Pierre Jones got the tournament started with a leadoff home run in the top of the first. He finished the game 4-for-4 with three homers and a triple, as Illinois defeated Washington 12-2 in five innings.
First baseman Trey Hondras made a splash in his own way, when ESPN revealed his pre-game ritual.
The rest of the field better be ready, as Jackie Robinson West is here and they have their eyes on the prize.
