Hitmen 12U Team Wins World Series Title

The South Florida Hitmen 12U travel baseball team recently won one of the most highly sought-after titles in the country, becoming the 2015 USSSA Elite World Series 12U Champions.

Every year in late July, the USSSA Wilson DeMarini Elite World Series brings together the country’s top 32 teams for eight days of tournament play at the ESPN Wide World of Sports complex in Orlando. The South Florida Hitmen made their way past top teams from Texas, California and Tennessee, entered the championship game against Team Siege out of Miami.

The South Florida Hitmen were able to put two runs on the board in six innings, while holding Team Siege scoreless to take the crown. Braden Calise scored twice, had one home run and pitched a shutout inning, while Chandler Marsh pitched five straight shutout innings and was named the Elite World Series MVP.
