The 13U Headfirst Gamers to First Place at the All World Winter Madness Baseball Tournament at Twin Creek the weekend of December 17th and 18th. Capturing the championship at Twin Creeks was even more impressive for these players given that all contributed up and down the line-up. With only eleven players no one pitcher was used more than six innings all weekend. The teams 5 - 0 over record was impressive but their ability to out play top bay area talent outscoring the competition 47 to 11. Extremely impressive to their Coach George Athans was their ability to comeback when they were behind, work together as a team and the way they supported each other through the tournament, that is what sets these guys apart. The team is comprised of players from Pleasanton, Castro Valley and San Ramon. Pictured below. Front Row left to right: Cole Torquemada, Blake Staniford.
