Cardinals Win West Little League Title; 2nd In Town Championship
2017 West Little League Champions: Cardinals
Congratulations to the Cardinals, who won the Western Baseball League Little League championship by defeating the Royals 6-5. The Cardinals then finished second in the town championship, beating the North Reds before losing twice to the South Yankees. This is the first West LL team to win a town championship game in at least five years, so great job by all the boys and coaches.
A note from Cardinals head coach Jim Richert:
"The Cardinals would like to thank the entire WEST family for your support during the Town Championship series! Whether you were in the stands or sending us notes of encouragement or helping out at our home game -- the boys felt your support. It was a privilege to represent West and we are very proud of the way the boys competed against very strong competition. Congratulations to the South Yankees.
Best of luck to all of West's All-Star teams in the coming weeks -- LET'S GO WEST!!!"
The following players and coaches were selected to represent Western Little League during the District 5 All-Star tournaments later this month. Congratulations to all the boys and coaches for a great season and good luck in the district tournaments!
