PeeWee Sox participate in tournament

Ridge Kramlich winds up for the pitch.

Five area Peewee baseball teams faced off on Tuesday in an action-packed tournament in Carrington.  

Our New Rockford Black Sox were right in the midst of it, battling game after game. Behind coaches Nathan Holzwarth and Hunter Thompson the team shined in various moments and fell short in others.

The first game of the tournament did not fall in the Black Sox favor as they lost to Carrington-1 by a score of 9-3. Lots of stolen bases and walks allowed were the critical factors that led to this one getting out of hand.

The second game was a different story as the Black Sox faced off against Carrington-2. They came flying out with three strong runs at the top of the first inning. Runs were made by Black Sox’ Ridge Kramlich, Sawyer Huso and Jax Demester. The Sox ended the inning with three straight outs to get them back to the plate. In the second inning, they continued with four more scores, two of which were home runs. Huso's home run led Kramlich to score as well and Demester’s run was possible due to a home run by Charles Jorgenson. There were no other runs for the remainder of the game, and the Sox ended up winning 7-0 in three innings.

The third game of the tournament found New Rockford matching up against Steele. The Black Sox started off strong with a run by Kramlich in the first inning. They were able to hold Steele off for the first and second inning before they eventually were able to score off another run by Kramlich at the top of the third inning. Unfortunately, Steele was able to rally back at the bottom of the fourth and take the lead by scoring three runs. At the top of the fourth inning, the Black Sox fought hard but were unable to score any more runs. The final score of the game was Steele with three runs and New Rockford with two.

In their last game of the tournament, the Sox matched up with Jamestown, a worthy opponent that was doing very well in the tournament so far. The Sox did an excellent job of holding Jamestown to zero runs in the first but struggled at bat. Eventually, at the bottom of the second inning, the Eagles seemed unstoppable with six total runs to close out the inning. The Sox tried to rally in the third inning but came up short. The game went to three and a half innings with a final score of 6-09 in favor of Jamestown.

Overall the tournament was a fun day for players to match up with other opponents and play baseball all day, making stronger connections as a team. The Black Sox performance was exceptional as they didn’t win every game but they still played their hearts out and bonded as a team. With this tournament finished it will most likely lead to better experience and communication in future games for the Black Sox.
