STATE TOURNAMENT NEWS
Congratulations to the Taunton Babe Ruth 13U Team.
Our Taunton Babe Ruth 13U Eastern MASS State Champions had a fantastic 5 days in Rochester, NH playing some of the best baseball ever. After playing Western MA (Pittsfield), Rochester, NH, and the team from Maine, our Taunton Babe Ruth 13U team made it into the semi-finals for the New England Regional title. On Wednesday, 7/27, our Taunton 13s played the team from CT (Waterford), and played their hearts out, never giving up and coming back to tie it up in the 5th inning. CT was able to score one run in the bottom of the 6th and held off the Taunton 13's in the top of the 7th, with final score of Taunton 6, CT 7.
We are so proud of every single member of the team and the coaches. You played like a team, you worked hard like a team and you are all winners. Thank you to the members of the team, the fantastic coaching staff, and of course, the parents, families, and friends for supporting the team!
