12U Red Devils Cooperstown Runner-Up!

The 12U Red Devils capped off a terrific summer of baseball by traveling to upstate New York and taking second place, out of 48 teams, at the Cooperstown All Star Village tournament held from July 16-22. The Red Devils, who last summer became the first DHYS team ever to reach the Dizzy Dean World Series championship game, are now also the first team in DHYS history to make it to the Cooperstown championship game. The Red Devils reached the championship with a perfect 9-0 record, having notched convincing victories over travel teams from California, Illinois, Michigan, Ohio, New Jersey, and New York. Shortly before 11 o'clock on Thursday night, after a booming fireworks display under star-filled skies, the boys from Medlock Park and their final foe, Southern Maryland Elite, had their images displayed on the championship field's big board as they were introduced to the crowd of nearly 1,000. The finale was full of big hits from both teams, but the Red Devils finally succumbed by a score of 11-8, in a game that ended after 1:00 a.m. on Friday. Over the course of the tournament, the Red Devils walloped an astounding 32 home runs while posting a team batting average of nearly .500.

 

The 12U Red Devils played in seven tournaments this summer and made it to championship games in all seven tournaments. The Red Devils earned two runner-up finishes and won five championship trophies, including a third straight district championship and a second straight Georgia state championship. Congratulations to the boys for what has arguably been, over the past two years, the most successful all-star team run in DHYS history.


11U Red Devils Take 1st in Georgia World Series of All Stars!

 

 
The 11U Red Devils wrapped up their best season by going 4-0 in winning the Georgia World Series of All Stars in Cumming, GA.  With summer camps in full swing in July, the team was shorthanded, but with two Blue Devils, Will Berry and Kevin Austin, fitting right in and playing key roles in the victory, the team kept its momentum going after its impressive performance in the Dizzy Dean State tourney.
 
Powered by a team batting average of .457, dominant pitching with a 1.60 team ERA, and excellent glove work, the team jumped on all 4 opponents early and never trailed over the weekend.  All told, they outscored their opponents by a combined score of 34-11.  The hot bats were led by Leib Roth's 7 hits, and 6 each by Nitin Rao and Will Tansill.  Tansill continued his dominance on the hill in the Championship Game, pitching the final 3.2 innings against Alpharetta, and surrendering 0 runs, 0 hits and racking up 5 Ks.
 
Improving every week over the summer, the Red Devils finished a very successful campaign with a 19-7-1 record, two tournament wins, and  enjoyed a great run in the Dizzy Dean sanctioned State tournament, placing 4th out of the 15 teams that qualified for State.
 
Go Devils!
