against a very good team from the Toronto area.
The eventual champions were the Warriors Baseball Club of Michigan. If you don't remember that team, we lost to them 3-2 and 7-2 early this year. We have played extremely well with some of the best from all over the country and Canada this year. The guys are continuing to get better and after Cooperstown, it has been great to see a group of 11 players who have played with each other for years, develop into a great team. Yes, I will say it no guest players for a reason. Just Rockets!!!!!!!
The guys finished 6-2 over the week, they had a ton of kids compliment them and tell them how good they were but the greatest thing was how the other coaches on several occasions said they played the game with class and character and showed great sportsmanship on the field.
It has been an awesome week and the boys have loved hearing the crowd cheering for them. They definitely got to "Live the Dream". Thanks Rocket fans!! you guys are the greatest. One more left this summer and there is a chance we may switch to another location with Nations World Series at Rocky Mount being played the same weekend as AAU. AAU only has 2 other teams in our group, where Nations has 10. As Always ----GO ROCKETS!!!!!!!
