The Big Foot Red Sox 12U baseball team finished fourth in the regular season in the seven-team West Division of the Quad County Conference with a record of 8-5-1. Whitewater Burtness Chevrolet was first with a record of 11-3.

The Red Sox then competed in the end-of-season tournament in East Troy July 19 to 21. The tournament was split into two divisions, the Gold and Silver divisions. The Red Sox were seeded sixth in the seven-team Gold division tournament.

The team lost the first game in the tournament against third seeded Whitewater Burtness Chevrolet. But this is a double-loss tournament and it takes two losses to send a team home.

Following the loss, the Red Sox then beat Elkhorn Hudapack, Palmyra, Whitewater Burtness and the East Troy Braves teams to land a spot against the Whitewater Toppers in the championship game on that Sunday.

In the championship game, Big Foot lost to the Whitewater Toppers, ending their season in second place.
