South Florida HITMEN 11U crown CHAMPIONS in the Florida Premier 12U Baseball League, Pembroke Pines, FL
As an 11U team playing up for the 3rd year in a row, the South Florida Hitmen once again found themselves in the Championship game this past Saturday in Pembroke pines, FL. Having been to the dance before, the young Hitmen have only been able to secure the runner up position...that is until now! The South Florida Hitmen are now Champions for the first time in 3 years. As the 8th seed coming into the playoffs, the Hitmen did not have an easy road into the finals. Having to knock-off the 1 seed, Cooper City Cowboys in the quarter finals late Tuesday night 5-1. Saturday's games were a slug-fest, for the Hitmen, having to retake the lead in both games. The Championship game, against the Coral Springs Seadogs ran nearly 2 1/2 hours long...and after a very hot and exhausting day on the dirt, the Hitmen pulled out the victory 12-11 in 6 innings of play. Congratulations to the 11U South Florida Hitmen for another great victory and for proving that determination and heart have no age limit. GO HITMEN!!
