BRANSON, Mo. — The folks at Game 7 Baseball brought their Best of the Midwest event to Ballparks of America over the weekend, scattering 32 teams from 11U to 12U A/AA and AAA/Major across our five fields.
Three teams took home championships after pool play and an elimination bracket:
11U Division: New Melle Tigers (MO)
12U A/AA Division: Sliders
12U AAA/Major Division: Eureka Wildcats (MO)
Mighty bats were on display, as Benjamin Ruter of the 12U Springfield Mavericks (MO) shows below. He slapped his first career grand slam at Chicago Field on Saturday.
