EMW 12U Tribe in Cooperstown
The EMW Tribe 12u travel baseball team traveled to Cooperstown All Star Village the last week of July. They spent the week with forty nine teams from across the US and Canada. They were the sole representative from New York state during their weeks stay. Pool play began on Sunday with the Tribe coming out strong and having back to back wins over the OC Mustangs from California and North Edison Blue Devils from New Jersey. Day two proved to be just as exciting getting the win from the GVAA Vikings from New Jersey and the Eisnore Valley Tigers from California. The Tribe came out battling in their first game on day three against the Lake County Lighting from Illinois but came up short, losing game five. Wrapping up pool play the Tribe played Lemont Lighting Blue from Illinois. The tribe was ready to battle back for a win with Nate McGoldrick hitting a home run on the first pitch of the game and Sam Staerker, batting second, hit his 4th home run of the series making it 2-0 Tribe after just two batters. The Tribe continued to prove their dominance winning 28-1, with a total of six home runs by the Tribe, one of those a grand slam by Owen Silliman.
Wednesday brought some excellent news to the Tribe, their hard work and dedication has earned them the 6th seed in a pool of 49 teams. This earned them a bye for the day and they had a chance to relax and visit the Baseball Hall of Fame as a team.
Thursday it was back to work at 8:00 am in the pouring rain as the boys beat the VC Quakes from California 7-6 to advance to the top eight teams. Right off the win the Tribe played the IHN Warriors from California. The Tribe had a slow start to the game and were down by 10 runs at the top of the 3rd inning. The boys dug deep and battled back to win the game 15-14 after 6 innings. This win earned them a spot in the semi-finals game. It was back to work against the Lake County Lighting from Illinois. The boys battled hard with home runs, from Cam Fuer and Matt Mercurio, but came up short in the end. The Tribe ended their run just one game shy of the championship.
Tribe ace pitcher Cam Fuer threw a no hitter against the North Edison Blue Devils. The experienced pitching staff of Cam Fuer, Braden Axelson, Owen Silliman, Sam Staerker, Cael Greene, Matt Mercurio, Nate McGoldrick, Adam Halsey, Ben Bowen and John Watson had a total of 50 strikeouts.
The Tribe combined for sixteen home runs during the week, the Sultan of Swat title was earned by Sam Staerker with a total of five. This group of 11 boys, Braden Axelson, Ben Bowen, Michael Capozzi, Cael Greene, Cam Fuer, Adam Halsey, Matthew Mercurio, Nate McGoldrick, Owen Silliman, Sam Staerker, and John Watson all contributed on the field and at bat with countless catches, double plays, RBI’s and a total of 92 runs scored. This is truly an amazing group of boys, 6 of them playing together since 8u adding a few players each year to create this group of 11 Tribesman. The talent and excitement these boys bring to the field is contagious. Each game they played with their heart and the parents and coaches couldn’t ask for more of an exciting and memorable experience. The EMW Tribe 12u coaches Bruce Axelson, Matt Greene and Ben Halsey look forward to finishing the season strong at the Buffalo Wings Tournament in August.
