7 AAA World Series

The whole team waiting on a rain delay

one sad boy after our final loss...

Cody's team, the seven year old Kings, started playing together for the first time in January of this year. Many of the select baseball teams they faced this season have played together for almost two years. The Kings were bumped from AA ball to AAA ball in May. This was a challenge for our boys to compete at this level being such a newly formed team. At first they really struggled, but they really started to click as we headed off to World Series. They hung in there with the best teams in the league. Of the three games they played in pool play, they only won one. The teams they lost to were probably the best two in the tournament. The team that went on to win it only beat them by 2 runs. They played well as a team defensively, but could not get their bats going. For a first year team, they certainly made a name for themselves and I feel sure other teams will be watching out for them next year as eights when they have another year under their belts!!
