The Jackson 96ers 17U team defeated the Jackson 96ers 16U team 3-0 in a classic pitchers duel that went down to the wire to win their 7th NABF World Championship!! World Series MVP, Langston Cotten, would pitch seven (7) shutout innings on the mound for the win. This performance, along with his tournament .580 batting average (two 2Bs, one 3B, four RBI's and 2 game winning walk off hits) would lead the way for the 96ers 17U win.
In the bottom of the 6th inning, Cotten would reach first base after being hit by 96ers 16U pitcher, Rhett Thomas. He would then score the winning run in the bottom of the sixth on a double by Larson Ingram. Seth Sterling would then hit a two run homerun to right center to make the score 3-0. Then Cotten, who pitched a complete game shutout, would then get 2 of his 3 strikeouts in the top of the seventh to shut the door and win the NABF High School World Series for the Jackson 96ers 17U!
