Bellevue Blast 18u goes 5-0 in USA Preps Exposure Tourney in Pasco

Blast 2000 went 5-0 in the USA Preps Washington Instructional Camp & Tournament and finished in the top 4 teams who were all 5-0.  Team batting average was .400 with five players hitting .500 or better.  Pitchers Kaitlyn Recob and Hanako Hirai hit as well as they pitched — both hit .545 over the five games.  Three other players, Ariana Arnone, Jill Tinsley, and Ren Watanabe, also hit .500 or better for the weekend.  Charis Jones let the way with 7 RBIs with four other players, Noelle Thomas, Ariana, Jill, and Hanako tied for second with 6 RBIs each.

Amy Chen and Noelle led a solid outfield effort with 10 putouts between them, several in spectacular fashion.  Check out the pictures and a great gif of Noelle’s catch at the fence with a verbal assist from Amy.  Thank you to Eric Chen for some great pics and a great gif of Noelle’s catch of the day.

Great team builder in Pasco

This weekend was a great opportunity for many players to learn from the college coaches running the camp on Friday, then getting to play in front of them on Saturday and Sunday.  A number of coaches took interest in many Bellevue Blast players.

Saturday night dinner of grilled tri-tip was outstanding as always on trips to the Tri-Cities.  Many pictures have been posted to Facebook in an album, but here are a few from the weekend.  More will be added to the Facebook album as they get edited and posted.
