This past month the Bakersfield Akadema Heat 11's Baseball team has been on fire playing in National 11u Baseball Tournaments. In March, the Heat competed in the USSSA Spring Nationals SNIT in Gilbert Arizona. The Heat went 5-1-1 losing in the Championship game 11-10 in extra innings against the #1 nationally Ranked SGV Hustle.
After a superior performance in Arizona, the Heat was invited to this past weekends USSSA 11u Las Vegas Super Elite Invitational. The Heat went 5-0-1 in bracket play to just come up short at the end again losing to Nationally Ranked Team Mizuno in the finals.
The Heat 11's have been dedicating this year to trying to compete in the most difficult tournaments to get the boys the most exposure and best competitive baseball experience. With these past two great performances, USSSA has ranked the Bakersfield Heat 11's #1 in Southern California for power rankings and #4 in the United States based on power rankings.
Great job boys! You have worked very hard and deserve the national attention!
