June 10, 2015 - The Center ASA 8U All Stars participated in the ASA District 38 Tournament in Lufkin on June 6 & 7 and walked away with 2nd place. The girls won 4 games on Saturday and went into game play on Sunday undefeated. They won their first game on Sunday, which put them in the championship game, still undefeated.

This tournament was a double elimination tournament, meaning since they were undefeated, whoever they played had to beat them twice. The girls had already defeated two other tournament teams to get to the championship game. Tournament teams play 12 months/year. Our girls only play 3 months/year. This is a huge accomplishment for an all-star league team.

They also played the championship games against a tournament team. The girls played the first championship game and were defeated 14-10. They were also defeated 15-8 in the second championship game, ultimately walking away with 2nd place. We could not be more proud of these girls. They played with more heart than any other team we have ever watched play. These girls deserve this 2nd place win!

Center Predators 8U All Stars include: Back Row: Sean Crouch, Allen Hogan (Head Coach), KC Campbell, and Phillip Youngblood. Middle Row: Emma Pope, Whitley Youngblood, Trista Britt, Lexi Jones, Gabby Whisenant. Front Row: Kinley Snider, Reese Cockrell, Alex Pope, Sayre Hall, and Carson Crouch.

June 10, 2015 - The Show Baseball 12U travel team recently played in Tyler’s Summer Shoot-out Tournament on June 6th and 7th.

Pool play games were on Saturday, June 6th where the team won 1 game and lost 1 game. The team gave up too many runs and had to start Sunday’s bracket game at 8am. The Show beat Clubs Baseball with a score of 7-2.

They played East Texas Swamp Dragons at 1:15pm and won 9-4. The next game was played at 4:45 where they defeated T.H.A STIX of Longview 12-8 earning the team a spot in the Championship game at 8:30pm.

The Championship game started with the Show being the visiting team and scoring 4 runs in the 1st inning. The team showed up and played a great game at bat and defensively. They took home the golden ring with a win over Solid 9 leaving the final score 11-1.

They will go on to play in the State Tournament this coming up weekend in Dallas.
