Great Lakes USSSA tryouts were held on Friday (5/6) at Berliner Park.
Columbus Cobra, Ian Hoff was selected to play on the Great Lakes USSSA 13U Baseball team. He was 1 of 4 players from Ohio to make the team. His team will be made up of other players from Michigan, Illinois & Kentucky.
The team will compete in the 2016 All American Games from August 7-13th at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Venue in Orlando, FL. We are all very proud of him & his ability to highlight his skills at the showcase after having injured his middle finger on his throwing hand very early in the tryout.
Tue May 3rd was Columbus Cobra night at Ohio State’s Bill Davis Stadium.
Cobra players from our 9, 10, 11, 12 and 13 year old teams were on the field during the National Anthem and saw the Buckeyes play The University of Alabama-Birmingham.
Prior to the game, Cobra players and their families listened to Head Coach Greg Beals deliver a message about the importance of ballplayers being mentally prepared to play and to play with a “Next Pitch, We Not Me” attitude.
Columbus Cobras go 5-0 over the weekend with back-to-back no hitters by Gavin Henry to win the semi-final & Jake Miller to win the championship game to capture their opening tournament at the King of Swing tournament in Columbus, OH.
Teams were judged based on overall record, previous tournaments, championships won, competition faced, record against ranked teams and recent performances.
Congratulations to the 2015 10u Columbus Cobras, #25 in the nation!

Coach Randy Abrams has been fighting Leukemia and is winning. We all knew he would kick its butt. This week he was declared in remission!!!! That is great news for Randy, Jess and the Abrams family.
He will continue treatments for a while longer but we have confidence in him to finish strong.
All of the 14 Cobras teams will be wearing special wristbands this season to show our organizational support for Coach Abrams. If you are interested in purchasing some of these please contact President Harry Huskey at Columbuscobras@hotmail.com.
