12U Ingram takes 2nd in the Triple Crown Metroplex Opener
The 12U Dallas Tigers – Ingram came in 2nd place in the Triple Crown Metroplex Opener this weekend at Texas Star in Euless. In Saturday’s pool play, the game was in top form in all phases and the Tigers rolled to two consecutive 10 – 0 shutouts to gain the top seed and first round bye in Sunday’s elimination bracket. Championship Sunday proved to be quite a bit more challenging with slight wins over Dallas Stars Black and Dallas Tigers – Woods. The Championship game was played against the Dallas Patriots and was a real nail biter down to the bitter end. The teams traded runs in the 5th inning to make the final score 4 – 3 for the Patriots. It was a great effort for the first tournament of the Spring Season. Their runner-up place qualified them for the Triple Crown World Series to be held later in the summer in Utah.
The Dallas Tigers 9U-Polk played some of their best baseball to win 3 straight in the AAYBA tournament in Flower Mound to qualify for the Platinum “A” division bracket. The Platinum “A” division is the championship bracket where the top 4 out of 44 teams play based on their seeding from the previous 5 games.
“It is exciting for our players to be playing some of their baseball down the stretch, ” commented Coach Chad Polk. “And to make the top 4 out of 44 teams from around the state is a great accomplishment. Just dissappointed the weather ended the tournament.”
After battling the weather conditions for a solid week, AAYBA had to cancel the tournament early and the final brackets did not get played.
Congratulations to our 9U Dallas Tigers and we’re proud of all of them for their hard work!
