Avalanche enjoy solid spring season
June 9, 2015
In its sixth year, Park City Avalanche Baseball continues to enjoy great seasons of spring baseball, this one highlighted by an action-packed day of home games Saturday, May 30.
The community-based competitive baseball club is fielding seven teams with 85 players ages 8-14 in the Rocky Mountain School of Baseball Super League.
Park City Avalanche President Rick Gross stated, "The goal of Park City Baseball is to teach and develop its players to understand TEAM, how to compete, sportsmanship, and baseball skills. Winning is a goal, but player development is the lifeline of our philosophy. Our success is a product of the hundreds of volunteers, both past and present. We believe that healthy youth baseball builds a healthy community spirit."
The 13U team has the best record in the club at 9-1-0, in second place in its division, according to the Rocky Mountain Baseball website. The highlight of the 12U season (4-7) includes a third-place finish in Utah Select Baseball’s Memorial Day Tournament. The 12U team is traveling to New York to compete in a Cooperstown Dreams Park tournament later this month, followed by the Triple Crown World Series tournament, which will take place in Park City July 20-25.
The 8U and 11U Avalanche teams are newer teams, focused primarily on fundamentals, this season. Both teams have made a lot of progress and are having fun. The 9U team Avalanche team is 4-6-1 and performed very well in the RMSB Pocatello Tournament the weekend of May 9. The 10U team has a 5-7 record and is looking forward to playing in the RMSB Idaho Falls Tourney June 12-13.
The 14U team is in its last season as Avalanche players and is even on reported wins and losses. The Park City Baseball 15U and 17U summer programs have kicked off with tryouts this week. These teams will play in the MountainWest Baseball Academy Summer League.
