Spitfire Elite- Pizarro (pictured above) has gotten off to a fast start this fall ball season and sit atop the USSSA national power rankings after winning back-to-back tournaments.
Last week we took a closer look at the 14U Division, this week it’s the 13U’s turn:
- Spitfire Elite- Pizarro: The Spitfire Elite from Dallas Forth-Worth have begun this year 9-1 overall, including 9-1 In Class with two tournament titles in two tries. They were victorious at the Matt Dozier Benefit Tournament and the Tara Sawyer Memorial Tournament, allowing just 20 total runs in nine games. Manager Chabriel Pizarro hasn’t given his team any breaks in scheduling weaker opponents or softer tournament spots. This will help the Spitfire Elite become battle-tested as they advance through the fall season.
- Dugout Glory 13U: Dugout Glory from Kilgore, Texas finished as runners up to the No.1 team at the Matt Dozier Benefit Tournament. Prior to that game they were 3-1 with victories against the Dallas Raider, D-Bat Elite and Texas Raiders, all Major squads. Tim Truman will have his team back in action tomorrow at the 300 Point Showcase in Tyler, Texas. They are set to take on the Dallas Tigers East- Lamonte and Performance Baseball Upchurch in pool play.
- Canes 13U SC: The Canes from Columbia, South Carolina, won last weekend’s Jay Criscione Super NIT in their hometown going 5-1 and outscoring foes 54-34. In late August they came in second place at the DeMarini End of Summer Global Qualifier, falling in the finals against a tough Carolina Rebels team. Impressively the Canes are 4-0 In Class and have outscored opponents by an average of five runs per game.
- Rawlings Arkansas Prospects – Allen: The boys from Sherwood, Arkansas, have first and third place finishes at two USSSA qualifier events this fall season. Last weekend they dropped a tough 6-5 title game decision to the Proformance Patriots, but won earlier in September at the All-State Qualifier. Overall they are 6-1 and have an important weekend upcoming. Manager Jay Amberg leads his squad into the Arkansas USSSA Fall State Championships to take on the aforementioned Proformance Patriots and Arkansas Drillers.
- Yankees Exit Velocity: The Yankees Exit Velocity from Mississippi have won each of the three USSSA tournaments they entered this season to go a combined 12-0-1. They have hoisted trophies at two Global World Series Qualifiers and a State Level Two Championship – outscoring teams by more than three to one in each campaign. A true signal of quality, the Yankees Exit Velocity are 5-0 In Class and scoring 11 runs per game.
