West End 15's finish 3rd in World Series

 

 

West End lost in the semi-final game 5 – 4 in 9 innings to the World Series Champions West Chester, California and finished 4 – 2 in the World Series with both losses by 1 run.

Tom Ott said it best and I “quote”

"Every journey has a beginning& ending.

The 2015 West End 13 -1 5 team made a town very proud. You played w/heart, passion and a “Never give up” attitude. You were District, State and Regional Champs and 3rd place in the country!You made an everlasting impression on the “host families” there in Lawrenceburg, Tn. And have memories that will last long after the scoreboard turns off.”

 

Jim Winder (President)

 

West End Proud!
