Dalton Harvey's 3 Run Homer Not Enough
16u Long Island Tournament Update...
The Terriers have three teams in Long Island NY this weekend. The 15u Terriers, along with the 16u Blue and Gold teams are competing at the fantastic Baseball Heaven Complex in the 32 team Blue Chip Prospects Northeast Elite Tournament.
The highlight of the day came off the bat of Dalton Harvey, a three run towering blast that landed in the trees beyond the right field fence.
At the time it pulled Terriers Blue to within two runs of the New York Grays at 7-5. The Grays would eventually go on to a 9-5 win. Matthew Vollmer, Robert Wilson and Ryan Acuri all had singles in this contest. Stefan Markovic and Mitchell Bond both had clutch RBI doubles.
Team Gold dropped a hard fought 3-2 affair to Hanks Yanks from the Bronx NY. The Yanks scored three unearned runs in the first, but pitchers Tyler Valiquette, Bailey Hantzakos and Matthew Fiorini combined to hold the pinstripers at bay until the Terriers could scratch their way back into the game. A walk by Daito Kojima lead to their first run after he scored on an RBI single by James DiFlorio. Shane Clarke doubled and scored late in the game to make the score 3-2, but that was as close as the Terriers would come. Chris Fisher and Mason Falbo also had singles for the Gold squad.
The tournament continues through Saturday and Sunday.
