After 4 games, 28 innings, and only 1 earned run, Team Valle Baseball’s 15u team captured their first title of the season. The final game was played under the lights at Dunn Field in Elmira, NY, against the tournament host, Jr. Pioneers. The Pioneers, jumped ahead 1-0 in the top of the first only to be answered by Team Valle with a run in the bottom of the inning when Omar Rosa cracked a RBI double to the wall to score DJ Berry. Team Valle would add another run in the bottom of the third off of a Kenny Cruz single, and that is all starting pitcher Tanner Cooper needed. He went 7 innings, 1 strike out, 1 walk, and 1 earned run. It was an unbelievable way to start the season proving that pitching and defense really does win championships!
