The 9U Greensboro Batting Center team is headed to Orlando, Florida for the 9U National Tournament. We received an E-mail today from one of the team leaders, Jimmy Chamblee, that the nine year-old and under team known by many as the Greensboro Storm will begin play for this National baseball title on Monday in Orlando.
They won the 8U Coaches Pitch AAU Nationals last year and are playing in the Kids Pitch 65′ open base tournament this year. I believe that means sixty-five foot base distances and we pick up on the part where last year the coaches were pitching and this year the kids will be bringing it.
The 9U Greensboro Batting Center team recently won the State USSSA 9U at Latham Park, two weeks prior to the Nationals.
The coach of the team is Scott Clemons and we will have reports and updates coming to the comment box and elsewhere around greensborosports.com beginning next week.
Thanks to Jimmy Chamblee for sending us this information and you can go to www.greensborobatting.com to see a team photo and to find out more about this very successful group of young men.
