Comanchees Win Second Place Honors in Alaska
The Comanchees played in a great tournament in Alaska, against strong teams from all around the United States: Arizona, California, New York and Alaska. This was one of the hardest ones the boys played in because they were the youngest team in the tournament. They opened up against an Alaskan team, West Post. Anthony Carrotta got the call, pitching five strong innings with 3 strikeouts, 4 hits. The teams were tied 1 to 1 in the 5th inning when the Comanchees got a break on an error, which opened the door to a 10-1 victory. The team did make 4 errors, but they were able to win this one.
