The 10U All Star Slammers rode a series of five nail-biting wins to claim the Gold Bracket Championship in the Earl O’Neall USSSA Qualifier in Conyers on Saturday, June 9. Three of the first four games were decided by one run, and the championship game went into extra innings before NYO prevailed 7-4. Along the way the Slammers defeated the #5, #6, and #10 (of 74) B travel teams in the state. Winning an event like this for a Rec League All Star team is an incredible achievement, and is a great reward for a group that has been working hard, learning and growing. Well done!
