WHAT A WEEKEND FOR OUR ALL-STAR & TOURNAMENT TEAMS!!
Spring Season is over, but things are just heating up for our NSB All-Star and Tournament teams. Here's a recap of this past weekend's highlights:
THE 7U AMERICAN ALL-STAR TEAM won both of its games and took 3rd place in the Seattle Pony Baseball tournament. They were not in the championship game due to run differential.
THE 7U NATIONAL ALL-STAR TEAM lost in the finals and took 2nd place in the tournament. It was a close game, with the team in the lead in the 5th inning, but couldn't hold onto it. It was a really fun tournament for everyone involved!
THE 8U NATIONAL ALL-STAR TEAM won the Silver Bracket championship in the 2015 West Seattle Summer Tournament Series. After going 0-3 in pool play, they won 3 in a row on Sunday, including a come-from-behind win in the bottom of the 6th of the championship game against the Newcastle Miners. Down by 8, they scored 9 runs, 6 of which scored with 2 outs.
THE 10U LIGHTNING ALL-STAR TEAM started the tournament in pool play against the Mountlake Terrace Thunder, 10-running them after just 4 innings. Saturday morning continued pool play with another win against the home team Maltby All-Stars – lighting up their two best pitchers, winning 10 – 4. This allowed the Lightning to get the #2 seed in bracket play, and move to the second round of bracket play Sunday morning against Maltby again. Maltby wanted some revenge on their home turf, and beat the Lightning 10-2. Finally, the NSB Lightning played their final game against our own NSB Bees, winning the final game of the weekend for an overall 3 wins and 1 loss, finishing in 3rd place out of 6 teams.
