The Mathews Ford Oregon Jr. Eagles 9U baseball team won the 13th Annual Tony Mass Invitational baseball tournament over the Memorial Day Weekend at Railway Park in Walbridge.

The Jr. Eagles were a perfect 4-0, defeating the Oregon Jr. Eagles Gold 10U team in the championship game, 5-3. Seven teams took part in the tournament named after the long time coach of the Walbridge Cubs, Tony Mass.

Mathews Ford Oregon remains unbeaten in the Northwest Ohio Amateur Baseball League at 5-0, and their season record is 15-3. The team recently won the Oregon Dusty Gloves tournament in April as well.

Team manager Jerry Eversman said, "This was a tournament for 9- and 10-year olds and with a team of all 9-year-olds, we were really pleased at how well they played."

He added, "Coach Mike Row's 10U Jr. Eagles team, who we played in the finals, is a good ballclub who defeated a good NWO Raptors team to get to the championship game. Our depth in pitching helped us win the championship game."
