Check out our Teams in 2019 and come join us in 2020!
Our 10A team is a mix of 9-10 year olds, many new to select baseball. They have a 4-2 tournament record and have placed third in the A Only NIT, and fourth in the Jimmy Johns/ Mike Croushorn Memorial Tournament and the Capital Classic Swing for the Rings Tournament. They have one more tournament to go before A State. We will be taking our 10s up to a 11AA team next year and will look to add more 11s to that roster and our 9s who played this year have really developed well and will start out a new 10AA team in 2020.
Our 12AAA team had placed first in three consecutive AA tournaments before being moved to AAA: The Powerhouse AA Invitational, the Jimmy Johns/Mike Croushorn Memorial Tournament, and the River City May Classic Global NIT. Since moving to AAA our 12s have played two tournaments. They have an overall record of 29-9-1 record.
Our 13AAA team is in their second full season at AAA baseball. They have a 9-12 record against AAA/Majors teams and have placed third in two tournaments this year: CIS Line Drive Select 30 Super NIT and the Major Omaha Force Wood Bat Classic. The 13AAA will be looking to add a few players to their 2020 roster during our June 23, 24 tryouts to replace players moving into high school. Come and check out our tryouts.
Our 14AA team has a 17-4 tournament record and is ranked in the top 3 teams at last check at 14AA in Nebraska. We have had a great year with two first place tournament finishes: Plattsmouth Small Town Bash, and Jimmy Johns/Mike Croushorn Memorial Tournament; two second place finishes: The Powerhouse AA Invitational and the Central Iowa Sports (CIS) Diamond Classic Global State, and one fourth place finish in the Lincoln Midwest Brawl.
See our tryout info below and come out to see The Powerhouse indoor training facility after tryouts.
