The 10U Dallas Tigers – Bergman won the USSSA World Series at Big League Dreams in Mansfield, beating all comers. The team went 7-0 on the week and played solid, all-around baseball scoring 51 runs and throwing a 1-hitter in bracket play.
“It was a complete team effort the entire week. I told the boys at the beginning and throughout that we would need each of them to contribute and that is exactly what they did. It was great to see them play together and for each other the entire tournament. As a group, we work hard throughout the season to get better with the idea of playing our best baseball in the Summer and it was very fun to watch that play out this week at the World Series. We had some tremendous performances offensively, defensively and on the mound and each of them earned the championship. I could not be more proud of this group of players and seeing them have the success they work hard to achieve.”
In the championship, the Tigers fell behind in the top of first 2-0 but responded with 2 of their own in the bottom half. After giving up three more runs in the top of the 2nd they again responded with two more in the bottom of the 2nd and two more in the bottom of the 3rd to take the lead in what would end up being the final score of 6-5 at the end of the game.
Tarris Murray was awarded the Offensive MVP and Sawyer Farr took home the all-around MVP award. Congrats to both of them on their recognition and performance this week.
The team will be traveling to New York next week to play in the NYBC National Championships which they qualified for earlier in the season. Good Luck Tigers!
