Hard 90 Baseball has been represented by 12U teams in Cooperstown since its inception in 2005. Two times Hard 90 Baseball has won the famed Cooperstown Dreams Park Tournament with over 100+ teams from all over the world.
This year, Hard 90 Baseball will send two 12U teams to Cooperstown. This past week, the Hard 90 Crush was the first team to take the historic trip.
Led by team manager Steven Patterson, the Hard 90 Crush completed the 60+ team tournament at All Star Village with a 4-5 record - making a strong run in bracket play before rain shortened their tournament.
The Crush played 9 games over 4 days and got to see some of the top teams from North Carolina, Florida, Utah, Ohio, Illinois and Colorado. While playing top competition from all over the world is certainly a highlight, there is much more to the trip.
The 13 member Hard 90 Crush team stayed together in barracks at the ball park for 7 days. Picture a week long summer camp with your best buddies - a once in a lifetime bonding experience for sure.
The team got to visit historic Cooperstown and the Baseball Hall of Fame, participate in Opening and Closing Ceremonies, a skills competition, and trade pins with the teams from all around the world. Finally - did we mention the 200 foot fences - featuring home runs galore in the baseball games.
Current Hard 90 Owner Eric Walczykowski and Hard 90 Founder Rick Sundberg agree - this is one of the best baseball experiences that players can partake in.
