The Bay City-based travel baseball teams head to Kissimmee, Fla., this weekend to take part in one of the nation's premier events, hosted by Walt Disney World at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex. "Honestly, they seem more excited about taking on the best teams in baseball than they are about Disney," Riverdawgs vice president Mark Krzysiak said. "But they'll take advantage of that opportunity." With a wonderland for children as the backdrop, the Riverdawgs are prepared to play some serious ball. Both the 10U and 12U squads earned their way to the World Series, breaking through a ceiling while making Riverdawgs history. "In travel baseball, this is like Williamsport," Krzysiak said. "This is the tournament every team is trying to get to for ages 9-14. We've been trying for eight years and have never been close." Both squads are enjoying monumental success on the travel circuit in 2014. The 10U squad has captured nine tournament championships, including the Michigan Major Elite crown and earned a bid to the Disney World Series with its No. 2 ranking in the Midwest. The 12U team qualified for the World Series with a runner-up showing in the Super NIT.
