The Mercer Island Thunder 10U select baseball team travelled to Yakima to play in the MayDay Mayhem baseball tournament. The team finished with three wins and a loss, but the tournament's highlight came in, not a win, but the form of a triple play.
In the last inning of their game, the Thunder team was up 3-2 with the opponent's runners on first and second. A fly ball was sent to right field, but Mercer Island Andrew Kaelin caught the ball and threw it to Ryan Knowles at first to tag out the runner. Knowles threw the ball to third base, where Nak Nayar caught it and tagged the last runner out to take the game.
The 2012 10U Thunder team includes: Josh Chansky, Emerson Fruehling, Chris Fuchs, Joey Gallagher, Andrew Kaelin, Ryan Knowles, Nak Nayar, Danny Scalzo, Rory Shanks, Rohan Tatum and Lukas Varney. The team is coached by Curt Varney, Tom Gallagher and Andy Shanks.
