At first look, one would think that the 16-U Sox struggled again in their second season, however, when you factor in the fact that they played over half their games against 18-U opponants, you may reconsider that statement.
The 16-U Sox never fretted as they took the role of David versus Goliath for the better part of their 2002 campaign. They defeated two of the 18-U opponants they faced, tied one and played very tough against the powerful Colorado Rockies Scout team before losing 3-1.
The Red Sox finished second in two of the four 16-U tournaments that they played in, the Pretzel City Classic and the Slugger’s Ball in Richmond, VA.
