The Menace Baseball Club’s 13U and 14U teams are both on very hot winning streaks. The 13U team extended its winning streak to 37-0 after big tournament wins over the past few weekends.
At the SoCal AAU Spring Break Beach Bash in Huntington Beach the Menace 13U went 2-0 in pool play, earning them the No. 1 seed, and was set to play the talented Cali Reckless. The game did not disappoint, having multiple lead changes, with Menace prevailing 9-8 and on to the finals where they faced BPA. BPA was able to handle the LA Extreme 14-12 in the previous game, however the hit parade was put to an end with Menace pitching as the squad from the valley went on to win 7-2.
Last weekend the Menace 13U again went 2-0 in pool play, earning them the No. 2 seed in their tournament, playing the San Diego Longhorns in the morning. The Longhorns got out to a 4-0 lead, before the Menace came storming back. Several lead changes later, Menace took the game 9-7.Menace, following the common theme in the tournament, fell behind the Yard Dawgs early in the semifinals game but were able to prevail 7-4. In an anticlimactic final, Menace never trailed CBA and went on to win by mercy rule 13-3.
Also, this past weekend, the eighth grade Menace 14U team played locally, at Murrieta Mesa high school, competing against some of the top programs around. Come Sunday, they would have to go through 2 CBA teams, to secure the title. They never trailed the CBA Bruins, defeating them 8-0 in a mercy rule. In the finals, Menace came out to a 9-0 lead in the first inning, but the CBA Trojans mounted a comeback, which was ultimately spoiled, as Menace went on to win 14-13, which sounds more like a football game than a baseball game score.
Another team on the come up for Menace is the 12U team that went 4-0 over the weekend of April 22. For more information on the competitive Menace Baseball Club program please contact Taylor George via email at [email protected].
