11u and 12u PG Super 25 All Tournament Team

Some of the best and brightest players shared their talents in Columbia City June 5-7 in the Perfect Game Super 25 Super Qualifier.  The winning teams now advance to the national tournament in Marietta, Georgia July 16-21 where a single PG Super 25 national champion will be crowned!  

Two teams will represent the Ohio Valley Region in the PG Super 25 national tournament.  In a disciplined and many times exciting display of skill, the Cincinnati Spikes completed a perfect sweep through the field to take the 12u title.  The 11u Midland Warriors used big bats and timely combinations of pitching and defense to win the championship.  Of course these two teams had players with standout performances but so did many of the other teams in the field. Here are the top performers making up the All Tournament Team.

Midland Warriors 11u Pitcher - Colin Ames #2 and Hitter - Luke Marsh #14
In the championship game, Luke Marsh had a grand slam and 6 RBI

New Haven Bulldogs Black 11u Hitter - Jack Warnock (9-10, 3 HR)

Cincinnati Spikes 12u Pitcher - Evan Webb (4 IP, 0 ER, 0 BB, 6 K's) and Hitters Will McCracken and Sergio DeCello combined for 9 hits, 4 HR, 8 RBI.
Sergio hit a grand slam and had 5 RBI's in the championship game.

Coach Christensen noted that Webb had a consistent approach to all hitters and was able to get ahead in the count and challenge hitters.  Hitters put the ball in play which allowed the defense to make plays.  Coach followed with the hitters McCracken and DeCello had a good approach at the plate in key situations where the team needed big hits and runs.
