Fall baseball continued for many of our teams this past weekend and we are excited to share our results.
In the Glen Allen Fall League, RockIt Sports 9U Blue team finished the day with a 1-1 record with a tough loss to RBA South but bounced back with a convincing victory over Evoshield Seminoles-Dowdy by the score of 16-4. Several pitchers logged successful innings for their first time out including Ben Favreau, Caleb Whitehead, Daniel Nienaber, Jake Bratton and Levi Jones.
Two of our teams also competed in the 11U Division. RockIt Sports 11U Blue posted a 2-0 record to start the fall league while RockIt Sports 11U Black finished with a record of 1-1. The Blue team defeated both the Commonwealth Cardinals and Northside. It was a great overall team performance with several highlights on both the offensive and defensive side of the ball. One particular standout was Luke Franco who had a superb day at the plate and on the mound. The 11U Black team lost a hard fought battle against the RBA South Ropes by a final score of 6-5 but finished the day with a shutout victory over RBA 360 (6-0). Highlights included a 4 for 5 overall performance at the plate for Peyton Lee as well as a combined shutout effort on the mound by Jack Ferry, Ryan Lloyd and Peyton Lee in their second game.
RockIt Sports 13U Black also played at RF&P Park posting a 1-1 record. In their first game, they defeated RBA 360 by a final score of 6-1. Rival Axselle went 2 for 3 at the plate as well as tallying two clutch RBIs. Mitch Larro, Landon Scott, and Anthony Connor all combined for a three-hit one-run performance on the mound. In the second game, the team kept it close until the 7th inning but eventually fell to Northside (13-1). Two notable individual performances for the game were Dylan Robbins who pitched 3 innings in relief giving up only one hit and Anthony Connor who led the team offensively with two hits.
Our RockIt 14U Blue also played in the USSSA RVA Fall League finishing with a 2-1 record. They started the day with a win over Rise 2021 by a score of 7-1 but ran into solid pitching versus the Virginia Hunters eventually losing the game 6-3.
