GTL Takes The A

GTL

This years "A" Worlds had some shocking upsets, some great games, and some familiar teams battling it out in the end. And in the end it was the same two teams fighting it out for the championship, Jean Shoppe and GTL. The 2009 Class "A" World Champions is….GTL/Creative Stucco/Worth/Elite out of Washington!

GTL won the "if" game in dominating fashion 21-3 to win the title. GTL went 5-1 on the weekend and was led by the pitching of MVP Chad Munger and defensive MVP middle infielder Brian Blount who combined to turn countless doubleplays! Some other all tournament selections for GTL was hot hitting leadoff man Rick Sedlacek, Donovan Pokraka, Kevin Filby, Sam Lopez, Anthony Dress, and player sponsor Don Wilson. Some interesting notes: Rick Sedlacek won a title with Jean Shoppe in 2008. Kevin Filby has now won like 5 class "A" World Tournaments, and Brian Blount adds this years Defensive MVP to his 2008 Offensive MVP award. I guess next year Brian is a shoe in for MVP? After a rough year by GTL I would like to say congratulations to the sponsorship group of Charles Garcia, Doug Reed, Don Wilson, Worth, manager Jose Sanchez, and the entire GTL team for a well deserved championship! Donny I guess you actually can flip the switch!
