The Dawson County Parks and Recreation department wrapped up their 2019 8U spring baseball season with a two-game tournament in late May and, after a dramatic walk-off hit from Elliot Suhrie, the Dawson County Grey Tigers picked up their third straight championship trophy.
“The teams are distinguished by either their team colors or the head coaches last name,” Park and Rec Athletic Director Stanton Rogers said. “Generally, they are all named Tigers.”
The Grey Tigers victory marked a complete sweep of the season, as they entered the tournament as the league champions and No. 1 seed with a regular season record of 8-1 and cemented their recent dominance over the league with their third straight title under Head Coach Logan Tice.
“These boys played their hearts out every single game and continued to improve weekly between games,” team mom Leslie Shirley said. “We (The Shirley family) want to praise (Tice) and his family for his excellent coaching, friendship, and love for the kids.”
