FMYSA 7U American League Raptors finished the Spring season with an amazing undefeated record of 21-0! 8-0 for American division, 4-0 against National division teams, and 9-0 for tournament play. They finished the season winning the 7U city championship!

The team lead by head coach Blake Akins, pitching coach Jason Ruff, and base coach Darren Penn, was formed via a draft in February, with just four original Raptor members from previous seasons. The other seven players were picked through the draft, forming an incredible team of boys who worked hard, played hard, and truly showed their amazing sportsmanship and winning spirit.

The Raptors have been coached by Blake Akins, Jason Ruff, and Darren Penn since 2010. In those previous eight seasons, the Raptors have only lost 3 games.

Whether it was a high-five for a great hit, a “you’ll get it next time” comment to those who struck out, or even a “great game” to their opponents, these boys were taught teamwork, hardwork, and sportsman as the foundation of this great game. These boys cared about one another and never wanted to let their teammates down. That is the greatest compliment of all. Finishing an amazing undefeated season was just icing on the cake. Congratulations to the 2014 Spring American League Raptors!!
