Blacksox 17U Advance to Mattingly Bracket Play

The Burkburnett Blacksox 17U team advanced to bracket play in the Don Mattingly World Series, defeating the hometown Arizona D'Backs Red 3-2 at the Tempe Diablo Stadium complex in Tempe, Arizona.

The win, over the same team the Blacksox beat for the national title last year in New Mexico, put them through to the bracket round.

Despite losing in the Mattingly state tournament a few weeks ago in Burkburnett, the Blacksox earned an at-large berth to the national tournament by virtue of their win last year.

They went 3-1 in pool play, including a win over the same DBAT Mustangs team that beat them in the state tournament.

Late Thursday night they played another D'Backs team in the first game of bracket play.

Win or lose, they will play again Friday morning at 11 a.m. Arizona time, or 1 p.m. Texoma time.
