Team Louisiana-Ardoin Wins 2020 Future Stars Series 2023 Grad Class Tournament

July 20, 2020

Danny Ardoin’s Team Louisiana group capped off a strong run at the 2020 New Balance Baseball Future Stars Series powered by Program 15 2023 Grad Class Tournament with a thrilling, 3-2 win in the championship game in Lake Charles on Sunday night.

The former major-league catcher was more than happy to accept the trophy — his first in an FSS event — after the game, but the focus was on his players, particularly starter Tate Hess, who pitched into the seventh inning and overcame a collision on the basepaths late in the game to keep giving his team a chance to win.
