The 11U West University Wranglers (pictured) were undefeated and won the USSSA’s Octoberfest Blast Off baseball tournament. The championship game versus Bucs Navy of Lake Jackson was tough, and after ending the innings in a tie, the teams moved onto a tie-breaker format called the Texas Shootout. The Wranglers repeatedly chanted, “I believe that we will win!” and they did just that. The champs are (top row, from left) coach Paul Equale, coach David Ranucci, manager Shawn Vacek and coach Chip Edgecomb; (middle row, from left) Alex Yearwood, Knox Vacek, William Suell, Evan McCarthy and Luke Edgecomb; (bottom row, from left) Zach Gosda, Jackson Ranucci, Alec Schaefer, Anthony Equale and Michael O’Brien.
