West End HISTORY Made
For the fourth year in a row, West End Babe Ruth Baseball made History.
In 2013, West End Babe Ruth baseball had 2 teams (13 and 15 year olds) advance to the Middle Atlantic Regional Tournaments. For the second year in a row, West End placed all 3 age groups into the State Final Four. West End's 13 yr olds and 15 yr olds won their respective State Championships to add two more State Championship trophies to the case.
In 2012, West End Babe Ruth Baseball won all 3 District Titles earning this accomplishment back to back years! Even more impressive is that West End made State History. For only the 2nd time in Pennsylvania State History, a league put all 3 Age groups into the State Final Four. West End's 13 yr olds lost in the State Championship to Pottsville, the 14 yr olds lost in the State Championship to Bensalem, while the 15 yr olds lost in the State SemiFinals to Valley. West End joins Mifflin County as the only 2 leagues in Pennsylvania history to put all 3 Age Groups in the Pennsylvania State Final Four!
In 2011, West End Babe Ruth baseball won all 3 District Titles! The 13 yr olds defeated State College in a 12-10 thriller! The 13 yr olds trailed 10-3 entering the 6th inning when they scored 9 runs to take the lead. The 14 yr olds down 7-0 after 2 innings, defeated Keystone 18-8 for a wild comeback victory. The 15 yr olds defeated Potter McKean 16-3 and completed the sweep of District 8 Tournaments for West End Baseball.
In 2010, West End Babe Ruth baseball had 2 teams (13 and 14 year olds) advance to the Middle Atlantic Regional Tournaments. West End brought 2 more State Championships, a Middle Atlantic Regional Championship, and a 3rd place in the World Series home in 2010 and continue to add to the trophy case.
