image1Trevor Duck started the day by throwing a complete game shutout against the Academy Select Sundevils. Jacob Holder came through with a 2 out, 2 run Triple in the 4th to secure the win 2-0.

Brooks Gay followed up with a gem of his own. Gay struck out 6 and did not allow a run in the 2-0 win. Adian Kuni’s RBI Double in the 1st was all the scoring the Tigers would need.

In game 3, the Tigers jumped out to a 5-1 lead in the 1st on a Cole Bedwell Triple, Chase Wohnoutka Double, and RBI from Teague Rehwald.  Adrian Najar earned the win on the mound.

Coach Elliot added, “We are really hard to beat when we play like this! Great pitching, great defense, and kids stepping up in big moments at the plate. Solid execution all weekend!”

Congratulations on a great weekend of Baseball!

Mid-South Super NIT

13U Mid-South Super NIT CHAMPS!

Mid-South Super NITThis past weekend in Southaven, Mississippi at the Mid-South Super NIT was the normal nail-biter the Dallas Tigers are accustom to.  Tight games, back-and-forth, come from behind victories, and athletic plays all in a typical weekend.

Notable victories in the Mid-South Super NIT quarter finals, semi-finals, and finals were a rematch with the Louisiana Tigers, Memphis Tigers, and Dulin’s Dodgers.

In the quarter finals, the Dallas Tigers found themselves down 6-0 at the end of the 2nd inning because of defensive miscues and Louisiana Tigers right hander on the mound dealing early.  But as the game would have it, our Dallas Tigers started chipping away beginning with a solo homer in the 3rd by Tommy Delaney to make it 6-1.  Then another solo homerun in the 4th by Trenton Shaw made it 6-2.  Then in the 5th inning with runners on, Jayson Jones and Walker Polk hit back-to-back doubles to bring the score to 6-4.  Ultimately with the bases loaded and 2 outs, Jacob Devenny hits a hard single up the middle to score 2 and tie the game 6-6.

With time expired, the teams went into tiebreaker format, bases loaded and no outs.  In the top of the 6th (extra inning) with bases loaded and no outs, Josh Hoover takes the mound and strikes out the first to batters faced and gets a ground ball to third baseman Jayson Jones for the final out.  It would be Owen Peck’s walk-off line drive single to center that would put the Dallas Tigers advancing to the semi-finals.

The championship game versus Dulin’s Dodgers, was an offensive slugfest.  Great hitters on both teams were difficult to contain.  The Tigers struck first with 1 run in the 2nd inning, but the Dodgers struck back with 4 runs of their own in the same inning (4-1).  The score was 7-3 after 3 innings.  In the 4th and 5th innings, Josh Hoover was able to hold the Dodgers to no runs while his team tacked on more runs to narrow the lead and ultimately tie it up.  Being down 7-5 headed into the 6th inning, the Tigers rallied and put on 6 runs as result of walk, 4 hits, 1 sac fly, wild pitch and a 2 run bomb by Trenton Shaw.  With time expired in the bottom of the 6th and score 11-7, we needed the last 3 outs.  The Dodgers gave some fight in the last inning scoring 2 runs, but the game ultimately ended with Josh Hoover hurling a full count called third strike for the win!  11-9 was the final score.

“We are just hard to beat, period. I sound like a proud coach, but this has happened many times.  Our guys just have heart and fight that you can’t teach,” said coach Chad Polk.  “We certainly had our share of defensive miscues that got us in those situations, but this is not a perfect game and sometimes you have to make plays as a team to overcome errors, mistake pitches, etc.  It takes a whole roster to do that.  Every one of our players contributed to the success of these games.”

In other notes, the Dallas Tigers Baseball Club won both the 13U & 14U Major divisions of this Mid-South Super NIT in Southaven, Mississippi.  Way to go Tigers!!

14U Polk are Champs at MidSouth Select 30 in Mississippi

What a weekend for Dallas Tigers 14U Polk who went out to Southaven, Mississippi and brought home the hardware.  The Tigers had a tough road to sled after stubbing their toe in Game 1 of pool play on Saturday.  The Tigers came roaring back to run the table winning their next 6 games including beating Team Sandlot in the Championship.

“I cant put into words how proud I am of this team”, Coach Coy Polk commented.  “Our backs were against the wall and these guys showed everyone what they are made of.  They poured every ounce of energy into every game and played their tales off.  The best part of this Championship is no one will really understand what we went through to get there.  It was such a gutsy performance by everyone of those boys.  I think this TEAM proved to themselves what they’re capable of.  Absolutely amazing weekend.”

Way to represent the Dallas Tigers Organization fellas!!!  Keep on working hard!
