MVP Blue Jackets 12/13u Taking Home Hardware!
The MVP Blue Jackets 12/13u were yet again on the hunt this weekend at In the Net's Stolen Base Extravaganza. This tournament was filled with some of the most well known teams in Pennsylvania. Teams such as the Harrisburg Hornets, Keystone Cougars Blue, Flood City Elite, and Grand Slam Bluerocks, are no strangers to success. Some local teams such as the NEPA Riverdawgs, East Coast Sandhogs, and Abington Dirt Devils, joined in on the competition but all in all, there was one team that really had it going on.
The Blue Jackets 12/13u took down this 15-team tournament in stellar fashion. Finishing with 5 wins and only 1 loss, the Blue Jackets rode the success train all the way to the Championship game vs. the Harrisburg Hornets - Killer Bees. The Killer Bees were the culprits who gave the Blue Jackets their only loss this tournament. One would say that the baseball Gods made the arrangements for these two teams to meet again and play for all the marbles.
After a very strong defensive performance accompanied with some timely hitting the Blue Jackets walked away victorious getting revenge on the Killer Bees with a final score of 4-2. The MVP Blue Jackets get back to practice Tuesday and will prepare for their next tournament in Berkshire at Big Vision on 9/17. Stay tuned as these boys plan on making plenty more noise for the remaining of 2016.
