2015 NorCal NIT Tournament Day 4

Walbeck Elite 18U versus Hardkte Braves

The Walbeck Elite played the Hardtke Braves at Delta College in Stockton in the fourth day of the NorCal NIT Tournament. The Elite played against the Hardtke Braves in a tournament in San Jose last summer.

Jack did not bat. He entered the game in the top of the second as a courtesy runner for Jury (Catcher). He went to second on a wild pitch and then scored on Gregory's double. Immediately after scoring, he replaced Cregory (Pitcher) as a courtesy runner. He went to third on Starosciak's ground out and scored on Richardson's single.

The coaches have been using Jack a lot as a courtesy runner. In an odd statistic, Jack is tied for the team lead with five runs scored in only four at-bats...

In the field, Jack played three innings in right field. He had one put-out.

Behind a strong pitching performance by Gregory, the Elite won the game by the score of 3 to 2. It got interesting in the bottom of the seventh. After striking out the first batter, Kane walked and then hit a batter. With runners on first and second and one out, Rossitto came in and got the last two outs. The scorecard is here.

For the summer season, the Elite have a record of 2 win and 4 losses. The game log is here.

The Elite are scheduled to play in the Zoots tournament in the bay area next weekend.

Sharon, Jack and I finished Father's day with an early dinner at Rey Azteca, a long walk with Tiber to the river and presents (a tie and cologne) at home.
