The first weekend of June means it is time for the Renegades to travel to Chillicothe (Peoria area) for the Brad Wallin Memorial Tournament in support of St. Judes Children’s Hospital. Over the last 14 years, the tournament has raised over $382,000 in support of the hospital.
All four teams and their families traveled to the tournament and enjoyed great weather and some exciting baseball. The 11u team jumped out to a great start by winning their first two games and moving into the championship bracket before running into a tough team out of central Illinois. The team had a great time for their first trip to Chillicothe.
The 12u team had a great run! They made it all the way to the championships in the consolation bracket before falling to a strong Tinley Park team 11-10.
The 13u team made it all the way to the semifinals by scoring 5 runs in the final inning of an exciting game against the Canton Diamond Devils.
The 14u team featured the Home Run Derby Champion (Jack Miller) and the Speed Burner Runner-Up (Tyler Houck)!
