The Foothill Gators beat the Outlaws Thursday evening (11/20) to claim the title of 2003 SEV Babe Ruth 16U CHAMPIONS. It was a total team effort with standout plays by: Roy Meeter, who pitched a complete 7 inning, 1 hit shut-out highlighted with 14 strike-outs. Eddie Robles was excellent behind the dish calling a great game and executing a critical throw-out at third base. The eventual winning run came in the bottom of the 6th when Patrick Barnes led off with a sharply hit line drive to right field sending him all the way to second base. Next, Jon Stitzinger laid down a perfect infield bunt which also also sent Patrick to third base. Next came the score... The Reliable Billy Watson executed a perfect sacrifice bunt as Patrick Barnes came charging home on an exciting suicide squeeze play. Congratulations to Patrick Barnes, Brian Franz, Collin Harmon, Brian Johnson, Brad Knight, Roy Metter, Chase Meyers, Nick Oliver, Mike O'Neil, Pat O'Neil, Devin Reginato, Eddie Robles, Jon Stitzinger, Billy Watson, The Gator Coaching staff, Parents and Fans!
