Gators Win their 2nd AAU National Championship

Gators win the 2004 12u for "Back to Back" AAU National Championship Titles
view full size
  Greenville Gators make it "Back To Back" winning yet another AAU National Championship, the 2004 12u AAU Division 1 National Championship in Burnsville / Lakeville MN to extend their win streak in National Championship play to 18 & 0
   Just as in the 2003 AAU Nationals, the 2004 AAU National Tournament was just as tough. The teams at the tournament came ready to play.  Thanks to all the hard work each of the players did on their own time which included "One on One" training at The Strike Zone in Greer SC in addition to our practices put us in the position for success. Regardless of the situation, our players never gave up and fought tough till the end. We hit the ball well all week, and teamed with some great pitching and defense we were somehow aways able to find a way to win. 
   I think our players willingness to make the necessary sacrifices through out the week, and their determination to win another National Title gave them the strength to do just that. 

  I can't say enought about how much I appreciate the support of each of the players parents and our many sponsors. Without these guys, none of this would have been made possible.
   I would also like to say thanks to the tournament director, his assistants and umpires as well as all the teams, coaches and parents. We had a great trip, played some of the best competition in the country and built some great relationships in the process.


Here's the scores:

Florida Sun Devils           FL    11-1

Tidewater Drillers           VA     6-5

South Shore Seadogs          MA    12-2

Iowa Prospects               IA     8-6

Lake Norman Wildcats         NC     5-4

Glory Baseball               FL     5-3

Central Fl. Bomb Squad       FL     6-2

Performance  Baseball        VA     2-0
