Babe Ruth World Series
Portland Babe Ruth Team goes to World Series –
This run to the World Series has been 3 years in the making for this group of boys from all over Portland. In 2013 the core group was the 1st team from Bayside Little League in Portland to win Districts, and that team ended up one game away from heading to CT for Regionals. The next year as 13 year olds they were one run away from the World Series.
This year as 14 year olds, the finally got the job done, and are headed to Pine Bluff, Arkansas for the 2015 Babe Ruth World Series. However, while everyone was busy celebrating we were informed that Babe Ruth as of this year no longer provides Host Families for the players to stay with. Host families in years past would take in the boys, feed them, and get them to the field. Now, the team needs more hotel rooms, and rental cars to transport the boys to games.
When it is all said and done, it ends up being quite an expense. If you would like to help the team go to Arkansas, please contact Erin Brady at firstname.lastname@example.org
