The prospects are a 9U Non-Profit Travel Organization out of Culpeper, VA. Tired of dealing with the hustle and bustle of big organizations worried about money, they created a non-profit organization for the kids and parents to save money and allow them to grow their love for the game!
We are blessed with being able to help them pay for their tournaments and some needed expenditures.
Season doesn't stop once the cold hits. We move indoors and continue working on the things that will make us better on the field. Speed and Strengthening helps everyone in every aspect of baseball. Parisi Speed and Agility was a huge help this year making our boys quicker and stronger out of the gate!

Overall Record on the Day 1-1-1 - 2nd Place - Silver Flight 9u Open
Game #1: Prospects vs Raiders 12-12 Tie With a slow start in game one we allowed 8 runs in the first inning, but only allowing 4 runs total after the bad start. Getting our heads right we ended up battling hard for a 12-12 tie in first game of Pool Play.
Game #2: Prospects vs Classic Crusaders 20-6 Win After seeing what we did wrong and talking it over in between games, we got our bats and base running rolling. Out of the gate we put up 6 runs in the first inning, and never looked back. With solid defensive pitching and plays we ended pool play with a 20-6 victory against a young talented team.
Game #3 - Silver Flight Championship HB Sports vs Bomb Squad 14-15 Loss A defensive game until the end. Up until the 3rd inning the score was 0-2 Bomb Squad. Finally finding our bats after a long hot day on the diamond, we put 8 runs up in the 3rd. In the 4th Inning we had a fantastic 3 up, 3 down inning and managed to squeeze another 2 runs for a 10-2 lead. Going into the 5th we only needed 3 outs to shut em down and take the win. The sun finally got to us, and the Prospects allowed 9 to give them BS a 10-11 lead. Into the last inning we went and our bats came back putting up 4 runs and another chance to shut em down. Bomb Squad found another wind, and put up a 4 run inning of their own to beat us 14-15 in the Championship Game.
After the Championship game and the awards ceremony, the coach of Bomb Squad came to our boys and told them the Prospects had made a name for themselves today, and they're on everyones radar now. Respected, Beaten, and Tired they took second place in an extremely long first tournament day.
