Major World Series countdown – #7 TYJA-Suncoast Reebok
#7 TYJA-Suncoast Reebok
Great Neck, New York
TYJA-Suncoast Reebok won the Conference Championships two weeks ago. They are on a roll to end the season having won 19 of their last 24 games. TYJA is 10-8 on the baseball fields averaging an impressive 21.0 runs on and only giving up 16.6 on the big fields. They have beaten both Resmondo and Laservision on baseball fields and their resume and momentum show they can go deep into the Major World Series. Unfortunately they came up just short of improving their seeding and being able to avoid the major teams until later in the tournament. They are 3-4 vs the major division on baseball fields and 4-3 vs 'A' teams this year.
TYJA is led by an offense that can hit top to bottom and have the Conference's leading hitter in leadoff man Dennis Rulli, a veteran two hitter in Victor Cordova, and a three hitter in Dustin Roberts who has had the best season of his career.
Outlook: This team is young, fast, have a corp of left hand linedrive hitting outfielders, and have 4 or 5 guys that can play shortstop playing in the infield. They have a pitcher in TJ Thompson who works harder on the mound than any pitcher in the league. They have proven they can win a tournament that has the 16 best teams in it. No one wants to play TYJA right now.
