In the past month, the West Salisbury (WS) Junior team spent about a week in Maugansville Maryland (near Hagerstown) participating in the MD state tournament. The boys went undefeated winning the MD state title, outscoring their opponents 54-5. In the past week, the boys have been in Freehold Township New Jersey participating in the East Regional Tournament, competing against ten state champions from Delaware to Maine. Representing Maryland, WS swept the winner's bracket of the tournament going 5-0, winning the East Region title. In the championship game yesterday, WS and the New Jersey state champion played 12 innings and about 3 1/2 hours of ball, with WS getting an epic 7-6 win.
Now, the boys who practice and play on Pemberton Drive are heading to Taylor Michigan for the Junior LL World Series. In Michigan, the WS boys are one of the final five juniors teams remaining in the US tournament.
Tonight (Thursday August 11th) at 6pm at West Salisbury Little League on Pemberton Drive, there will be a send-off celebration to wish the kids and coaches a safe and fun journey. The community is welcomed to attend.
