18U Arizona Tour 2013 - Game 7
Tour Game 7 – SoCal Rays Scout Team (California)
AZ Fall Classic Game 3
The Junior Diamondblacks took on a California-based scout team from the Tampa Bay Rays MLB team.
Highlight players from the game included:
- Kohei Ueha - Great game behind the plate and went 1 for 2 at the plate
- Dewald de Klerk - 1 for 3 with a walk and a long flyball to deep centerfield
- Nick Koh - 1 for 3 with RBI and hit by pitch
- Jerome Raemaki- 1 for 5 with a run scored
A special note about the pitching staff, as the coaches went with most of the 16-year-old pitchers today against one of the best teams in the tournament, and ‘young guns’ held their own on the mound and gained a great deal of confidence. According to coaches, there were nearly 200 scouts today alone in the Junior Diamondblacks area, watching both teams and games following New Zealand’s games.
