Berlin Little League Team Headed to States

BERLIN- The Berlin Little League All-Star season is in full swing this week with one team, the new intermediate 12-13-year-old team heading to Mount Airy tomorrow to compete in the state championship.

The Berlin Little League intermediate team, made up of the top 12-13-year-old players, will start competing for a possible state championship in Mount Airy tomorrow, Saturday, July 6. The tournament runs all week and concludes with a championship game on July 11.

Meanwhile, the other Berlin Little League All-Star teams continued pool play in the respective divisions and age groups this week. The boys’ 9-10 baseball team beat Princess Anne, 10-0, last Saturday and took on Delmar on Tuesday night in a game played too late to be included in this edition. The 9-10 Berlin Little League girls’ softball team, coached by Katie Griffin, who was instrumental in establishing the program in Berlin, got off to a good start in tournament play with an 18-8 win over Snow Hill on Monday.

The Berlin Little League Major League team continued to push forward in an attempt to make it back to the District 8 championship game and possibly a state championship three-peat with another impressive 15-2 win over Pocomoke on Monday. Meanwhile the Junior League team lost a pair of close ones this week including a 5-4 loss to Snow Hill on Monday.
