Earlier in the year, the MV Heat was a finalist in the Ohio Eagles Spring Round Up. The Heat was undefeated in pool play posting wins over teams including the PA Red Hawks, 7-6; Northeast Ohio Thunder, 5-3; and the Ohio Glaciers Blue, 15-3.
The MV Heat is also in first place in the Stark Summit Baseball League’s North American Division. The MV Heat has won the SSBL in two of its last three entries.
The MV Heat has qualified and will be returning to participate in the Ohio State Championship tournaments in Dublin, Ohio later this month.
