12U Nationals make Cooperstown Championship Run

Date Posted: 6/16/2018

Park Sharon Nationals 12U baseball team was runner-up in the Championship Game last week at Cooperstown Dreams Park. Park Sharon placed second among 104 teams across the country!

The team coached by Travis Thompson, Matt Hucko and Curt Ison went 10-2 over a 5-day stretch, going 5-1 in pool play and then won five consecutive games in the single-elimination tournament. The five tournament wins were against teams from California (2), Texas, Utah and Nevada. We played Team Clutch out of Miami, Florida in the Championship game on Little Majors Field.

The Park Sharon Nationals roster and years with our organization (a total of 72 years with PSAA): Owen Miller (9), Cole Gillis (8), Sam Hucko (8), Alex Ison (8), Michael Perry (8), Brady Thompson (8), Brody Taylor (6), Cooper Delo (3), Tyler Green (3), Hayden Simmerson (3), Brantley Truitt (3), Cameron Bagwell (2), Austin Swartz (2).

Charlotte was well represented last week having 6 teams in the field. Team24-Brown and South Park both made it to the Round of 16, SBA Canes and Team24-Miller both made it to the Round of 32, and Lake Norman Steam exited in the first round.
