In their return to tournament competition, Liberty Blue dominated in the Star & Stripes tournament held in Chambersburg, PA. They played in the 18U Open division and rolled through the competition on Saturday, winning all three games by mercy rule. Sunday would be more of challenge as the team fought back from deficits in both the semi-final and championship games. The championship was decided after 8 innings, including two innings of ITB play.
It was a team effort, but special recognition goes to Abbey Lane who pitched a complete game in the semi-finals and came in as relief to pitch 7 1/3 innings in the championship game. Then, to cap it all off, with runners on 2nd and 3rd in the bottom of the 8th, she hit a walk-off triple for the win. Congratulations to Abbey and the entire Liberty Blue team!
