First Win of the 2015 Season! Congratulations to the 13U Storm winning the All Nighter in Hershey!

February 28, 2015

A great way to kick off the season and represent Sykesville and our travel baseball program. The 13U Storm won their first (and our first) tournament of the year at the "In the Net" complex in Hershey, Pennsylvania. The boys (led by Coach Chris Poe) played all night, and came from behind in each game with exceptional pitching and hitting to beat teams from PA and NY on their way to first place. Congratulations guys!


Welcome Home

The 10U Cyclones believe teamwork off the field is as important as teamwork on the field. Recently they partnered with "Operation Welcome Home".(, an organization that greets new troops coming home from serving in the Middle East through BWI Airport. These troops are tired, hungry, and feeling pretty alone as they get off one plane only to get back on another plane to make the rest of their journey home to see their loved ones in person. 

The Cyclones and their families offered a HEROES welcome for our brave uniformed men and women by helping to assemble goodie bags, make and display homemade welcome signs, and giving handwritten letters from themselves and friends to help brighten the day.

The boys had a ton of fun and really brightened the day for the weary soldiers with their great spirit and enthusiasm. It will be a special event the boys will remember for a long time.


Congratulations to the Winners of the 5th Annual Halloween Wood Bat Tournament
