EASLEY — While preparations were being made to welcome the world to Easley for the Big League World Series, a group of local boys was already winning a world series of their own.
The Blue Chip Bulls, based out of Anderson, traveled to Charleston to compete in the CABA Wood Bat World Series in the 15U division and walked away with a championship. Held July 11-18, the Bulls came away with the rings and also a couple of MVP nods in a tournament of more than 360 players.
Easley’s Austin Morgan and the Bulls’ catcher served as the backstop for all nine games the Bulls played, going 9-0 in the Series, and was named Tournament MVP for his efforts and performance. Aaron Schaff, also of Easley, took away some extra hardware of his own, being named Best Pitcher for the Series.
The Bulls’ roster is full of local talent including Easley’s Griffin Cassell, Paul Minerva, Chase Stephens, Mason Stewart, and Trevor Weisner along with Schaff and Morgan. Liberty’s Andrew Stanifer is also a member of the Blue Chip Bulls and a member of the Series winning organization.
