After clinching regional crown, team focused on World Series
It was history in the making. The shock and amazement is still yet to sink in – the 14U Babe Ruth All Stars are the Pacific Northwest Regional softball champions. In five games, the Stars posted a 4-1 record and outscored their opponents by an 81-49 margin, capping this inspiring run with a 23-13 victory over Kuna in the title game played Friday at Settlers Park in Meridian.

The Dalles 14U Babe Ruth All-Stars girls’ softball team has made it to the World Series in Florida, reportedly the first time any local team has done so. The girls had a n explosive 12 run seventh inning Friday in regional play in Meridian, Idaho, to defeat challenger Kuna, Idaho.
The season may be over, but The Dalles 10U Little League All-Stars came about as close as possible to possibly snagging a championship at the Oregon State Little League Tournament.
The Dalles Swim Team summer season is only nine weeks long, but Coach Scott McKay is impressed with how the team has learned from its short time together. “Our first meet was our Ted Walker Swim Meet in June after just two weeks of practice, but they did very well for so little time in the water,” McKay said.
It might have been a bit of a slow start for the baseball team, but it turned out to be a very good night for The Dalles 15U Babe Ruth All-Stars. Playing at Traner Field in Hood River, the team from The Dalles used timely hitting and solid pitching to methodically overpower West Linn, winning by a final tally of 11-1.
It’s all on the line this week as The Dalles 14U Babe Ruth All-Stars softball team jumps into tournament action in Meridian, Idaho. The team has two games on Thursday. The first game – scheduled for Thursday morning -- is against Kuna, Idaho, and the second game, which will start just after noon, will be against Meridian, the team hosting this year’s tournament.
