Posted:

ALPHARETTA, Ga. – The 8U Yankees played strong throughout the spring tournament, May 17, winning four consecutive games in route to a 16-4 win in the championship game. “It was a fantastic season, and each boy made significant contributions to the wins,” said Yankees head coach Michael Cross. “The play of the tournament was likely Felipe Penso’s catch of a hard hit fly ball to deep left field, which stopped a rally and led to a win in the semi-final game.”
