June 30, 3rd Annual Wood Bat Classic

The end of June hosted a familiar event, the 3rdAnnual Wood Bat Classic! We saw over 80 teams from 7 states with ages ranging from 9-18u.  For 14u and above, we used several colleges, minor league fields, and a top notch high school field. While the younger groups played at Domtar Park. 9/10u played a lot of innings, but Crusader 10u and Braves were the 1 vs 2 seed, as they showed their dominance though out pool play, and continued on in bracket. They met in championship for a great game with Crusaders squeaking by 2-0 on a game that was closer than it sounds.  

11u featured 5 teams with East TN Elite the only team going undefeated as they went 5-0 for the weekend and beat the Titans for the championship.  

12u was a similar story as the Crusaders ended up going 6-0, but not easily. They had some close baseball games, notably against the Stateliners, but the Crusaders were able to hold them off to become to eventual champions.  

13u was a division that saw extremely strong competition, fighting vigorously to get a win and advance on.  Game Time was the overall number 1 seed, but they were upset by RBI Sox in the first round of bracket.  TN Revolution went undefeated through bracket play along with Hitmen and Marlins.  Hitmen and Marlins eventually met in the championship with both teams entering the game 5-0 before Hitmen pulled away in the championship game by a margin of 8-3.  In the Silver bracket, Diamond Elite and Blueprint both 9 and 10 seeded teams, advanced to the Silver Championship with Blueprint outlasting Diamond Elite 4-3.

14u did not have a team go undefeated for the weekend. All of the top 6 teams all deserved to advance. In the final game of pool play, Nationals v Redstitch, Redsitch came back in the bottom of 7thon an error to go 4-0 in pool play, and that victory allowed KBC to advance!  In the semis KBC played Redstitch and the game went 11 innings before KBC edged out the victory.  In the other bracket game, Bluegrass who went 4-0 played Crusaders who pitched their way into the championship. In a rematch against KBC, the team that handed the Crusaders their only loss in pool play, the Crusaders were able to get their revenge with a 3-1 victory to take home the championship. 

15u was a NET Elite first in history, as the Falcons who went 1-2-1 became the first team with a losing record to advance to bracket play, and they made the best of it! In a rematch, the Falcons were able to get some revenge on the RBI Red Devils, winning 11-5. But they weren’t done there, they then took down the undefeated Bluegrass Xpress 7-6 for the Championship. Before that loss Bluegrass Xpress were 5-0. 

16u featured 10 very strong baseball teams.  The story of the weekend for 16u, was the Prime teams, RBI Prime and eXposure Prime. Both teams were undefeated as they met in the championship. eXposure, in the end, got the best of RBI and won the Super PG25 16u division  Wolves, RBI Tri Cities, Old School Outlaws, and eXposure Louisville Slugger, all rounded up the top teams that went on for bracket play. 

18u had some tough wins, and in most games the team who made the least mistakes were the ones who won! Bluegrass Xpress again was the only undefeated team going 4-0 but losing in the Semi Finals against Kentucky Rangers. Pro Concepts, who won their pool, squared off against RBI in the semis. But RBI went on to win 9-3 and win the championship.

June 22-24, Lexington and Knoxville, TN

On June 22-24thNET Elite hosted 80 teams in Lexington and Knoxville, which included the PG25 15u Regionals, and the 16u WWBA.  The Lexington event saw many curves with the weather, but Homstead Ranchers Baseball didn’t seem to mind finishing their weekend run with a record of 5-0.  Homestead battled twice against the Vipers, with Homestead being able to pull away from them both times in a great baseball matchup.  Kentucky Arsenal also had a great weekend that ended with them in the championship just barely falling short to an unstoppable Homestead team.  Overall, those three teams along with AT The Yard were your top four teams on the weekend.  The 14u event took a turn, as weather caused some scheduling changes. But Redstitch was able to advance as the one seed to meet up with Bluegrass.  Bluegrass proved to be too much for anyone as they over powered their way into the championship, becoming the eventual champions over Kentucky Arsenal.  15u Kentucky Arsenal made another strong showing for a great program but met Rawlings White in the Championship and were not able to who came away as your only undefeated team for the 15u. This event was located in the Richmond, Danville and Lexington.

The 16u WWBA represented 11 teams that were all strong teams looking for way to advance to the WWBA in Emerson for free.  Strong showings from 6-4-3 Mang and Maryland United put them as the only 3-0 teams, with both winning their first bracket game to advance to the championship.  The championship had several weather delays and showed Maryland United controlling the whole game but unable to finish it as 6-4-3 Mang team took the lead in the last inning and held on as our eventual champions.  

15u showed 30 of the best teams across the southeast.  We saw some great Baseball games and teams that represented this event well.  Cross Hit Red vs Rawlings Southeast started the tournament off with some good baseball, ending in a 5-5 tie. They got to meet up again in the championship, except this time Rawlings Southeast pulled off a 5-3 victory to win the event.  East Cobb Giants, Diamond Marucci, BC Athletics, RBI Prospects, Hustle, and Crusaders, all went undefeated through pool play or just had one loss.  With such a strong field of 15u teams, no team was able to just cruise through the pool. This event showcased many future college players and maybe even a couple potential drafts picks.  

18u pool play was owned by the Morristown Senators and Knox Stars, but the championship game was a different story. Pro Concepts was able to outlast the Stars, after losing to them in pool play and advancing to the championship against SERV Pro Canes.  Before the game could really get underway the game ended due to weather, as a big storm cut things short.

June 15-17, Nashville and Chattanooga

June 15-17 weekend showed high temperatures and the best baseball NET Elite has hosted in one weekend so far in 2018.  This weekend included 85 teams of which half played in Nashville and half in Chattanooga. The event hosted 14u PG25 Regionals in Nashville area along with the 15u.The 16u and 18u spent the weekend in Chattanooga. 

The 14u division started off with the Knights Prime out of North Carolina taking care of business and getting off to two quick wins.  Pool B featured Arkansas Prospects winning the pool with some tough match ups against the TN Bulldogs and Crusaders Baseball.  TN Athletics turned some heads with good pitching and good defense to help them move through pool play at 3-0, and all way into the championship.  No surprises here for Pool D as Rawlings SE and Crosshit Black cruised through pool play.  Complete Game Rangers and Midwest Prospects finished out as pool play winners also advancing on.  Sunday, it was the Complete Game Rangers and TN Athletics taking control, as each of them won easily advancing to the finals where Complete Game Rangers kept swinging the sticks to come out on top.

15u Division showcased a lot of future college talent highlighted by the Angels 15u, Nashville Select, MAD Mavericks, and MIdsouth Prospects.  All of which advanced on, along with LC Brawlers who proved to be tough competition.  Crosshit Black rounded out the pool play winners, all of which finished out pool play with 3-0 or 2-1.  Sunday faced some adversity, as the championship game was rained out, but not before the fans got to see baseball at its best with the Angels battling the Nashville Select Sems.  Each team showed great pitching and defense, but the Angels were able to squeeze out the 1-0 victory.  M TN Mayhem who snuck into bracket play sure to make the most out of it getting by the Mid South Prospects and giving the MAD Mavericks a scare. The MAD Mavericks v Angels was the championship game, but the day ended with rain. 

16u division was another great battle.  We show some tremendous baseball from Cross HIT Red, Titans Baseball, and RBI Tri Cities. In 16u Pool A, RBI fell just short of advancing due to runs allowed.  Which was the same thing that happened in Pool B with the Heat Baseball and Raiders Baseball. Raiders started off sluggish but took over the last three games and went on to a 3-1 record but runs allowed were just too much.  Showtime Baseball easily won their pool and made it to the championship against Cross Hit Red where rain again came into play and ended the game in the third inning leaving no winner.

18u Showed great talent all weekend from Knox New Balance, both Showtime Teams, Pro Concepts, and Prospexs.  Each one advancing along with Kentucky Rangers and TN Steel.  All 7 teams greatly deserved it and have players who will be playing in college soon.  The games of the tournament were Showtime Futures and Prospexs fighting to a tie in pool play and Knox New Balance pulling out a win in the 6th over 615 Team Mizuno by the score of 2-1.  TN Stix and Fury both competed very well but were kept out of bracket play due to runs allowed.  Bracket Play consisted of Propexs and Pro Concepts both winning very large margins and making it into the championship which also was rained out.

June 8-10 Louisville and Tri-Cities Event Recaps

NET Elite had another successful weekend, with tournaments in Louisville, KY and Tri Cities, TN.  We are proud to continue showcasing some of the finest facilities across the country. There was 65 teams playing, and for the first time in a long time the weather behaved for us throughout most of the weekend.  The Tri Cities event was able to finish all the games with no rain while Louisville made it until Sunday afternoon before the flood gates opened up.

In Louisville, the St Louis Tigers and Showtime Baseball both showed very impressive pool play wins over strong Wolves Baseball and Kentucky Rockers teams, to take the top seeding for the pool play.  Rain halted play on Sunday as the Kentucky Rockers had advanced to the championship. In the 16u division, which we were able to complete, was the tale of two teams both sweeping there pools respectively to play for the championship.  AT The Yard battled Rawlings Elite White in a game featuring the top teams. In the 18u division, it had Louisville Rampage advancing on to the championship before rain halted the Knox New Balance Game.

As for the Tri Cities events, Diamond USA, JC Rockets, and Kentucky Arsenal set the stage for top teams along with TN Athletics.  JC Rockets who showed they can play going 2-2 in pool play and took home the 4th seed.  But at the end of the weekend nobody was able to hold off of Diamond USA, whose pitching and defense kept everyone else at bay.

The 15u Division was commanded by the RBI Red Devils, while uncharacteristically we saw the Crusaders struggling to make it to bracket play.   But once Sunday hit the the Crusaders came alive and battle their way back to defeat the Red Devils and RBI Rawhide for the Championship. Westerville A’s came down here and left nothing on the table while going 3-1 in pool play and being the number 2 overall seed.

16u Division was the most balanced division of the weekend. RBI Prime got upset against TN Prospects to knock them out of the running and open up the door for RBI Tri Cities who took full advantage and won both of their bracket games.  East TN Elite who was the number 1 seed was outed by Clarksville in first round of playoffs.

17/18u division was a PG Regional event and showed off several good games, but no one could hold off Diamond Simcox, who was the only undefeated team through pool play, and carried over to bracket play finishing with a 6-0 record and taking care of business from the top to bottom.  BC Athletics also showed great poised, which helped them in winning several games and carrying them into bracket.

June 1-3, Lookouts Blast and Nashville Super 25

June 1-3 PG 25 Regionals; Nashville and Lookout Blast

June 1-3 was NET Elite’s biggest tournament to date in terms in of teams, with 147 teams playing over the weekend from 9u-18u baseball!  The event covered Chattanooga and the greater Nashville area.  This was another weekend that we battled rain though out the entire weekend. The 9-12u games were played at the beautiful Summit facility in Ooltewah. 9u had little surprises as the Trojans cruised to the top spot. Crusaders 10u was the top seed and nationally ranked Big Stixx Gamers and Young Guns filled out the 11u. Western Kentucky Outlaws and Diamond White topped the 12u. Sunday had a different outcome in the divisions before the rain ended us in late afternoon.  Gamers and Big Stixx battled it out in 11u with Big Stixx getting the win, and Diamond Gold was able to outlast Diamond White in 12u.  All the teams this weekend showed great competition and played great baseball.  

The 13u Division was made up of 24 teams and 16 major teams, but none of them could handle SWA Storm as they owned the weekend.  One of the best match ups of the weekend was the Knights vs Storm in a 4-1 game.  The Spikes also came to play this weekend and showed great poised and have a very strong team.  NC Bombsquad had a couple come from behind victories that helped parachuted them into the semifinals. There was strong baseball all around in the 13u division. 

14u was also a great division to watch this weekend, with 8 teams advancing.  Team 615 Mizuno showed that timely hitting and making plays can carry you all way to the championship game.  Crusaders 14u was the talk of the tournament winning their pool and taking three on Sunday to secure championship but it wasn’t easy, and did take some work to finally take down Team 615 Mizuno.  

The 15u Division featured some of the tournaments stronger teams.  Including Nitro winning the championship in a one-sided event against VBA Black.  VBA and Nitro both swept the field all weekend long and were meant to meet in the finals.  One of the most exciting games of weekend was twilight game Saturday night at Ootlewah between VBA Red and Diamond Academy.  Hard fought battle that determined the last team in the playoffs, with Diamond Academy edging out VBA Red. 

16u and 18u divisions were played in Nashville with a lot of talent players that will be going on to play at the next level.  RBI Prime had a standout performance by pitcher Caylan Schoiem pitching 6 innings and striking out 13 batters in the game, while throwing a 2 hit 1 run baseball game as RBI Prime won their pool along with Cross Hit Grey, Legends, Pursuit, Diamond Simcox, and Cross Hit Red to top the field.  In the 18u division Fury vs TN Twister played a Sunday morning game, that put Fury into the top of the division and on to the playoffs!  Heat Baseball, Simcox, Georgia Stars, Franklin Elite, Showtime Prospects, Knox New Balance, and the eventual champions Diamond Elite Marucci filled out the 18u field.  Diamond Elite Marucci was too hot for anyone to handle as they went 6-0 on the weekend.  Franklin Elite also had an impressive weekend, with victories over Simcox and Georgia Stars to make it to Championship Sunday.

2018 Season Kickoff - Memorial Day

IMG_2084.JPG

NET Elite had a rainy start to the 2018 season.  We opened the season with our annual Memorial Day tournament this year, hosting 52 teams.  The event was held in Knoxville and Sevierville, TN.  The 13u pool play started off rough on Saturday, as Sevier County battled rain all day.  There were a couple shining moments though, as two teams from Tri Cities finished pool play with 2-0 records as the Crusaders cruised by everyone, as well as, seeing a solid performance put up by the Boone Blazers!  Sunday had a different story to tell. The WV Patriots got off to a rough start with a 0-2 record in pool play, but they came alive on Sunday!  A combination of great hitting and timely pitching carried them through bracket play, where they beat the Crusaders in the championship to take home the hardware!

The 14u division was also held in Sevierville at Smokies Stadium.  This division showcased some great competition as many of the pool play games were very close.  Fury, Batter’s Box Black, Boys of Summer, CBC, and Lightning Baseball were the 5 teams to advance out of Pool play and into bracket play.  Unfortunately, the rain knocked us out before we could get to a championship game.

We have put together our list of standout performers for the weekend:

Redstitch – Cooper Stapleton and Tyson McFall

Generals – Jeremy Crider and Tyler Nettles

CBC Alex Nunez and Mason Murdock

Hitmen – Wes Harness

Tigers – Luke Colvin

Bash Aaron Webb

Batter’s Box- Alex Baker and Eli Jones

Fury – Mount Joy M Parker and K White

Boys of Sumer – Pete Seals

The 15u Division was held in Knoxville.  MAD Mavericks showed a lot of heart as they battled back after going down early.  Twice down late in the game they rallied and walked away with victory.  Dustin Eastmon, a pitcher for Crusaders, showed true arm strength as he ran the ball up to 85 mph! But at the end of the day there was no stopping eXposure Prime as they came to play and won their pool and advance on the bracket.  We show a lot of potential D1 prospects in this division, and eXposure Prime showcased an amazing set of arms with several touching 83-87 mph. 

Standout Performers:

Crusaders Dustin Eastmon Cole Torbett and Dylan Bartley

Pro Prodigy – Andrew Sadder, Mason Fulmer

BC Sweet – Cooper Douglass Grant Holden and Jonathan Milloway

Samurai – Jaxon Hendrix

eXposure Prime Will Poindexter Keeton Ray Cooper Kinney

323- Hunter Brown and Blake Hughes Aj Cable

The 16u Division was also played in Knoxville with strong showings from RBI Prime all the way around.  They have several great players on that team to watch.  Rain Saturday again hurt us for going into bracket play for Sunday, but fortunately we did get the games in.  With Prime, Storm, Morristown, and East TN Elite advancing on to the top four, bracket play was full of great talent and strong arms.  Jared Coffey had a strong outing for Morristown as did many of the Prime pitchers.

Here are all the results.

Belmont Rose Park

Seven teams in the 14U division converged on the Music City to combat the elements and one another. High winds and cold temperatures added to the challenges for the participating teams but by the time the dust settled, Cross Hit Black emerged as the only undefeated team, with a 2-0 record in pool play.

Cross Hit Black kept right on rolling through bracket play as the No. 1 seed, beating Boys of Summer 2-1 in a championship game that was called early due to rain. Showtime-Copely also played well, but was bested by a 5-3 margin by Boys of Summer in the semifinals.

ETSU Fall Classic

History was made in this event as RBI Prime recorded just the second perfect game in NET Elite history.  RBI Prime also made NET Elite history themselves with not only throwing a perfect game they also in the same day threw a no hitter! The three hurlers—John Beam, Alex Dunlap and Jake Wilhoit—combined for the no hitter and the three hurlers responsible for the perfecto - Matt Eubanks, Jared Coffey, and Caylan Scholem.  What an accomplishment in an event in NET Elite history or any program!  Congrats!

RBI Prime and TN Stix emerged as the teams to beat. Both squads posted unblemished 4-0 records in pool play to split tournament honors. RBI Prime also was part of the best game of the weekend, rallying with three runs in their final time at the plate to defeat the TN 2 Seamerz by a 5-4 margin in their opening game of the tournament.

The Falcons and Easley also played well over the weekend, posting identical 3-1 records.

Smokies Fall Classic

Scouts from multiple college programs were in attendance for this 17/18U event, which drew 16 teams.

The JC Braves were the cream of the crop in this one. Led by top hitter Ben Grable, the Braves held the opposition to less than three runs per game while going 4-0 in pool play to top the final standings. Garrett Wilkins was another standout for the Braves. In their final game of the weekend, the JC Braves battled the TN Mavericks in a matchup between two 3-0 teams, but the Braves prevailed in a 9-4 contest.

Five teams posted 3-1 records: the Mavericks, East TN Crusaders, the Old Hickory Generals, Fury Baseball and PSA Rawlings Prospects. Zack Joyce was a standout for the Mavericks, with his fastball topping out at 88 mph for the second consecutive weekend.

The Crusaders brought their heavy lumber, scoring 22 total runs in their two Sunday games. PSA Rawlings was led by some fine pitching backed by great defense.

Other standout performers during this event included Nick Collins and Jacob Jenniner from eXposure; Iam Campbell, Spencer Glover and Joseph Allen of the TN Mavericks; Billy Flohr and Malik Abdul for the Patriots; Chase Kirby, Ammon Murphy and Brett Potts for PSA Rawlings; MJ Sting's Matthew Harrell and Chance Merithew; the Crusaders' Banks Presson, Noah Webb and David Bryant; the Longhorns' DJ Power and Wyatt Grisskey; Josiah Carrier of Diamond Elite; Old Hickory's Walker Palmerton and Demarco Miller; the Bobcats' Jacob Goble and Garret Hamilton; Cole Harness and Noah Rasnick of Hammond Post; and Chris Caldwell and Blake Hubble of Pro Concepts.
