July 4, 2016
Chattanooga, TN — The Dayton 7 and under Legends All-Star baseball team won back to back games against Soddy Daisy to win the Championship of the Consolation division of the State Tournament held in Middle Valley recently with the championship win coming on July 4th.
Legends roster: Mason Grimes, Maddux Hasty, Justin Valentine, Foster Evans, Jaiden Hughes, Kamdyn Hixson, Reese Pendergrass, LeLand Hickman, Carter Wolfe, JT Brown, Bryce Garrison. Coaches: Jerry Evans, Jason Pendergrass, Willie Hughes.
Legends were runner up in the Rockwood Boys & Girls Club benefit tournament 7U travel ball division.
“Being a small park with only 27 kids in our age group I felt the boys represented Dayton very well. We went 4-2 against organizations that have well over 100 kids to choose their teams from. Our boys did everything asked of them from bunting, hitting opposite field, etc. They played small ball really well. Finishing runner up in District and runner up in a tournament in Rockwood, I was very proud of the boys for winning the consolation State Tournament on Monday night.”
“Our defense was unbelievable and totally shut down a very good Soddy Daisy team. I know all the coaches agree that we loved having the opportunity to coach these boys for the past two months.”
