Minnesota Tournament Play Outlasts Travelers Efforts


Last weekend the 11-year-old (full-time) Elk Grove Travelers (30-18) were off to Minnesota to participate in the Woodbury 2000 A Invitational Tournament.

In qualifying round action the Travelers faced the Panthers from Huska, Minn., and displayed some potent offense led by Ricky Szkorla (2 doubles, single, 2 RBIs), Jeff Smith (2 singles, walk, RBI), Austin Henke (2 singles), Donny Carfagnini (1B, 2 RBIs), Dom Corpolongo (1B, RBI), Austin Wright (1B, RBI), Billy Montemayor (1B, SF, RBI), Brad Allen (1B) Matthew Morley (walk, HP, RBI) and tough pitching from Brad Allen, Ricky Szkorla and Austin Henke to win the game 12-4.

Game two was against another Minnesota team from Hastings, but unlike the last game the Traveler bats were silent until a 2-run last inning rally fell short in the 5-4 defeat. Fine pitching from Austin Wright and Billy Montemayor and the hitting of Jay Laing (2B, 1B), Matt Collins (3B, 2 walks, RBI), Ricky Szkorla (1B, RBI), Austin Wright (2 singles) and Austin Henke (SAC, RBI) made for an exciting game.

With the split of the two games in the qualifying round, the Travelers advanced to the championship round. Needing a victory to continue in the tournament, Elk Grove got an outstanding pitching effort from Brad Allen, Ricky Szkorla and Austin Wright, but a rival Mid Suburban Baseball League opponent, the Northwest Travelers, outdueled the Elk Grove Travelers 1-0 in a rain- shortened four-inning game, eliminating the Travelers from the tournament.

The next stop on the tournament schedule for the 11-year-old (full-time) Elk Grove Travelers, with a 34-19 record, was the Palatine 2000 Tournament.

In the first round against the McHenry County Hurricanes, the Travelers got off to a fast start scoring four times in their half of the first inning, including a 2-run homer by Ricky Szkorla (HR, 1B, 3 RBIs). The Hurricanes rallied twice in the fourth and seventh to close to 2 runs, but that was as close as they got as the Travelers hung on for a 7-5 victory.

The other hitting stars were Matt Collins (1B, HP, 2 RBIs), Austin Wright (1B, 2 RBIs) and base hits from Jay Laing, Brad Allen and Dom Corpolongo. The pitching was handled by Ricky Szkorla, Billy Montemayor, Austin Henke and Austin Wright.

In the second game the Travelers put on an offensive show, defeating the Schaumburg Seminoles 14-2. …
