Congrats to The Factory 16U Black on going 5-0 at the PGF SoCal Qualifier last weekend in Irvine, CA and earning a PGF Premier Berth to Nationals. The SoCal Qualifier is considered one of the most difficult qualifiers in the country with 64 teams competing for 4 Premier Berths. The Factory 16U Black had wins over the other Premier qualifier Easton Preps winning 10-2 and the Platinum Berth winner CCA winning 5-1. They outscored their opponents 37-6 over the 5 games while only committing 1 error. The team hit .386 on the weekend with 6 home runs, 5 stolen bases and an OPS of 1.057 with everyone contributing. The pitching was terrific as the staff had 31 strikeouts in 29 innings and an ERA of 1.2 for the tournament.
The Factory 16U Black PGF team is made up players from 16U Black (Patrick) and 16U Black (AJ). We have 28 players between the two teams and feel that every player has made great contributions to the success and development of our team. Our success comes from hard work in practice and playing and developing as two teams over the entire season and meshing together for a handful of tournaments throughout the year to play as one. Our success comes from all 28 players and families and we could not do it without each and every one of them. Thank you for believing in the process.
Now back to work getting ready for a loaded summer starting with the Supplemental Power Pools in Colorado next week.
