It’s another strong ongoing season for the Green Hornets 10U club baseball team.
Severna Park finished the Elite Chesapeake Baseball Association regular season in first place with a 15-2 league record.
Despite falling to the Prince George’s Select Blue Sox in the CBA tournament’s championship game, the team went 3-1 in the league postseason and have achieved a 32-14-1 record through 47 games.
The team of Andy Blanck, Logan Clarke, Jonah Downey, Conner Hall, Brett Hudson, Silas Lane, Conrad Maillard, Cooper Mengel, Logan Moran, Caden Morris, Easton O’Brien and Charles Warner began the year somewhat slowly but has since improved with each week and has achieved multiple distinct accomplishments along the way.
The Green Hornets went 3-6 in March, 9-3-1 in April, 5-1 in May and 15-4 through late-June.
All 12 of the team’s players have pitched, with nine players piling up substantial innings on the mound. Severna Park is likewise balanced offensively one through 12, with a team batting average of .406.
At the Upper Chesapeake Baseball Festival in late June, the team went 3-2 and reached the championship game before falling to Howard County. The team put up 80 runs in five games, including a 30-5 win over the BCCC Warriors in the quarterfinals and a 14-8 victory over Joppatowne in the semifinals. The team batted a collective .416 in the tournament, with Blanck and Mengel both hitting home runs; Blanck’s home run was a grand-slam, and he had 10 RBI’s in the tournament. Hudson (.667 average for the tournament), Mengel (.643) and Morris (.625) led the team in batting for the tournament.
Chad Moran coaches the Green Hornets with assistant coaches Jeff Menel, Chad Morris, Bob Hall and Eric Clarke.
“Overall a great group of kids who are coachable, love the game and are fun to be around,” said Moran. “They’ve done a fantastic job representing their families and Severna Park.”
