Intermediate baseball advances to state
The Fredericksburg Youth Baseball Association’s All-star teams have seen successes and faced adversity in the past week.
The Fredericksburg Intermediate (50/70) Baseball All-stars advanced to state competition.
The Major Softball All-Stars saw success when they won their district tournaments and advanced to sectionals.
The members of the Junior Softball All-stars failed to close out a game, and they finished in second place in their district tournament and saw their season end.
Fredericksburg’s Junior All-star baseball team opened its district tournament at Ingram High School with a game against Burnet/Bertram on Saturday night.
The FYBA team was able to beat the combination of Burnet/Bertram 12-4.
The juniors received outstanding pitching from Grayson Lee, said manager Jim Davis.
Helping Lee with defense was Wade Davis who made some key stops at third base.
Hits were contagious for the FYBA as all the players had a good night with the bat in their hands.
“Everybody hit amazing,” said Davis.
The win advanced the juniors to a game against Llano on Monday night. That game was originally scheduled for Sunday, but was delayed because of weather.
Further information on junior baseball was not available at press time, but will be included in the next Fredericksburg Standard-Radio Post issue.
FYBA Junior Softball All-stars opened its district tournament play against Burnet/Bertram on Thursday, June 27. FYBA won 16-4. The game was ended after five innings when the 10-run rule was enforced.
On Friday night, the junior softball All-stars squared off against the All-star team from Wimberley. Fredericksburg lost that game 16-3.
