Belmont Bandits 11U baseball team

Gold Championship secured

Mar. 25, 2019

It was a pretty weekend, and an ugly two games on Sunday - but the Bandits found a way to squeak by to capture another “American” Gold championship. Saturday games were a little better played, and we set ourselves up for a number one seed to begin Sunday games. We scored 37 runs, and allowed 4 on Saturday. We saved our sloppy play for Sunday, but managed to overcome a couple bad innings in the end. 

We defeated the Dubs team and LBC Hammerheads on day one. On day two, we showed our lack of practice by throwing the ball away a couple of times, and made some bad fielding decisions several times. The Carolina Cannons gave us a scare in game one of Sundays action, and after beating them we went on to defeat Legacy Baseball in the championship game. We won that game 14-7....and it was a roller coaster ride. We fell behind by four runs in the top of the first inning, but then found a way to get the tour bus back onto even pavement. We ended up finishing much stronger in the last few innings despite the old slow down tactics approach versus our team, and dominated the clap happy opponent after our initial terrible inning of play. I’m glad our boys came to play ball, and figured out a way to get rolling. We have a lot of work to do, and are not playing great baseball right now. That rough play will catch up to us soon, so we had better get our act together soon or else we will be fishing a whole lot more than we want to during this time of year.

Congrats to the boys on finding a way to win. But we have a lot of practice ahead of us.
