With all the weather, Dallas area teams were desperate for fields dry enough to play and found just that in the DBat Spring Bling in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. The 11u Dallas Tigers headed into OKC to escape the rain.
Going 5-1 on the weekend in a double elimination tournament with no pool games, the Tigers came in excited just to get on the field. Suffering their only loss in their second bracket game in extra innings 5-4 put them in the losers bracket early. Headed into Sunday, the boys ran the table winning 4 straight games to take home the rings. To get through Sunday’s bracket, the team defeated the Oklahoma Iron Pigs 6-5, D-Bat Elite 8-3, the Dallas Texans 8-4, and Oklahoma Powerhouse 10-1.
“We had a productive weekend. Finally able to get games in, pitchers got innings, hitters got a lot of at-bats, and as a whole were were able to gain much needed early season game experience this weekend,” said Chad Polk, head coach. “Looking forward to building on this tournament win, but most importantly catch up on our much needed games.”
