Polk Wins Perfect Game 14U NTX Championship

Dallas Tigers 14U POLK swept through the PG 14U Champhionship going 5-0 on the weekend.  Tigers Polk had a tough slate on Sunday meeting up with Phenom, Tigers Godwin and Texas Stix in the Championship.

“Our pithcing and defense were locked in on Sunday.  We made a lot of great pitches when we needed it and made some huge defensive plays as well,” Coach Coy Polk said.  ” Offensively, we talked about being more competitive during our at bats, and the guys responded by working deep counts against some really good arms.  I couldn’t be prouder of our team.”

Great job fellas!

The 13U Dallas Tigers Polk rolled this weekend on the mound and at the plate as they won the Perfect Game Super25 North Texas Regional Qualifier.  The team went 5-0 on the weekend scoring a total of 58 runs.

“We saw good arms on Sunday …game one had a right hander out of Tulsa, then a very good lefty out of Arkansas in game 2, and then in championship game BN Phenom always rolls out polished arms.  So overall our hitters faced good velocity and guys that can throw a few different pitches for strikes,” commented coach Chad Polk.  “Also, in a lot of cases we had hitters in 2 strike counts make productive outs either advancing runners, sac fly, or just 7+ pitch at bats.  Our guys show to be progressing.”

Dallas Tiger pitching on Sunday was solid striking out 19 batters and only 4 walks on the day.  Allowing only 2 earned runs on championship Sunday, the pitchers total ERA was 0.667.

Coach Polk commented about the pitching, “We saw our guys absolutely fill up the strike zone.  Not only that, but they are getting better each time out at managing the game.  Seeing them grow into better baseball players on the mound is what we love to see.”

The team will be playing in the Perfect Game Super25 World Series Invitational at LakePoint in Atlanta, GA this June.

Good work boys!

Tigers bring home Perfect Game Super25 National Championship!!

At the Perfect Game Super25 held in Ft Myers, Florida, the 12U Dallas Tigers went into their first national world series of the season and came out on top. The team competed against teams from around the country and even Puerto Rico. They had a blast off the field as well. *** Click to view photo album ***

For the tournament, the team hit .491 with 10 home runs and 17 extra base hits resulting in 70 RBI and 81 runs scored. Pitching was equally as impressive with team ERA of 3.00 and WHIP of 1.469.

Individual awards went to Jayson Jones for offensive MVP and Jared Thomas pitching MVP.

In pool play, the Dallas Tigers went 5-0 defeating IBAHS of Puerto Rico, BC Phenom Elite of New Jersey, RTG Baseball of Florida, KBC of Kentucky, and Diamond Jacks Super 12 of New Jersey.

In game 2 of pool play, the Tigers had a pivotal game with BC Phenom Elite. Down 4-2 in the bottom of the 5th, Walker Polk takes the mound with no outs and runners on 2nd and 3rd. He shuts down Phenom hitters to hold them scoreless in the inning.

In the top of last inning with 2 outs and 2 runners on, Jayson Jones delivers a home run shot to dead centerfield to give his team the lead 5-4. The very next batter, Walker Polk, hits another homer to right field to extend the lead to 6-4.

The bottom of 6th inning, Walker takes the mound again to get the win and save for his team. Giving up 1 run in the inning, he bends but doesn’t break as the Tigers hold on to the win 6-5.

In semi-final bracket play, the 12U Dallas Tigers take on another nationally ranked team and program in Wilson MVP of Southern California. Jared Thomas takes the mound and deals. Giving up 1 run early, he then cruises and hurls 3 scoreless innings.

“Through 3 innings its 3-1 us. I’m thinking this is going to be a dog fight until the end and when to bring in our closer,” said coach Polk. “Then we rattle off 7 runs in the last two innings and just took the air out of the other team.”

Final score versus MVP was 10-2.

In the finals, the Tigers took on Indiana Ironmen. “Again, I’m thinking scrappy game. Ironmen just won the Travel Sports World Series at East Cobb Atlanta two weeks ago and have some recognition nationally. They’re a big physical team. We score 2 in the first and Ironmen answer back with 1 run. Then we go put up a 6 spot in top of 2nd off a very good pitcher.”

Trenton Shaw pitched and allowed only 2 runs on 3 hits, walked 2, and struck out 3 to get the win.

Caleb Bergman and Josh Hoover lead the team in offensive categories. Bergman went 3-for-3 with 3 RBI and 1 inside the park home run. Hoover was 2-for-2 with 4 RBI and a double.

Tigers went on to run-rule the Indiana Ironmen 16-2 in 3 innings of play.
“Clearly in 7 games, our boys were doing a lot of things right in ever facet of the game. The thing that sticks out to me the most is 2 out hitting. It just seemed like we always got the 2 out hit with runners on all week,” commented Polk.

“On paper it looks like we just rolled through this thing, but it was quite the opposite when you saw it. Pitchers were competitive with their pitches every at bat with a few clutch performances on the mound. Defensively, double plays were key throughout mixed with some amazing plays in the outfield. Offensively! Never seen anything like it. I don’t know that I’ve seen so many extra base hits and well struck balls up and down a lineup. The boys were all just clicking on all cylinders.”

The 12U Tigers are 24-1 in their last 25 games. Their only loss in that stretch was to a 13U team.

Keep it up boys! Go get ‘em in New York at NYBC!

Perfect Game State Championship Highlights

Against the North Texas Longhorns in the semi-finals, the Dallas Tigers jumped out to an early lead and captured a 15-6 victory in bracket play on Sunday.  Nine runs in the first three innings allowed the Tigers to put the game away early.

A two-run single by Ryan Patterson and an RBI double by Heston Tole fueled the first inning.  The Tigers were led by a flawless day at the dish by Patterson, who went 3-3 against North Texas Longhorns pitching.

Tole got the win for the Dallas Tigers and went 3 2/3 innings. He struck out four, walked one and surrendered eight hits.  North Texas Longhorns ended up scoring six runs in the top of the fourth to cut its deficit to three. Two doubles and a single gave North Texas Longhorns-Boddie life. Bradley Missel came in to close things out and stop the Longhorns in their tracks. It didn’t take long for the Tigers to respond as they scored six runs of their own in the fourth. The Dallas Tigers Hernandez scored on a bases loaded walk by Dylan DeLeon, an RBI single by Hudson Polk, a hit by pitch, a walk by Jalon Mack, and a two-run single by Max Lucas.

In the finals, the Dallas Tigers took out Texas Stix Black with help from Jalon Mack, 6-2.  Jalon went 3-3 at the plate, helping his team to a 6-2 victory over the Stix in the Perfect Game State Championship.  He tripled in the first inning and singled in the second and fourth innings.  On the mound, the team relied on Dylan DeLeon to eat up innings en route to the win. DeLeon pitched six innings and allowed one earned run, five hits and two walks while striking out two.

The Dallas Tigers stayed on top until the final out after taking the lead in the first.  Late in the game, the Texas Stix scored one run in the top of the seventh to cut its deficit to four, but it wasn’t enough against the closer Bradley Missel. Missel shut them down in the top of the 7th and got the last out on a strikeout looking.

Congratulations to the 14U Dallas Tigers Perfect Game State Championship winners!  Nice work boys!
