The first batter Alex Armstorng hit a single to bring in the winning run. Alex Armstrong lead the Tribe with 2 hits. Drew Cole and William Cate both pitched great. Evan Novotny got the MVP award for the tournament. It was a great weekend. I couldn't be more proud of the boys.

Boys had an amazing weekend, going 3-1 to take 2nd place at Mavs Ballpark Wood Bat tournament. First one like this for each kid, and we only had 3 broken bats! It was so much fun watching them fight through the cold weather and stick it out to overcome some of the games. We went 2-0 on Saturday only giving up 2 runs which put us 1st place seed and getting first round bye on Sunday. Beat the dugout united team in the bottom of the 6th inning with a bunt/steal home from William to win the game and advance to the championship game where we ended up losing to the Wolfpack Baseball team. That game went scoreless until the 4th inning. All around a great set of games for us.
12u-Galvez finished up Frisco’s Sunday double header 2nd place in the championship, 1st place in regular season. From the Coach: We were 11-2 total with 150 runs scored, and only 48 runs allowed. They worked their tail off to get this point and I couldn’t be more proud of them.
Newcomer to the team, AJ Lopez, hammers his first bomb of the season today! This kid had five RBI’s on the day helping his team secure two victories in league play. Welcome to Tribe and congratulations on a great day to all of our 12U players!
There were more than a few Tribe teams that got rained out this weekend, but 11U Galvez made the most of it! With their game well underway and into the 4th, it got called. Both dugouts bummed, their opponent started a friendly game of *tic tac toe* (see pic). They said "why not" and went along with it. Then came the dance off. Then the REAL fun... a wet, muddy, messy game of kickball!! But it didn't stop there, but the "end" several other teams had joined and memories were made. "Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass, it's about learning to dance in the rain." -Vivian Greene
4.11.21 | Another great weekend of baseball! Tribe’s 11U Galvez team went into Sunday’s 8am game seeded 3rd after their pool play games on Saturday at Mavs Ballpark. Winning that one, the semifinals game didn’t come around until 2:30pm making for a long day. But it wasn’t over yet. After another long break, they went on to play in the Championship game but came up short of gold in the end. Coach Galvez shares, “I’m so proud of them and the way they came together as a team and rallied through being at the fields all day. They looked great defensively and outstanding offensively. They make me enjoy being their coach.” Way to go Tribe!!
"Our first game back was exactly like I expected. The chemistry these boys have is remarkable and it’s like they didn’t miss a beat at all. All the boys stayed busy through the Christmas break working on themselves and improving whatever they could. The boys, coaches, parents and myself were excited to be back out on the field!" -Coach Galvez
6.28.20 | After coming back from behind to win both first games back to back they boys made it to the ship. Played their hearts out and ended up with 2nd place in their division. All in all it was a great three days. First tournament since COVID was a success and glad it was the World Series
11.3.19 | After being visitor and being up by one run we had to hold the #1 seed to no runs being scored to advance to the ship. Bottom of the 4th inning they went 3 up 3 down to end the game. We fell short of winning the championship game but the boys played as hard as they could and I couldn’t be happier with them!
The season starts off 1-1 as the boys participate in Frisco's Sunday Double Header League.
5.5.19 | Coach Galvez shares a bit about why they chose THIS tournament for the team:
"My wife and I both hold cancer near and dear to our hearts after losing family members to different types, and to just get to be able to play in a 'Strikes Against Cancer' tournament was an honor for us. The boys are happy they get to do things like play in tournaments that have a deeper meaning, rather than just playing to win a ring/championship game."
4.28.19 | What a proud kiddo (and proud Coach)!!
Alexander Madrid hit a grand slam home run that heped his team win 18 to 3. Way go to Alexander!!
The boys start the season with their first pitching lessons of 2019.
