AAU BASEBALL NATIONALS

Nationals moved this summer from Ft. Myers to Sarasota, Florida. They kicked off with a great beach party on the country's #1 beach: Siesta Key. The athletes played volleyball, football, Frisbee, and took a swim in the Gulf of Mexico before they were treated to pizza, soft drinks, and hand-dipped ice cream! Then it was on to the Baltimore Orioles' Spring Training Complex (Buck O'Neil Baseball Complex) for a week of absolutely awesome baseball. And, very unusual for Florida in the summer, we had no significant rain delays! Teams made their way south from Canada, Michigan, Ohio, Massachusetts, New Jersey, Texas, Alabama, Florida (cities north of Sarasota), Colorado, Georgia, Virginia, Connecticut, Illinois, Louisiana, and north from Puerto Rico.

Here are your champions:

14U: Puerto Rico Hawks – PR

TSA Titans – GA


UNDERCLASSMEN GOLD:
Connecticut Clubhouse – CT


UPPERCLASSMEN:
Brazos Valley Renegades – TX

Congratulations to all the teams who participated in Nationals!
