The Stix 11U Hitmen
The Stix 11U Hitmen (pictured) brought home the trophy from the 2020 Perfect Game Texas All State Championship at Baseball USA. Each of the five tournament games was competitive, but the Hitmen sealed the win with an 8-0 shutout in the championship game. Jackson Lindsey pitched a no-hitter to wrap up the series. The players, who attend Condit Elementary School, Horn Elementary School and St. Thomas’ Episcopal School, have been together for a few years, and look forward to more tournaments in the future. The Hitmen are (bottom row, from left) Collin Steinberg, Tate Cunningham, Luke Lenhart, Jackson Lindsey, Rubaine Singh, Nate Promubol, Zach Cowles, Vance Bourg, Joaquin England, Ben Chapin and (top row, from left) coaches Abe Garcia and Juan Garcia.
