Team Marquez Takes AAU International Men’s Fastpitch Championship Crown Behind Tony Mancha, Erik Ochoa

Team Marquez Takes AAU International Men’s Fastpitch Championship Crown Behind Tony Mancha, Erik Ochoa

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (Jan. 25, 2016) – While cold weather and historic snow pummeled most of the East Coast, 24 teams from across the world – including the Czech Republic, Canada, Puerto Rico, Argentina, Mexico and Venezuela – and more than 450 athletes traveled to ESPN Wide World of Sports at Walt Disney World Resort for four days of AAU International Men’s Fastpitch Championship action.

Paced by elite performances from Tony Mancha (Las Cruces, N.M.) and Erik Ochoa (Mexicali, B.C.), it was Team Marquez who improved on last year’s second-place finish to take the crown in the 2016 AAU International Men’s Fastpitch Championship.

Mancha, a dominant pitcher for Team USA and the event’s Most Outstanding Pitcher, and Ochoa, who earned Most Valuable Player honors, helped Team Marquez steamroll their way through bracket play. Outscoring opponents 25-1 across four games, Team Marquez recorded three shutouts in four contests, including Sunday afternoon’s 2-0 championship victory over the A1 Bombers.

The annual event ends its run at ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex at Walt Disney World Resort, as the event will be moving to a different location in 2017.

Full results and event information can be found here.
