As a wrap up to the baseball season, the TTBC has historically taken several teams to the annual Shanghai Slam in May. The Shanghai Slam is a competitive tournament across all divisions and this year was no exception. The TTBC sent the 14U Eagles who played 5 games over the weekend. The 14U Eagles stayed at the Marriott Pudong East.
The 14U Eagles finished 2nd in Shanghai, winning three games and losing two. The four-team field featured the Shanghai Sluggers and two squads from the MLB Development Center.
The 14U Eagles easily dispatched the host Sluggers, and beat the MLB B squad twice by one run, including a thrilling 2-1 victory in the semifinal.
The 14U Eagles also played the A squad tightly, falling 5-3 in pool play and maintaining a 0-0 tie in the championship into the third inning. Unfortunately, the 14U Eagles fell at the end, but very proud to take home silver medals.
