Northbrook Green 12U Travel Baseball Continues Tournament Success

Northbrook Green 12U Travel Baseball Continues Tournament Success

Perhaps the only thing hotter than the temperatures being recorded in the Chicago area this summer is the play of the Northbrook Green 12U travel baseball team.


On July 14-15, Northbrook Green captured its third tournament championship in as many weekends, taking home the title in Glenview's Jim Christ Memorial/Neighbors Helping Neighbors tournament.  Northbrook Green finished first in a 14-team field and defeated Lake Shore Feeder Baseball League rival New Trier Green 7-2 in the championship game after defeating Northbrook Black 7-0 in the semi-finals on July 15 at Westbrook Park.  The Glenview title followed championships in the Northbrook Fourth of July tournament and the Mount Prospect Best in Baseball tournament.


Northbrook Green currently leads the Lake Shore Feeder Baseball League's 12A division, which wraps up play with the league's championship games at the 9U through 14U divisions on July 29.   The tournament win in Glenview extended Northbrook Green's winning streak to 23 games, with the team's overall record standing at 24-4.  Northbrook Green will finish its season with a trip to Cooperstown, New York in mid-August, where it will compete with more than 100 teams from across the United States in a tournament at Cooperstown's Dreams Park.


Northbrook Green is made up exclusively of boys from Northbrook who play in the Northbrook Baseball house league before the travel season begins.  The team includes Evan Barnes, Ben Boeke, Brandon Coleman, Jackson Duncan, Jack Garibaldi, Ben Harkey, Jimmy Karfis, Chris Niswonger, David Rubin, Daniel Spencer, Ryan Veith and Nick Woloszyn.  Northbrook Green's head coach is Stuart Spiegel, and he is assisted by Gus Locallo, Howard Goldberg, Jimmy Karfis, and Larry Rubin.
