America Free & Brave - AAU Tournament

America Free and Brave- AAU Tournament

September 10-11, 2016 at Canal Park

Our 12U Town N' Country Kings Gold team, lead by Caches Mike Fernandez and Manni Canasi, took 2nd place in the America Free and Brave Tournament

Town N' Country Kings President, Paul Trapani says, "I was pleasantly surprised with how we played this weekend.  The rain we got in August kept us off the field resulting in only 2 full squad practices before playing. The team showed rust on Saturday winning our 1st game against what ended up being the #1 seed Sunday, but we lost games 2 and 3 handily."

On Sunday, we played the #1 seed again sending the former PONY District and State Champs packing again. "The Kings came out swinging and a Danny Herrera 2-Run Home Run put the Kings up for good. Kevin Lopez pitched a gem," says Trapani. 

In the championship game, the Kings fought back from a 6-0 1st inning deficit to lose 12-11 leaving the tying run on 3rd in what turned out to be a 3-hour championship game during which Daniel Herrera hit his 2nd home run of the day, a 3 run shot and EJ Reyes banged his first ever home run down 2 in the bottom of the last inning making it a 1 run game.

Every player helped shoulder the load and earned that 2nd place finish. A huge congratulations to these players and coaches for an amazing weekend of baseball!

Coach Mike Fernandez, a United States Marine Veteran, was honored at the tournament for his service to our country.
