Some of the best teams in Texas came together in Houston for the Baseball USA Classic the first weekend in May and there was no disappointment if you were a spectator. Good ball players with good coaching, great pitching and big bats were all in the same place at the same time and this was no place for the weak of hearts.

A lot of one-run ball games; a lot of last inning heroics and when it was all said and done, the Twelve found themselves playing for the championship which ended at 10:00 p.m. Sunday night. Unfortunately, the Twelve came up a little short.

Lexington 8th grader Derek Dane pitched his 3rd complete game out of his last four appearances to help assist his team to the Championship game.
