Myers Park 12's Win NC State Title

The Myers Park Trinity 11-12-year-old All-Star team won the North Carolina State Little League Championship on Saturday at Myers Park with a 5-3 victory over Greenville Tar Heel. Their state title is MPTLL's first Major League state championship in baseball in the league's long history. It came less than a week after MP's first state championship of any kind at the Little League Baseball level, when the 10-11-year-old team won its tournament in Forest City.

Myers Park took the lead for good in the 2nd inning on a 2-run HR by Patrick Alvarez. Alvarez also pitched the game's last 4 innings, striking out 8 - including the final 6 outs of the game - allowing no runs on 2 hits. Pres Cavenaugh, Britt Fuller and Alvarez led the MP offense with 2 hits apiece.

Next up for the 12's will be a trip to the Southeast Regionals in Warner Robins, GA. The winner of that tournament goes to the Little League World Series in Williamsport, PA.
