KATZ EARNS GOLD MEDAL WITH US NATIONAL TEAM
NCDB, in conjunction with the Atlantic Coast Conference and the Durham Bulls, hosted the 2nd annual Triangle Youth Classic at the ACC Baseball Championship May 28-29.
The event was shortened due to rain and NCDB's 11U team, with a record of 2-0, was declared champion of the 11U division.
In addition to the tournament, players in the TYC attended the Saturday evening session of the ACC Baseball Championship and the players were recognized on the field at Durham Bulls Athletic Park prior to the game.
The NCDB 11U team continued its hot spring by winning the prestigious Triple Crown Border Wars tournament in Rocky Mount April 30/May 1. It was a perfect weekend for the 11s as they posted a 6-0 record and outscored the competition 52-12. They defeated the Kernersville Bulldogs 3-2 in the title game.
NCDB's 14U team finished runner up in their age division.
Christopher Katz had an experience to remember in July, first for making the U.S. 12U National Team and then helping the team capture the gold medal at the WBSC World Cup in Taiwan.
The U.S. won the 10-day World Cup event by defeating Chinese Taipei in the championship game. Katz saw action on the mound, behind the plate, and at third base for the U.S. team.
James Wright from the 13U team along with Ethan Brittain and Connor Thomas from the 10U team, were selected to participate in the USSSA All-American Games. The games were held in August at Disney's Wide World of Sports Complex in Orlando.
Cooper Allen, currently on the 12U team, previously participated in the USSSA All-American games.
