On Mother’s Day Weekend the 2013 Valparaiso Vikings 10U Baseball Travel Team defended their 2012 Championship and improved their record to 14-2, going 4-0 in the BPA Karsten’s Umpire Appreciation Tournament in Michigan City, IN.
The 10U Vikings defeated the SHK Landsharks Black and Morris Baseball 10U in Pool Play 10-6 and 17-4, respectively. Entering the elimination round the #1 Seed of their Pool, the Vikes went on to defeat the Niles Vikings 10-5 and the SHK Landsharks Silver 5-2.
The Vikings used 9 pitchers out of a possible 11 team members throughout this tournament, 2 of which pitched for their first me in Travel Ball. The Vikings seem to be clicking, are playing well as a team, and have won 3 of 4 tournaments. Being so early in the season, they still haven’t peaked!
The 10U Vikings will play in the BPA Bat Wars Tournament in Warsaw, IN on Saturday and Sunday May 24-25. The Team would like to thank the Sponsors for contributing to the success of the team:
