Four years of playing baseball together culminatedthis past week with 12u Red visitingCooperstown to play in the week-long tournament at Dreams Park. 104 Teams from all over the country participated in the tournament. On Wednesday, 12u Red battled to two playoff wins vs teams from California and New York, and in game 3, took a commanding 8-4 lead into the bottom of the 6th, before injuries and three straight games in the hot sun finally took its toll.
Over the last four years, this team has won plenty of tournaments and league titles, but victory on the baseball field doesn't comeclose to capturing what 12u Red is about. It is about a 9u team assembled in 2012, most from the same small geographical area, many going to the same school who stayed together for 4 years, creating an everlasting bond on and off the field that they will share for a lifetime.
12u Red invites you to click on the link below to share in their Cooperstown experience from this past week and hope it creates Dreams of the future for the next generation of Elite Players.
