The 2014 Winchester Baseball program began in the middle of March. There were 54- eleven and twelve year old boys that started out together. They formed teams and played against each other for eight consecutive weeks. There were strike outs, walks and home runs. There were shutouts and slaughters, but these young men played with passion and had fun.
There were 54 boys and then there were 12. 12 boys made the All-Star team, for six weeks they traveled over a four state region playing other teams from other states and regions. The Boys of Winchester won a few games and lost a few games. They learned to won with grace and lose with dignity.
Baseball is an American passion that builds the character of young men amd women, along with lifelong friendships and memories. The Boys of Winchester won the Virginia State Championship for 2014 for the 11 year old boys.
As a result they have been invited to go to Altamonte Springs, Florida to represent the Virginia Babe Ruth/Cal Ripken Baseball program for the 11 year old boys. Our boys want to earn the title as Regional Champs for the Southeast District.
12 young men that poured their hearts out every weekend for nearly 14 weeks on the baseball fields across four states in order to defend their 2013 Virginia State Championship by winning the 2014 Virignia State Championship. They played long and hard in the cold, the rain and the heat with the love of the game in order to be Ambassadors for their families, their city and the Commonwealth.
