The 11u NE Knights enjoyed a memorable trip to Walt Disney World's ESPN Wide World of Sports over the Labor Day Weekend.

The Knights started off the tournament by drubbing The US Virgin Islands team 17-3 in a well played game led by the 2 home runs and 6 RBi of Aidan Larkin.

On Saturday the Knights were left on the field after surrendering a 2 run lead in the last inning to the Lakeland Wolf Pack. A well played game by the Knights featured a furious comeback in the 3rd inning all with 2 outs.

The 2nd game of the DH, the Knights never really recovered form the first loss and were trounced by the eventual tournament champion McLean (VA) Nationals.

In pool play, the Knights drew the McLean Nationals again on Sunday and trailing by 2 in the last inning, were unable to capitalize on a bases loaded and one out situation which would have left the Nationals headed to the consolation game.

It was a wonderful week of baseball and fun in beautiful facilities. It was an experience of pure enjoyment for players, coaches and families alike.
