Our 14U Blue team played on the turf at FNB Field this past weekend. They came in third. Check out some of the photos.
"Third time is the charm! Our Keystone Nationals 9U White have faced Edge formerly known as Trojans three times in the last three championship games at tournaments. In the fall we lost the first championship 15-1 and the second 18-10. This time around, the boys came extra hungry and wanted that first place! Yesterday’s championship game showed how much their hard work and dedication has truly paid off! Final score being 21-15. Great job boys! We can’t say enough how proud we are of all of you!"
Thank you, Tara Villarreal for the commentary and photos.
The Keystone Nationals Select Baseball organization is off to a victorious start.
Our 8U team not only competed in their first tournament, they came from 8th seed (out of 9 teams) to battle it out in the Keystone Nationals Classic championship game. They fell short and came in as the runner-up.
The 9U White team took home the Championship in the Keystone Nationals Classic.
Our 10U Blue become the Champions at the Red Land Rumble.
While 10U White traveled to the Philadelphia Area to play in a BSE tournament. They not only played, they became the Champs.
The 12U Red team was at In The Net and they battled all weekend and came in as runner-up.
We are so incredibly proud of these young men and can't wait to see the hardware they continue to bring home.
Congratulations to the players and coaches!
Life has a way of handing us lemons. It is up to us to decide if we want to ignore the lemons or if we want to make lemonade.
Lt. Col. Kenneth Dwyer, student at U.S.A.C.W. in Carlisle, shows us that when faced with adversity, he made lemonade.
Injured in Iraq while serving our country, Lt. Col. Dwyer was injured. It was important to him to overcome the obstacles so that he could go back to doing what he loved. That was playing baseball with his son.
Lt. Col. Dwyer's son plays on the JV Baseball team at Carlisle Area High School. The Lt. Col. was recognized recently at the "Military Appreciation" day in Carlisle.
Watch this video, that originally aired on the MLB Network, to see how Lt. Col. Dwyer chose to overcome. He made some lemonade out of the lemons he was handed. We can all learn a thing or two from his perseverance.
Thank you, Lt. Col. Dwyer for your service and for showing us that anything is possible if we are committed to it.
“Every strike brings me closer to the next home run.”
