The Knights went a perfect 5-0 to win the Caribbean Regionals this past January.  The team based out of Ceiba, Puerto Rico is loaded with offensive firepower that scored 52 runs over the five tournament games.

Four Corners Regional Champions: BPA Demarini Elite

BPA Demarini finished off an impressive tournament in Las Vegas by defeating the Dback Baseball Club in the championship game by the score of 8-0.  Known as one of the nation’s top teams, we hope the club will be able to make the trip to Charleston to compete in the National Championship.

South Texas Region: Banditos Black

A dominant organization out of Tomball, TX, the Banditos Black 12u will represent South Texas in the PG Super25 National Championships.  Recently featured on the cover of Baseball Youth Magazine, the team will be a force to be reckoned with in Charleston.

Impressive play has backed up their team’s #2 ranking in the PG Super25 North Texas 12u rankings.  The Storm went 2-0 in a rain shortened Texas State Qualifier, but a 5 to 1 victory over the Dallas Tigers Woods 12u showed that the team is worthy of their ranking and will be making a run for the National Championships.
