The next chapter in the long and storied tradition of Mifflin County Babe Ruth baseball will be written this weekend when our local 13- and 15-year-olds take part in the Middle Atlantic Region tournaments.

The 15’s will play a double-elimination tournament in Lackawanna. The team’s first game will be against Frederick County (MD) on Thursday July 22) afternoon at four. The winner of that one gets Rutherford (NNJ) on Friday morning at 10 while the loser drops down to play the Atlantic Shore (SNJ) and Lackawanna (host) game on Friday at three in the loser’s bracket.

The 13’s will play a pool play tournament, taking on Cinnaminson of Southern New Jersey in their first game on Friday at two. Saturday, the locals get Hillsborough (NNJ) at 11 a.m. and then finish up pool play on Sunday against Frederick County (MD) at two in the afternoon. The quarterfinals will get underway on Monday.
