OMG 13 AA Gold went 6-0-1 winning the last 6 in the tourney to bring home the 13 AA MBT State Title. In the championship game Down 3-0 in the top of the 5th, they battled back to tie it at 3, only to go down 5-3 in the bottom of the 6th. In the top of the 7th Gold tied it with two outs, on a bizarre play that resulted in stealing home for the tying run with 2 outs. In extra innings (8th) Storm Gold took the lead for the 1st time and shut down the gritty Farmington squad in the bottom of the 8th to hold on for the State title. Determination paid off for this special group of boys. Our theme for the season was " it's not how you start, it's how you finish"
Every single one of these boys contributed in bringing home the MBT State Title.
Some highlights include, a 5 run comeback to tie a solid East Ridge team in the first game of the tourney. In the quarter final game vs the #1 seeded Mankato team, OMG 13 AA Gold collected 22 hits, while cruising to a 5 inning 12-2 victory. Ethan Zimmerman pitched 15 innings in the tourney allowing only 1 hit and striking out 34 of the possible 45 outs. Aiden McMahon collected 13 hits over 7 games.
Congrats Boys !!
