The Columbus Baseball Invitational

On May 18-20, 2014, the TABC Storm base­ball team participated in the 5th annual Colum­bus Baseball Invitational (CBI). A total of nine ye­shiva high schools from across the United States participated in this three-day event. The sched­ule included a Lag B’ Omer bonfire and bar­becue, as well as much baseball and tefillah b’tzibbur. This unique experience allowed the TABC students, as well as the other teams, to par­ticipate in a baseball tournament as most other baseball tournaments take place over Shabbat.

The tournament was typical high school style with each game lasting seven innings. TABC played three games and finished in 6th place with a record of 1-2. Game 2 was quite an exciting win as TABC was down 5-1 going into the bottom of the 7th. With two outs and no­body on base, they came from behind to win with a walk-off. The final score was 6-5.

Even with the long bus ride each way, this was an exciting and rewarding experi­ence for the entire team. Special thanks go to coach Norm and assistant coach Jason Katz for their tireless devotion to the team.
