League Championship Playoff Races Heating Up
The 9U division is always a fan favorite because generally this is many players' and parents' experience in Travel Baseball, and because the fans truly enjoy watching these teams vastly improve over a season. In the Buckeye Baseball League, this year is no different.
The Ruth Division in 9U has 3 teams still alive with the Gehrig Division having 1 team remaining. The upstart 9U Geauga Knights were the #4 Seed who knocked off the #1 Seed to advance to the Semi-Finals. The Knights will play the #2 Perry Pirates this coming Monday in Perry. The Pirates had to outlast a pugnacious Crestwood Red Devils team 9-6 to earn their way to the Semis. On the other side of the 9U Bracket, this coming Monday on July 5, the #1 Euclid Panthers will host the #2 Solon Stampede. The winner of what promises to be a battle royale will earn the right to test either the Perry Pirates or the Geauga Knights.
In the 9U Semi-Finals, the Euclid Panthers showed the Solon Stampede why they were the frontrunners all year long. The Panthers beat the Solon Stampede 6-0 on the strength of a great outing by Joey Godina who earned the shutout. The Perry Pirate-Geauga Knights Semi-Final game was an exciting endeavor. With Perry leading going into the top of the final inning, but in true Geauga Knight form, the Knights would not go down easily. The Knights came back in the final inning to tie the game up at 6-6. Unfortunately for the Knights, the great offensive machine that is the Perry Pirates could not be stopped and Perry was victorious 7-6.
In the 10U Race for the League Championship, the 10U Geauga Knights have weathered many storms to earn their way all the way to the League Championship. Under the Guidance of Coach Hejduk, the Knights have been a team to watch all season long. In order to earn their way into the Playoffs, these crafty Knights had to vanquish a tough Willoughby Wildcat team in a "play in" game 1 day before the actual Playoffs started due to being tied with Willoughby in the regular season. The next day, Geauga showed up to play the #1 mighty Streetsboro Rockets only to have wait out the unrelenting weather. As a result, the Knights had to return to Streetsboro on Thursday to play. In a bitter battle, the Knights outlasted the Rockets 5-3. What a game! The following evening, the Knights traveled to play #3 seeded Kenston Bombers where the Knights pounded out 17 runs to defeat the Bombers.
On the other side of the 10U Bracket, the #1 Cleveland Buckeyes defeated the #4 Aurora Athletics 8-0 to earn their way to the Semi-Finals. The #3 Lyndhurst Lightning traveled to Solon Community Park to play the ultra-talented Solon Stampede squad. The Lightning found enough "juice" to hold off a great Stampede team 7-6 to advance to the Semi-Finals. The Lyndhurst Lightning will travel to Painesville on Wednesday, July 7th to take on the 1 loss and #1 Cleveland Buckeyes.

The 9U Perry Pirates were victorious in every contest in the Round Robin USSSA Opener Tournament. In the final contest, Perry was matched against a very tough and previously undefeated Premier Baseball Club. After 4 innings, Perry was leading 1-0 when Premier tied it at 1 run apiece with some timely hitting and nifty baserunning.
In the bottom of the 6th inning, Perry came to bat hoping to win the game that was still deadlocked at 1-1. The talented Perry Squad began the inning with back to back base hits. The runners were on 1st and 2nd base until they both moved up one base on a passed ball. The very next pitch was hit into the gap in Right Center field for the 3rd consecutive hit of the inning while driving in the game winning run.
