The 12U Oak Park Eagles A team went 4-0 to win the Downers Grove Longshots Memorial Day Weekend Invitational, May 27-28. This Eagles squad won the 11U tournament last year.
Dominant pitching from a deep staff of seven pitchers and a dangerous top-to-bottom hitting lineup overwhelmed travel teams from Berwyn, Lemont, Hinsdale and Naperville.
After the weather shortened pool play to a single game on Saturday, the team was seeded third heading into elimination play.
They played three games on Sunday, including the 11-5 championship victory over the Naperville Renegades at Memorial Park in Downers Grove. The Eagles are a part-time travel team affiliated with Oak Park Youth Baseball and Softball. The team is comprised of players from the six-team Bronco league, which concludes its season later this month.
The Eagles will then compete in travel tournaments throughout July.
