Texas Farm Division
The Texas Farm Division had a beautiful opening day. Duce Construction started the day against the Game Zone. Duce's defense was led by Louis Falco, who made a diving mid-air catch for an unassisted putout at second. Liam Fitzpatricks grand slam home run had the crowd cheering wildly as he rounded the bases. Jonathan Beiners bases-clearing hit coupled with Anthony Palamaras defensive skills made this game a heartstopper. McDonalds brought the big bats and gloves to their game with Tequila Sunrise with multiple players going 4-for-4. Edwin Pizarro had two great putouts at first, assisted by teammate Danny Lorusso, who had five RBIs, and Sebastian Dilones, who also belted two doubles and had an unassisted putout at second. Tequila Sunrise didnt lag behind. The bats of Alejandro Rivas, George R. Brockmann and Connor Magee made sure of that, each hitting ropes into the outfield. Defensively, Tequila Sunrises gloves were magnets, making three putouts at third base in one inning.
