On June 8-9-10, the Spikes 13U team traveled to St. Louis and participated in the USSSA Open/AAA tournament at the Ozzie Smith Sports Complex. With 16 teams entered in the 13U division, this made for a very competitive tournament. The bracketing was set up to where only the top eight teams in pool play out of the sixteen would qualify for the championship round. The boys were able to earn a berth to the championship round by going 2-1 in pool play and only allowing a total of six runs in all three pool games. The team won their first bracket game against the Pontiac Illinois Tomahawks 6-0. This moved them to the semi-final game vs. the St. Louis Heaters. The Heaters jumped out to a 3-0 lead, but the boys battled back to come within one run before the falling 6-2 in the end with time running out. Even though they failed to make the championship game, they finished in the top four of a sixteen team field and had a very well played, competitive tournament. Way to go Spikes 13U!!!
