A resolution recognizing the Bellevue Bulldogs 12 and Under Baseball All-Stars for winning the Cal Ripken Babe Ruth District Championship.
WHEREAS, the Bellevue Bulldogs 12 and Under Baseball All-Stars have persevered through inclement weather, unfamiliar playing conditions, and tough competition to claim the Cal Ripken District Championship in their age division; and
WHEREAS, crushing the Franklin Diamond Dogs (12-2), the Crieve Hall Red Sox (14-4), the Grassland Gators (15-1) the Brentwood Bolts (8-3) and the Nolensville Stars (8-5) the Bellevue Bulldogs outscored their opponents 66-20 to claim the Middle Tennessee District Tournament; and
WHEREAS, with stifling pitching, blanketing defense and a powering offense, the Bellevue Bulldogs All-Stars romped through the District Tournament beating the Brentwood Bolts for a second time (9-7) to win the championship and advanced to the 2006 Tennessee State Cal Ripken Babe Ruth Tournament; where they earned Fourth Place, and
WHEREAS, the precision, exceptional team play, dedication and sportsmanship of this championship team are Jackson Cothren, Brandon Foriest, Hayden Hendrick, Taylor Hendricks, Matt Kordowski, Ben Lovell, Russ McDaniel, Tanner Newton, Blade Pressley, Tyler Proctor, Ryan Tate, James Williams; and
WHERAS, the Bellevue Bulldogs All-Stars benefited greatly from the expertise, hard work, and dedication of coaches Jack Cothren, Robbie Hendrick, and Tom Lovell, who taught these young men many valuable lessons about baseball and life; and
