                                                      2014 Season Highlights
11U Braves
The team had a competitive, fun and very exciting season (several games determined in the bottom of last inning or in extra innings.) We played in 58 games and 6 tournaments with no baseball related injuries. The team came in First place (17-1) in the Harford County Travel Baseball League and went 3-1 in the Ripken State Tournament to advance to a final round of 6 teams. Also, our team parents set up several team party/outings (including a top notch on field BBQ) to keep the fun going off the field for players as well.
