TOURNAMENT RESULTS: 14U ALABAMA STATE TOURNAMENT
Team Alabama (TBS ranked 5th) which is based out of Birmingham, AL and coached by the Bases Loaded Bombers instructors came out on top but not after a back and forth game(s) against the Alabama Storm (ranked 19th nationally by TBS) who are based in south Alabama.
Between the two teams there are four players on TravelBallSelect’s Players to Watch list: David Dahl - Team Alabama, Addison Russell - Alabama Storm, Jordan Ebert - Alabama Storm, Russ Mosley - Alabama Storm and several others who have proven themselves worthy based on play thus far. However, as has been the issue for this season, the Storm was without a few players - three starters none the less - due to school ball (south Alabama high school coaches frown on travel ball and make it mandatory for players to participate in all school events, even in the summer).
The two teams eventually do meet again and this time the Storm wins the “do-or-die” game with TA’s David Dahl on the mound by a score of 8 to 7. The Storm was leading the game at one point 7 to 2 and had to hold off a rally to make it to the title game. The close win set up a true championship elimination game.
