The Bellaire Bats 12U select team (pictured) won a recent championship at Westbury Little League. The boys defeated the West University Scrappers, 13-3, to win the championship title. Colin Sloan hit a homerun in the first inning, and every player on the team had at least one hit in the final game. Throughout the tournament, the Bellaire Bats run ruled each team they played. Team manager Keith Harrison created the team in 2011, and most of the original players are still on the team today. The tournament champs are (top row, from left) coaches Cullen Hay, Keith Harrison and Scott Evans; (middle row, from left) Seth Broadwell, Quinn Harrison, Roman Williams and Colin Sloan; (bottom row, from left) Trey Russo, Griff Hay, Jake Haysley, Matthew Evans and Dylan Taylor.
