Mason, now an eighth-grader at King Philip Middle School in West Hartford, has been a member of the Bulldogs since the team’s inception in the 10U division.

The 12U Bulldogs had amazing success this summer, winning their district, the state championship, and the regional championship. They won three games in the World Series in Branson, MO, before losing 9-7 to New Zealand – the first international team they faced – on Aug. 6.

This summer was the second time that the Bulldogs reached the World Series, and the second time Mason won the Gold Glove award. As a 10U team in 2017, the Bulldogs also won their region and earned a berth in the World Series which was held in Hammond, IN.

Since 2017, the Bulldogs compiled a 76-18 record.

Mason, a shortstop, was also named to the U.S. Cal Ripken All-Defensive Team at the 2019 World Series.
