12U-Hernandez : Perfect Game National Champions

The 12U Dallas Tigers took home the Perfect Game BCS National Championship this weekend in Ft Myers, FL.  There were some tough battles throughout the tournament with Ringgold Georgia, Banditos, Team Mizuno, and SIII Hustlers.  In the end, the little things were the difference to win the finals.

“Our kids worked hard all year on the little things of baseball: bunting, baserunning, quality pitches in right counts, and defensive execution,” commented coach Polk.  “All the crucial games we played were won by one or more of those weapons.  But I also want to make special mention of two outstanding pitching performances from Garrett Reuben and Jaden Woodson.  What those young men did on the mound this week was just incredible to watch.  Proud for them.”

This group of boys has been in national championship final games each of the last 3 years (AABC, Super Series, and Triple Crown), but this time they were able to come away with a victory.  Nice work boys!  First of many to come.

12U Tigers Face Off with Dallas Patriots in Tournament Finals

12U-Hernandez squared off with the Dallas Patriots 12U-Stout in the championship game of the Triple Crown North Texas State Championships.  Both teams battled it out, but the Tigers kept the bats going when the game got close.

“I was proud of our kids this weekend for one simple reason, their approach at the plate,” commented Chad Polk.  “Hard to believe, but it can be difficult to hit in a small field because the short fences are so hard to resist swinging to hit a homerun.  Our guys hit countless well hit balls to the opposite field and we had some key bunts in the game too.”

Up next for the 12U Tigers is Southaven, Mississippi.  Best of luck in the upcoming tournament boys!
