The Washington Twp 10u Blue finished off a great weekend of baseball by winning the 2016 Cornfield Classic Tournament in Woodstown. The Minutemen defeated Egg Harbor Twp 9-6 in the championship game to capture the title. After going 1-1 in pool play, they were seeded 4th. They had to defeat the #5 seed Tri State Arsenal (12-2), then the #1 seed Woodstown Heat (11-1) and finally the #2 seed Egg Harbor Twp all in one day. The Minutemen used the long ball throughout the weekend as Jared Dzierzgowski hit two homers and Chris Racobaldo had one. After losing in the semi-finals in both the MSI and Ripken Tournaments getting this tournament win was rewarding. Congratulations to all of the players and coaches
