— Local 12U Hit and Run Outlaws went on a tear in Cooperstown, NY, this past week, finishing fifth out of 104 teams from across the United States and Canada.

They went 8-0 and then lost to the Milwaukee Angels from Wisconsin, with a score of 8-7 in a game which could have gone either way.

Had they won, they were one game out from the championship.

The boys will remember their Cooperstown experience for a lifetime.

The team will soon be returning to play at Ripken Stadium in Aberdeen, Md.
