Dallas Tigers 12U Hernandez take home the championship in the Oklahoma Shootout in Ardmore, Oklahoma!
With an impressive showing in Oklahoma, the Dallas Tigers 12U went 7-0, outscored opponents 84-9, and committed 2 errors all weekend. The championship showdown came on Sunday night with another Dallas team, Texas Elite. Garrett Reuben got player of the tournament and may likely get Tiger of the Year award. Garrett pitched the championship game going a full 6 innings, threw 66 pitches, gave up 4 hits, 2 runs, 71% strikes, and 1 walk. The final score of the championship game was 5-2.
“I’m not surprised by Garrett’s performance. He has been doing this since he was 9 and I suspect you’ll see this type of performance from him many more times,” remarked Tommy Hernandez. “Bracket play was pretty simple. Have quality at-bats, catch it if they hit it to you, throw strikes early in the count, and execute. Our boys did that all weekend. Proud for them and hopefully we can carry that momentum through rest of the season.”
Good mid-season win boys! Keep up the good work!
