(March 2, 2018) During their first tournament of the season in Orlando, Florida, the 10-player Delmarva Aces traveling baseball team, comprised of 9-year-olds from Berlin, came in second place and took home a huge trophy on President’s Day weekend, Feb. 17-18.

“The fact these kids from Maryland, who only play outdoors for six months of the year, did so well is phenomenal for the Aces organization and sets the tone for the rest of the season,” Assistant coach Tripper Heckscher said. “Pitcher Daylen Linton threw a no-hitter in the semifinals. He had 15 strikeouts in six innings.”

The Aces won three games in the “President’s Day Challenge,” but lost in the finals 11-4. There were 10 teams competing and the others were local to the home state.

“Kids in Florida play year-round and it was phenomenal to go down there and do so well,” Heckscher said. “I think the trophy was taller than all of them.”

The boys have seven more tournaments to look forward to between now and the end of June, with most of the games taking place in Fruitland and in Georgetown, Delaware, but there will also be a few over the bridge in Aberdeen, Maryland as well, he said.
