The 10U Bellaire Braves
The 10U Bellaire Braves tournament baseball team (pictured) celebrated a hard-fought win after earning first place in the Baseball USA Spring Classic tournament. On the way to the champion title, the Braves competed against 22 teams from both the Houston and Austin areas. In the final game, the Braves defeated SSK1 Crew of Tomball, 10-6. The championship game happened to be on manager Ryan Loving’s birthday, and his son, Luke, gave him a great gift: a grand-slam homerun. The champs are (top row, from left) manager Ryan Loving, coach Murray Kalmin and coach Jeff Gorski; (middle row, from left) Marco Quintanilla, Luke Loving, Nico Broyles and Nathan Kalmin; (bottom row, from left) Hayden Summers, Liam Miller, Ryan Richter, Preston Gorski, Nick Gillette, Hudson Zach and Zac Selzer.
