Inaugural Urban Youth Academy Wood Bat Christmas Classic

Christopher was drafted on one of the 14U teams at the inaugural Urban Youth Academy Wood Bat Christmas Classic with games beginning today. Tournament play will continue through Dec. 23 and the outcome will determine seeding for the playoffs. The schedule is tentative, weather permitting.

Former Los Angeles Dodger Kenny Landreaux who was on hand during the draft announcement and opening ceremonies, is among one of Christopher's trainers/mentors and batting instructors at the Urban Youth Academy in Compton, CA.

During one of his at-bats, Christopher loads-up and works the count for a base-on-balls.

Christopher at first base stays focused.

Christopher, shortstop, was watched closely by the opposing team's shortstop at second base during the Game 1.

Fielding a ground ball hit up the middle, Christopher prepares to throw the runner out at first base.

In one of the final outs of Game 1, Christopher fields a ball thrown by his catcher team mate to tag the runner out at second on a stolen base attempt.
