Blue finishes 3rd out of 42 in Memorial Day Madness

The Liberty 12U Blue battled the weather and top notch opponents to take 3rd place out of a field of 42 teams from eight states in the three-day Memorial Day Madness Tournament.

What was supposed to be a three game opening round on Saturday turned into a single game after rain forced the suspension of Game 2 with Liberty up 4-0 in the top of the 4th inning and one out away from a regulation game. On Sunday, all three games were completed including the second game which was played in a steady downpour at times. Despite the abbreviated schedule Liberty managed to make the top 16 and the Gold Bracket Championship round. There they won two games before falling in the semi-finals 6-4. Great job under trying conditions!
