The SETX Outlaws 13U squad traveled to the Dallas Metroplex, July 6-11, for the 2021 United States Specialty Sports Associations World Series. The locals did not disappoint with a dominant performance over six days against teams from Texas, Oklahoma, and New Mexico on their way to the championship.
The Outlaws went 8-0 in the tournament, scoring a whopping 80-runs, while surrendering only a single run the entire way. Their bullpen of 12 mustered a perfect game and a pair of games allowing just a single hit in tournament play. They were backed up behind the plate by two catchers in the tournament.
Offensively the Outlaws averaged ten runs a game and a couple of grand slams at the plate.
Anthony Zuniga led the way as the Most Valuable Player at the tournament, and Sebastian Avila took the nod as Offensive MVP.
On the season, the Outlaws went a combined total of 44-11-1 while competing in both the USSSA and Perfect Game leagues this year.
In the USSSA play, the Outlaws are number one in the power rankings in Texas and number six in the nation.
“There are not enough words to express how proud the coaches are of the boys and the accomplishment they had during the tournament,” Head Coach Victor Zuniga said of his team.
The Team Manager is Sherry DuBose, the coaches are Victor Zuniga and Lance Moreau, and the assistants are Steven Wallace and Jessie Mallett.
The team would also like to thank Speed and Conditioning Coach Kimberlin Trahan from Train Hard Fitness and Injury Prevention Coach Chris Medrano for all of their support.
The team comprises nine players from Dayton, four from Liberty, and one player from Hardin.
