The Mercer Island 11U Thunder select baseball team won the Triple Crown Washington Season opener tournament in Wenatchee in mid-April. The tournament featured 120 teams in the 9U to 14U levels from across Washington and the greater area.

The Thunder started off in pool play on Saturday, taking an extra-inning defeat in game one 7-6. In their second team, the team bounced back to beat Bothell 12-6. During three games on Sunday, Mercer Island pitchers gave up two hits, and the defense allowed only two runs, beating Washington Senators 6-1, Eastside Select 2-1 and the Senators against 3-0 in the title game. 

The MI Select Board has reviewed the coaching applications and selected the
following Managers for the upcoming season:

9U Thunder Peter Noone

The Thunder Assistant Coaches and Lightning Coaches will be selected once the teams are formed this weekend.

Congratulations to our Managers for their dedication and hard work and good luck this season!
