Solid defense has been the key to success for Coach Steve Adamson and his 14-and-under AA Next Level baseball team.
Adamson’s team, currently 5-6 in the Blue Valley Gold Glove League, was good enough for fifth place in the 10-team conference.
“Our defense has really improved during the course of the league schedule,” said Adamson. “During our early season, we had some lapses on defense but lately the team has done a much better job of backing up our pitchers.”
The team has also participated in four local tournaments and has its sights set on the state AA tournament later this month.
“Our hitting has been solid,” said Adamson. “We missed just a few key hits that that may have advanced us further in the tourneys.”
Adamson has help from assistant coaches Jeff Frase and Lee Kauffman.
Their roster includes David Adamson, Trey Bebee, Nick Bozinos, Hunter Cole, Tristen Davis, Reid Frase, Leon Gaeta, Nick Ingolia, Zak Jonas, Dutch Kauffman, Dalton Mall, Henry Savasten, and Cameron Schultz.
