Inside the Park Home Run! [2010 Outlaws Baseball Tournament #6 Day #1]

The Outlaws played their first tournament as a 12U team. They are scheduled to play seven tournaments between Labor Day and Thanksgiving.

The Outlaws played the ASA Titans in the first game of the day at the Tracy Sports Park. At plate, Jack was 1 for 1 with a walk and two runs scored.

In this first at-bat of the fall season, Jack crushed a 1 and 0 pitch into left field along the third base line. The fences were very deep, probably more than 350 feet; the ball scooted all the way to fence. Jack crossed home plate standing up for an inside the park home run!

Jack walked on five pitches in his second plate appearance. He stole second and went to third on a passed ball. Jack scored on Jullian's infield single.

In the field, Jack played four innings at third base. He handled the ball twice and had one assist. The lead-off batter in the second inning hit a slow roller that went about half way down the third base line. Jack charged the ball and made a throw, but the runner was safe at first. In the same inning, he fielded a ground ball to the left side and threw a one hopper to Josh at first for the out.

Scoring 7 runs in the fourth inning, the Outlaws won the game by the score of 9 to 0 in four innings. There is an eight run mercy rule after four innings.

In the second game of the day, the Outlaws played the Nor Cal Phantoms.

At the plate, Jack was 1 for 2 with a strike-out and a run scored. In his first at-bat, Jack struck out swinging on three pitches. He pushed a 1 and 1 pitch in right center in his second plate appearance for a single. Jack stole second and then scored on Josh's triple to left center.

In the field, Jack played four innings at third base, but never handled the ball.

Scoring 6 runs in the third inning, the Outlaws won the game by the score of 10 to 0 in four innings.

They will be playing the Sonoma County Rebels 12U Blue tomorrow morning at Big League Dreams in Manteca.
