10U Dallas Tigers – Bergman traveled to Long Island last week and won the National Youth Baseball Championship (NYBC). The Tigers went 5-1 on the week and outscored their opponents 56-24 (31-12 in bracket) for the week. In the championship game the Tigers played the Jersey Storm (who beat them during pool play) and jumped out to a 4-0 lead in the top of the 1st inning. Great pitching and defense kept the Storm at bay and the Tigers responded with 5 more runs in the top of 5th to go ahead 9-1. The Storm fought back with four runs of their own in the bottom of the 4th and had the tying run at the plate before getting out of the inning. The top of the 5th, the Tigers responded strongly by adding 6 more runs to put the game out of reach. Coach Bergman said, “It was really great to see them come out so strong in the first and then respond in such a huge way after the Storm got back into the game. You work all year in hopes of playing your best baseball at the end of the season and I was so proud to watch the entire team to play such complete baseball. It is not often that you actually get to win the last game of the season and I could not be more happy for this great group of boys and families.”
The Tigers ended the season with a 53-14 record and went 21-2 over the last 23 games winning both the USSSA World Series and NYBC National Championship!
Congratulations boys on a fantastic season and finish!
