The Greensboro R&B Aggies completed a sweep of the 2013 MJBL tournament held in Richmond Virginia. The Aggies also won this event in 2012.
The first game on Sunday was against Bridgeport RBI. In the audience were plenty of Pro and Collegiate scouts to see the talented Aggies team. On the mound for the Aggies was hard throwing right hander Loy Stone from Voyager Academy located in Durham North Carolina. Stone topped 92mph on the radar gun.
The game also featured highly recruited DeWon Burt from Fuquay Varina High. The shortstop displayed amazing defensive plays while knocking in three runs.
Another great performer in the tournament was Marques Johnson of Eastern Guilford and Dudley High School. Marques was voted tournament MVP. Johnson tossed a no-hitter against the Richmond All-Stars and picked up another win against the Satchel Paige All Stars. Johnson also batted over .500 for the tournament.
Coach Farrer would like to thank the players and staff for the hard play and dedication this week. Coach Farrer also expressed his eagerness to present Ray Crawford with the Tournament trophy. Mr. Crawford sponsored the Greensboro R&B Aggies.
