The U12 Boys’ were eliminated from the tournament last night. They suffered two tough losses this week to JBAB and Banneker City. In the JBAB game, CHLL had the winning run on second base in the bottom of the 8th inning, but couldn’t put the run across and fell 8-7. In the Banneker game, the boys led 2-0 but couldn’t hold the lead and lost 10-4. It was great season! Thanks to everyone who helped with the team and came out to see them!

The CHLL 10U and 11U both had outstanding tournaments, but both fell short to CapCity in the semi-finals.
