The Parks Field American All-stars went 5-0 last week to win the 2014 South Carolina Dixie Youth Majors (11-12) District 7 Championship.

Parks Field defeated the Pepperhill/Wescott All-stars 6-0 Saturday in the championship game of the District 7 tournament held at Wescott Park.

Two Parks Field pitchers combined for a no-hitter. Jacob Church threw five innings of the championship but couldn’t finish the game because he had met the 13-inning limit on the hill. Jordan Loving came in for the final inning and secured the shutout.

Camden Rossa had the key hit for Parks Field, a double that drove in three runs.

Parks Field also defeated Parks Circle/Northwood, Carolina League and Moncks Corner en route to claiming the title. Ladson and Hanahan also participated in the tournament.

“These kids represented Parks Field and the Summerville community well,” Parks Field Majors Manager Brian Loving said. “They really jelled during that tournament. It was a solid all-around performance with everyone on the team contributing. Players stepped up when we needed them to. They are playing together as a team better than any team I have ever seen.”

Parks Field advances to play in the South Carolina Dixie Youth Majors Tournament in Florence. There, 12 teams will vie for the Majors state championship. As the District 7 runner-up, Pepperhill/Wescott also advances.

Parks Field’s winning streak was in danger Friday night when the Summerville team faced Moncks Corner. However, center fielder Michael Collins came through with some clutch plays to help Parks Field pull out another victory. Collins made an outstanding catch to end a Moncks Corner threat and ripped a double down the third-base line to plate two runs in the seventh inning.

Church, Loving, Matthew Duncan and Ethan Shaw all pitched for Parks Field during the tournament. Jennings Fowler was the catcher for every inning.

Hayden Fowler and Loving both hit homerun balls during the tournament.

Others contributing to the championship run were Winston Grant, Mason Bucher, Colin Grooms and Geoffrey Schnee.

The team is coached by Loving, Mark Collins and Rett Fowler.
