Ga. – Kentucky Baseball Club 15u
Blue (7-1-1) fell 8-0 to the number five seed East Cobb Astros 15u
(9-0) on Thursday morning in a second round playoff game at the 2012
WWBA 15u National Championship.
Astros roughed up Kentucky starting pitcher Alex Daniel to the tune
of seven runs (two earned) in three and a third innings while also
limiting Kentucky’s bats to one hit.
you play the East Cobb Astros, you know that you’ve pretty much got
to be almost perfect,” said Kentucky Baseball Club 15u Blue head
coach Kevin Goins after the 9 a.m. matchup. “They’ve got a team
of guys who’ll be upper-level Division I players and or draft
loss ended for the Nicholasville, Ky.-based team’s tournament stay.
you come down here with wood bats, obviously that’s an equalizer,”
Goins said. “The talent in our pool, top to bottom, was better than
most years that I’ve come down here. We enjoyed coming down here.
It’s kind of a measuring stick of where our program and skill level
are at. I’m tickled to death to walk out of here 7-1-1 and survive
pool play with no losses.”
said the organization enjoys how “well-run” Perfect Game events
have been over the years and should continue to be in the future.
appreciate everything that Perfect Game does as far as allowing these
guys an opportunity to be exposed,” Goins said. “We look forward
to not only the summertime stuff at East Cobb but also Fort Myers and
Jupiter in the fall.”
