The following is a release from the Burlington Baseball and Softball Association:
The Burlington 12 Year Old All Star baseball team beat Visalia, Cal. 3-2 this afternoon in the Cal Ripken World Series. Visalia won the Ripken World Series last year and was the pre-tournament favorite. Burlington clinched the #1 seed in their division after going 3-1 in pool play and will now play Wednesday night at 5PM in the National Semi-Finals. Great job boys!
A special thanks to the many local sponsors that have donated money to make this experience more memorable for the players:
Snip Its, Delta Auto, The Law Offices of Gary Romagna and Associates, The Liquor Cabinet, State Rep Charley Murphy, Brine's Sporting Goods, Austin Realty, Herb Chambers Auto, Edward Sullivan Funeral Home, Accurate Automotive and the Burlington Police Patrolman's Association.
