The Las Vegas Scorpions 11u Gold came out swinging in this year's Spring Baseball in the Desert Tourney, hosted by Vegas Valley Baseball.
The 11u Gold squad, coached by coach Mo Molina, scored 10.2 runs per game in taking home the championship.
During pool play, solid wins over LA Rockstars (13-6), Utah Blues (12-6) and the NV Blasters (13-5) set the 11u team up for extra baseball on day 3. A well earned victory over the UCBA Barons Gold out of Utah, put the Scorpions in the championship game.
The California Desert Prospects gave the 11u team their only defeat during pool play, but in the big game, our Scorpions team would avenge that defeat (and then some).
The Scorpions 11u Gold asserted their will over the Prospects on their way to an easy 9-1 victory. Scoring 1 in the 1st , 1 in the 2nd, 3 in the 3rd and 4 in the 4th, the Scorpions never let their opponents in the game. No errors in the field and an outstanding effort by their starting pitcher, coupled with 10 hits from the offense, assured the 11u squad that the championship was theirs.
Great job Scorps!
