Baseball U for the 12 straight year attended the Perfect Game WWBA World Championship. Only two New Jersey teams can claim this honor.
Baseball U brought a team of 20 players down to the largest scouted event in amatuer baseball composed of 16 commits which was made up
of 16 2020 Grads, 3 2021 Grads and 1 2022 Grad.
Baseball U allowed only 5 runs in bracket play while scoring the most runs in bracket with 15.
During the playoff run the team entered the 32 team playoff field (93 Invite Only Field) facing Team Northeast a team composed of some of
the best players organized from various northeast teams who did not have a bid to Jupiter. Baseball U took the lead early and did not look
back with a 6-2 win.
In the Sweet 16 round Baseball U again would face an opponent who they lost to in bracket play 4-3 in the Dirtbags. In the Sweet 16 game Baseball
U and the Dirtbags showed some some great pitching and defensive plays. Baseball U hurt themselves in the 5th inning with back to back infield
throwing errors allowing 1 run to score. In the 6th inning Baseball U had runners on the corners with 1 out when a flyball to right field set up a
tagup play where a controversial call had the tagging runner from 3rd base called out at home ending the inning. Baseball U did not push a run
across in the game after threatening several times event with a ball that was hit to the fence for a possible HR that fell inches short falling 1-0 to
the Dirtbags who went on to play in the Championship game.
The team was built on pitching, speed and defense. There were many bright spots for the group both offensively and defensively.
On the offensive end the team placed 6 players on the All Tournament Team Hitters
Ethan Anderson .462
David Coppedge .357
Ryan Lasko .500
