UPYBA 12U Chiefs Go 6-2 at Cooperstown Dreams Park

Players with the Upper Perk Chiefs just returned from six days of tournament play in Cooperstown, NY. Front row, left to right, Jacob Ankele, Matt Martin, Nolan Pedrick and Zach Brozoski. Middle row, Zach Smith, Evan Shade, Shane Mohan and Malachi Duka. Back row: Garrett Knowles, Aric Kressly, Conor Martin and James Weller.

                The Upper Perkiomen Youth Baseball 12U Chiefs concluded its travel baseball season with an expectation-exceeding trip to Cooperstown Dreams Park in New York Aug. 1-6.  Competing amidst a pool of 104 teams from all over North America, the Chiefs went 5-1 in preliminary play, earning the 26th seed, then proceeded to win its first elimination game in convincing fashion before being eliminated by the no. 7 seed from Virginia, finishing play in the top 32.

                Tournament highlights for the Chiefs included six straight wins over teams from NJ, AL, IL, MA, MO and TN and a very impressive offensive barrage.  Over four days and eight games, the Chiefs scored 116 runs, banged out 102 hits, hit 26 total home runs with 10 different players hitting at least one, and saw five different Chiefs pitchers record mound wins.

                The Dreams Park experience rounded out a solid 2015 campaign in which the Chiefs recorded an overall 19-12 record, recording second place finishes at the Quakertown and Forks tournaments, and finishing as a semifinalist at Deep Run along the way.

                Members of the 2015 Chiefs include: Jacob Ankele, Zach Brozoski, Malachi Duka, Garrett Knowles, Aric Kressly, Conor Martin, Matt Martin, Shane Mohan, Nolan Pedrick, Evan Shade, Zach Smith, and James Weller.  The Chiefs were coached by Matt Duka, Josh Pedrick, Rich Kressly, and Trevor Smith, while Steve Filko was the team statistician.
