14U Hoffman Goes Undefeated in MP 16U Fall League


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.
