     SHEPHERDSVILLE – A number of local baseball All-Star teams will be taking part in Kentucky Babe Ruth State Tournaments this week.

    The team playing closest to home will be the Mount Washington Under-15 All-Stars who will be playing at Germantown in Louisville. That team is coming off a third-place finish in the last week’s combined district tournament at St. Matthews.

    SAINT MATTHEWS – It was a super Saturday for the Mount Washington Under-15 All-Stars as the team won its first two games in the District 8, 9, 10, 11 Babe Ruth Tournament at St. Matthews Community Park.

         Those two wins put coach Mark Deetsch’s team into the winner’s bracket championship game on Sunday. It was at that point that reality hit the Mount Washington team as a Germantown squad filled with high school players continued to romp through the tournament with a lopsided win.

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – A tough opening loss put the Mount Washington Under-12 All-Stars behind the eight ball in the Combined Cal Ripken District 10 and 11 Tournament which the local league was hosting.

         Coach Channing Branham’s team battled back for a win in the loser’s bracket a day later, but a second game that day in the loser’s bracket went against the local team and they were eliminated with a 1-2 record.

  • Barren Co. cools MW U-8 All-Stars

     FERN CREEK –  After a hot start the Mount Washington U-8 All-Stars cooled off quickly in the quarter-finals of the Babe Ruth Kentucky State Tournament on Saturday at Fern Creek Park in Louisville.

    In the opening games of ‘pool’ play, the team coached by Dave Johnston slipped past Jeffersontown 15-13 and then crushed Fern Creek Orange by a 23-9 score. Those games were played on Thursday and Friday.

    That left the team with the number two seed from the pool heading into the quarter-finals.
