Linty Ingram’s 12U Tigers spent their Memorial Weekend in Houston, Texas, playing some of the top teams in the nation. In this three day format, only the top 6 teams in the 12 team field would play on Monday for the Championship. Saturday and Sunday’s record for the Tigers was 3-1 against good competition which set them up for a run at the Championship on Monday. The first bracket play game pitted the Tigers against the San Antonio Devils with the Tigers getting the nod in a 5-3 close game. The next game was against the nationally ranked and hard-throwing Banditos Black team. With solid pitching and hitting, the Tigers prevailed in an 11-4 victory which set them up for a rematch with DBat Chancellor in the finals. The Championship had a little bit of everything (two grand slams, hrs, great fielding, great hitting), but the Tigers prevailed in a 14-13 victory.
This is two in a row for the Tigers as they head into the meat of their schedule!
