The Poughkeepsie 12u Lightning team has secured itself a spot in the Cal Ripken World Series in Branson, Missouri. The team will travel to the World Series July 31 - August 12 to compete for the Cal Ripken title. The boys and their families have been actively fundraising for almost a year. However, the expenses are astronomical. Therefore, all fundraising efforts continue, it is our hope to comfortably send the boys to Branson for a once in a lifetime, memorable World Series.
