The Oak Park Windmills 10U Chambers team did an amazing job this past weekend in the Roselle Rockers Fall Classic.  Weather prevented them from playing their pool play games on Saturday. They arrived at the field at 9am and got ready to play, but the floodgates opened and it poured down rain. They were cold and soaked, but not complaining.

They came back the next day for a marathon session of four games spanning 12 hours. They defeated the Bash Bombers 5-2 in their only pool play game which placed them first in their pool. They defeated the 9U Windmills team 11-1 and the Plainfield Twisters 5-4--in extra innings--to advance to the championship game. Unfortunately, they couldn't pull out the win, falling 6-2 to Top Tier.

Some individual performances of note for the day:

  • Caroline L.: Pitched 2 games totaling 6 innings, threw 103 pitches, struck out 8, had an ERA of 3 and a WHIP of 1.667.
  • Molly C.: A true ironwoman, pitched in 3 games totaling 12 innings, threw 182 pitches, struck out 20, had an ERA of 2.5 and a WHIP of 1.417.
  • Maddie E.: Went 8 for 12, with 5 singles, 2 doubles and a triple, driving in 4 and scoring 3 times.
  • Jordan A.: Went 5 for 8, with 4 singles, 1 double and 2 walks, drove in 4--including the extra inning game winner--and scored 3 times.

The coaching staff was beyond pleased with how well the girls performed and also thank the parents for sticking it out on such a long day.
