Southside Strikers Place 3rd in Tune-up Tourney Before Disney.

Douglasville, GA

The Southside Strikers placed a disappointing 3rd in the “Beat the Heat Classic” tournament June 24-26. This was the final tournament before the Disney International Salute to Baseball tourney in Orlando Florida.

“We had a good week of practice and want to follow-up that up with a competitive tourney before hitting the road”, Coach Jones said. “We don’t want to look too far ahead because the teams in this tournament are very good.”

The “Beat the Heat Classic” featured the Atlanta Stars, West Cobb Tide, West Georgia Eagles, Central Park Bulldogs, and STEPPS’ own Southside Strikers.

Coach Jones continued, “we won this tourney last year, and I think it’s important for the team to learn to play with the bullseye on your back; we got everyone’s best game this weekend and came up a little short.”

On the bright side, the Strikers earned 9 points as they jockey for position in the GSA Georgia State rankings.
