STEPHENVILLE (July 2, 2015) — For the first time in about two decades officials believe, there is an unbeaten champion in the Stephenville Parks and Recreation Department 15U baseball league.

The Mets, whose head coach is Joe Wehnert, made it through the regular season and championship tournament with a perfect 12-0 record, and are moving on to district play in Colorado City the fourth weekend in July. They will be joined in district by the second-place Mongooses.

“We have a good mix I think. We have a bunch of younger kids and a few older kids. We play real well together and we’ve meshed more and more as the season has gone along,” said Coach Wehnert. “Our kids have a lot of heart and they know the game well for kids their age.”

Coach Wehnert says on any given night a different Met could be the one to step up and lead the way.

“I have a couple distinctual leaders on the field, but really we have a lot of contributors,” Wehnert said. “Tyler Draper, Anthony Wehnert and Sid Davis are the most instinctual players on the team and the leaders on the field. Then we have a some real clutch players in Tyeler Reed, Gabe Moore and Chase Griffin. A couple of the older veterans who stepped up and had a great year are Freddi Martinez and Bradley Johnson. The others are brand new rookies this season who have a bright future in baseball, and they are Adrian Montano Cooper Vandenburg and Austin Graham.”

Perhaps the biggest moment of the regular season for the Mets came when pitcher Sid Davis completed a no hitter, said Coach Wehnert, a letter carrier for the United States Postal Service who is assisted by Hector Davis, Jamie Moore and Danny Reed. They hope to make more good memories in the district tournament.

“We’ve added three players from other teams to help us, so I’m hoping they mesh well with our guys. I think they will, they’re all friends and good ballplayers,” said Coach Wehnert. “We just have to mesh as well as we have all year and play good, smart baseball. We have kids on the team that could probably play varsity baseball right now. I really look forward to getting to Colorado City because I think we’ll do well there.”
