The 18U Merchants won the Seattle Elite title with a 2 game sweep over the PC Diamond Jaxx. The 18U ballclub then went on to win 4 games in Portland to end the summer with a 51-10 record! The Seattle Elite 18U title makes Craig Bishop the only head coach to win the Seattle Premier League title (Taylor Baseball 2010) and Seattle Elite title.  The 16U team added 49 wins of their own to set an amazing record of 100 wins between the 2 levels. 

The 18's added the Pro Player 4th of July to title list and the 16U team won the Art Wright Memorial Day Classic as well as the locally played 16U CABA World Series. The 15U team chipped in with winning the title at the  Palouse Summer Series. 

For the second consecutive year the Merchants program won over 170 games through the 5 levels.
