For Team Steel Select 8U, entering the Frank Catalanotto Foundation Tournament on March 29-31 at Baseball Heaven was a chance to get their feet wet. It was the team’s first tournament, and they delivered like veterans claiming the tournament championship.
As a reward, the players were treated to a team dinner at the Tommy Lasorda Baseball Cafe inside Baseball Heaven. Hot dogs, fries, soda… the sweet spoils of victory. While it was nice to celebrate a team win, Team Steel Select 8U is ready to continue learning more this season and picking up some wins while they’re at it.
Team Steel Select opened up the tournament in strong fashion winning both games on Saturday over the Three Village Patriots and Team Steel Gold. After dropping their last pool play game on Sunday to the Islip Owls, it still set up a rematch with the Owls in the title game. This time, Team Steel Select came out on top with a 12-5 win.
