April 2012 - 12U National Wins CincyUSSSA Bob Roades Tournament
The Ohio Heat 12U National team won the 2012 USSSA Bob Roades tournament in convincing fashion. The Heat defeated the Mason Aces 16-1 on Friday evening. But, rain washed out all of the Saturday games and the tournament was rescheduled as a 10-team single-elimination tourney on Sunday. The Heat bats were quiet in a 3-1 win over Thunderbird Baseball to start bracket play. The Heat pitched a no-hitter and played solid defense against the Cincy Flames in the semi-final game to come away with a 6-0 win (the second win against the Flames in as many weeks.) The Heat defeated a very solid Detroit Baseball Club team 6-2 in the Championship Game to capture the crown.
