Rebels 9/11 tribute on 09/11/2011
American Legion Baseball, from
the State level, handed down a clarification on the Junior age
matrix. Any player turning 18 BEFORE August 1st will NOT be
eligible to play on a junior legion team. Those players turning
18 before August first will be considered league age 18 and thus would
have to tryout for "A" division teams.

Rebels Split over the weekend - Follow
the Rebels on Facebook
Interesting weekend -
Played with 9 players both days, played two 9
inning games, and split.
Lost to the Nor Cal Pirates 5-0. The loss to the Pirates does
not indicate just how well Joel Duggins pitched. Joel
Duggins pitched about 6 innings and looked great! Tyler
Boone and Austin Brownfield went 1-3 on the day. Their
gun had Joel (once again) hitting the 85 mark :) In our game on
Sunday, defeated the So County team by a score of 17-0. Austin
Arbogast gave up no hits and no runs - he looked great.
Rebels Finish Foothill Tournament with Consolation
Austin Browfield behind the plate vs Eureka
The Rebels beat Redding by a score of
17-8, to capture the consolation bracket Gerald Baker gets the win. The
Rebels went 3-1 in the tournament. Austin Brownfield, Jordan Fox
and Trey Samons all hit home runs in the tournament, Trey Samons'
homerun was a 2 out Grand Slam! Gerald Baker, Austin Arbogast and Joel
Duggins all had wins on the mound this weekend. The Rebel's bats were
explosive all weekend against some of the best pitching in the North
State. Virtually every player on the Rebels team hit the ball this
weekend - these players are improving fast!
