USSSA team attains top state & national ranking


   They breathe baseball and bleed success! The Virginia Sports Complex [VSC] 13 and under double-A Baseball Academy baseball team is the number one USSSA team in the state of Virginia and the number one team in the country.
   Based on a USSSA tournament point system, the team has rocketed itself to the top of its atop the
Currently the VCS have a 28-3 in class record and a 34-14 overall record, that includes several tournaments wins during the spring season. During the 2009 spring season, they will play in 13 tournaments, including at trip to Rocky Mount, North Carolina in May. They plan on finishing the season as finalist in the USSSA 13 and under World Series in July.
   Versatility and the ability to play high-level baseball is the key to their game plan. As a team, their present batting average is .467. The entire roster is featured in the batting order; manager Michael Hundley frequently replaces each player as each game unfolds. “Our primary focus is to develop athletes for high school baseball, stress fundamentals, and focus on the advanced skills needed for high level baseball.
   Also, although four players are missing from last season’s roster, the nucleus of the VSC team is still in place.
   The upstart stars from Ruther Glen, Virginia are no strangers to the state and national spotlight. As a 12 and under team during the 2008 spring season, they accumulated 46 victories and two tournament championships.
   Later during the fall, during their 13 and under debut, the team compiled 14 wins out of a 25-game format, that included six appearances in tournaments, which yielded two second place finishes and three third place finishes. In addition, they also finished fourth in another series of games featured in tournament play.
   The following players are featured in tournament play.
   The following players are featured on the 2009 VSC Baseball Academy 13 and under roster: Cody Bell, Jonathan Didlake, Jared Dorton, Dustin Dunton, Jordan Estes, Corey Hall, Michael Hundley, Matthew Hunt, Zachary Kegley, Justin Pitts, Brian Schmied, Zachary Smith, Ethan Steele. Managers include: Michael Hundley [Head coach], George Estes [Assistant coach], Steve Kegley [Assistant coach], Ryan Carroll [Assistant coach], Mike Mallory [VSC Director of Baseball], Mike Smith [Manager].
   Ryan Carroll is a King George High School graduate, and a former District standout in baseball.
After qualifying to play in the Triple Crown World Series in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, the VSC placed second in the Silver Bracket format.
    VSC baseball program is continuous throughout the year, whereas the spring program begins in May and ends in July, and the fall portion of the season begins in August and ends in November.
Call it baseball fever, or a collaboration of athletes with a common interest in America’s favorite pastime—whatever description you end up with, it surely will have success as a common denominator. Factoring in the family concept of sportsmanship, and the unique atmosphere that the Virginia Sports Complex in Ruther Glen, Virginia continues to embrace, Hundley and his assistants may have a formula for grooming tomorrow’s high school stars.
