9U Baseball Squad Goes Undefeated in Memorial Day Tournament
The New England Junior Jaguars 9U AAU baseball team, made up of local players from five different little leagues, won the 2019 Memorial Day Blast Tournament. The Jaguars finished the two day tournament undefeated with a 5-0 record.
The Jaguars won two games handily on the Saturday and then won three consecutive games on Sunday, May 26th, including an exciting walk off win in the last inning of the second game. In the final championship game, the Jaguars got behind early but rallied for a crowd pleasing championship win. "We played five games in two days and every player contributed," said coach Vincent Enright. "Myself and the coaches are very proud of these players. They came from Riverside, EP Central, Barrington, PineView and Darlington. They came together as one super team, not just a group thrown together. They worked very hard and played together as a baseball family," added Enright.
Enright who is also a coach in Riverside Little League expressed his appreciation to Rumford Little League President Ed Wencis for hosting the tournament. The games were played at the Kim Rock Little league Complex in Rumford. Eight teams from throughout New England participated. In the end, it was the local Jaguars defeating a team from Maine for the title.
