[JULY 14, 2003]  Following an action-packed season of baseball, an all-star team was selected from Bronco League players for Lincoln, Mason City and Mount Pulaski. In preparation for the Pony League regional tournament for 11- and 12-year-olds, which will be hosted by Lincoln beginning Monday, July 14, the Lincoln Area All-Stars have been busy playing six games in four days. The team is sponsored by Triple T Promotionals.

First, Triple T played an exhibition doubleheader against McLean County, winning the first game 8-6. Kyle Young was perfect at the plate, going 4-for-4, scoring two runs and knocking in two. Cole Brownfield and Alex Bradshaw each contributed two hits on the night. In the second game, Triple T was bested by McLean County 16-9. Perfect at the plate in the game was Brett Montgomery, who went 4-for-4, scoring two runs. Kyle Young and Dylan Eimer each had two hits.

Next, Triple T participated in the Chatham Invitational Friday-Sunday. Getting off to a slow start, the Lincoln Area All-Stars lost their first two games, then bounced back to win their next two. In Game 1, Triple T lost 10-0 to the host Chatham Slam. The Slam held Triple T to two hits in the game, one by Brett Montgomery and the other by Kyle Young. In Game 2, against Edwardsville, Triple T got off to a good start, leading 3-0 before mistakes in the field took them out of the game for a 13-3 final. Hits in the game came from Brett Montgomery, Devon Biggs, Trent Gardner and Matt Leslie.

The Lincoln area team seemed to hit its stride in its final two games of the invitational, defeating Mount Zion 6-4 in Game 3. For a change, it was pitching that set the tone for the game. Tad Juilfs pitched four solid innings, giving up only two earned runs while striking out seven. Bryce Hunsley relieved Juilfs, pitching three innings and not allowing a run. Juilfs helped his own cause at the plate with two hits and three RBIs. Alex Bradshaw also contributed well at the plate, with two hits and two runs scored.

Triple T Promotionals' best game came on Sunday afternoon, as they defeated the Chatham Cobras 14-5 in Game 4 of the invitational. In this game, the Lincoln Area All-Stars combined good pitching with good hitting. Brett Montgomery, Tyson Smith and Kyle Young combined to hold the Chatham team to four hits and only two earned runs. Montgomery had three hits and scored two runs. Smith was 2-for-2 with three runs scored. Alex Bradshaw had his third multiple-hit game of the all-star season, with two singles.

The Lincoln Area All-Stars play their first game as hosts in the Pony League tournament on the Bronco field Tuesday evening at 8.
