The 14U Maroon Diablos won the USSSA East State Baseball Tournament Gold Bracket on 6/2/2019, with wins over the Kennesaw Generals, 9-1, New Level Perfect Storm, 10-2, and the Bill Arp Blue Jays, 7-3.  Our guys had a very good weekend of play combining good pitching, excellent defense, and timely hitting.

We have finished 3 tournaments (Easter Shoot Out, Bring It On WSQ, & Memorial Day Classic) in 2nd place this season, also.  Two of the 3 tournament championship game losses were closely contested games, with one being an 8 inning loss.
