MADISON – A local baseball team played in sweet harmony at a tournament in the Music City.

The 11U (11 years and under) Alabama Patriots baseball club won the Music City Super National Invitational Tournament in Nashville, which is in the ‘majors’ with the United States Specialty Sports Association (USSSA). Twelve teams from Alabama and Tennessee competed on June 8-9.

The Patriots team is comprised of players from Madison and Morgan counties. “The Patriots went 5-0, scoring 35 runs while allowing 22 through 5 games,” coach and team parent Jamie Hill said.

Completing homeruns were Slate Alford, 1; Caden Rose, 2; Colin Baeder, 1; Wade Passler, 1; and Dylan Ray, 2.

The Patriots team batting average is .337. The top 5 batting averages are held by Dylan Ray at .498; Caden Rose, .400; Braidden Broussard, .397; Camden Hill, .385; and Slate Alford, .371.

“All players for the Patriots have at least one homerun this year with Slate Alford leading the team with six bombs,” Hill said.

The team roster includes Slate Alford, Camden Hill and Caden Rose from Madison; Logan Morris and Avery Seaton, Harvest; Andy Hufford and Wade Passler, Huntsville; Colin Baeder and Harrison Steward, Hazel Green; Dylan Ray, New Market; and Braidden Broussard, Russellville.
