11U Red Devils Take 1st in Georgia World 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 it's 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 15 teams.
 
Go Devils!
