The 2017 Hometown Heroes tournament brought gorgeous September weather for baseball: not too hot and not too cold. As new memories were forged this weekend, we will not forget to reflect upon and remember the Americans who gave their all to save others on September 11, 2001. Thank you to all of our local and national teams of Police, Emergency Responders and Firefighters - you are the heroes in our hometowns and in our hearts. Final tournament standings are as follows:
In the 11U division, the Lower Dauphin team pulled out a 9-1 win over the Aldie Senators in the final round. Two local teams went head-to-head in the 12U championship as DE Wolfpack Chambers battled the DE Blue Hens, with the Wolfpack leading an 11-5 victory. The 13U Bigbie's Blacksox Wallace went 4-0 for the weekend, ending with an 8-point shutout on Sunday opposite Millburn Baseball. The Vipers Baseball South took the 14U championship following a victorious 15-0 round with the Delmarva Aces East.
