The Plymouth Youth Baseball and Softball 12U district baseball team won the Battle for the Banner tournament in Dighton in August.
They came out on top out of 12 teams, beating Martha’s Vineyard in the semi-finals and Nipmuc Regional in the championship game. Many of these boys have played together since they were eight years old.
The members of the 12U team are Brian Pickel, Jake Isa, Reed Costa, Ryan Cyr, Nick Morano, Lucas Smith, Braxton Werner, Brandon Higgins, Liam Pearson, Seamus Murphy, Calvin Horrigan, and Ben Peruzzi.
The tournament win was a great way for these boys to end their time together as a team.
Captains Jake Isa and Ben Peruzzi led the team offensively and defensively on the weekend. The pair finished the season with 20+ homers each for the season. They will be moving up to the Babe Ruth Division.
The 12u team was coached by Head Coach Larry Peruzzi and assistants Jeff Pickel, Dave Isa, and Marc Higgins.
