RECO 55s

Missouri Open – June 3rd and 4th, 2017 (Columbia, Missouri)

The boys from RECO continued their impressive play in the 2017 tournament campaign with a 2nd place finish in the Missouri Open.

After an opening loss to the Indiana All Stars, RECO ripped off three straight wins against the KC Renegades, Triple Crown, and a lot of familiar faces on the Nebraska 60s (JW Wood Floors).

Oil City Classic – May 6th and 7th, 2017 (Tulsa, Oklahoma)

The RECO bats were on FIRE at the Oil City Classic in Tulsa as the team posted a 2-0 mark in pool play on Saturday scoring 41 runs and getting the # 1 seed heading into bracket play.

The team battled against JR Logistics out of Arkansas, a higher category team, in the first game on Sunday and held their own by pushing across 16 runs across 7 innings. However, the 16-16 tie was broken when the Logistics clean up guy belted a two-run walkoff homer in the bottom of the 7th.

The heartbreaking loss didn’t dampen the spirits of RECO though as they pushed across 38 (yes, thirty-eight) runs against a AAA team from Amarillo, Texas in game 2 to win by nearly 3 touchdowns.

In game 3, the RECO squad went up against a team full of friends from the NSS league in the form of the 55 Silver Bullets. In a close game, the Bullets posted a 21-19 victory eliminating RECO from the tourney.

Outstanding showing from the boys down in Oklahoma despite falling just a bit short. Well done, guys!

Cow Town Classic – March 30th and 31st, 2017  (Shawnee, Kansas)

The first tournament of the 2017 season was held at the Mid-America Sports Complex in Shawnee, Kansas the first weekend of April.

In the 55 AA division, RECO 55s managed by Steve Quinn, posted good tournament results in spite of a rash of injuries that derailed their championship plans.

On Saturday, RECO posted 3 wins against only 1 loss to grab the # 1 seed heading into Sunday’s bracket play.  However, the wins came at a price as 3 key players on the squad went down with injuries that hurt in more ways than one.  On Sunday, RECO was ousted after two games with the final game a tough loss to the KC Renegades by a score of 22-21.

Hoping for a few weeks off and some healing before heading to Tulsa for the Oil City Classic!
