The Cincy Flames represented well this week in GA taking 1st place in 2 of the 3 events. And 2nd in the other. There were 3 skills competitions.
The first was a team "Around the Horn" competition. Here, they timed the boys throwing the ball around the horn to every position ending with a throw from the left fielder to home. We had 2 chances. An overthrow ended our shot at a good time on our first round. But the boys regrouped on the 2nd round with 3 score saving scoops finishing with a :22 second WINNING time!
Up next was the "Golden Arm" competition where we had 4 participants. The boys were thrown a fly ball in center field where they had to catch it and then throw the ball at a target at home plate. Again, all the boys represented well. But it was our own Rex Richter WINNING the competition with a dramatic "throw off" vs a GA Yard Dog kid. It was awesome!
and last was the HR Derby contest. Our own Davis Campbell (4 homers) and Zach Schultz (6 HRs) were 2 of the 5 boys to advance to final round. Here, Zach hit 5 HRs to take 3rd place and Davis hit 8 HRs to take 2nd place.
