Midwest Machine’s very own #12 Melisa Hadzic and her Roadrunners team (Nazareth Academy HS) are State Bound! Congrats on your SuperSectional Title and good luck at State, we will all be cheering for you! – (MM04-Hoffman)
A big thank you to the Midwest Machine players who participated in the “Essential’s Drive” benefiting Sarah’s Inn. The girls with the Organization were able to donate two SUV’s full of supplies to Sarah’s Inn to help its clients through the holiday season and the cold, winter months. Thank you to all of the neighbors and families who made this Essentials Drive such a success!
The Midwest Machine 14U Hoffman team ended up undefeated in the Melrose Park Fall League to win it all in the 16U division. With Blazers at 2nd & 3rd, 2 outs in the FINAL, #5 Sam Washkevich made a high light reel catch to shift momentum in the direction of the Midwest Machine. #5 Sam W playing SS made a phenomenal catch running backwards over her right shoulder to rob the Blazers of a single that was ticketed for left field and 2RBI. The Machine rallied from a three run deficit to walk off in the 5th beating the Blazers 12-4.
A BIG Thank You to Terry Serpico for running a terrific fall league with playoff games at the Dome at the Ball Park @ The Dome in Rosemont.
Congratulations to the Midwest Machine 14U Hoffman team who ended up taking 3rd place at the Top Gun Titan in Evansville!
