That's how you "watch" a ball game at MPTLL in the summer of 2013. At least when you can't be there in person. You sit and stare at Twitter and hit the refresh button every 30 seconds.
The Myers Park Trinity 11-year-old All-Star team thrilled us all with a 20-15 victory over SW Forsyth in the NC state semifinals, a win that takes them farther than any other MPTLL team in recent memory. They used 8 pitchers and hit 4 HR's - 3 by R.J. Scholtus, 1 by Jack Shaw - in this 3-hour game. Our boys have survived and advanced to the state finals, where they must beat the thorn in our side, Greenville North State, twice this weekend to reach something beyond their wildest dreams.
