Sheffield’s earned the right to play for the “gold” by defeating David’s Trophies on Monday in the semifinals of the Carter County League tee-ball tournament.
A nine-run first inning led to a 23-17 win that places the Constructioneers in the championship game tonight at 6:30.
D-T couldn’t extinguish the red hot bats of Sheffield’s in the opening inning. Eleven players went to the plate and 10 collected base hits and scored.
Haley Marlowe, Eli Guess, Jaylen Hardin, Jackson Deyton, Kash Kelley, Collin Deyton, Landon Sheffield, Logan Gonzales and Daisy Hill each crossed the dish and hit safely. Autumn Sheffield drove home a run as well.
The big blow was a grand slam home run by Sheffield’s last batter in the order, Kaleb Gonzales.
