11U Black Win Victory Park 12U Tournament of Champions:

The ended their hot season buy closing out another 12U tournament winning the Victory Park Tournament of Champions 12U Division in North Ridgefield, OH. 
They won the championship over 11U BCI out of Youngstown OH 10-0. Great team effort, solid defense, no errors, everyone had a hit in the lineup, Kam Kramer threw a shutout and Brady Kramer hit a grand slam. 


Season Recap:


11U Erie Outlaws Black finished up the 2018 season winning 24 out of 26 tourney games, made it to five championship games, won four titles out of the seven tourneys they attended. Great group of kids who compete and play hard. 


 It was a solid year on the diamond for these boys playing an 11U/12U schedule in PA, OH, and NY. Playing tough competition definitely made a positive impact on their growth as a team. 


Victories over Beaver Valley Red, Michigan Elite, Stix Columbus,  Steel City Select and the 12U Steelheads twice were solid wins for our Outlaw family during some pressure situations. 

These kids proved to themselves and others that loyalty to one team and a team-first mentality can be difference makers when competing against bigger/older travel organizations. 

Most of the roster has played together since they have been 6/7 years old and their friendships on and off the field are what’s most impressive. They are a true baseball family of brothers who have grown up together playing this great game. The life skills and experiences, both high and low, will be positive difference makers in their lives as they grow up and become young adults. 

The following boys have given up so much time and put in the work in order to compete at a high level ...



Kam Kramer P, CF, SS
Quentin Orlando LF, P, 1B 
Mason Mac SS, P, C 
Joe Himes CF, LF, C, P
Brady Kramer C, P, 3B
Tanner Ashton 2B, P 
Ethan Bechtold P, 3B, RF 
Brandon Cosme 1B, 3B, P 
Paul Porter 3B, RF, LF, P 
Marquis Lehr RF, 2B, P 

 


Great job 11U ... you have made your families, coaches and the Outlaw Organization very proud. Fantastic group of kids, families, and coaches.

Special thanks to the coaches Dave Ashton, Brian Kramer and Tim Maciulewicz on an outstanding job.

 

"It has been an honor to coach these young men and be part of their journeys in life". -Coach Dave Ashton


Outlaw Strong and Proud!

 

Special thanks to Kim Kramer for all her great photos this year!

Game #2 vs Lakeview Lightning  (WIN 9-2)

                After giving up 2 runs in the first inning, Pitching and Defense was on display the rest of the way.  Landon Marsh, our Hard-Throwing Lefty, threw smoke to close the game out with 3 strikeouts in the final inning.  Landon (who may run faster than he pitches!) added another 3 hit (1 Double, 2 Singles) game while Mateo Kennelley and James DiSanza added 2 hits apiece!

 

Game #3 vs Cayuga Heat  (WIN 11-1)

                Will Herron led the charge in this one, taking advantage of his “leadoff batter” opportunity.  He started the game off with a double to the fence and added 2 more hits in this evening matchup.  James DiSanza, Blake Burchill and Frank (AKA “Big Hurt”) Thomas all had multi-hit games.  On the hill, we rested our Clydesdales and threw 4 different pitchers one inning apiece.

 

Game #4 vs MMB Bandits Black  Semi-Finals Game (WIN 9-0)

Game #5 vs Orchard Park Spirit  CHAMPIONSHIP GAME (WIN 11-2)

                We didn’t allow a run until the 4th inning in this one, snapping our streak of 13 scoreless innings out in the field!  Our shining star in this one was our silky smooth Shortstop, Blake Leslie, who made the crowd cheer with multiple “Web Gems” and laser throws to First Base.  Offensively, we came out HOT scoring 5 in the 1st inning and never looking back…THE OUTLAW WAY

 

 

EVERY YOUNG MAN ON THIS TEAM MADE MULTIPLE CONTRIBUTIONS IN DEFENDING OUR TITLE FROM 2017 AND BRINGING HOME ANOTHER CHAMPIONSHIP.
