Deacon Eldridge with a go-ahead home run to seal the Houston Warriors 8U 10-9 win in the bottom of the final inning of the 9U Astros Baseball Festival World Series Championship Game, a tourney organized by Texas USSSA at Baseball USA Powered by Marucci Elite Texas on 7/28/19. Deacon’s dad and HiCast User shared that this was his son’s first kid-pitch home run, and that Deacon also won the 9U homerun derby that weekend. 

Deacon has been a founding member of his team since Spring 2016. Baseball has been his passion since his late great grandmother started him on a tee in the back yard when he was just a toddler. You’ll find him on the field at 1st base, 3rd base, catcher or pitcher.
