The 12-Under Connecticut Cutters baseball team from Orange had a great run at the Cooperstown Dreams Park Tournament this week winning 4 of the first six games (one with a score of 24-12!)

This incredible group of young men played their hearts out and showed great team spirit throughout the competition, but on Wednesday the ride was over when they lost the 3 p.m. game 9-5 in the single-elimination round.

We congratulate the boys on being invited to play in Cooperstown with 103 of the best teams from across the country.

Congratulations also to the coaches and parents for all they did to keep the boys grounded and making sure they had fun no matter what the outcome of each of their games.

We can’t wait to see the amazing things these boys will achieve in the future.

Following a tremendously impressive 24-12 Tuesday afternoon win, the Connecticut Cutters baseball team bowed to the Clarkstown Stars Gold 21-9 in a fast paced evening competition.

Clarkstown pulled ahead early in the game and the Orange players (Cutters) could not catch up.

We’ll have more news tomorrow as the Tournament continues. The Cutters MUST win tomorrow or they will be out of the competition since all games on Wednesday begin the single elimination process.
