    The 11U Columbus Cobras came up a few innings short with their goal of winning a Super NIT & earning a berth to Disney's Elite 32 this weekend. The 11U Cobras went 4-1 & took 2nd place over the weekend at the USSSA Indy Festival at Indy Sports Park in Indianapolis, IN.
     
    They earned the overall #1 seed by sweeping their opponents in pool play on Saturday by a combined score of 17-0.  In bracket play on Sunday, they would beat the East Macomb Muskies 4-2 to set up a rival match against Ohio Elite in the semi-finals.  The 11U Cobras overcame a 5-3 deficit by scoring 3 runs in the bottom of the 5th to win 6-5 & advance to the finals against the Ironmen . Unfortunately, they would fall short against a really good & hot hitting Ironmen team in the finals to take 2nd place.  The Cobras 11U overall record now stands at 22-4 & will be competing in the Wayne Williams Memorial Tournament at Darree Fields in Dublin, OH.

    Q&A with Cuyahoga Community College Commit – Hunter Tome (New Albany) – Class of 2015

     

    Why did you choose Cuyahoga Community College?

    I selected Cuyahoga Community College because out of my final three college choices (Defiance College, Capital University and Tri-C), it was the best opportunity for me both on and off the field.  Tri-C is a 2 year school program which offered the educational experience I was seeking.  It is perfect for me, and the Cuyahoga baseball coach was searching for a 2015 catcher. He contacted Coach Alas, my Columbus Cobras travel coach, which shows he really needed me to join his program. 

    What role do the coaches expect you to play during your first year?

    During my first year in the program, the coaches expect me to work hard at everything and use my hitting ability to score some runs. The coach recruited me as a 2015 catcher, but considering that I'm playing a lot of left field for my high school team, I may play left field if the coach needs me in that position.

    What is your biggest strength as a player and how do you feel that will help you at Tri-C?

    My biggest strength as a baseball player is being able to be a vocal leader and take charge. As a catcher, that is a primary role I have to show each game and in practice. I feel my ability to do this will help at Tri-C. Since it is only a 2 year program, I'll have a short time to show my skills and leave my name at this school for the athletes in the future. Therefore, I have to work harder and be a leader whenever I get the opportunity. 

    Who has had the biggest impact on you as a baseball player?

    The biggest impact on me as a baseball player would most definitely be my dad. He has been right by my side starting at 9U Travel baseball when I made a great decision to leave the New Albany Eagles and go to the Columbus Cobras organization. Since then, to this day, my dad has helped me with all of my baseball decisions on and off the field. Family is a key thing to life whether it's blood related family or baseball teammates that are like real brothers to you. 

    Having been a Cobra for 8 years, what was your most memorable experience playing summer ball?

    My most memorable experience playing in my 8 years as a Cobra would be when we won the Super NIT at Berliner which gave us the amazing experience to travel to Florida and play against some pretty good competition in the USSSA Elite 32. Over the 8 years, I have made great friendships, brotherly bonds, and played against great competition that has made me better as a baseball player. I definitely will miss being a part of the Cobra organization, but I know for a fact that I will be visiting my team as often as I can make it to a game.

     

    The 11U Columbus Cobras went 4-0 over the weekend at the USSSA Road to the Elite Qualifier at Expressway Park in Cincinnati, OH.  They earned the #1 seed by sweeping their opponents in pool play on Saturday by a combined score of 14-1.  In bracket play on a wet & rainy Sunday, they beat the Cincinnati Tribe in the Semi Final 7-2 to set up a match against Hamilton Joe's in the finals.  The 11U Cobras opened up with a 5-0 lead after the first inning & held on to win 9-1. Strong pitching & defense, as well as timely hitting over the weekend got them their second ship in as many tournaments of the season.
     
    The Cobras 11U team will get their first true test of the season this weekend as they travel out of state to Elizabethtown, KY to compete in the Kentucky Major Elite TNC Qualifier. They open up pool play Friday night against the Indiana Bulls & turn around on Saturday to finish pool play against the Motor City Hitdogs & Dulins Dodgers.
