During the 11-12-year-old Little League inter-city team tournament in June, Imperial's Brock Moore proved to be one of the better baseball players competing, leading his team to the Valley championship.
In the 11-12-year-old Little League District 22 all-star tournament, Moore is again proving to be a standout for Imperial.
On Wednesday he pitched a no-hitter against the Sunbeam all-stars, leading Imperial to a 1-0 victory.
"When I went into that game I wasn't even thinking about throwing a no-hitter. I just wanted to go and pitch," said the 12-year-old Moore. "I really wasn't throwing that good the first few innings. It wasn't until about the third or fourth inning that I actually found my rhythm."
Once Moore did find his rhythm he was unstoppable. He mowed down Sunbeam batters, striking out a total of 13.
"It wasn't until about the fourth inning that I started realizing that I could throw the no-hitter. Then I felt really good about my chances in the fifth. It was in the fifth that I just told myself that I wasn't going to let anyone on base," said Moore. "I think I started getting into the batters' minds. I could tell that they were getting a little scared."
