Friday, 07 August 2009 00:00The 11U Greendogs led by manager Glenn Rice won the July 4 tournament at Baseball Heaven in Yaphank. After losing game 1 to the SYAG Braves the boys put on a hitting and pitching display winning the next three games to reach the semifinals, two of those wins were by shutouts. In the semifinals, the ‘Dogs crushed the Dix Hills Dodgers and then got their shot at revenge when they had to meet the tough SYAG Braves in the finals. The Greendogs stayed hot, after being tied 3-3 going into the third inning, the Dogs scored nine runs, most of them with two outs to take a 12-3 lead.
The Braves gave a little bit of a scare in the last inning but the Greendogs held on for a 12-8 win and taking home the title. Coach Rice would like to thank the boys for a great tournament and to Coaches Fred and Matt, as well as the parents for their support all weekend.
