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 ...
