The 12U Dallas Tigers picked up right where they left off in Florida by winning the USSSA World Series at Big League Dreams in Mansfield, TX. Coming off a PG Super 25 World Series win in Florida, the offense continued for the Dallas Tigers. The team scored 72 runs in 8 USSSA World Series games.
“The obvious thing was our offense just continued with very well hit balls throughout the lineup. Being at the games though, we had games where teams scored in the first inning followed by our pitchers and defense shutting the other team down from then on. Our guys just play with a lot of heart,” said coach Chad Polk.
In the finals, the Tigers had to beat Midwest Elite twice to clinch a championship. Earlier in bracket play the Tigers suffered their only loss 3-0 to MWE. In the first championship, Tigers run ruled them 16-4. And in the second championship game they run ruled them again 21-4 in less than 3 innings of play.
Individual honors were handed out as well. Josh Hoover and Owen Peck received co-MVP awards, and Trent Shaw received the offensive MVP award. Congratulations boys on receiving these honors!
Keep up the good work boys. Go get ’em at NYBC!
