The 13U Cobras went 4-1 over the weekend, finishing 2nd place at the TravelBaseballSelect Ohio Major Elite Tournament at Carter Park in Bowling Green, Ohio. The 13U Cobras finished 2-0 in pool play by running ruling the Black Swamp Monsters & the Ohio Heat, and would end with a #4 seed heading into bracket play. Paxton Schwandt and Tyler Lumbard picked up the win in both pool play games.
Down early 4-0 in the first bracket play game, the 13U Cobras would chip away & take a 7-6 lead and hold on for the win. Matt Wolfe would pick up the win & Jake Miller closed out the 7th inning. In the semi-final, the 13U Cobras would be matched up against the nationally ranked Saginaw Bay Riverdawgs (MI). Jake Miller threw a complete game gem & Peyton Weiss hit a 2RBI double in the top of the 7th to prevail over the Riverdawgs 3-1 to advance the 13U Cobras to their third championship game in a as many tournaments so far this season.
In the finals, it would be a battle of the pitchers; however, a very good Motor City Hit Dogs (MI) took advantage of some misfortune to score 3 runs in the bottom of the fourth inning, and hold on for a 3-1 win.
Overall, the 13U Cobras extend their record to 13-1, and will be in Cincinnati this weekend at the Ohio Valley Classic Invite.
The 13U Cobras went 3-0 over the weekend, winning the Full-Tilt 14U Pre-Season Tournament held at Home Run Park in Kenton, OH. The Cobras outscored their opponents 27-8 in their three bracket play games. Picking up wins on the mound over the weekend was Tyler Lumbard (which was a 1-hit 6-0 shutout over the South Farmington Blues 14U out of Michigan), Jake Miller (in relief of Peyton Weiss that included a dominant 2 2/3 inning where he struck out 7/8 batters he faced in a 12-3 come-from-behind win over Full-Tilt 14U) & Matt Wolfe (where he went 4inn pitched of 1-hit shutout baseball in a 9-5 win over the Macomb Muckdogs Baseball Academy 14U out of Michigan). At the plate, Peyton Weiss led the offensive attack with 6 hits, 2 doubles & a .857 average while driving in 4 runs. Kaleb Schaffer supported the attack hitting a .657 over the weekend while driving in 3 runs. Matt Wolfe & Braydon Chilcote had 4 hits each. Paxton Schwandt swiped 11 bases & scored 7 runs. The 13U team now stand at 8-0 and will play two weekday games this week on Tuesday at Upper Arlington and Thursday at Gahanna against the Midwest Prospects.
A Cobra Clinic was held at TNT Training Academy on Saturday Jan 7th.

2 Cobra teams currently hold their indoor team workouts at TNT.
TNT is located at the corner of Shrock Rd. and Busch Blvd.
Former Columbus Cobras pitcher Mike Mayers from Grove City HS will be making his major league debut tonight with the St. Louis Cardinals Sunday July 24th at 8:00 on TV vs the Dodgers.
Mayers along with Braves pitcher Matt Wisler both played together for the Cobras 17 & 18 year old teams. Mayers played college ball at Mississippi and Wisler sign out of high school with the Padres.
Congrats to both of these super nice young men.
Making his Major League debut, Braves right hander Matt Wisler was outstanding on Friday against the Mets, as he picked up his first career win. The 22-year-old limited the Mets to one run on six hits over eight brilliant innings. He struck out two and did not issue a walk.
"I honestly felt more calm than I probably should have out there," Wisler said, per MLB.com. "I kept telling myself, 'Don't get too comfortable, because it's going to burn you.'"
The only run the rookie gave up came on an RBI single by Michael Cuddyer in the sixth inning. The last Braves to pitch eight innings in his big-league debut was Hall-of-Famer John Smoltz in 1988, against the Mets, according to the Braves radio network.
Wisler more-than-likely earned himself at least one more start, and he'll take his next turn on Thursday on the road against the Nationals.
