All three teams went a perfect 4-0 on the weekend in winning their respective event.  The 13U team actually took the 14U title as played up in age division. 

​Offense was plentiful for the three champs.  The three teams combined to score 140 runs.

THE NCDB DIFFERENCE?
STAFF EXPERIENCE & RELATIONSHIPS 

NCDB was founded by individuals fortunate to have acheived careers in the Game as a way of giving back to the Game. NCDB was established as a non-profit due to the founder's concern over the rising cost of participation.  NCDB is one of the few, if only, development and/or recruiting assistance programs in the region that is not focused on maximizing revenue or profit.

NCDB helps players develop their physical skills and teaches the mental approach to the game. When age appropriate, the staff helps guide the players throughout the evaluation and recruiting process and uses its vast network of relationships throughout collegiate baseball to assist with placement in a college program.
"Players are fortunate to be part of NCDB because the people involved with the organization are experienced and the fact that they do things the right way.  I wish I had access to an organization like NCDB when I was playing high school & travel ball.” - Elliot Johnson
