Antelope Valley Press - - SPORTS - Val­ley Press

The Nat­u­rals Base­ball Club 10-and-un­der travel ball team won the cham­pi­onship at the MLK Clas­sic in Moor­park the week­end of Jan. 18-20. It was the first tour­na­ment af­ter the win­ter break for the team of 11 play­ers and four coaches.

The tour­na­ment started out a lit­tle rough for the Nat­u­rals as they dropped the first game to Prime from Agoura Hills, 13-10.

But the team bounced back to win its next three con­tests, in­clud­ing the cham­pi­onship game where they got to avenge their early loss.

The Nat­u­rals de­feated the Moor­park Muskies 20-0 and fol­lowed with a 13-9 vic­tory over the Ca­mar­illo Aces, which set them up for the ti­tle game against Prime.

The Nat­u­rals trailed 9-0 against Prime in the cham­pi­onship game, but chipped away at the deficit un­til they tied the game 14-14 in the sixth in­ning, which was the last in­ning, to force ex­tras. The Nat­u­rals won 15-14 in ex­tra in­nings.

The play­ers all re­ceived cham­pi­onship rings.

Their next tour­na­ment will be this Satur­day in Ca­mar­illo for the Su­per Bowl Satur­day Tour­na­ment.

The team is coached by Mike Mis­cione, Ja­son Gorman, Dan Gorman and Vince Or­tiz. The play­ers are Gavin Gorman, Adrian Til­iano, Noah Downs, Chris­tian Icaza, Ja­son Cowan, Braden Maine, Vin­nie Or­tiz, Beck­hem Mis­cione, Parker Medlin, Nolan Jones and Nash Lan­don.
